My Instagram friends already know about my latest discovery in the art of obtaining longer, thicker lashes... in an affordable manner. So for those of you who are not on Instagram here's the original photo I posted Friday evening after a little stroll through Ulta.
Here's what you'll need for this little project...
I used Mabelline's new mascara, Cat Eyes. (I still prefer the Mabelline Falsies over all!)
Yes, this powder is only $3.49 at Ulta.
I actaully was reading September's People Style Watch and it was recommended so I went online to Ulta's webpage and they were already sold out. I called the Ulta in the next town over and they were sold out as well... but I drove by there anyway to get a braid headband (which was on sale...heeeyyy) & I happened to find ONE bottle left - it was hidden at the bottom of the display.
Sidenote: this is the same concept as Two Faceds product, Better Than False Lashes Nylon Extensions.
Steps 3 & 4 can be done as many times as you'd like until you like the look! I'm always in a hurry so I typically only do one swipe of the volumizing powder. The more... the merrier.
After I actually fixed my hair and put all my war paint (my dad's term for makeup) on... I took a better photo.

In other news...
I already IG'd this as well- but J. Crew's sale rack was rockin' last time I was in there... it was all marked down and an additional 30% OFF.
So I snagged this $75 dollar turquoise/white gingham shirt for.... $18!
And, on whole other note. John is in his psychatric rotation this month and the night before he started he set out a tie/shirt combo for his first day on the job. He came home that day without his tie on and explained that he would not be wearing ties during this round. SO... that cute guy bought himself a bowtie. I walked into our bathroom Sunday evening to find him listening to a British man on YouTube teach him how to tie his bowtie.
Does it get any cuter?
