NARS-Makeup-Removing-Water.jpgThere are few makeup cleansers that we think really do the job adequately. Most purport to take off your makeup easily, but few actually do it. But our new favorite cleanser is definitely NARS Makeup Removing Water.

This cleanser is both soap-free and alcohol-free, so it doesn’t irritate your eyes. You can even take off your eye makeup while you’re still wearing contacts and no irritation or redness will occur! And since it’s water-based, it isn’t greasy at all and makes skin feel smooth and supple after applying.

But what we really love is this cleanser’s ability to remove all makeup in almost no time at all. Even the most stubborn mascara and eyeliner are no match for this cleansing water!

NARS Makeup Removing Water retails for $28 at
Best-Three-Mascaras.jpgWith all the mascaras out there on the market, how could you ever hope to sift through them all and figure out which are the ones actually worth using? Well, that’s where we come in. We’ve tried what seems like every single mascara out there—and now we’re bringing you the top 3 cult favorites that really are worth the hype.

Dior DiorShow Mascara
Length. Definition. Curl. Plumpness. Is there anything this mascara can’t do? (Answer: no.) In just one light coat, lashes become so long and lush that, if you wear glasses, they’ll be bumping up against the lenses. If you want lashes that garner compliments, this is the mascara for you.
$24.50 at

Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara
Every makeup artist swears by it. It stays on even if you’re crying through a tearjerker like The Notebook. Oh, and it makes lashes look amazing. The signature pink and green tube has been around for so long, we simply can’t imagine the makeup market without it.
$3.99 at

L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara
Want to look like you’re wearing falsies? Enter Million Lashes. Your lashes will be super intense, rich and lush in just one coat—though we recommend two or even three for maximum impact.

I try to get a solid eight hours of sleep a night, but sometimes life just takes over — in good and bad ways. On those days when I haven’t had enough beauty sleep I turn to Say Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel to help with the dark circles under my eyes. I take one small drop and gently rub it into the skin just under my lower lash line, almost immediately I can see the circles start to dissipate. Followed by a quick cup of coffee, I’m usually feeling, and looking, bright-eyed and bushy tailed in no time.

rachel-mcadams-12072011.jpgRachel McAdams has been out of the public eye recently, but she looked as captivatingly beautiful as ever on the red carpet for the ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ movie premiere in Los Angeles. The best part of her makeup was the shimmery shadow at the innermost point of her eye — it made her eyes look bright and almost dewy.

To copy Ms. McAdams shimmery eye effect you should check out MAC Pigment in Kitschmas, you can find it for $20 at
up-and-up-eye-makeup-remover.jpgI may not wear a lot of makeup (about the only thing I put on regularly is eye makeup) but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have a proper way of removing it. Every night before bed I put some up & up eye makeup remover (AKA Target brand) on a cotton round and swipe it across my eyes several times to get all the makeup and mascara off. The formula is perfect for removing stubborn eye makeup and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. And best of all because it’s Target brand, it won’t set you back a fortune.
