Looking for a great eye look that makes them pop, giving you eyes that kill? Well thanks to these new Giorgio Armani eye tints, and I’ve created just that. I recently tested out these new Giorgio Armani eye tints, which is the newest and innovative formula that transforms from liquid to solid. It’s a long-lasting, tinted formula with the comfort and smoothness of a cream for intense, vibrant eye looks.
I found that applying it directly to your lid, and blending out with my fingers work best. It was fast, easy, and simple. With these shades I was able to create a daytime Smokey eye, creating a subtle yet standout eye look. The color when blended out does differ from what is in the package and a little goes a long ways. I only need to apply a small amount to achieve the desired coverage I wanted. My favorite color is the shimmer color. I can apply this color alone for a casual, but girly look, perfect for everyday.
As a bonus, I was also given the Eccentrico Eyes To Kill Mascara, a high volume, long-wear mascara that results in precise separation with buildable results. This came just in time as I was on the search for a new mascara to try. If you like a wet based mascara, you’ll like this. It has great payoff, buildable without becoming clumpy and long lasting. With these products, I can create so many different looks, using one or all of the shades. If you are someone who doesn’t like to use a brush, or is wanting to try the newest and latest in the makeup world, these eye tints are for you!
Do you wear makeup to the beach or to the pool? Is it ok to even wear makeup in the water? These are all questions I’ve asked myself. When I know I’m going to actively swim and get myself wet from head to toe, no I don’t wear makeup. Why? Because who wants to worry about if their makeup coming off or if their eyes are running? BUT I do always wear sunscreen! I’ve been a fan of this sunscreen from Peter Thomas Roth for years, and it’s what I use daily.
If you feel conscious about showing your bare skin in public (lets be honest, we all have some under eye bags we would like to cover), I have two easy diversions, sunglasses and a hat! These items will not only distract, but also protect against the sun! I always have a relatively cheap pair of sunglasses that I use for instances like this where I wont be upset if they get wet or damaged. So before you go out and research waterproof makeup, try going bare and slip on a pair of sunglasses and a hat! Problem solved!
Today at This Love Life I’m suggesting two staple items I think every woman should own. These are not used on a daily basis in my makeup routine, but instead, they are items that make a difference for a bold and beautiful look in the most positive way.
Suggestion #1: The bold red lip. This item is split into two products that go hand in hand. A hydrating red lipstick, and a matching lip pencil. I don’t know if you’ve ever tried to apply a red lip without lip liner, but lets just say things can get messy and spread. Applying a lip liner as an outline makes things so much easier especially for someone like me who doesn’t wear this look often.
It can be intimidating to wear a red lip, but I believe a red lip can match with any skin tone. You need this lip shade in your collection as a go to when looking for something to instantly spruce up your makeup look. Whether it’s a night out with the girls, or a date night with your hubby, reach for that bright red lip, you can’t go wrong with that.
Suggestion #2: Liquid Eyeliner. Liquid eyeliner can also be intimidating. It’s bold, takes a huge commitment, and can be hard to apply especially for a beginner. I do wear a pencil eyeliner everyday, but liquid eyeliner only happens when I feel like dressing up even more. Let me just say that it does make a difference. When applied correctly, liquid eyeliner can be so beautiful, bringing out and accentuating your eyes. Start off with a jet-black liner that will make a statement and make your look sophisticated and fierce.

I’ve always been a fan of Marc Jacobs, from his handbags, clothing, and beauty line, everything is well thought out giving customers quality products with style and edge. Being an avid fan and owning a few items from this line, I was thrilled to be given the chance to try the new Air Blush Soft glow duo.
This innovative powder blush duo palette features two shades for customizable color and delivers “fool-proof” radiance with 24-hour wear. I received the color Kink and Kisses which is a rosy/peachy color, perfect for light and heavier wear. Having using this for a bit now, I have to say I tend to grab product from the left side of the palette for an everyday blush glow.
The application is flawless, buildup is easy and the lasting power is strong. Packaged in the sleek black compact, this new blush is making quite the statement. This has found its way to the top of my everyday makeup giving me a light summer glow, and waiting to be built up for some upcoming fall looks.
The highly popular Naked palettes from Urban Decay have been a huge crowd pleaser, and still continue to be so. I’ve always wanted one, but couldn’t take the plunge since there were always so many other beauty products I wanted to try. Eye shadows are my least invested beauty products. I don’t wear a lot of eye makeup during the day, most of the time I just like to wear mascara.
The stars aligned and I was able to score the Naked Smoky palette for $27 (which regularly retails for $54!) This palette is great for beginners, or for those who are just looking for a palette that can give you multiple looks. Called the smoky palette, there’s a booklet provided in the package, which includes looks for a daytime smoky eye and the classic nighttime smoky eye. I’ve been using this for simple, easy everyday looks. Its shadows are easily blend able, pigmented, and lasts all day long.
I’m happy to add this to my collection and it’s fun to play with all the shades for different looks. This palette has it all, light shades, dark shade, mattes, shimmers, and as an added bonus a two sided brush, very convenient, especially for travel.
