The solution isn’t in your closet, it’s actually in your makeup bag. With the help of COVERGIRL‘s truNaked Shadow Palette and Waterproof Eyeliner Duo, you can tackle any wardobe dilemna. From adding a smoky bronze eye to winging it, this is how to add some drama to your look and take your spring florals to the next level.

Scroll down for tips on making your floral prints edgy, along with some serious outfit inspiration.

 Skinny scarves are having a major moment right now, so take advantage, because they’re one of the easiest ways to make your look instantly cool, just like a smoky eye. To get the perfect smoky eye, using COVERGIRL’s truNaked Shadow Palette in 810, apply Ginger over the entire lid, add Sunkissed to the inner corner of the eye, and blend the eye shadow in.

Who What Wear Tip 3

When you’re unsure of how to style your florals, just wing it. A defined cat eye adds drama and edge to any outfit. To complete the look, grab the truNaked Waterproof Eyeliner Duo in Ebony to draw a clean cat eye, adding a more defined winged tip with Sierra from the shadow palette.

“If you want a fuller pout, but happen to think that lip-plumping products have more of a placebo effect than anything else, don’t give up hope. Celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen showed us exactly how to enhance our natural lips with the strategic placement of a few key products. Grab your concealer, lip liner, lipstick, and gloss, and scroll through to see how it’s done!

1

Before

2

Step One: Conceal
Apply concealer to the center of your lips to brighten the area, which will make them look fuller.

Go all the way to the edge of your lip line, and blend the top edges up onto your skin.

3

Step Two: Line
Using the lip liner of your choice, line your top and bottom lips.

The key is to apply it right on top of your natural lip line, exaggerating it ever so slightly.

Be sure to use a freshly sharpened pencil; the point will be helpful for placing the color directly on top of your natural lip line.

Feather the color in a bit at the outer corners. Don’t extend the color all the way along the bottom lip.

Leave the center bare. This makes the bottom lip look heavy and pouty.

4

Step Three: Lipstick
Next, blend it all together with lipstick applied with a lip brush.

5

Step Four: Lip Gloss
For the final volume-amplifying touch, add a light-colored gloss with a hint of shimmer,

like this Lip Glacé ($25) in Bare Naked from Laura Mercier, to just the center of your top and bottom lips.

6

Done!
And there you have it: a pillowy pout in just four easy steps.”

We love our smoky eyes sparkly. We love our smoky eyes metallic. And we love our smoky eyes in every color of the rainbow. However, none of those looks are exactly daytime-appropriate. But when we hear the words “smoky eye” we can’t help but reach for the black eyeliner and silver shadow—the heart wants what it wants, right? To help remedy this “more is more” approach we’ve grown accustomed to, we called in celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen. Andersen assured us we can translate our love of the sultry smoky eye into a much more daytime-friendly version that’s just as captivating.

Keep reading to see how it’s done!

Before

Before you begin your smoky eye, make sure you have groomed brows to frame your face.

main.original.585x0-1

Step One: Lid Shadow

Using a large eye shadow brush, press a slightly shimmery, light taupe color,

like the one from Dior’s 5-Colour Eyeshadow palette in Montaigne,

into the center of your lid. Then, flip the brush to soften it at the crease,

and push the color into your lower lash line as well.

main.original.585x0-2

Step Two: Crease Shadow

Using a darker brown shadow, take a blending eye shadow brush

and swirl the color in small circles into the outer corner.

Create a little more depth by blending it up into the crease.

Resist the urge to take this step into your typical night-out application.

Andersen says it’s always better to start with less, and build up as needed.

main.original.585x0-3

Step Three: Liner

With eyeliner, Andersen says you want to define the eyes, but not see the liner.

Start at outer corner and use short strokes right at the base of the lash line.

As you work in toward the inner corner, make your strokes even lighter.

Then, grab the flat brush you used earlier and smudge it in.

We defined both upper and lower lash lines, but that choice is all yours.

Just skip the waterline for daytime. We used Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Roach, a cappuccino color.

main.original.585x0-4

Step Four: Mascara

Day or night, no smoky eye is complete without curled lashes and a healthy dose of mascara.

main.original.585x0-5

Done!

And when in doubt, blend. A daytime smoky eye should be blended out to a soft, hazy finish.

When you can’t blend anymore, you’re done!

Most people’s thoughts on lip liner fall into one of two camps: Duh—I’ve totally got this or No way—I would have no idea what I’m doing. Either way, we’re guessing you’re not using this technique. Shown to us by celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen, this method is simple and effective. You’ll get a perfectly even shape every time, and it only takes four steps.

Keep reading to find out how it’s done!

main.original.585x0

Step 1: Place your pencil at the highest point of your Cupid’s bow.

Draw a diagonal line extending down from that point, following your lip line.

Do the same thing on the other side to create an X in the center of your top lip.

.

Step 2: Starting from the top of your X, draw a line down toward the inner corner of your mouth.

Andersen says to sketch the line so you can adjust as you go—don’t attempt to do it in one swoop.

Then, do the same thing on your bottom lip.

Start from the inner corner, and sketch the line out just to the center of your lip.

.

Step 3: Repeat step two on the other side.

