Hope all of you had great weekends! Welcome to Mochi’s Makeup Mondays, our new weekly roundup of the best beauty news, products, and inspiration from around the web to get you through the hectic work (or school!) week.
Show off your nail polish collection on your wall:
Take a cue from Georgina of Cupcakes and Clothes and display all your pretty polishes using wall mounts—no more digging through cluttered drawers for the shade you’re in the mood for! Glamour did a great roundup of cute and creative ways to store your massive nail polish collection.
Liu Wen’s gorgeous eyes prove that there is nothing wrong with having a monolid. Photo via Monolid Love, a tumblr full of great makeup inspiration for all you single-lidded ladies out there.
Get your glow on:
With brighter days and longer hours, right now is the perfect time to swap your base—whether you use full-on foundation, an airy tinted moisturizer, or a multi-action bb cream—for something that will give you a gorgeous sunkissed glow. Our favorite? Stila’s Stay All Day 10-in-One HD Bronzing Beauty Balm ($38), which adds a luminous tint to skin while SPF protects and innovative technologies repair.
Twist it back:
An oldie but goodie—The Beauty Department demonstrates how to create a simple rope French braid. Their easy-to-follow tutorial allows even the least-coordinated hands to replicate this cute look. This would look so cute with your newest spring dress and will keep your hair out of your face all day.
Need it now:
Karine gives us a sneak peak at Essie’s summer 2013 collection—can’t wait to get my hands on those chic brights. I’m especially excited for Full Steam Ahead, a creamy, pearlescent lilac and Sunday Funday, a punchy bright coral.
