Getting Pretty with DAHLiiA

Last month I went to the Lulu’s Style Studio event with some darling ladies: Katy, Alex and Nnenna (you can see their recaps here, here, and here) and I was surprised and really happy to see so many natural beauty products at the event!

The brand that caught my attention in a real way was DAHLiiA and I was really thrilled that Dahlia (the beautiful founder) gave me a sample of the Starlight Silver to take home.

Now friends you know I’m not a huge heavy makeup kind of gal. I like to keep things simple and easy so you might think that silver eyeliner is really not applicable in this girl’s everyday life, and in that instance you would be wrong!

This little guy adds light to my face! I mean really it instantly seems like my eyes are wide open 🙂 and I love that.

I never really feel like myself wearing dark eyeliner during the day, for me it looks too evening. So when I wear makeup for my daytime life I instead put on a bright eyeliner typically a champagne or white on my inner eyelids and I find that it instantly makes me look more awake but I really do like the effect of DAHLiiA‘s silver color even more, in fact I am making that switch.

Okay because I love you I will show you me before…no makeup.

And noooowwww after :D.

I only have 3 things on my face: DAHLiiA Kohl Eyeliner in Starlight Silver; Oraganics Jumbo Lash Mascara and Aquafor on my lips. I typically wear a couple more items when I decide to put on makeup but for this review I thought it best to show you what just a teeeny bit of makeup can do.

The wonderful thing about Dahliia’s kohl eyeliner is that they are all natural that means: • NO PARABENS • NO PHTHALATES • NO SILICONE • NO SYNTHETIC PRESERVATIVES. Also awesome, NO SHARPENING! Because of the shape Dahliia’s kohl eyeliner self sharpens annnnnd the packaging really can’t be beat.

Dahliia is still fairly new and already getting great reviews like being featured in February’s issue of Real Simple.

You can get your kohl eyeliner from DAHLiiA at your local Whole Foods, Amazon or right HERE.

Annnnnnd friends! DAHLiiA is hosting a product giveaway; winners (that’s right there will be 3 winners) will be drawn on March 15th.

    this is such a great idea!I love using white on my inner eyelids or even my waterline but I don’t ever go for silver! It seems so evening for me, lol. but I think the way that you’ve applied it here works perfectly for daytime. I guess I always think of crazy glimmery eyes when I think of silver. I think I’m going to give it a test run today 🙂

    Still jealous you got this little sample! And you are right it looks amazing on you. I’d say this is a serious winner and you will need to replace it when you use it all up. – Katy

      friend, you know i walked out of bno without my gift bag! I was in such a rush to meet my homie, I completely forgot it!

    You look marvelous, and I’m loving the eyeliner! I’ve used a white eyeliner before, but it just looked cakey and awkward on me. The silver looks so pretty on you, and the product/packaging seems like the perfect bonus (no sharpening, yay!). Definitely going to check out the brand – thanks for yet another introduction! 😉

    Gorgeous! It really does just make you look alive, but it’s so subtle. I kind of hate you for having such beautiful skin without makeup, though. 😉

    oh my goodness how funny, my mother just sent me a beauty parcel over the wkd. and I have a share lined up. One of the items inside was a kohl black liner, I love it. but, it’s the first ones that I’ve used in a lipstick form, as the initial time I’ve used it was a long time ago given to me from my flatmate, and it was in raw form and cut. I’m amazed at how popular these versions they have become so suddenly in recent seasons.

    These liner looks great on you and love that it’s white, I like the way it hightlights your beautiful face.
    *and that gorgeous fuchsia fabric that you have in the photo looks like a winner! 🙂

    I love the way you’ve applied the silver liner- it looks so great! I’m also loving your nails 🙂 I still have yet to try any of the products we got in our goodie bags!

    The silver Looks so pretty on you! I’ve tried a lot of eye makeup but never the silver eyeliner. The look is very pretty and I might have to try it.
