snap, crackle & pop!

brow highlighter is an often over-looked and under-utilized tool by make-up users everywhere. at a young age, i learned about the magic of “opening up” my eyes by using a light shadow (usually some shade on the white/pale pink spectrum) at the inner corners of my eyes as well as under the brow. i was a dancer and then, yes, a cheerleader and the importance of making my eyes POP was essential for center stage. i’m not talking clown make-up, ladies, but a little swipe (don’t forget to blend) of highlighter under your arch adds so much life to your eyes. it’s as simple as that!

i’m currently loving the BENEFIT HIGH BROW PEN

my bag

clearly i had a little fun at sephora today! after spending 2 hours in one of my favorite stores (and with the help of a lovely make-up specialist to teach me about the new MJB line!) , i left with an assortment of goodies to brighten, heighten and enhance! i thought i’d give my ladies a sneak peek of what’s currently in my beauty bag…

1. sephora brand, transparent brow gel – *for taming unruly eyebrows

2. benefit, high brow (lightening pencil) – *to add lift to your brow line and widen/brighten the look of your eye

3. marc jacobs beauty, bronzer – *contouring is essential and good bronzer is key!

4. smashbox, eye shadow palette in sepia – *3 shadows, sans-shimmer, for the perfect every day look

5. deborah lippmann, nail polish, “happy birthday” – *because you can never go wrong with glitter!

Damn Girl, Get Ahold of Those Things

       Have you ever woken up to your brows looking like a hot mess? I just love when I look in the mirror and half of my brow is sticking up and the other half is pointing in G-d only knows what direction.

Well, Anastasia Brow Gel is here to save the day! Just glide the brush over your brows to straighten them out and teach them who’s the boss. Your brows will stay put (and be conditioned) the whole day through.

Tinted gels are also available in Blonde and Brunette to give you a little color if you so need it.

A word to the wise, be sure you don’t confuse this bottle with your mascara. Black mascara on your brows would not be pretty!

Girl on Top Shows You Here!

*Anastasia is available at Sephora.
