Lower Lashes to Go Batty For~ Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Typically, I don't wear mascara on a daily basis~ at least not on my top lashes.
However, I always wear mascara on the bottom lashes.

*Mascara on the bottom lashes makes a huge difference... but in a natural way.
It opens up your eyes and makes you look wide awake, but not in a flashy "Wow, she's wearing a ton of makeup" look.
*Applying mascara to the bottom lashes is even more important if you line the water line with a light color (nude, champagne, white) or highlight the bottom/lower rim of your eyes  (two tricks that will really make you look more awake). 

A lot of people (especially those with really short/thin lashes) don't put mascara on their bottom lashes because the brushes are too big and make smudges and racoon eyes.
Clinique comes to the rescue with their new Bottom Lash Mascara!

Handy Hand Creams

This East Coast Winter is beautiful.... but unbearable.
One of the side effects of the cold, dry winter air I see everywhere is extremely dry hands.
It's unattractive, it's uncomfortable, and it's unnecessary.
Get a good hand cream and it will definitely help you fight off the negative effects of the nasty winter weather.

If you have extremely rough and dry skin, wash your hands a million times a day, and have hands so chapped that they're starting to crack, I HIGHLY recommend investing in a paraffin bath.   It really does make a huge difference~ I've been using it almost every day to keep my hands soft, moisturized, and warm!

Here are my favorite hand creams.  All of these products are ones that I have tried over the years and continue to buy:
