These days as a work at home mom, I often get the option to plug away at my laptop while sitting at my desk in my pajamas. With the hassle of getting the kids dressed and ready for the day and dropping kiddos off at school, it’s nice to be able to come back home, pop a load of laundry in the wash and do my work right here, not at a corporate desk somewhere. However, I have often envied the mom showing up to pick their kids up from school looking top-notch in heels that she obviously doesn’t trip over (only I do that), and perfectly applied make-up, with the lashes I wasn’t genetically gifted with. But that’s okay, because last weekend I raided my local Wal-Mart’s make-up section because I decided it was time for a make-up overhaul, and I now have Maybelline’s Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara to help me with my lack of natural lashes.
Now Tuesday (tomorrow) is mom’s night out with my mom group and I’ll be able to apply my makeup, especially my mascara, loving my lashes! I’ve often been jealous over the length of other women’s lashes and I don’t have to be jealous anymore. Maybelline’s Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara is the world’s first ever push up brush with cup-shaped bristles that scoop, coat, and lift lashes to a 45-degree angle. It’s creamy plumping formula lets the mascara glide smoothly onto lashes for a dramatic, instant charge. It volumizes better than another other mascara I’ve owned!
I’ve included a little video here of how I apply my eye makeup, which is only a little different depending on the outfit I wear, the time of day it is, or the season. I tend to go with darker tones in the fall/winter, and lighter eye make-up in the spring/summer and some of that just depends on my clothing choice as well.
I like to do my version of a smokey eye. It doesn’t use three colors, it’s only two, mainly because I don’t feel the top part of my eyes below my eyebrows have the depth for three specific colors. I might be able to have that effect if I tweezed. But my brows are so light, I don’t tweeze. However, I’ve discovered Maybelline’s Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara to help sculpt my eyebrows. It’s the first time I’ve ever used brow mascara! Also because my eyebrows are sparse, I fill in some areas with a brow pencil and I usually choose black or very dark brown. Now my hair is naturally brown, but my eyelashes are black, so I kinda feel like they should match my eyelashes, but I’m very light with the pencil as to not over do it, I don’t want to look like a drag queen. 😉
Now usually during summer, it’s a tone very close to my natural skin color on the top portion just under the brow, then on my eyelid, is usually something I feel compliments my skin tone and eyes. So I usually choose a green, golden brown or a bronze color. Because I have dark eyebrows I usually pencil in a dark brow color, or sometimes leave it untouched if I’m in a rush. I used to match my eyeshadow to my outfit color, but found that often doesn’t go well with my skin tone. I stopped using blues because it just didn’t look right on me.
I line the bottom of my eye with a black eyeliner, but I’m careful not to actually draw a line, because it can look really unnatural. Instead, I kind of dot it right at the hair follicle so that it doesn’t crease later when my makeup starts to wear off. That’s when you tend to see that people have applied their eye liner wrong. On the top lash I do draw a line though because it will blend in with your lashes and not be as noticeable. You can be much thicker with your eyeliner on the top than you can on the bottom. Also do not apply mascara to your bottom lashes. It just creates the spider lash look and nine times out of ten, you’ll have clumping and see marks on your skin from your eyelashes when you blink.
Like I mentioned above, after you are done applying your eye shadow, eye liner and mascara, sculpt those eyebrows! You might not think you need to, but trust me sculpted brows can even improve your expressions. Some people have angry-looking brows, you kinda want to go for the intrigued, “I’m interested” look, which is brushing your eyebrows to make sure all the little hairs are going in the right direction and creating an arch right at the middle of your eye. The sculpting brow mascara helps it stay sculpted throughout the day!
And Maybelline’s Falsies Push Up Drama gives my lashes the lift I want, without having to apply false lashes!
