How to Make Colorful Liner Wearable!

If you're like me, somewhere in your makeup collection, you're probably hoarding a shameful stash of gorgeous, colorful eye liners that don't get much love.

The months pass...
Your gorgeous rainbow of little liquid pretties in the drawer begin to expire. aaaaand you don't have the heart to throw them out because they've only been touched once. I feel ya. I have one of those stashes too.

So one day a couple weeks back I found a really easy and flattering way to incorporate colorful liner into your everyday makeup routine when you want to have a little fun!
Don't be afraid to use color where eye liner is concerned! It can be done in a way that looks grown-up and flattering.


Highlighting 101

There are SOOOO many different facial highlighting products out there. Cream, liquid, primers, powders... it can get confusing. How to use them can seem even trickier.

...because with highlighting products, there is a fine line between glowy and disco ball.

We want to make sure "disco ball" never happens. Unless, of course, it's intentional.


Giveaway Winners! ...and a "Thank You"

Today is the day! Thank you to all who participated in my latest giveaway. Most of all, thank you to all of you who take the time to watch my videos, read my blog, and just for supporting what I do in general!
I truly started YouTube to share my love of makeup and to have sort of my own little super girly outlet to talk about shopping, makeup, and beauty. Over the past 3 years, my love of doing this and my reasons for doing it have stayed the same. I've just picked up a lot of new friends along the way.
For those reasons, doing giveaways like this is so fun for me. I love being able to give back to you all. In the beginning, it was little giveaways here and there, but since this channel has grown so much, I'm so thankful that Sigma provided prizes to support a giveaway of this size. I promise, there will be many more fun and different giveaways in the future! :)
Thanks for all the interaction, the support, and for making this so much fun. I hope we can continue to enjoy this little online beauty world together for a very long time!

FIRST PEEK! NEW Sigma Eye Shadow Palettes

I'm so excited to give my readers a first peek at the three new palettes from Sigma.

I have to start by saying that I'm very picky about eye shadows. But you all probably already knew that...

The packaging, color selections, and formulas are great. They're also priced incredibly well. Only $35 for 8 shades and a dual-sided brush. Not your typical brush that comes inside a palette that you immediately throw out because they're cheaply made, but one that is actually the same quality as the ones you'd buy separately.

**These will be available on June 24th at SigmaBeauty.com**
My readers get an even better deal by clicking here and using my Sigma discount code, "TIFFANY2011" to save an extra 10% off anything on the site until June 30th :)

I'm also giving away 13- $100 gift cards to SigmaBeauty.com! All the details are in my giveaway video :)
If you win my giveaway that is currently running, you could use your gift card to get all 3 palettes if you wanted! Pretty awesome.

On to the swatches...

Bare Palette

Dare Palette

Flare Palette

I'm really impressed with the formulas of these. I've been wearing them a lot over the past few weeks and I've been so excited about sharing them with you all. I'm definitely planning on doing tutorials with these in the future so be on the look out for those!

Here is a closer look at the brush that comes with the Bare palette. The brushes that come with each type of palette are totally different! I love that.

MAC Minis! "Sized to Go" Collection

Travel-sized items make me extremely happy...

I often find myself wandering down the cute little travel-sized products aisle of whatever store I happen to be frequenting. Not always right before a trip, but just because travel-sized anything looks so darn cute.

Combine my excitement of travel-sized items with one of my favorite cosmetics brand and you have something pretty special...
...who thought a 1 oz. Fix+ could be so cute?
(l-r) Cleanse-Off Oil Tranquil, Green Gel Cleanser, Fix+, Strobe Cream, Pro Eye Makeup Remover

and mini MAC Wipes? Genius.

My obsessions from this line? Fix+, Cleanse Off Oil/Tranquil, and the Demi-Wipes.

These will FOR SURE be traveling with me to LA at the end of the month. ...and looking cute on my counter and making me smile with their precious mini size until then.

Also available from the line- Cleanse Off Oil, Oil Control Lotion, and Studio Moisture Cream

These are a part of the permanent line also. Which is awesome. No need to hoard, guys.
