The Best Mascara Tip

IMG_3006

I rely heavily on friends and beauty boxes for all my makeup tips. I’m such a newb.

I like: Dior Mascara Base travel size and Clinique Mascara Primer

Tip: one friend with exceptional eyelashes shared: always use eyelash primer. This allows for long-lasting, fuller lashes. My favorite part though: you know when you get black mascara all over your eyelid? When you apply this first, you can hit your skin with it and be as messy as you want, it won’t show up. Your final black mascara layer will only need a few coats.

The best mascara I have ever used. Hands down. Makes my Asian lashes have length & volume unlike anything else I’ve used. It’s in between regular & waterproof mascara. Lasts as long as waterproof mascara, but washes off way easier.

What I Really Want To Wear To Holiday Parties

I have always been attracted to weird pieces of clothing. In seventh grade, year 1999, I purchased a bright orange, polyester, long sleeved shirt. It read “MILLENNIUM” in 3D, pop-out letters. I wore it for years.

If my sweet husband were blind, and my bank account had about 10 extra zero’s on the end of it, this would be my Christmas party attire:

Delpozo

Would this number be appropriate for my church Christmas party? It’s not too much, is it? Good.

I just want to wear a coat. A very large, oversized, shiny coat.
