Insider makeup tip from the set of “Confessions of a Shopaholic”

screenshot016.jpg

I loved the book “Confessions of a Shopaholic” by Sophie Kinsella and I’m really to see Isla Fisher playing Rebecca Bloomwood in the new movie. I just got a tip last night of the mascara exclusively used on the “Confessions of a Shopaholic” was Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara! Celebrity make-up artist, Elaine Offers had this to say:

Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara is a must have in my makeup kit when on location…just used it on Isla Fisher during filming of “Confessions of a Shopaholic”…It volumizes beautifully, while conditioning lashes with olive and almond oil.”

Helps control creasing, streaking and fading. Makeup goes on more easily, blends smoothly. Also provides an occlusive barrier to prevent moisture loss.

Eye-Fix Primer is a great shadow base it helps keep my eyeshadow looking great and the colors vibrant all day. One of my favorite things is how well it blends into my eyelids and evens out my skin tone without leaving my eyes looking too made up.

My Review: Anastasia’s Tinted Brow Gel

anastasia_tintedbrowgel.jpg

I have fallen in love with almost every Anastasia product I’ve tried.  I was sent a big package full of their products, and over the last several weeks I’ve been playing around with all of them.  So much fun!

One of the products that I’ve found myself using more than just about all of them, is Anastasia’s Tinted Brow Gel.  I avoided it for a while, because I couldn’t imagine putting something shimmery in my eyebrows.  But one day I tried it, and I absolutely LOVED it!

It makes my eyebrows look like I’ve given them highlights!  It’s kind of hard to describe I guess, I’ll just tell you that I love it, and it will be a makeup staple of mine from now on!

For those with thin, sparse brows, this unique, botanical formula actually plumps the hair follicle, giving the appearance of fuller, thicker brows. The combination of cream and gel effortlessly defines and fills in brows while controlling and shaping without flaking or fading.

The non-greasy formula can easily be removed at night with a facial cleanser or makeup remover. Housed in a sleek, portable tube that allows for precise, no-mess application, Anastasia’s Tinted Brow Gel is perfect for instant brow touch-ups – anyplace, anytime, plus it’s the must-have tool for any beauty-savvy woman.
