REVIEW: Benefit’s “They’re Real Push Up Liner” is magical.

Benefit-Theyre-Real-Push-Up-Liner_lash-hugging-gel-liner-pen

I bought this liner over the weekend – and I’m absolutely DYING over how amazing it is!

Eyeliner is a tricky thing to get right. Especially gel liner. It goes wonky so easily. The lash-hugging pen makes perfectly precise liner easier than you can dream!

You don’t have to worry about slipping – or messing up! This pen makes gel liner look effortless! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

It’s the first ever lash-hugging gel liner in a pen! This matte black gel formula won’t smudge, budge or dry out, and the innovative soft AccuFlex Tip hugs your lashline from corner to corner. The closer the line, the bigger the eye!

91% said it was longwearing*
81% said it was waterproof*
88% said it hugged the lashline* 84% said eyes looked visibly larger*
*Results observed in a consumer panel survey on 32 women after 2 weeks

NYFW: Blue Smoke Beauty Look: Pro Tips to Get the Look at Home‏

192861acf361534b77eaee5f86dd597d

New York Fashion Week is officially here! In case you can’t make it to NYC, Mary Kay Celeb Makeup Artist Luis Casco is on the scene at Lincoln Center scoping out the hottest beauty trends to share with you and your readers.

Inspired by sapphire smoky eyes seen around NYC, Luis created a soft, smoky doe-eyed look called Blue Smoke that’s perfect for special daytime events, but can be easily adapted for night.

Follow Luis’ tips below to get this Fashion Week look at home:

  • Start with an eye primer for serious lasting power.
  • Sweep a shimmery champagne eye shadow onto lids as a base and across brow bone to highlight.

Using Limited Edition Mary Kay® Midnight Jewels Eye Color Palette in Sapphire Noir:

  • Smudge the darker blue shadow along upper lash line and outer third of lower lash line.
  • Apply the lighter blue shade from lash line to crease and blend upward to create a rounded shape.
  • To really get that doe-eyed look, curl eyelashes before applying two coats of lengthening mascara to top and bottom lashes.

Focus on the eyes and keep the rest of the face simply glowing by lightly sweeping bronzer all over the face and applying sheer peachy blush on the apples of the cheeks.

Apply a nude lipstick like Limited Edition Mary Kay® Midnight Jewels Semi-Matte Lipstick in Pink Moonstone. Keep the look fresh with Mary Kay® Makeup Finishing Spray by Skindinävia.

To take this Fashion Week chic look from day to night, use black gel eyeliner on your upper lids and add an extra coat of black mascara for some extra drama!

Here you go – your first look at MAC’s collaboration with the Simpsons! The collection will hit the web on August 28, stores September 4, and today you’re getting your first look!

The wait is over for some at the end of the month, with a one-day sale and sneak peek of the Marge Simpson-inspired collection taking place on Saturday, July 26, at the MAC Cosmetics store in the Gaslamp District (234 Fifth Avenue, San Diego) during Comic-Con.

Of her favorite pieces in the collection, Marge “says” in a release, “They’re all so great, but I must say that Lisa’s Spikes really works well with my skin tone and of course, Beehive Blue complements my hair perfectly.” Fans will be able to purchase the collection, but will also be entitled to a Marge Simpson-style makeover from the ten pieces, which includes nail stickers ($16.50), eye shadows ($44), lipglasses ($16.50), and lashes ($18.50).
