Beauty prayers answered!!!

By far one of the most popular eye shadow primers on the market is the Urban Decay Primer Potion.  They have a cult following and their product is actually really good!! As many tubes of UDPP that are out there, there are just as many videos on YouTube with people complaining about the shape of the tube.

You see, UDPP comes in a fancy, curvy tube and there is a ton of product hiding out in all those nooks.

Original packaging

There are lots of tutorials showing how to cut the tube to scoop out the product that you thought was done.  I am one person that refused to go through all that drama.  I instead bought Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

So after years of hearing the pleas of fans, guess who just redesigned their packaging!!!!!

The Brows

Before I get into eyes, I have to speak of the eyebrows.  Your eyebrows are absolutely important as they frame the eyes and the face.  It’s one of the first places that people see.  Many people have their brows shaped via threading, waxing or tweezing but really and truly, combing your eyebrows will make them look groomed.  This is where a spoolie or eyebrow comb comes in handy.  I think the metal brow combs are the way to go! The plastic ones break every 5 mins!  Also get a shape that suits the way the hair grows, eye shape etc.  Overly plucked brows are a no-no!
