It’s a Wrap

This blog was created for a class assignment and has become so much more to me. Throughout my blogging experience the tool that was most effective was the sharing tool that automatically shares blog posts to your linked social media accounts. The least effective tool was the categories and tags tool. The categories and tags tool was in no way beneficial to my blog.

If I were to do my blog differently I would definitely take more time to really curate my blog posts. I would dedicate more time to researching my topic as well as take better and more unique photos. This experience blogging has already helped me and will continue help me in the future. The internship I just recently received wants to utilize a blog to help promote their brand and were very interested in my blogging experience. Blogging and branding is a vital part to public relations. The blogging community is becoming very popular and brings a whole new audience to public relations practitioners.

According to my WordPress stats, my most popular week was the week of April 4 to April 10 with 224 views and 117 visitors. My most popular post was “Live and Let Lash” with 84 views. I believe this post was most popular because I had been actively posting every week and my view count was increasing since my content was becoming more active. Out of all of my statistics none of the data was surprising to me. Overall my blog was a wonderful learning experience and brought me skills that will continue to benefit me in the future.

Draw Your Wings and Fly

Winged eyeliner is my go to makeup look. Using eyeliner can be really intimidating, especially if you’re new to the world of liquid or gel eyeliner. I remember the days when I would sit in my bathroom and look at the eyeliner having to mentally prepare myself to start this new challenge. Now eyeliner has become a staple in my beauty routine and here I am, your inexpensive eyeliner fairy godmother.

My new obsession is the L’oreal Infallible Super Slim liquid eyeliner. I used to use the Benefit brand gel push-up liner. The Benefit eyeliner is $24 and I honestly prefer the $9 L’oreal eyeliner. The L’oreal is not only cheaper but the liquid goes on so smooth and the pointed tip makes winged eyeliner a breeze. If you don’t believe me, here’s a picture below. It took me 2 minutes to wing both of my eyes. 2 minutes is pretty much 5 seconds in eyeliner time.

Some tips to make eyeliner a little easier:

  1. Use Eye Lid Primer before applying the eyeliner. The primer makes the eyeliner stay on to it’s full potential. I get a sample size of the Urban Decay Primer Potion, and it lasts me months for only $12.
  2. When applying your eyeliner try to angle your wing to the end of your eyebrow to create symmetry for both of your eyes. The eyebrow method will also give you the best angle for your eye shape.
  3. If you have small eyes, only draw your eyeliner to the middle of your eye. Doing my eyeliner halfway is the only way I’ll do my eyeliner, and it’s how I did it in the picture above.
  4. Curl your eyelashes before applying eyeliner in order to prevent smudging the eyeliner.

Now I have given you all the tools to get that eyeliner on point. Spread your eyeliner wings and fly sweet angels.
