Favorite Things for a Dramatic Eye

TalkyTalkTuesdayI had a photo shoot today for Meridian Momtourage. Their unveiling a new site soon so they wanted us all to look purty for the new design. It occurred to me as I did my eye makeup that I’m not too shabby in the makeup department. I remember when I sold cosmetics that a lot of women are intimidated by doing their eye makeup. I think some of the trick is in using the right products. Watch the video for some of my favorites and then share yours in the comments below.

    These products are new to me. so often make up advice is so common knowledge. you actually taught me a couple things, and I am most grateful.
    Can you tell me, does the flower mascara give that black haze under your lower lash line two hours later? I’ve never found a mascara that didn’t. and does the pixie cream pencil stay put? these are important questions.

      No black haze and the pixi pencil stays put up top all day but underneath can get a little smudgy but only many hours after I’ve put it on which means I’m abusing it.;)
