Best of Summer Beauty: Eyes and Nails
I love testing beauty products. It is my favorite part of this job! While I am admittedly the world’s pickiest eater, I’m quite the opposite with beauty products--I’ll try anything once! Hair products, brightening moisturizers, makeup; luxurious creams, gels, oils, über-userful powders: gimme!
This summer, the beauty focus is feminine with a touch of funkiness. It is all about eyes and nails! Let’s just jump right in.
Lashes: I am amazed by the magical eyes I’m seeing all around me! Whether accomplished by means of false lashes, extensions, treatments, or by incredible genetic makeup (makeup!), gorgeous eyelashes are taking the world by storm. I’ve tried several lash serums-slash-conditioners and can personally vouch for RapidLash. Fantastic stuff! (tip: I’ve also used it to help my sad skinny eyebrows, yay!) The She She Team can also speak for RevitaLash’s results. I made the mistake of using it on my lower lashes, which were already long, and, well, we’re sorting that one out. Would it be weird of me to trim them?
Mascara: A fab set of lashes deserves to be dressed up. It’s worthwhile to invest in a great mascara or two. I use more than one mascara myself. I’ve tried dozens, and always find myself falling back on my trusty drugstore L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black for my upper lashes. For my lower lashes, on the other hand, I prefer Buxom Lash. The defined brush separate my lashes and the mascara goes on smooth and clump-free.
Shadow: We She She Girls are huge fans of experimenting with eye shadow. I’m particularly partial to Tarte and Too Faced shadows. They’re lightweight and smooth, and many come with a touch of shimmer--which I happen to prefer on most occasions. I have Tarte’s Femme Naturale Palette and use it almost every day (LOVE the double-ended brush that comes in this palette!).This summer, try navy on for size. It can help to counteract redness and doesn’t emphasize wrinkles the way black/grey shadows can.
If you’re on Pinterest, you’ve seen the millions of nail pins floating about! Ombre, sparkle, sprinkles, magnetic, geometric; I just can’t get enough.
Ombré: DVF’s got it, and you know what? Ombré is not as hard to accomplish as it looks. Purchase a gradient set or use what you have on-hand for a totally custom look. You can use a makeup wedge as a stamp to build an ombré look on each individual nail or simply paint each nail a slightly different hue for a full-hand fading ombré finish. Either way, you’ll be rocking this trend! Pair your freshly manicured nails with an ombré scarf or ombré necklace and you’ll carry this lovely trend right into fall.
Well, I’m off to catch up on some Olympics! Oh, how I wish I were in London to see this in person. If She She Me keeps up on her dreams of competing for gold at the archery fields, who knows? Maybe I’ll catch a glimpse of dreams coming true in Rio de Janeiro! Ah, She She--the girl knows how to keep things fresh. Go USA!
