DIY Firework Lashes

Materials:

  • Artificial lashes of your choice (I used Dodo Lashes, style D115).
  • Cosmetic grade glitter.
  • Glitter adhesive (I used Sprinkles Glue from Beauty Bakerie).

Process:

  • While leaving your lashes in their tray, brush a third (or however much you are wanting for your first glitter) with glitter adhesive.
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the lash.
  • After the tops have dried fully, gently remove them from their tray, and repeat the process with the bottom side of the lashes.
  • Once both sides have dried, you are ready to apply.

Thanks for reading and have a great 4th of July! 🤗

Invisibobble Hair Rings

So at first look, I must admit these did not catch my eye….but what changed? Here is a little back story. I am a natural brunette who has very light bleached blonde hair. It is very fragile and requires a lot of extra special care and attention to keep it looking healthy. Most days (if I am being honest) my hair is up in some sort of a messy bun, and like most girls, I would use the regular, circular hair ties (like these). While reading through various blogs and Instagram accounts that I follow, I came across a post about the damage that traditional hair ties can cause, and when I say damage, I mean breakage. The worst word to be spoken in front of any bleached blonde.

So I began to do a little research. I like to use Ulta as a starting point for research because they usually have tons of reviews for the items they carry. In my research I found that these strange looking hair ties were quite remarkable and were rated 4.5/5.0 (based on 106 reviews). Many people stated that they did not hurt their head like other types of hair ties, that they don’t pull or break the hair, that they do not leave an indent pattern on the hair when removed and the list goes on and on.

First and foremost I wanted something that could easily be camouflaged in my hair. Second, I needed a hair tie that was sturdy and would hold all day without the need to readjust from slipping. Based on the reviews I read, I thought I’d try them out.

So glad that I did! These are a great product and the story behind the company is rather cute as well. One most women can relate to.

While a price point of $7.95 for a quantity of 3 might seem a tad high; once you try these for yourself you will quickly realize that they are totally worth it. I’ve even thrown away all my old hair bands. The Invisibobble hair ties come in a variety of colors, but I love the clear version because it is easily concealed when I put my hair up.

In the weeks I have used them (and again, I wear my hair up most days), I have noticed less tangling, more comfort throughout the day, and on a huge positive note, my messy buns have never looked better…BONUS! 🙂

These modern miracles are available at Ulta or on the Invisibobble website.

Melt Radioactive Stack


The new MeltRadioactive stack launched on January 25th. I had been waiting patiently for this stack of bright pigmented colors to be released, and finally it was here! These colors are very different from the previous stacks released by Melt (which are also amazing). They are bright, build-able, and long-lasting.

I realize these neon-esque colors may not be for everyone, but even if you were only thinking of using them as accent colors, they would totally be worth the money.

At $48, the shadows come in a magnetized stack of four large pans. It may seem a bit pricey, but really it’s not. You are buying four, very pigmented eyeshadows where a little goes a long way.

For those of you who don’t see yourself sporting neon eyelids, I would emphatically recommend one of the other stacks from Melt. I own all three, and wear them most days. The other two stacks are Dark Matter, which includes four matte, warm neutral colors; and Love Sick, which includes matte and shimmer shadows in beautiful warm and cool shades.

Kat Von D – Tattoo Liner

  
Just recently named the #1 eyeliner at Sephora, and for good reason! No joke, this is the holy grail of eyeliners, hands down! I’ve been a repeat user of Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner since I first tried it a few years ago. Nothing I have used before or since has even come close to the quality and precision of what this liner can do. It is the blackest of blacks, long-wearing, smudge proof, and the list of compliments go on and on. If you have yet to try this eyeliner, do yourself a favor. What are you waiting for, the verdict is in!
