So thanks to 3 of my best popple friends, I am now indeed a beauty product junkie. I'm surfing Sephora.com continuously and my wish list is miles long. I thought this would be a great place for us to post our beauty regimen blogs for easy reference and you can put in reviews on new products also (that's for you Jen!) Anywho, please join us junkies, you know you want too ;)

I used a black pencil to tight-line my upper lid and rim my lower lid too, again meeting at the inside corner of my eye. The look is more polished and easier to pull off when the lines meet and there are no 'loose ends.'

Additional tips:

- Use a waterproof mascara, this isn't the time for your mascara to run making a total mess of it all.

- If you tend to have dark circles, make sure you're using enough concealer (mix with a little eye cream) so they don't appear darker next to the added color of the shadows. If you're really dark around your eyes, nix a purple hue and go for a grey instead so it doesn't amplify them.

- Set the under eye area with a little powder just to lock it all in and you are ready to go!
