B.A.D. Girl Beauty Tip: 5 Ways To Fill in Your Eyebrows

I couldn’t’ agree more with the above quote; I always feel like a new woman when my eyebrows are on point. Ever since I discovered the wonders of filling in my very light, barely there brows I just don’t feel complete without them, especially when I am putting on a full face of makeup. Your eyebrows really do make a huge difference and filling them in takes them to the next level! Your first step is to figure out the perfect shape for your face and then you need to figure out which way you like to fill them in because each technique creates a different look. 1. Brow Pencil: This is one of the most basic ways to fill in your brows. Brow pencils come in varying shades and have a waxier formula than eyeliner pencils. This allows them to go on naturally and smoothly, without the risk of harsh lines so don’t try using your eyeliner! I personally use MAC’s self sharpening eyebrow pencil in Lingering ($16).  When applying use short, light strokes to …

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Get Better Results From Your Mascara

If I had to pick one makeup product to have with me on a deserted island it would most definitely be my mascara! I currently swear by Avon’s  SuperSHOCK Max Mascara as my ultimate favorite. It is so good especially for girls with long lashes because the brush is huge. So here are my tips to get get better results from your mascara and create perfect lashes. Purchase the Sally Hansen Sexy Curls Eyelash Curler. My sister introduced me and it is AMAZING.  You can find it at your local drug or beauty supply store.  You wont regret it. Throw your other one out and buy this one. Now. Use an eyelash comb to separate your lashes and curl them with your new Sally Hansen Eyelash Curler. Hold for 5-10 seconds on each eye. When you apply your mascara it is so important that you wiggle the mascara wand from the base of your lash line to the tip. So whatever you do, do not just brush your lashes with your mascara. You have to …

B.A.D. Girl Beauty Review: BA STAR Stardust Mineral Eye Shadow

BA Star Makeup specializes in creating products for chicas who are active and need makeup with staying power.  They sent me their Stardust Mineral Eye Shadow in Apricot and a  Body Shimmer Base that you apply to the area in which you want to add shimmer (or shadow) and this is what gives it the lasting wear. Its basically a sweat proof primer made to last all day! So I decided to test their products (made for performance) out by wearing them to the gym while I did my 2 mile run on the treadmill.   Here are my before and after the gym photos. Nothing changed except my skin got a lot more red lol. My eye makeup barely smudged though! Pros: Shadow colors are very pretty and affordable at only $8.75. The Shimmer Base helps the mineral shadow stay in place all day. Perfect for those long days when you go from work to play. Easy to remove. Cons: The shimmer base glue made applying the mineral shadow not as “smooth” as I am …