When applying the liner, Andersen says to be sure you’re using the pencil

right on top of your natural lip line (a sharp pencil helps with this).

.

Step 4: Fill in with lipstick. Andersen likes to use a lip brush for this step

to blend the liner and lipstick together.

Done!

We’re never ones to turn down an opportunity for a smoky eye, but we have to admit that sometimes what looks amazing on a set of big, doe-like eyes doesn’t translate for the girls who have less eyelid to work with. Enter: the reverse smoky eye. Take the smoked out shadow that accentuates big eyes and flip it upside-down. Okay, there’s a little more to it than that, but that’s what celeb makeup artist Lauren Andersen is for. Below, she shares her insider secrets on creating a flawless “reverse” smoky eye, perfect for those with small eyes, hooded eyelids, and monolids.

Keep reading to see the four-step tutorial!

before

Before

You won’t need to start with anything more than minimal makeup —

this reverse smoky eye will definitely be the focus of your look.

1

Step One: Apply Light Eye Shadow

All of the drama will be concentrated on your lower lid, but to prevent the top lid from looking like an afterthought,

add a little shine with a pale shimmery shadow. Pack it on to your lid using a flat brush.

2

Step Two: Line the Lower Lid

Take a chubby black shadow pencil, like the Nars’ Soft Touch Shadow Pencil ($25)

(this shade has some gold shimmer in it to play up the smokiness),

and apply it all along your lower lash line and waterline.

Andersen likes to use shadow pencils for this step because they’re more malleable than liners,

so you have better control of where the color goes.

3

Step Three: Blend

With a small flat brush, use sideways strokes to buff the color in.

Soften the edges and extend the pigment ever so slightly past the outer corners and inner corners of your eyes.

(Note: You may have to go over your waterline if your blending faded it out too much.)

4

Step Four: Smoke It Out

Now really smoke it out with a shimmery cool-toned brown eye shadow.

We’re using a shade from Dior’s 5-Color Designer Eyeshadow ($60) in Amber.

With a small brush, apply the shadow over the black pencil, focusing on the edges.

This will soften the look and help you achieve the ever-important color gradation every smoky eye needs.

5

Done!

No smoky eye is complete without a generous dose of black mascara.

We used Dior’s Diorshow Mascara ($25) to finish off this edgy look.

It might seem like everyone around you is coming down with a cold- so it might seem like a better idea to stay home and watch House of Cards for the rest of your life. That sounds lovely. If you figure out a way to do that, let me know. In the mean time, I have a homemade herbal remedy that will boost your immune system and help fight off germs. Behold – the Fire Cider. This tangy tincture includes garlic, horseradish, hot peppers, onions, turmeric and apple cider. All the ingredients, finely chopped and combined in a mason jar, stand and ferment for about two weeks. The strained liquid is called Fire Cider. It is one of nature’s strongest antibiotics as well as an anti-fungal and anti-viral remedy.

IMG_3388

A couple of words about the natural properties of the ingredients:

Apple Cider – a good source of vitamin C and acetic acid. It contains mineral salts, amino acids, helps with digestion and washes out toxins. (If you read my Bone Broth recipe, you know the importance of using apple cider to draw out nutrients from other foods).

Garlic – treats high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fungal infections, and helps regulate blood sugar. It is also great for boosting the immune system.

Onion – an anti-inflammatory and beneficial to cardiovascular health.

Hot Peppers – anti irritant properties. They can help digestion, ease allergies, prevent migraines and speed up metabolism.

Ginger – reduces inflammation, stimulates circulation, and inhibits rhinovirus – which causes the common cold. It also benefits the intestinal tract and may prevent stomach ulcers.

Horseradish – has antibiotic properties, helps relieve symptoms of water retention, and treats sinus infections, urinary tract infections, and bronchitis.

Turmeric Powder – boosts immunity, helps maintain normal cholesterol levels, puts the brakes on aging, is anti-inflammatory, and has beneficial effects on arthritis, allergies, asthma and even cancer.

.

Now the taste of Fire Cider may at first be surprising. It has a strong kick to it and the first unsuspecting spoonful made my eyes water. Personally, I happen to love the apple cider vinegar taste and the potency makes it seem like the germs and bacteria are burning away. Start with a tablespoon a day, and slowly work your way up to a small 1 oz shot. Take once daily as a prophylactic and immune strengthening aid. Increase intake slightly if you are actually under the weather, but remember to still work your way up to the full dose. Bottoms up!!

.

.

Recipe:

4 cups organic apple cider (raw is better if you can find it)IMG_3401

¼ cup finely chopped garlic

½ finely chopped onion

¼ cup grated ginger

¼ cup grated horseradish

2 fresh hot peppers (habanera, or cayenne work well)

2 tbsp turmeric powder

Preparation:

 IMG_34021. Combine and mix all ingredients (except for vinegar) in a bowl.

2. Transfer the ingredients into a Mason jar, and add apple cider vinegar.

3. Place a piece of parchment paper over the jar, before placing the lid on. This will prevent rusting.

4. Shake vigorously.

5. Place the jar in a cool place, and let stand for at least 2 weeks. Make sure to give it a good shake a few times a day.

6. After 2 weeks, strain the liquid using a metal strain.

7. Refrigerate in an airtight container. The tonic will last for up to 6 months.
