Hot Right Now: Yellow Eye Shadow

GET THE LOOK: “Bright primary colors are so in for clothes right now, but you should diffuse them for your makeup,” advises makeup artist Natalie DiStefano of the Rita Hazan Salon in NYC. “Easter yellow is too full force, distracting and unflattering,” says DiStefano, who recommends hues with shimmer to dilute the shade.

INSIDER TRICK: One word: Cream. “Straight yellow powder can look chalky, so look for a cream shadow you can easily spread and control,” adds DiStefano.

The perfect liquid liner!

I buy a lot of Dior products, not gonna lie.  I love using them, they are such great quality – and will last all day.  It’s nice to not have to re-apply makeup half way through the day.  Dior products stay fresh, and looking amazing, all day.

I have noticed that liquid liner is making a strong comeback with celebrities.  I love how Penelope has her eyeliner, it’s almost the “cat eyes” look.  I decided to brush off my liquid liner that I’ve had for years, and give it a try.  Of course, the liner was so old, it flaked off when it dried.  So I headed to Sephora, and thought I’d pick up Dior’s Style Liner, and give it a shot. 

The liquid liner does take some time getting used to, but once you’ve got it down – it can be well worth it!

Better than Diorshow??

I got hooked on Diorshow last year but as great as it was I noticied that after 2 months of use it seemed to flake pretty bad and it would wear off before the end of my day.  At $23 a tube I would expect it to last the full 6 months container life it promises on the side. Though I do think it is an amazing mascara I thought it started drying out too quickly so I started trying new mascaras recently.

 After trying a few big Sephora brands I decided to hit the drugstore and try out the more affordable brands. One of the first mascaras I tried was Cover Girl LashExact mascara and I absolutely love it! Instead of the normal wand with bristles the lash exact has silicone like bristles I was a little apprhensive about how well it would go on. To my surprise the mascara goes on super smooth and not only does it add a lot of volume without clumps it made my eyelashes look a lot longer.

I have only been using it for a few weeks so I will update once I find out about the longevity of each tube for only $7 this gives you all the volume of Diorshow and adds serious length.
