Halt And Catch Fire: The Best Show You Haven’t Watched

 

Halt and Catch Fire is a show that no one knows. It seems to have come and gone as easily as the wisp of wind that caught the White Walker’s hair as Arya runs by in The Battle Of Winterfell.  But it’s also a show that is far greater than it seems. In fact, I guarantee you that it’s the best show you have never seen, and you should absolutely stop and watch it tonight. Here’s why…

February 2018 Younique Kudos Be Loved Bundle

After seeing countless gorgeous selfies with women of all ages, and eye colors rocking the Be Loved Bundle from Younique, I could not WAIT to get my hands on the new eyeshadows. It includes an exclusive pressed shadow palette and crease brush. Best of all, it comes with your choice of any lip bonbon. And if you suffer from  dry or chapped lips, lip bonbons are a MUST. 

Be Loved Bundle

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again — using proper eyeshadow tools can make or break your eyeshadow look. And that’s one of the reasons that I am so pumped about the Be Loved Bundle, because it comes with an essential tool – the crease brush.  This brush helps your colors be precise and deep to create smokey eyes, sparkly, or really any look you need!

Be Loved Bundle

I’ve seen this palette used on ladies with all different types of eye colors and ages, and each look has been just as brilliantly lovely. I compliment the look by filling in my lips with Plush Lip Liner and top it off with the Raspberry Cheesecake Lip Bonbon. Finally, the last step is my all time favorite item — Epic Mascara!

To see how I achieve this eyeshadow look, watch the video tutorial below.

Cover Up Dark Circles | Skin Perfecting Concealer

Ever wonder how to cover up dark circles or conceal under eye circles? I’ve been there friend. I’m pretty sure I haven’t sleep well in about five years – thanks to pregnancy or being a mom of two littles. Over time I’ve learned a few  tricks to cover dark circles, and I can’t wait to share them with you!

APPLICATION METHOD:

Tip 1: Find an eye serum that works best for your eyes.

Tip 2: Hydrate your skin, especially under your eyes. This skin is thinner than most areas and needs to be well cared for. I like to use the Time Correcting Night Cream at night and Hydrating Day Cream during the Day.

Tip 3: Use a quality concealer, preferably in a shade one to two shades lighter than your skin tone. This will help brighten under your eyes. Use this in a triangle shape under your eyes, rather than a half moon. You can see the shape below in the photo. Concealer Tip #MinuteWithMary
Tip 4: Use a damp blending bud (I linked my favorite one!), either dampened with water, or even use setting spray for extra hold. I prefer to use a damp blending bud topped off with a touch of setting spray. This helps the makeup not settle into fine lines.

Tip 5: To help diffuse the look of physical bags, apply a generous amount of translucent setting powder onto the areas that you put concealer. This process is called “baking” or “cooking.” This allows the heat from your face to set your concealer and foundation. After 5 minutes or so, you can dust off the extra powder with a brush. As a result, you will be left with a creaseless, flawless finish.
(I will be doing a tutorial soon just on the baking technique.)

Tip 6: Distract with color and structure elsewhere. Pump up your blush a tad, being sure to avoid your under eye area. Make sure your eyebrows are clean and defined. Think about adding a bit of color to your lips as well!
conceal under eye bagsFinally, it may not always be the easiest thing to cover up dark circles under your eyes. Sometimes you may have them because of genetics, or for medical reasons. What I do recommend is making sure you have plenty of water intake, try to get more sleep in addition to always wear sunscreen on your face.

Doing these three things will not only help your under eye dark circles, but your health overall! Talk about a win win!

What do YOU do to cover up dark circles?
