Can you wink? Can you keep a secret, I can’t wink. ;)

I really try to keep my makeup routine as simple and easy as possible. This may have something to do with not really knowing how to wear it or just because I am pretty lazy. The products I use daily are mascara, under-eye concealer (those darn dark circles) and blush. As far as blush and concealer go, I have found my tried and true brand, but mascara has always been a different story. That is, until I tried Clinique’s new Chubby Lash mascara.  It extends your lashes without clumping and doesn’t smudge (smudging is my nemesis..but really). I will be testing out a few more Clinique products in the upcoming months!

Today, I am so excited to be partnering with Clinique to share the release of their new lifestyle website, The WinkThe Wink is not just about beauty- it’s about living your most beautiful, confident life.  Wellness, Art and beauty tips are just a few topics covered on the site. Even Gray Malin (one of my favorite current artists) shares his inspiration for his next travel photography series.  Be sure to head over to The Wink to see more.
