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 theĀ BENEFIT HIGH BROW PEN

what’s in my bag?

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!

6. benefit, fake up (concealer) – *anti-crease concealer with staying power
