WACK HAC

When I was learning how to HAC I made a plethora of mistakes. Some of them took me years to figure out so I thought I would help you guys skip to the chase in case anyone was missing some of the same things I was! What I used: Contour Do’s: IIID Foundation in Walnut Alternative option: NYX Blush in Taupe NYX Eye Pencil in Taupe Contour Don’ts: Bare Minerals in Warmth (unless you are really warm and tan to begin with) or anything that isn’t a grayish brown Highlight Do’s: IIID Foundation in Sunlit Alternate option Clinique Even Better Concealer in Buttermilk or Jane Irridale Lemon primer Highlight Don’ts: Anything too fair or cool toned. Illuminator: IIID Pretty in pearl Have...

Small tweeks make a BIG difference.

Sometimes makeup can actually hide your natural beauty. Which is not cool. The cool thing is that with the same amount of time and money you are already putting in you can show YOU off rather than going undercover. There are a few pitfalls that I think most people (me included) have fallen into at some point. SO I thought I would compile some of the repeat offenders to help show the difference. Of course, as I always say, anything that makes you feel more beautiful, works. There are exceptions to every rule:) Celeste (my little sis) what lovely enough to model for me: {same girl/same day/ unedited} Harsh Eyeliner: Why? It can be very distracting and can make your eyes...

Baggage.

You look exhausted! Are you sick? I bet you could use a good nights rest!

And those same bags inspire this question that I receive maybe every single day of my life: How do I fix mine? It’s time I address that. First things first. We’d like to avoid having them at all. The way to do that is: gulping some major aqua getting your beauty sleep taking your vitamins being born that way I am aware that some (if not all) of the things on that list cannot always be attained, especially with babies around. I am also aware that...

Nose Contouring Do’s & Don’ts

In middle school, my best friend Shelly and I used to fight. Not like gossiping or flirting with each others’ crushes or doing sneaky three way calls or anything like that. We just, you know fought…or rather, wrestled. Often. We weren’t exactly ahead of the game, maturity-wise.

I will insert here that although I have no recollection as to what she actually intended to do with the book, it’s collision with my schnoz was unplanned and 100% accidental. Long story long, my nose ended up a little bit crooked. Which is why I HAC...

HAC yourself Flawless!

I cannot tell you how much I love this technique! Highlighting and Contouring (AKA HAC-ing) is the most miraculous thing about makeup. This is the magic that makes celebrity skin and face look flawless.   With no plastic surgery her nose looks MUCH smaller, her face looks more chiseled and her cheekbones look much higher.   Now, she is obviously A LOT tanner but aside from that, notice her nose, cheeks, and basic structure of her face… A lot of people are afraid of it but the ONE thing that should possibly scare you about HAC-ing is that you will get addicted! In this before and after below the only difference is HAC Notice how much straighter my nose looks?...
