Happy Valentines Day!

Let's be honest, today is a little bit of a commercialized holiday where people feel like they have to buy diamonds and chocolate. I'm all in for buying a little something special, but it's definitely a  reminder that doing something extra special doesn't happen often enough, haha. It can be easy to fall into a routine and not make it a priority of going out of your way to do special things for people. 
 So don't overthink a Valentines gift, something small and meaningful is just as great.

Today can be about honoring those around you that love you. Your parents, your grandparents, siblings and even best friends that are always there for you and hold a special place in your heart.
Take a moment and reach out to them and tell them how much you mean to you. I think showing someone love is greater than receiving it.

                                                          Happy Valentines day friends!

Classic Cat Eye

Lately I have been wearing different variations of a winged eyeliner looks. 
The most important tool to achieve it is the eyeliner brush. The built in liquid brushes are harder to get a precise line with. I love gel eyeliners like NYX or Venique since they are really user friendly since they are creamy. Don't be afraid of bold eyeliner! :) 

Winged eyeliner really helps open up hooded eyes.

It can be a soft cat eye or a bold night makeup look. 

I love e.l.f's eyeliner brush, it's tiny so you can really get a smooth line.
