Pre-Dame: A Beauty Guide for the Everyday Girl

Lauren Conrad’s Wedding
Photos of Lauren Conrad’s wedding have been released and while I’m pretty excited about the Kate Middleton-like dress reveal, I’m really only here on the lookout for her signature winged liner. True to form, Lauren went with a simple face and some heavy black liner on her upper lash line. She opted for a slightly bold brow paired with a rosy pink glossy lip and a slight flush on her cheeks.
What do you think? Wish she’d gone for something a little more out of the ordinary?
As a winged liner lover myself, I say, “Rock on, girl.”

Fall Must-Haves
It’s finally feeling like fall here in the city and it isn’t just the Pumpkin Spiced Latte wave this time. Saturday night was a cool sixty degrees and you best believe I finally had my new leather jacket on. I can’t wait for the full-fledged signs of fall; tights, beanies, and hot coffee that you don’t regret only a few minutes after purchasing it. In preparation, I’ve rounded up my five fall must-haves.
1. Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Lotion from Bath and Body Works will make you feel cozy, warm and maybe a little hungry. With twice the moisture and twice the Shea, it’s pumpkin and apple scents are just an added bonus.
2. Jordana Eyebrow Pencil makes doing your eyebrows as easy as one, two three. Such a quick brow routine means more time to give to the classic red lip I’ve been waiting for.
3. Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Fast Dry Top Coat means its time to break out the black nail polish. This quick-dry formula is the answer to all your last minute nail polish needs and the Diamond Strength means it’ll be chip-free for at least a week.
4. Yes to Grapefruit Dark Circle Correcting Eye Cream has been saving me lately. Three weeks into the semester and already I’m up late studying. A quick dab of this under each eye before I go to sleep means I wake up looking, well, somewhat human. 
5. Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Goldmine is my favorite preview to December’s tinsel filled New York City. I can’t wait for the holiday season!

Product Props: Younique Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes
I never really got the hang of false lashes despite many nights spent practicing, waiting for lash glue to get just tacky enough and watching tutorial after tutorial titled “How to Apply False Lashes.” Youtube, for the first time probably ever, you failed me. Since then, I’ve settled with 3-4 coats of Maybelline’s The Falsies mascara and some black liner in between my lashes to fake thickness. And then came Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes and I rediscovered what it means to fall in love with a makeup product. 
The Moodstruck mascara system has essentially changed the way we at Pre-Dame look at mascara. It’s a three-step process that allows you to work Green Tea chemical-free fibers into your lashes to add thickness and length. The result is a Maybelline-commercial worthy look that you can achieve in seconds.
The kit comes with two bottles; one is the Transplanting Gel and the other contains the Natural Fibers. You start by applying a coat of the Transplanting gel. This will allow the fibers to stick when you start to work them into your lashes. Then, you move onto the Natural Fibers and apply them as you would a regular mascara. The fibers immediately start to stick to the gel adding thickness and length. You finish it off by sealing it in with the Transplant Gel. And if you still want a little drama, you can repeat the whole process again.
I was pulling a mini Pre-Dame getting ready party with a couple of my friends when I first tried the mascara and my reaction was enough to get them inquiring and maybe laughing a little, too. It’s so rare to find a mascara that really delivers everything it claims and I immediately knew this was something different. There may have been some excited jumping. And a little bit of dancing. And a lot of obsessing since then. I was completely blown away at the results!
I get the chance to try out a lot of makeup products and samples and it’s not often that I’m positive I’ll be repurchasing something. When it comes to the Moodstruck Fiber Lashes, there’s no question in my mind that I’ll be going for round two when I run out. The mascara is waterproof so it won’t run but it comes off easily with soap and water with no harm to your real lashes.
