Shop the Look...for Less!

If you're anything like us, you can't stay away from Pinterest, it's true, it's addicting. But this look caught our eye and stopped us in our tracks, really, and we figured we just had to feature a shop the look for less here... for you. So that's what we'll continue to do...isn't it just lovely? Ready to get this look? Check out the easy steps and how to get it for less!

First, get all of your lovely beauty tools and products ready. This look will call for jet black eye liner, liquid and pencil, a bright blue (or any color you'd like to accent your eyes with) plus a volumizing mascara.
Prime your eye with primer or a foundation for a longer lasting hold on the eye shadow and even out any redness of discoloration on your lids. This look calls for a clean, classic appearance, with a running of black along your upper lash line. Next, apply the blue shadow on your eye lid, then a neutral shimmery shadow on your browbone to highlight. You may blend in a neutral color into the crease for a more dramatic look, but be sure to blend, blend, blend. Apply the blue shadow eye shadow color onto the bottom lash line.
On the inner tear duct, apply that shimmery, neutral shadow you used to highlight your browbone to open your eyes and really make them pop.
Curl your lashes and get the liner ready (our pick is Dior's style liner in noir black) ! Apply on the top lash line and wing out if you wish. Line the bottom lash line with the same liquid liner. Start before the corner of the eye when applying the liner, this way you won't be 'closing up' your eyes. Gently press the liner into the very edge of the eye, build up gradually rather than applying one sweeping line, or you'll end up smudging or creating a messy line. 

Now for that pop of color, dab, sweep and press the blue hue eyeshadow in the inner tear duct and line the bottom and top lash lines with this second color.

We LOVE lipstick, do you? 

Why we love lipstick is as simple as this! Lipstick suits our sense of style, we can play with the color, the texture, even the shape on a daily basis...just by going off of how we feel on any specific day. 

Why else?  It makes us feel pretty! With no makeup on and a top knot laying on our head oh-so-high, lipstick will make up your face and make you feel pretty when you're feeling your lowest, your laziest. 

Give yourself a pick me up and complete your look. Go shop some lipstick, lip glosses, lip liners, and other lip care products on sale!

Have fun shopping!

Spring hasn't sprung yet, but we're sure ready for it when it's ready for us! Which is why now is the perfect time to prepare! Now is the time to read up on the beauty trends to look forward to (and shop for) this spring!


Manicured, Well Detailed Nails
If you don't already know, nails are major...they have been the past year or so, and a 'regular' mani just won't cut it anymore. That's why we are proud to carry OPI's Nail Lacquer nail apps, an easy (and super affordable) way to have a trendy nail that is long lasting and do we have to say it again, super trendy! GET THE LOOK: Shop OPI Nail apps

Neutral Eyes
Go easy on the eyes, it's soon to be summer time! A nude, natural eye is key, especially if you want to go with a bright matte lip. Choose either bold eye or bold lip, but never choose both! If you choose to go neutral with your eyes, which we suggest you do, you'll love Clarin's single eye colours! GET THE LOOK: Shop for Clarin's eye shadow

Matte Lips
This spring, drop the gloss and go for a matte textured lip look. Think velvety smooth and definitely not dry. First, use a lip exfoliant to prevent any peeling or chapped lips and make sure to keep that pucker moisturized for a long lasting, matte look. Get the Look: KISS ME Exfoliating Lip Scrub by Philosophy & we love Kevyn Aucoin's Matte Lip Color in Timeless.

Dewy Skin
Moisturized, healthy skin is 'so in' this spring, but really, when is it not? Get a hydrated, bright look with Clarin's Bright Plus hydrating lotions with SPF 20. This stuff is beauty in a bottle, once you apply this onto your skin, you will see instant results and instant luminosity.  GET THE LOOK: Clarin's Hydrating Skincare

Summer Chic Fragrance
Last but not least, we could never forget to complete the look with a fragrance. New, limited summer edition Alien Aqua Chic by Thierry Mugler may just be the perfect spring scent, with notes including ginger, lemon verbena, freesia, wood, and amber. GET THE LOOK: Alien Aqua Chic
