This weekend was pretty awesome as always! Friday night was our usual date night full of sushi and Lost! We’ve been watching it on Netflix, and there wasn’t a movie we could agree on so we watched 5 episodes of lost. Pretty standard. . . Then on Saturday we spent the day with our niece and nephew, Amauri and Me’Sean. We had some pool time, and then the drive in! I love having a drive in so close by that we can go to occasionally – makes me feel like we’re in the good ‘ole days! But I think everyone feels that way because it was PACKED which made it a little stressful.
Since we were with the kiddos and in the sun a lot of the weekend, I spent most of it just in some powder and mascara so I looked fresh and bright eyed. One of my biggest pet peeves, and it always happens to me especially when I’m in a rush, is mascara on my eyelids! I don’t know if this is just the usual or if it has something to do with the shape of your eyes . . . I’m going to guess the later. I still hate it, and needed to find a way to fix it. Here’s the two ways I found that work best for me.
When you don’t have on any shadows or anything, it’s super easy to get off with just a q-tip! Just gently rub along where the mascara has landed, and swirl it along your lashline. Viola! I’ve even used this method when I only have on a light shadow and it works pretty well without messing anything up.
excuse my hair . . . it was still wet 🙂
For when I have a lot of shadow or have just done a really good job and don’t want to have to re-do it, then I needed a preventative measure so I didn’t even risk getting the mascara on my eyelid. I had heard of shields that sephora has, but who wants to spend $5 just for that! So I came up with using a spoon as my shield! Works perfect . . . and the best part is it fits right in my makeup brush roll.
My brush roll was another etsy purchase from here!
How was your weekend?
