How To: White Eyeshadow

White eyeshadow is so pretty and clean, makes your eyes look bigger and makes you look more awake instantaneously.

It is also one of the infamous makeup looks that screams “MIDDLE SCHOOL” when done wrong, right up there with black eyeliner and frosty lipstick. All of which can be rocked with the right tweaks. Here are my tips to look more posh then frosh (ha ha ha.. get it?)

1) Use Primer. I don’t care what brand, use SOMETHING to prevent creasing, crumbling, and general nastiness.

2) Stick to the lashline and inner corner. Using a shimmery white shadow here is what really makes the eye-enhancing qualities of white shadow come to life.

3) Try a cream formula. For easy gliding over the lashline and preciseness, I really like pen formulas, such as this one by ELF.

4) And then go over it with a powder. This helps prevent creasing, and also gives the look staying power. Use an angled eyeliner brush or even a q-tip to really push the shadow into the lashline and/or inner corner

5) Use mascara to give your eyes definition. Since white eyeshadow is a pretty soft look, using mascara helps give your eyes subtle, soft definition. Maybe not as much as Kim K., but a healthy coating should do the trick.

Lindsay Lohan: Her Hair Through the Years

Hello friends,

I apologize for my lack of posts in the last month. It’s been crazy. I promise that I will try to do better.

I have a soft spot in my heart for Lindsay Lohan – one of the first non-Disney cartoon movies I remember watching was Parent Trap. Let’s take a look at her appearance since then.

 

so cute as the long-lost twins. all natural red hair.
her “Mean Girls” days..
looking a little older, experimenting with some strawberry blonde highlights
Platinum blonde, with a thinner face and body
Auburn hair, center part, looking a little healthier in the face.
Back to platinum, but still with a healthy-looking body and smile.
At the 2012 Golden Globes, looking extremely gaunt and washed out. She looks much older than her true age of 25 years.
