Beauty Scoop: CoverGirl Lineexact Liquid Eyeliner

CG LineExact
My new favorite eyeliner is CoverGirl Lineexact Liquid Eyeliner! For a few months I used Almay's Liquid Eyeliner Pen but I found that after just 2 to 3 weeks, the pen started to dry out and lose pigment. I'm just not interested in buying a new eyeliner every month.

I have tried three of the four shades of the CoverGirl Lineexact Liquid Eyeliner. I'll probably pick up smoke once my brown starts to dry out. These also dry out over time (like any liquid liner) but not as fast as Almay's pen. They seem to last a couple months before they need to be replaced. I would recommend Very Black as a starting color--it's definitely my favorite. Like the Almay liner, this one is also waterproof. However, I find it is much easier to draw cat eyes with this liner than the Almay.

What's your go-to eyeliner? Let me know below!

The Scoop on Healthy Living: Pilates

I cannot believe I haven't done a post on this yet! Ever since I was fourteen or fifteen years old I have loved Pilates. At my parents house growing up, we had one of those cool Pilates Reformer machines so it was easy to get a full body workout right at home (of course, I also played sports my entire life).

Pilates is amazing. I find it more stimulating than Yoga, but the breathing techniques are also very relaxing. After I moved to Santa Barbara for college, I had to find a way to stay active. I've gone through gym rat phases, but honestly, I'd rather skip the crowded, sweaty rooms, and gym fees all together. I turned to mat Pilates books and Youtube videos. Last year, I stumbled across Cassie Ho's Youtube channel Blogilates and instantly feel in love with her exercise programs!

She is so motivating and informative and knows what she's doing! Seriously, if you're looking for a new exercise regimen, check out Cassie Ho's channel.
