Johnson’s Challenge: Baby Powder in my shoes!

There is a reason why my running shoes are making an appearance on Clumps. Just give me a second to explain. Okay, so remember I was tellin’ y’all that I was participating in the Johnson’s Challenge? Wellll…I’ve been coming up with alternative ways (in addition to stealing some of the great ones in the comments ;)) to use the baby powder, lotion, gel and and body wash.

And how to my stinky shoes come in to play? Hit the jump to see!

Amor de Lacquer: Wet N Wild’s polishes. Cheap n awesome!

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

Never ever knock the power  and awesomeness of cheaper brands of polish. I find that their formulas are just as good if not better than higher end polishes. And I’ve always known that about Wet N Wild polishes. Their Fast Dry Nail Color polishes claim to not only dry in 60 seconds  but they also have what they call a ManiCurve Brush. This brush is designed with a flat rod for even liquid dispersion and a rounded bristle tip.

And the most recent collection is named after some of our favorite TV shows. Check out Everybody Loves Redmond, Teal or No Teal and Buffy the Violet Slayer.

Pretty cool lookin’ crew, uh?

Johnson’s for Beauty Challenge

Y’all know me…I am ALWAYS up for a challenge. Especially when it’s beauty related. Johnson’s has challenged me to come up with creative ways of using their body care products. They have provided me with lotions, baby powder and body washes.

The easy thing would be to just apply it on my skin, right? Welllll, because my skin has been insanely sensitive these days, I am going to discover other ways to use these products. And I’ll be updating you along the way.

If you have any suggestions, let a sista know. 8)

New York Fashion Week Fall 2011: DKNY

While I’m not at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this season, I am loving the looks that I am seeing on some of these runways. Take the DKNY runway, for example…

Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer used such a unique technique for the lids.

Charlotte used Maybelline’s Line Express Eyeliner in Soft Black. She drew a line from the inner corner and took it out past the outer corner of the eye. The results?

A look that I’ll probably try to re-create myself. How hot is that?
