I know it’s not even technically fall, but before you know it, that aisle at Target dedicated to floaty inner tubes and swimming pool toys will disappear, only to be replaced by the aisle overloaded with candy corn and snack-size Snickers bars (DAMN THOSE THINGS).
I’ll be thinking less and less about frozen yogurt and shave ice and more and more about turkey, side dishes and pie (I’m all about the pecan). And then, invariably, I’ll have to encase myself in a pair of sausage-y Spanx just to be able to fit into those form-fitting party dresses I can’t breathe in, but like to wear anyway, because they make me feel like I’ve still got it (she said, snapping in a Z formation).
My point, and I do have one, is that party season is almost upon us.
For some events, you’ll want to go all out with your makeup and really enjoy the whole process of getting ready. Those times are nice…
Other times, you’ll need to get ready NOW.
And it’s those times that Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners really help.
The Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners
UD recently relaunched this line of sparkly eyeliners, perhaps with parties in mind, because they’re absolutely fabulous for getting gussied up in a flash.
They come in seven fun colors, too, that once set, don’t budge for nothin’, so you can dance to Katy Perry all night long without worrying about your liner melting.
With these, when I have zero time to get ready, I like to touch-up whatever makeup I happen to be wearing that day by first blotting down the shine, then reapplying my liner, shadow and lipstick/gloss. Next, I’ll re-curl my lashes, and whack on another coat of mascara.
Then, I grab one of the Heavy Metal Glitters in a shade that matches whatever I’m wearing, and run the skinny brush tip applicator along my lower lash lines to add a sparkly kick to my look.
You can snag the Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners online now for $19 each at urbandecay.com (coming soon to counters and Sephora stores).
A meow-worthy Wednesday tune
You know I’m kind of a Katy Perry super fan, right? Well, I’ve been looping her song, Roar, for about two days, with no plans to stop.
By the by, if you happen to know where I can get a leopard-print crop-top like the one Katy is wearing in the video, HOLLA!
I’m thinkin’ totally cute Halloween costume.
