A Tartan Smokey Eye

Lately I've been wearing dark smokey eyes, so I decided to do a tutorial on it. I also just picked the MAC A Tartan Tale: 6 Beauties Play it Cool palette at a CCS in Washington recently and I wanted to use it. I am not a huge MAC Christmas collection fan, but I am not sure how I missed this palette, it has beautiful colours, not to mention a lot of purple hued colours. I also showed a week 12 Latisse update photo.

Latisse and Wet n Wild Tutorial

I finally got around to another makeup tutorial for everyone. I feel badly because I haven't been doing too many tutorials lately. I have been uninspired because I haven't been wearing makeup very often because of school. I mostly wear black smokey looks lately. This look was inspired by the Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in Spoiled Brat. I am impressed by the colour pay off of this Wet n Wild palette, as usual, and the colours, which are so me! :D

The second item I want to talk about is Latisse. Latisse was developed from the glaucoma eye drop Lumigan. Users of Lumigan noticed that their eyelashes grew in longer and thicker while they used the eye drops. Latisse is essentially the same drop, however, it is brushed along the lash line instead of dropped in the eye. Latisse increases lash growth time allowing them to grow longer and thicker, but it will not grow more lashes. I have had noticeable success with Latisse after 7 months and I will continue to pose photos of the progress. :)
