St. Patrick's Day makeup: Green & Gold Eyes

green and gold makeup

St. Patrick's day is tomorrow and you're going to see green all over the place. You might even participate. While you can dress yourself from head-to-toe in green, don't forget to add a little green to your makeup. Whether you choose to go with full-on green eyeshadow or just add a little hint of green, the possibilities are endless.

Today I'll show you a look that did that had green (a little more like teal) as a major focus, but was not the main colour on my eyelids.

Conditioning Before Shampoo: You've been washing your hair wrong

reverse washing, condition before shampoo

By now, you're probably a pro at washing your hair. After all, you've been doing it without any help for probably 15+ years.

Wet hair, shampoo, rinse, condition, let it sit while you do other things, rinse, and maybe do it again or call it done. Pretty straightforward. Hard to mess up. But what if someone told you that you've been doing it wrong all this time?

Mani Monday: Nude Lace

Over the weekend I attended a Jeans & Jewels gala hosted by the Arthritis Society to raise awareness of Arthritis. Dress code called for jeans and a little bling on top.

Jeans are never an issue with me, neither are blingy earrings or necklace. I wanted a little more, and since I don't own any finger bling, I decided to incorporate rhinestones into my nail art.

essence Spring/Summer 2016 Release

new essence Spring/Summer 2016 Release

 I love Spring & Summer. Longer days, the warm sun on your skin, driving with the windows down, music blaring, and of course, the new makeup releases/collections.

One brand that I'm always excited about is essensce. Whether they're coming out with an entirely new product in their line or adding additional colours, they always deliver. And you can't beat the price. Only recently has their max price gone from $4.99 to $9.99, but it's for box set items.
