The Friday Five [1.10]

Here at birdie&bijou INC, we love nothing more than a good feed reader. When Google Reader was discontinued, we thought we’d never get over it (#firstworldproblems). But we quickly gravitated to feedly, and alls well that ends well. We bookmark/save a TON of stuff – things we want to read again, things we want to share with others, things we want to refer back to and use or try someday. The Friday Five is our way of sharing some of what we’ve been reading with you. So without further adieu, it’s Friday, and here are five thing we think you might enjoy!

1. We are really digging Maskcara’s new series, Eyeshadow School. So pay attention, gather your supplies, and get ready to learn. The first three “lessons” are: The Wash, The Windshield Wiper, and The Halo. There *will* be a test, so take good notes!

2. Confused by all the jargon on beauty labels? Us too, which is why we’re very thankful to Refinery 29 for putting together this handy guide on breaking it all down.

3. birdie *literally* just said to a colleague last week that maybe she’s too old to be using Maybelline’s Baby Lips. After all, as a grown woman, isn’t it silly to whip that perky little tube out of your purse? But never fear, ITG is here, and they love Baby Lips too. They really are fab, so we say, get in touch with your inner 13-year-old and carry on with your awesomeness.

4. Emma Stone is perfection. That is all.

5. This holo gradient nail tutorial from Imperfectly Painted is making us believe we can actually successfully pull a nail tutorial off.

Have a beautiful weekend!
