“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” (Audrey Hepburn).
When applying makeup, I always focus on my eyes – trying to make them standout, look bigger, and more open. I’ve never been a fan of fake/false lashes because they rarely look natural, so for me mascara is key! Mascara darkens, thickens, and lengthens lashes which ultimately opens and enhances your eyes.

A couple months ago, I signed up for Influenster, a site where “social savvy shoppers” can stay on top of the latest product news, review products, and receive free products (“VoxBox”) based on their social media presence.

I’m not 100% loyal to any one brand, but more recently, I have been using Pantene, LUSH, Redkin, and anything I get in my Ipsy subscription box.
