Color Blocking

Are you afraid of color? Have you heard about color blocking? I’m sure you’ve seen it around lately. It certainly is a bold trend but you’re not afraid of fashion. Color blocking is when you take opposite or contrasting colors and combine them. The results can be  pretty striking but then that’s the whole point. The thing about fashion is that you can’t run from it and this trend is everywhere. Some garments are already constructed into the trend or is it the trend into the garment? Either way it makes it easier to wear the trend since you don’t have to figure out how to mix and match the colors.

Quite a number of celebrities are wearing this trend already. Maybe after seeing it on them you may be more inclined to try it. Here are some for your viewing pleasure.

Tyra Banks

Rihanna

Ashley Greene

Kim Kardashian

Mascaras

One thing I never leave out of my makeup routine is mascara. Mascara darkens, thickens and lengthens your lashes. Who wouldn’t want that? It brings out your eyes and makes them more noticeable. Great to use if you’ve had a long night since it makes you look more “awake.” Even if you don’t wear much makeup, it would be a great idea to dab on some mascara if you just want to change up your look.

I’ve tried a few mascara brands but the one that I tend to stick to is Maybelline. The one that I use the most though is their Great Lash Mascara and I’ll continue to use it unless I find something that gives me better results. 

It’s hard to miss in its signature pink and green packaging, this mascara has been around for over forty years. Excellent for volume, this mascara is also hypoallergenic and contact lens safe. The wand on this mascara is what I like most. The narrow tip allows for contact with the tiny lashes in the inner corner of your eye so nothing gets left out. It is a bit hard to wash off but applying a bit of make up remover will loosen it up making the task easier.

The price of this mascara is around $37TT dollars and available at your local Pennywise outlets.

For hygienic purposes it is advised that you change your mascara every 3 to 4 months.
