FallMakeUp

1. The Balm’s “Balm Shelter” tinted moisturizer is great for touching up foundation in the afternoon or for light coverage on days you’re rushing out the door. Oh, and it has SPF in it, score!

2. Max clear lip gloss gives your smooch instant shine and moisture which is perfect when you’re going for the au natural, understated look.

3. If you want your lips to be the perfect pop of pink, look no further than The Balm Girls Ima Good Kisser. This lipstick is ultra conditioning and has a little shimmer to keep things interesting.

4. If you need some highlighting on the go, swipe some K’aoir Gold Dust Eye Shadow on your lids with a pinky or a q-tip for some shine and definition.

5. Every fall makeup bag needs some liquid liner. NYX The Curve Eye Liner is a compact liquid liner that will give you a sultry kitten eye in an instant!

6. Talk about a versatile product… NYX Studio Finishing Powder does so many things. Make your lipsticks matte with a dash of this powder on top of your favorite lipstick or lock in your tinted moisturizer with a sweep of this powder on your nose and chin to get rid of shine.

BeautyNCLA Nail Wrap Tutorial

HotSummerBanner

What better way to enjoy your summer stay-cation, than with a cool printed mani! If you’ve never used nail wraps before, just follow this easy nail wrap tutorial, and you’ll be relaxing poolside before you know it!

NCLA nail wraps are so easy , because not only do they come with plenty of wraps (in case you mess up) but they also include a full size nail file, and complete instructions. The only thing else you need is some clear nail polish!

nail wrap tutorial

1.Paint your nails with clear nail polish and let it dry completely.

2. Choose the right size nail wrap for one nail at a time and apply. (I found I needed to step up one size for most of my nails, and you can sort of stretch the width of each nail wrap before applying, if you need to.) Start at the cuticle and smooth over your nail, working out any bubbles. Use the nail file to file off the excess tip, using gentle downward motions.

3. Finish with one or two more coats of clear polish. Let it dry, and you’re done!
