Spring and summer usually have a more casual feel when it comes of fashion. The peasant blouse is the perfect example and is back in style for 2014. The peasant blouse is loose fitting and is a mix of casual and polished. I recently purchased this peasant blouse from JCPenney. I dressed mine up a […]

There are a lot of things that change after turning 40. One of the things that surprised me was my eyelashes became thinner, shorter and lighter.
Most days I use mascara and an eyelash curler to add shape, length and volume. But sometimes if I’m going somewhere special I enhance my eyelashes a little more with false eyelashes.
False eyelashes have come a long way! They look more natural than ever and are easy to apply!
Here’s how to apply false eyelashes so they look as natural as possible.
You’ll need false eyelashes (duh), a Q-tip (or a toothpick), tweezers, and glue. I use the Ardell brand and I’ve used several different ones. Today I’m using the #105 Glamour length. If you want something a little less subtle try #110 or the demi whispies.
First I put my eyeliner on my eyes and one coat of mascara to my natural eyelashes. Then I remove the false eyelashes with a tweezer. Be careful not to pull any lashes out.
Next I put a drop of glue on a piece of paper. You only need a small amount, I always squirt too much out!
I use a Q-tip to apply the glue to the lash line on the false lashes. I always try to add extra to the ends. I want to make sure they don’t come loose.
After you have placed the glue on the false eyelashes, let the glue dry for about 30 seconds (it’s best not to blow on them.) Then carefully apply on the lid as close to the roots of your natural lash line as possible.
I apply them from the outer corner of my eye inward, pressing lightly. The white glue dries clear, so don’t freak out if you see glue, it will disappear.
Once the false eyelashes are applied, let them dry for a couple minutes and then add mascara to blend them in with your real ones.
This is a picture I took a several months ago without false eyelashes.

(I get a lot of emails about tying scarves so I’m sharing this post from last year again. This is 3 ways I like to tie my scarf. Hope it helps!)
1. The Double Loop Wrap
Place the scarf around your neck with the ends hanging in the back. Loop the ends of the scarf around and back to the front. Tie the two ends together with a simple knot to make the second layer.
2. The Pretzel
Fold scarf in half and wrap it around your neck. You’ll have a loop on one side and the two ends on the other. Pull one end through the loop. Twist the loop and pull the second end through. Adjust as desired.

3. Neck Tie Knot (tied like a man’s neck tie).

Hey friends! Well, I’m a little frustrated! I’m trying to do more videos but it’s sooooo hard. I watch a lot of videos and I’m not satisfied with mine yet.
The only way I know to get better is to keep doing them. So I know I’m going to look back on this and think, “that’s horrible!” Actually I already do—-bad sign.
Anyway, some of you emailed me and asked if I would show you how I use the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. So this is my feeble attempt.
Because I have deep set eyes, it’s a How to apply eye shadow to deep set eyes video. Thanks for being patient with me!
