Dressing Up for a Night Out

Let me start this Outfit of the Day by saying; I don't get out much. So when I do, it is a big deal haha! I got all dressed up to run across the lawn to my lovely neighbor Ann's house for a Girls Night get together with the great ladies of our neighborhood. I'm pretty sure I was the most overdressed one there ;) I was very proud because my winged liquid liner came out perfect! #makeupthrills

Shimmery Silver Eyes and Baby Pink Lips

I was inspired by the amazing makeup artist Lisa Eldridgeh for this look. She did a beautiful shimmery eye look on her YouTube channel and I loved it. I added a cat eye and a bright Barbie pink lip. Dave and I were going out to see Minions. It was pretty cute!

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara Review

I am so excited to do my first makeup review on my blog! I was sent the Younique3D Fiber Lash Mascara by my friend Camille Pocock. I had been intrigued by the product but at 29 dollars a pop, I was hesitant to buy it. It comes in a sleek black case with two tubes of products: the mascara/fiber sealer, and the fibers themselves.

 The instructions go as follows:
Apply a light coat of your favorite mascara. Let dry
Apply the Moodstruck Mascara
Apply the Fibers
Coat your lashes again in the Moodstruck Mascara to seal the fibers in place
Brush off any stray fibers from your face

The Product is pretty amazing. It makes my lashes noticeably longer, thicker, and more dramatic. It doesn't really clump either, which is incredible to me. The only thing I didn't like was that some of the fibers would fall onto my cheek through out the day, though it was pretty minor. I would press powder under my eye before application and then the stray fibers would just brush off with a cotton round or tissue. I am really impressed with this product. I don't think it is a necessity, but it is a great addition to your makeup stash especially if you have short, thin, or sparse lashes and are looking to pump them up. I like to use it in particular for special occasions and for going out at night! Overall, this mascara duo gets a thumbs up from me!

TIP: If you deal with mascara smudging throughout the day, before you put on mascara brush a little translucent powder onto your lashes. This soaks up any oils or moisturizers on your lashes to keep mascara from sliding off and volumizes your lashes!
