Brows made simple: CoverGirl Bombshell Pow-der Brow + Liner by LashBlast

script type="text/javascript">

TitleIf there was one beauty trend that was a memorable one in 2014, it was all about the power brow. Two words: Cara Delevingne.

I feel like tons of brands have come out with/are coming out with brow products designed to make filling them in simple. Benefit released Gimme Brow last year, which is a tiny little wand that you brush on your brows filling them in, making it pretty much food proof. Well, the brow trend is continuing into 2015 with many more brands releasing products that make those oh-so-important strips of hair above your eyes more polished.

Being released in January 2015, CoverGirl Bombshell Pow-der Brow + Liner by LashBlast is a velvety loose powder in liner form that you sweep on your brows, instantly filling them in.  CoverGirl seems to be killing it with the new product releases, this one especially included. Usually I use a brown powder with an angled liner brush, but this thing totally combines the two products in one. Lightly dab the applicator across your brows and they are instantly filled in. By using this product, it’s less harsh than a gel or powder, making them appear more natural.

As you can guess by the name, it does have a dual power, as you can also use it as an eyeliner. I want to keep it strictly for brows, but I have been into brown liner lately anyways, as its not as harsh as a black with my blue eyes. It’s available in four shades: Blonde, Medium Brown, Dark Brown and Black. Remember, rule of thumb is that you go a shade lighter than your brow colour. You want to fill in the sparse sections, creating more a shadow effect as opposed to actually making them darker.

Overall, I am loving this product. The applicator makes this so easy to use and it really does fill in my brows with ease. I do have to admit that it did take some trial and error, but for a drugstore product, this one is a must (and this coming from a girl who loves Benefit Gimme Brow). The only downfall is that because it’s a loose powder in the pot, once you start sweeping the product, there does tend to be some fallout, so fill in your brows before applying your foundation.

Party pizazz

Title

Christmas party season is in full force. Although I am a firm believer in the fact that you can wear sequins year round, I feel like once it starts to feel like the holidays, a little shimmer in your life can do some good. Whether it’s a work Christmas party, a family one, or dinner spent with friends, this is a great time to dress up and sparkle and shine.

For this look, I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette from the Bon Voyage holidays 2014 set.  I chose to do a glittery smoky eye. No liner, big lashes, and a nude lip.  Finish it off with a touch of Make Up For Ever Holodiam Powder, and this one will have people catching your eye even across the room.

final 1

steps

1. As always, lay down your primers and start with your eyes first. Fill in your brows, then with a matte white, pop this along your brow bone, acting as your highlight. I used Make Up For Ever #00 Matte White from the Technicolor palette.

2. With Merci You Later and a fluffy crease brush, work this into your crease, acting as a transition shade.

3. Using an eyeshadow brush, apply C’est La Vie all over your lids.

4. With your crease brush, work Play Nice into your crease, then blend.

5. Skip the liner and just pop on some falsies instead. I used Kiss Look Natural lashes in Flirty.

6. With Make Up For Ever Holodiam Powder in #303, a shimmery white, lightly apply this to your lids to add some shine.  Then, apply Play Nice along your lower lash line, finishing off your bottom lashes with a coat of mascara.

Final 2

Sport this look with an LBD, or if you really want to be eye-catching this season, rock a sequin crop top, like I did (mine is from H&M).

Happy holidays!
