Perfecting Your Eyes: Tools $10 And Under

Sally Hansen Beauty Tools are available in drugstores nationwide and are also professional grade but will cost you less than $10! Here’s a look at what’s out there and some brow and lash tips courtesy of Carmindy, co-creator of Sally Hansen Natural Beauty and author of “Crazy Busy Beautiful”:

The Now Brow Perfect Arch Brow Kit: Enjoy tweezer-free brow shaping from this innovative set. Featuring one brow scissor and one brow shaper, the perfect brow set allows you to refine, define, arch, and accent. ($9.49)
Carmindy says: “If your brows grow straight down, use a curved pair of cuticle scissors and snip them from underneath into perfect shape.”

Mighty Mini Tini Tweeze Slant Tip: These travel size slant tip tweezers are perfect for working in-between or above the brows. The platform design inside the tips means even more hair-grabbing capability. ($5.49)
Carmindy says: “To ease your tweezing, pull the skin taut, grab the hairs at the base as close to the skin as you can get, and gently pull”

Sexy Curls Precision Eyelash Curler: Crimp, curl, widen and wink with the deluxe lash curler. Engineered to not touch the face and easier handling and crimping comfort. ($6.49)
Carmindy says: ”For extra curling oomph, lightly run a warm hair dryer for about thirty seconds before crimping your lashes. Touch it with a clean finger before proceeding. You want it warm, not scalding. Protect that delicate skin!”

A Priceless Necklace. Do you have one?

Every mom needs a priceless piece of jewelry in their house…

I just recently was given one of those one-of-a-kind priceless pieces by Henry.

I can guarantee this… I will own this forever and ever and ever…

Get Scarlett Johansson’s Look From Dolce&Gabbana Show

Face of Dolce&Gabbana Make Up Scarlett Johansson looked effortlessly striking at the SS12 Dolce&Gabbana runway show in Milan. With a look created by Pat McGrath using Dolce&Gabbana Make Up, Scarlett brought femininity and sophistication to the front row.

To begin Pat used Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation mixing two shades, Bisque and Beige, to perfectly match her skin tone and achieve a really natural and radiant finish. Pat applied this using the Foundation Brush to create a well blended and flawless complexion. To provide added luminosity Pat used a little of Perfect Finish Concealer under the eyes and around the nose.

On the apples of Scarlett’s cheeks Pat used a light sweeping of the Blush in Rosebud, and on Scarlett’s cheekbones a hint of the Illuminator in Eva created definition and radiance.

For the eyes Pat used the EyeshadowQuad in Femme Fatale, a colour palette including slightly shimmery neutral tones; she began using the palest shade as a base for the eyes, and then built on this using the two mid tones. Finally Pat applied the darkest shade right in the sockets of Scarlett’s eyes to create subtle definition. A touch of the Eyeliner Black and Coffee on the top of the eye lids created added depth to the look.

Finally on the lips Pat used the new Passion Duo lipsticks mixing twoshades; Infatuation and Incognito to create a full and sensuallip. On Scarlett’s nails the Nail Lacquer in Pink was used to finish the overall look.
