NYC Big Bold Look

Step 1: Apply a primer to help your eye-shadow to last. 
Then apply a light colour over entire lid as a base colour. 

Step 2: Apply a darker brown colour in the crease for some dimension, 

Step 3: Add some dark eye-liner to the top(i did a winged eye!)
*This liquid eye-liner has a felt tip and makes for an easy application

Step 4: Apply some mascara to make your eyelashes POP!
*This mascara gives you lots of volume without clumps. You also can bulid very 
nicely with this mascara 1, 2 or 3 coats.. depending on the look you're going for!

& the look is complete!!

I hope you enjoyed this easy, everyday, neutral look that i like to do.

Review: Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure

In my Influester Maple Vox Box I received these nails to try out. I have long nails so I've never worn fake nails, but I decided if I were to use these I'd wear them on a couple nails or as a statement nail.

I only filed down my thumbnail:

As you can see with my thumbnail filed down all the way, the fake nail is too short:

It was also slighty too small to cover my nail:

I really liked the print of the nails(I love leopard print!) But unfortunately these nails did not work for me at all, they were too small and short. If you have long nails, these will not be a good fit for you. I'm not sure what nail lengths they have available, my pack was the 'short length'. So if these nails interest you, make sure to keep this in mind: check to see the nail length written on the front of the package to see what will be best for you.

If I want to change up my nails with a pattern I'd prefer to try nail strips, because I wouldn't have to cut my nails down all the way to use them & I'd have more versatility.

I hope this review was helpful :)
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
