It's the dreaded time of year: finals! Just because you were up all night studying doesn't mean you should look the part. While our Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter likely won't help you pass all your tests, it will help you look wide-awake and refreshed! Here's how we use it to go under cover...from dark circles!
1. Prime your eye area with our Hydrating Undereye Primer to minimize any dryness and keep concealer from settling into fine lines. Just dab onto the undereye area with a clean ring finger.
2. Using the wand of the Concealer end, dab a few dots of product on the darkest areas of the eye, and blend gently with a clean ring finger.
3. Now for brightening! Use the wand of the Highlight side to dab a few dots of product all around the ocular bone, up to the brow bone, as well as in the corner of the eye.
4. Gently blend with our Flawless Concealer Brush. Going under cover has never looked so good!

While we're grateful for the warmer weather and blooming flowers, we know there are still a few downsides to spring. Allergies, taxes, and the dreaded April showers! Yes, spring weather can be a bit, shall we say, unpredictable. When you know a sudden April shower might strike, we've got a few tips for waterproofing your look. We gave our friend Jackie a gorgeous look that'll last even without an umbrella!
2.) For rain-proof lashes, use Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara.
3.) Give everything a final spritz with the Makeup Mist & Set! Not only does this set your makeup and make it budge proof, but it adds a protective waterproofing veil too.

By now, you've probably seen our new play beautifully short film (And if you haven't what are you waiting for!?). Meet one of the stars of the film, the lovely Kristen!
Kristen is a sweet, natural beauty who loves a good, classic look as much as she loves to try new trends! We've pulled together all of her favorite products for a gorgeous daytime look.
2. After priming the eyes, we applied our Flawless Eyeshadow in Blushing Beauty. We patted on the pale pink base color with our Eyeshadow "C" Brush, then contour with the brown crease shade using our Crease Brush.
3.) We finished Kristen's eye look with a generous application of our 3-in-1 Mascara.
