So I'm proud to say I'm now an admirer of MAC's Satin Taupe eyeshadow! This is big - I've always wanted to like this shade because I thought it looked gorgeous on other people! But, it always seemed to come across a bit muddy against my own fair skin tone. To lighten it up and sheer it out I've started applying it with a fluffy blending brush (any brush will do but I like Sigma's E40 brush) all over my lid and it creates a perfect, neutral smokey eye! I like it because it's still wearable for daytime but easily transitions to night with the help of a little black eyeliner. The look featured in the video below has been my fall go-to, so I thought I'd share it with you all :)

Dramatic Lashes - No Falsies!! Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara Review

I've recently discovered a mascara that I've completely fallen in love with; the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara! Anytime I find a product that impresses me this much my first thought is to obviously share it with all of you!

Not only does this mascara perform better than any other that I've tried, it's also formulated with ingredients that are good for your lashes - can't ask for more than that! Check out the video below for more details on why I LOVE this product and a little trick that I've been doing when I apply it. I purchased my tube for $19 and although I do consider that a splurge purchase, in my opinion it was worth the money and I'll definitely be repurchasing Lights, Camera, Lashes in the future.

More info on this product can be found on the Sephora website :)
