Remember the first time you started using make-up? Did your eyes take on the appearance of a raccoon or your cheeks look like an abstract painting gone bad? Thinking back to my 13-year old self, I cringe at my somewhat horrifying make-up journey. I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to look at those utterly embarrassing throwback pictures! My biggest mistake back then? A heavy dose of eyeliner. Thankfully I’ve learned a thing or two about natural beauty – and can appreciate the art of subtle eyeliner. Keep reading to make sure your flicks are on fleek!


  1. Buy the right products

Do your research! What brand of eyeliner will last the entire day and go on effortlessly? My personal favorite is Jane Iredale’s Black eye pencil – simple and sleek with one smooth application.


  1. Sit down for the perfect angle

Find a comfortable chair, take a seat and then place a mirror on your lap. While looking slightly down at the mirror, carefully apply your eyeliner in the groove between your lashes and lash line. You won’t believe how easy it is and how amazing it looks!


  1. Keep it light on your lower lashes

Unless you’re the lead singer in a heavy metal band, avoid applying a lower lash line that is too thick. For more natural and soft definition, apply a short stroke of color under the outer corner of your lower lashes. Finish it off with a smudging brush, blending the liner in toward the center.


Lastly, it’s important to keep the skin around your eye looking smooth. To eliminate those highly annoying fine lines, use Enza Essential’s Eyebright Intensive Eye Crème.

Oh, deer dear, Halloween is coming up soon! I absolutely LOVE this time of the year. It’s so much fun getting dressed up and acting silly with your friends, and the more creative, the better! If you’re still contemplating what to be this year, try this adorable, simple deer look!


Start by highlighting the tops of your cheeks, middle of your forehead, and along your cupids bow. I’m using Jane Iredale’s concealer (disappear) for a perfectly highlighted look.


Next, contour your eyes with nude shadows: Apply a cream shade to the center of your eyelid and the inside corner of your eye. Then blend brown shades in the crease area and outside corner. I love using Jane Iredale eye shadow (cappuccino) to create that pop of color in the crease area.


Once your lids are finished, line your eyes with black or brown liquid liner. I’m using Jane Iredale black/brown liquid liner to create dark bold lines.


After you’ve drawn your liner, coat your lashes with black mascara to make your eyes really pop!


Then, using a black pencil, create a deer nose by tracing the tip of your nose.


Lastly, draw small dots using a white pencil across your nose and upper cheeks.


From Enza Essentials to you: Happy Halloween!

If you haven’t noticed, big and bright eyes are one of the hottest trends right now. Everyone wants to get that bold, doe-eyed look. Since not all of us are blessed with Angelina Jolie almond-shaped eyes, it’s important to know some tips and tricks for getting that look. Here are 3 super easy ways to get bigger-looking eyes everyday:


Shape up your brows. Nothing makes eyes pop quite like a pair of perfectly-shaped brows. Removing stray hairs and creating an arch will give serious definition to your eyes, making them appear larger. Think of your brows as being a frame for your eyes – keeping them groomed and filled in will make all the difference.


Highlight your waterline. If you’re going for a smoky and ultra-sultry look, you’ll probably line this area with a dark color. Unfortunately, doing this makes your eyes look literally half their size. To make your eyes stand out, highlight your waterline with a white or nude pencil – this will instantly open them up and make them brighter. I’m using Jane Iredale’s Eye Pencil in White.


Define your crease. Swiping a medium brown shadow into the creases of your eyes may sound original, but you honestly can’t go wrong. This will give your eyes more depth, causing them to stand out and appear bigger. Using a soft, fluffy brush, blend shadow starting from the inside corner of your crease all the way to the outer corner of your eye.
