With this week’s release of Lauren Conrad’s adorable, and beyond enviable, engagement photos, I couldn’t help but be inspired to try one of LC’s (yes, she will always be LC to me no matter how far she’s journeyed from Laguna Beach) signature looks—the cat eye.
Now while Lauren may have borrowed her inspiration from the original cat eye queen herself, Cleopatra, I sought my muses from the Spring 2014 runway. From Anna Sui to Dolce & Gabbana to Salvatore Ferragamo, the runway was covered with models winging it out. So as Spring approaches (hopefully sooner rather than later, am I right east coast?), I decided it was time to grab my eyeliner and try it out myself.
The ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen was easy to use and the color didn’t smear across my eyelid like with other liquid liners. I followed Lauren’s guidance for a more conservative winged eye, but based on the results, I might just knock it up a notch the next time I’m feeling…well, catty.
Have a beauty trend you’d like to see me try? Tweet me @han_cran, #beautynewbie, with your suggestion!
Mesh Shower Caddy: Shower caddys coming in all shapes and sizes but, please, take my advice on this one…get a plastic version that has HOLES for drainage. There’s nothing more disgusting than seeing mold at the bottom of your caddy, which WILL happen if you don’t get one with proper filtration.
Body Pouf: A classic. You might want to buy a few at a time since you do need to replace these every few months.
Revlon Pumice Stone: I’ve tried lots of foot scrubbing tools and this is honestly one of the best. You want to keep your feet freshly scrubbed while running around campus.
Orlando Pita Argan Haircare Collection: Guys, this trio is only $25! I mean, that’s a serious steal. You get a shampoo, conditioner and a hair treatment oil, all formulated by the fab Orlando Pita. If this existed while I was actually in college, I would be obsessed.
