    1. Thanks! I don't curl them at all, it's the mascara I swear! Try tape with gel or precise liquid pens from dolly wink, peripera or clio!

  6. Ahhh, lots of makeup and outfit goodness :) Love the blush in the last pic, and the simple brown/gold eye. Once again, you've inspired me to use theBalm highlighter as eyeshadow - I've just never gotten around to it :p Your dinner outfit is really cute as well, can't go wrong with all black ;)

    1. I'm a blush person! I could go out with waaay too much on and still find it just right. The highlighter is amazing, I've used it daily in the last few months for my brow highlight, inner corner sometimes and even all over the lid!
