Makeup Brush Cleaning Techniques and Homemade Cleaner

Let’s face it, cleaning makeup brushes isn’t the most enjoyable activity to do. Because of that, often times it gets put off and we are left with dirty brushes that cause uneven makeup application and breakouts on our skin. It is so important to clean your makeup brushes! I used totally dread cleaning them, but I have learned a few tricks to making the process a little faster and more enjoyable. I want to share my top two makeup brush cleaning techniques and my top secret homemade brush cleaner!

What Eyeshadow Colors to Wear With Eye Colors

I get a lot of questions about what eyeshadow colors look best on people. There are a lot of different factors that can go into it, if we really want to get technical. Instead of diving so far into it that it scares you away from trying new colors, I want to encourage you to try other colors based on your eye color. Here are what eyeshadow colors you should wear based on your eye color. I will explain a little further in detail below the infographic. If you need this graphic for reference, pin it on your Pinterest board or print out and put it in your makeup bag!

Best Eyeshadow Colors for Your Eye Colors on www.girllovesglam.com

Before I dive into each color, I want you to remember to think about your skin tone when you are choosing eyeshadow colors as well. If you have green eyes but you have cool toned skin, you should probably stay away from the warm orange and warm brown. Just use our best judgement and if you can’t tell what tones you should use, try experimenting and see for yourself what colors are working or not working with your skin tone. Both Sephora and Ulta have great return policies if you purchase something that you don’t love!  [Read more…]

Valentine’s Date Makeup

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Know Cosmetics. All opinions are 100% mine.

Valentine’s Day is one day each year that I look forward to getting dolled up. Busy moms don’t get the opportunity to get dressed up very often, so I like to really embrace the experience when I have the opportunity. However, getting ready for a date doesn’t need to take as long as it once did when I was in high school or college. Thankfully I have discovered a few products that make doing my makeup easy and it looks a whole lot better than my makeup did in college!

Alternative Options for Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions are one of the biggest trends in makeup right now. They have been around for kind of a long time, but their popularity has really skyrocketed in the past few years. Lash extensions can look really beautiful, but they don’t always. There are many bad eyelashes out there. They can also be quite expensive and time consuming to keep up. That’s why I think it is so important to know what some of your other options are before committing to eyelash extensions!
