Hello Eyelash Tips!

Everyone loves having long eyelashes. But some people spend tons of money on products that assist in eyelash growth, when just a few simple steps will help them achieve the long and voluminous eyelashes that they desire.

Tip #1: Invest in an eyelash curler  (I use the Motives curler shown below) that has curved rubber edges instead of square ones. This will give you a smoothly curved eyelash rather than a square edge that will make your eyelashes kink in the middle of them (super annoying).

Tip #2: Heating up the curler and then curling your eyelashes will actually make them curl better than without heating it up. I have heard of some people using a blow-dryer to get this affect, however using a blow-dryer can be extremely dangerous [to your eyelashes, eyeball, or even the skin around your eye], if the curler is not cooled down properly before hand.

So let me tell you what I do. Before you curl your eyelashes, rub the rubber back and forth for 30-45 seconds; this is doing the same thing as a blow-dryer would, just much, much safer. Then continue to curl your eyelashes – gently squeezing the curler for 10 seconds. Top with a coat of lustrafy mascara to your top and bottom lashes (if desired) and vuala! Gorgeous, long, voluminous eyelashes!!!

Below I demonstrated what my eyelashes look like before I curled them, after I curled them, and after mascara is added:

Enjoy the rest of your day… with perfectly curled eyelashes.

Hello Make-Up Tip #1!

So there you are, searching through your closet to find the perfect top to complete your outfit. After half your closet is on the floor, you finally found it! You quickly slip it on and as soon as you do, those deodorant marks, once again, magically appear on each side of your shirt.

I know you all have had this happen countless times before. So today I’m happy to make you aware of my new favorite product to take care of this extremely annoying issue.

Each morning after you put on your deodorant and before you put on your shirt, spray on Motives 10 Years Younger Setting Spray. This spray is also going to freeze your deodorant to 35 degrees (don’t worry, you can’t feel it), keeping it in it’s place all day long. This is also used to spray on your face after you have put on your make-up. It keeps your make-up from setting into your pores while giving you that natural glow, making you look 10 years younger (hence the name). Pretty sweet, huh?. In fact, it was a key factor in how the make-up for my wedding this past weekend continued to look so amazing hours after it had been done.

It’s like hairspray for your body; works like a charm.


Fresh [make-up] never fades… literally.
