But my biggest problem is finding companies that carry my shade at all. Even though it is 2017, there are still companies that do not carry a diversity of shades or tones.

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays with family and friends; eating great food and creating new memories. With that said, as the new year is approaching, it is time to educate you all on mascara. Now, mascaras are a great way to create definition, volume, and length without the use of faux lashes. But not all wands are created equal.
I have created a handy guide to help you pick the right mascara for the occasion.
I wear a winged tip every DAY! At work, when shopping around town, at the bars; I feel naked if I don’t create a classic cat eye. But with many styles and shapes out there, you can be very flexible about look you want to go for.
Felt-tip eyeliners are designed for precise application without tugging or smudging. Most tips are fine so when pressed lightly you can keep the shape simple; press harder you can have a bolder look.
Here are some amazing felt tip eyeliners out there! Listed from budget-friendly to splurging.
