Disclosure: This product was sent to me. All opinions are my own.
I rock with Black Radiance(and their sister company Wet N Wild) when it comes to eyeshadows. They’re pigmented and won’t hurt your pockets. So if you’re looking for something good for the low-low then this is it.
With two shimmers and a matte shadow you can wear one for a casual wash of color or create a dramatic look with all three.
April and May bring with it photos of teenage girls beaming from ear to ear or smizing for their lives in prom pictures. Some go for a natural look while others are highlighted and contoured to the gawds. With those photos comes praise and criticism via social media. Debate about the age-appropriateness of the makeup ensues so that got me thinking, how young is too young for makeup?
I started wearing make-up in 6th or 7th grade. I’m not exactly sure why. Part of me thinks it was to cover up chicken pox scars and part of me thinks it was just a teenage whim. I do remember there was zero push back from my dad. He bought it without blinking. He even took my Avon orders to his co-worker at the time. 12 or 13 wasn’t too young for makeup to him, however, I know everyone doesn’t think that way.
Do certain products have an age requirement? Does the occasion factor into your decision? How young is too young for makeup to you?
So let’s dead this. You need sunscreen everyday. EVERYDAY. Indoors, outdoors, while working in an office, at a counter, handing out flyers, whatever. Put it on. Reapply as needed and be active in preventing skin cancer and excessive aging of your skin.
You know how it goes. You’re bored and maybe you have a few bucks burning a hole in your pocket so you say “I’ll buy that lip product I saw so and so talking about.” You get lucky and there it is, beauty at a bargain in your drugstore. So you go home eager to test it out only to find out it wasn’t what you wanted or hoped for. This was me with Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color.
Contouring is a HUGE deal. Some people swear by it(You’ve seen Instagram) while others aren’t too keen on it. It’s the new thing and an old trick all at the same time. It doesn’t really matter where you fall on it to me, I’m just here to give another option that I haven’t seen getting much love since all these contouring palettes have hit the market in the last year or so.
Considering many of the palettes are $40+ or some of the darker palettes have limited availability(see: only available on company websites) compared their palettes with lighter shades I think Make Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Cream palette is worth checking out. If you’re more partial to cream than powder then this one is right up your alley. It’s smaller than many of these contouring palettes so it will travel easily and you have a color correcting shade. It may not be billed as a “contouring palette” but let’s be honest, many of these palettes are eyeshadow/concealer-like products repackaged to cash in on the craze anyway.

Today’s question is pretty simple. Do you curl your lashes? I asked this question on Twitter and got a few answers without an overwhelming majority either way. Now I’m asking you. Does mascara get the job done when it comes to your lashes or do you reach for the eyelash curler to get maximum oomph?
