2014 has started off with a bang for me! I’ve definitely made a few well meaning resolutions, and one of them was to shake up my beauty look and routine in the new year. So far I’ve gotten a whole new hair cut and I’ve gone ginger! But my locks aren’t the only thing I’ve given a refreshing new look to – I recently swung by Walgreens to stock up on a few L’Oreal products that I’ve been dying to try, and walked away with everything I need for a bright and easy makeup tutorial!
I tend to work primarily with earthy tones when it comes to my eyeshadow. They’re certainly a safe option, however if you’re looking to shake things up without feeling out of your element this year, I definitely recommend that you go for a fun quad or palette like the L’Oreal’s Color Riche Eye Shadow palette in 313 Neon Skirt. Definitely a far cry from my taupe and brown, I love the minty green/blue color – which look’s lovely with the gold and purple. It reminds me of spring and Mardi Gras. Palettes are a safe way to try a new look, they are already color-matched and completely fool-proof. Here’s the look:
I have been on the hunt for L’Oreal’s newest mascara – Voluminous® Butterfly Mascara, and I predict this one to be a must-have beauty item this year. There was only one left at my Walgreens!
This mascara is insane and has quickly replaced my higher end (and more expensive) mascara that I’ve been using in my makeup routine. The wand is flexible but still affords a good amount of control. The brushes really separate and coat lashes extremely well – and the formula is smooth so no feathering or flaking. If you’re in the market for an incredible mascara that lengthens, volumizes, and defines – then this is what you’re looking for!
