Everyday Starlet

Month: September 2016

Monthly Favorites: Eye Creams, Highlighters, Brows & More!

I fully intended to do a round up of my monthly favorites every month this year.  Then life happened and I just didn’t get to it.  So I am finally sharing some of my favorite skin care, makeup, and life events that happened in the past few months….

Here are this months highlights….

Inspired by my trip to NYC for StyleCodeLive and GenBeauty, I’m trying a new uploading schedule on YouTube… 5 days a week!  It freaks me out even typing it.  But so far it’s been keeping me in a rhythm and I’m hoping that it will help me share even more of my beauty advice and reviews with my Starlets.

I have a new favorite eye cream* that, I swear, takes 10 years off my face.  I also mentioned it in my How To Get Rid of Dark Circles post.

Dermarche Labs FullFill Best Eye Cream Wrinkle Filler

I found the ultimate waterline liner.  It’s expensive, but I tested several, and you can see some affordable options in my review.  

I got married (more posts about that coming soon!) and went on my Honeymoon, which was amazing!  I’m thinking about doing a wedding Q&A so if you have any wedding questions leave them in the comments.

Quebec City Parliament Fountain

My Ride or Die Makeup Tag has been very popular this month and some of my picks for that video are in my favorites this month, including high end brows and drugstore brows, liquid bronzer, and cream and powder highlighters.

Brow Wiz Dupes From The Drugstore

It seems like Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz is one of those game changing makeup products that changed the way we do brows.  I know I hardly ever even did anything to my brows before the Wiz came into my life.  It also seems like Brow Wiz dupes from the drugstore are the most sought after makeup item…..

So I tested two drugstore brow pencils, one from Maybelline and one from L’oreal, to see if they can live up to the legendary Brow Wiz.  Here’s what I discovered…

The Best & Worst Eye Liner Pencils

I have never had more requests for a post than I did after last week’s waterline liner review.  It seems that, like me, everyone is struggling to find the perfect eye liner as well.  So here it is, by popular demand… the best & worst eye liner pencils….

Pinning is Glamorous!

The Best & Worst Eye Liner Pencils

I have a serious struggle with eye liner pencils.  I was actually thrilled when liquid liners became popular so I could stop searching for the perfect pencil.  Alas, pencil liners are gaining popularity again, so I went on a quest to find the prefect one that doesn’t give me the dreaded “lid liner mark”.  We all know it.  It’s when your liner leaves a mark on your lid and you don’t even know it’s there until you casually pass by your reflection.  I get that all the time.  So I wanted to, once and for all, find a pencil that wouldn’t do that.  So here is my journey…

Spoiler Alert: My favorite and least favorite are from the same brand… and I can’t find my favorite online anywhere, so I think it has been discontinued and replaced by my least favorite.  Isn’t that always the way.

I kept the rest of the look simple with a pastel shadow pencil and lip perfecting gloss so that my skin stole the show.  I actually went to the supermarket after I did this look and kept sneaking a peek at myself in my reflection and admiring how glowing my skin looked.  Here’s how I got the look…..

Ipsy GenBeauty 2016 & StyleCodeLive

The past month has been a whirlwind.  I got married, went on my Honeymoon, and I hadn’t even unpacked when I found out I was a StyleCodeLive #SCLTalentSearch finalist.  They brought me to NYC for the weekend to appear on StyleCodeLive, took us to the Ipsy VIP Party, and then brought us to GenBeauty 2016.  I vlogged the experience and I wanted to share my crazy weekend with you, and give my review of GenBeauty and tips for finding out if it’s a convention you should consider attending….

Mason Pearson Brush Dupe? Sonia Kashuk Hair Brush Review

Makeup takes a lot of my attention on Everyday Starlet, and rightfully so.  It’s one of my biggest passions.  However, my background is in Cosmetology, and I’ve studied hair care, skin care, and nails just as much as makeup.  So I want to incorporate more beauty videos and posts that cover other areas of the beauty world than just makeup.  I’m starting with a possible Mason Pearson brush dupe…

Mason Pearson Brush Dupe? Sonia Kashuk Hair Brush Review

The Mason Pearson brush is a very expensive hair brush that has a bit of a cult following.  When I heard that Target had a Sonia Kashuk Hair Brush that was supposed to be a dupe for a fraction of the price, I had to give it a try.  Here’s what I discovered….

The Best Waterline Eye Liner for Brighter Eyes

I love the look of big bright eyes.  Somedays that comes naturally, and others not so much.  Yesterday I showed you how to get rid of dark circles.  Today I’m focused on the best waterline eye liner for brighter eyes…

The Best Waterline Eye Liner for Brighter Eyes

Lining the lower waterline of the eye is widely (pun intended) know for making your eyes looks bigger and brighter.  The problem is, finding one that will last all day and look natural.  I tried my whole collection of liners in whites, nudes, and champagnes.  I tried high end and drugstore, as well as shimmers and mattes.  I tried a different one each day, and documented my journey to finding the perfect waterline liner.  Here’s what I discovered….

When treating any type of skin issue, your makeup is only as effective as the skin care products you use under it.  So I always start with great eye creams.  I use three, which is more then necessary but it’s been working for me.  Then I use color correctors.. two when i really want to look #Flawless… and then concealer and brightener.  Here’s the step by step process….
