The Three Beauty Products that Eye Love
See what I did there? These days, I have my everyday beauty routine down to around 2 minutes...that is if I am lucky enough to find those 2 minutes, Ha! My lineup consists of tinted moisturizer, bronzer, lip tint, under eye concealer, a brow pencil and mascara. The eye products definitely make me feel the most put together, or make me look the most awake, which are really one in the same these days! I tend to save eye liner and eye shadow for a night out or a special event, but the eye color stick I mention below can work as both and really only adds a few seconds!
Trish Mc Evoy Lash Curling Mascara My all-time favorite reality TV star, Camera Eubanks of Bravo's Southern Charm (and previously MTV's Real World) raved about this mascara one day on her instagram stories. It didn't take me long to run and buy it - I know, I'm a sucker. While it is a great mascara, what I love most about this product is the way it comes off when I wash my face at the end of the day. You can literally pull the tubes of mascara off your lashes without rubbing your eyes and without makeup remover. I no longer have to worry about mascara flakes or raccoon eyes. For someone like me with extremely sensitive skin around my eyes this is an absolute game changer! I was always a devout drug store mascara purchaser, but there is no way I can turn back after finding this product.
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color - I first learned about this from blogger, Emily Schuman of Cuplacakes and Cashmere. I have followed Emily's blog for over 5 years and this is a go-to item for her. I tend to like her style and take notice when she repeats an item in her beauty routine. I find that it is versatile and I will alternate how I use it - as a liner vs. eye shadow. I have dry skin and I like that this is creamy. I have the burnished bronze color, but the entire palette is beautiful.
Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil Ultra-Fine Shape & Define Pencil - there was not one thing that drew me to this product other than I knew Benefit was known for their eyebrow bar and I was in need of a new brow pencil. I walked by a Benefit store in Boston this past August and this was the product that was recommended to me by the saleswoman. I like that you can make this as light or dramatic as you like. It is very easy to use and one end is an eyebrow brush that you can use to both style and blend. It looks natural and stays put all day, what more can you ask for?
