All my friends gave up their Caboodle in junior high.
But not me!!
I looooveee my Caboodle ( << not sponsored, just realness ). Still use it to this day. They’re the best things EVER. Reasons? 1.) they keep all my makeup super organized. 2.) they’re so cute/chic. 3.) Caboodles are fab for traveling. And 4.) I’VE SAID IT ONCE & I’LL SAY IT AGAIN: they’re GREAT for people who are overly organized.
Seriously though, they really settle down my obsessive organized side.
Plus when I carry around the black makeup case, I feel like a real deal makeup artist.
So let it be known: this tutorial was filmed during the day so these lashes definitely look dramatic. BUT imagine we’re on a dinner date in a perfectly dimly lit restaurant with a flicker of a candle on my face, while I sip a Pinot Grigio as I bat my lashes ( << goals ). Point: the dimmed, darker light would really enhance my ‘Double Up’ lashes in an unstated sexy way.
Lighting is everything ( I mean I’d love a good lighting crew to casually follow me everywhere ) & trust me, these lashes are ON POINT for nighttime. Daytime though? Not so much. Opt for a thinner lash like this during day.
BTW, not a big eyeliner fan. But if you are: do the thinnest line in the world ( like the thinnest ever ) before applying your bombshell lash.
Please let me know your thoughts on the latest video tutorials!
Like: OMG what is going on, my hands are falling off & I may die of hypothermia, beanie hat Emjoi-kinda freezing.
And let’s be real: who wants to get ALL dressed up when it’s THAT cold?
Unfortunately for me, this was my New York situation. I was on the go THE ENTIRE TIME SOOOO this meant dressier, tighter fitting outfits despite the cold weather AND extra, extra NYC calories ( but really, the food in New York is on a whole different level!!! ).
Thank Goddddd for Spanx. I’ve been wearing them for years but they really, really came in handy in NYC…so I figured: ding, ding!!! Blog post idea!!
NO LIE THOUGH, I’m playing for Team Spanx.
Especially when it’s freezing (!!!) because they give ya an extra layer WITHOUT adding an extra layer, if ya know what I mean? In fact, they very much so take off a layer.
A layer of Katz’ Deli turkey sandwiches/lox & bagels/potato pancakes with apple sauce/sour cream type of layer, if we’re being specific ( I’m always undoubtedly drawn to those damn potato pancakes ).
Anyway these pics were shot before a nighttime meeting— hence the white blouse & pleather skirt & I even ended up unbuttoning the top button to show off a little, sex kitten pop of nude. For the meeting, I actually wore the black underwear with the cami for extra, extra support. Pleather also has a tendency to scrunch up a little, so while it looks great- so important to have a smooth fabric underneath to keep everything from bunching (great trick, ladies!)
When picking out Spanx, you can’t go wrong with the nude cami because 1.) it’s nude ( a total classic- duh ), 2.) you can wear it with practically anything ( any time, any day ), & 3.) every girl should invest in one pair during the holidays ( especially because of the overload of bubbly x finger food x sugar cookies ). Adding the black undies is an added bonus too- don’t even get me started on that insanely powerful microfiber that literally SUCKS you in!
Also, for the record: thank God you can walk everywhere in New York. Because #potatopancakes.
How do you keep it tight during the holidays? Share!!
