  1. Target & E.L.F Makeup Brushes // Nothing like an affordable makeup brush! Skip the fancy $30 brushes, these brushes work just as awesome. Ranging from $2-$5, we love these because they come in all different shapes and sizes and we can afford to buy em' all!
  2. NYX Badunkadunk // Nothin' like a good ol' everyday mascara. It's got a great chunky brush, doesn't clump AT ALL, and comes off easy when you need it too. Perfect huh?
  3. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black // Don't know if were bias because it's Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen's line….but oh..my…smells..friggin…AMAZING. It's a sensual, woody scent with notes of violet, sandalwood and vanilla. You'll have those boys turnin' heads when you walk by! We literally want to bathe in it.
  4. MAC Bronzer in Global Glow // This is our absolute favorite bronzer. If you're looking for that dewy sunkissed glow, you need to drag that booty straight to MAC and get this! It stays on ALL day, and looks fantastic with our summer tan. Not too orange, and not too sparkly…it's just right!
  5. Sephora Real Red lip liner // A really good basic red liner! Goes on smooth and lasts a while. Goes perfect with any basic red lipstick!
  6. NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker // We're ALWAYS on the hunt for a great liquid eyeliner. Either they're way too transparent, or they rub off too quick. Or the brush just overall sucks. After tons of trial and errors, we finally found a good one! The marker tip is easy to use, and it lasts a good amount of time. Bring on the cat-eye!
  7. Sephora Cream Lip stain 01 // The perfect red lipstick! It's super creamy and doesn't feel super dry like every other lip stain does. It stays on for a while and stays pretty vibrant too! It's our go-to red lip for sure.

Daily Horoscope // 8-1-14

leo

Today it's important that you make your own decisions and stick with them, Leo. Much as you prefer to depend on others, your judgment really is best. You'll be paralyzed if you think only of how others will react to your decisions. You do know what is best, and everyone will benefit when you act on your beliefs. This is no time to be wishy-washy. Just do it.

virgo

You're a dreamer, Virgo. Everyone loves you for it, but today the planetary aspects urge practicality. There are personal issues to resolve, and it does no good to have your head in the clouds. This is a time to focus on loved ones. Perhaps your partner or your children feel neglected. Do whatever is necessary to let your family know you're available and eager to give them what they need.

libraMuch has happened recently, Libra. Have you allowed enough time to process it? It's likely that big changes are brewing at home or work. Stay focused on the job at hand rather than fret about events over which you have no control. You may feel as if you're on a roller-coaster ride, but everything will settle down in a few days. Blink to adjust your eyes to the strange new light.

scorpioYou've made progress these past few weeks, especially where your temper is concerned, Scorpio. It has taken some effort, but it does seem that you can overcome your tendency to speak before thinking. Don't lose the ground you've gained. There's one person whose mission seems to be to make you explode. Don't let him or her rankle you. Take a deep breath and rise above it.

sagitariusThis is likely to be an intense day, Sagittarius. Family and friends may seem testy, so you're advised to stay out of their way. Don't worry – it isn't anything you've done. It's the planetary energy. If you can go someplace private and shut the door, do it. If someone tries to pick a fight, don't rise to the bait. Tomorrow the air will clear and good spirits will reign again.

capricornThis isn't the most cheerful time, Capricorn, because important issues are rearing their heads again and forcing you to address them. You'd rather not, but you can't wish them away. The time has come to deal with them once and for all. It's especially important that you make an effort to make your home life more positive and upbeat. Your loved ones look to you to set the tone.

aquarius2Don't try to force anything or anyone right now, Aquarius. You'll find that today's elements are just as stubborn as you are. Today's planetary configurations will force you to finally start to turn your dreams into reality, whether you want to or not. Face it – you've been planning for a long time without making much concrete progress. All that is about to change.

piscesYou're incredibly productive, with good business sense, Pisces. However, lately you may have felt dissatisfied with where you are in life. As you look around, you might wish you had more possessions to show for all your hard work. Don't pursue this line of thought. Real value comes from relationships and the pride you get from doing a job well. A new car or fancy clothes may lift your spirits, but it's superficial.

ariesYou have a keen analytical mind that has served you well in business. Alas, Aries, this characteristic doesn't always serve you well in your personal life. It's likely that someone close has bristled from your lack of empathy. Take time to reflect upon the events of the past few weeks. Did you inadvertently send a wrong message? Correct any unintentional slights. A simple "I'm sorry," will do wonders.

taurus This is the beginning of an exciting period in your love life, Taurus. Your relationship with a significant other may have been in a rut lately, but that's about to change. Both of you are ready for something big. Perhaps a move is in store or you could both decide commit to one another more permanently. Follow your instincts, because they'll lead you where you're meant to go.

geminiYou have a passionate nature, Gemini. Sometimes it's difficult for you when other people don't share your exuberance. This is a good time to tone things down a notch. There's some tension in the air, and your enthusiasm only serves to annoy rather than charm, as it usually does. Don't pout. It's only temporary. Tomorrow you'll be the center of attention again and bestowing hugs and kisses to all.

cancerThis is going to be a rather intense day, Cancer. On the positive side, you'll accomplish a lot. On the less positive side, you may be exhausted by the end of the day. You're advised to try and pace yourself. Remain focused on what's truly important rather than let yourself get caught up in trivia. Keep the big picture in mind and the little things will take care of themselves.
