Tightline Your Eyes


Step 1:
Using clean fingers, gently lift your lashes upward. You'll see tiny gaps between your lash hairs, which you'll be filling in with eyeliner.
Step 2:
Using your eyeliner, lightly dab it in between each individual lash and get as close to the root as possible.
Step 3:
Technically you’re done, but if you’d like to intensify the look even more, you can tightline your bottom lash line, too. Gently lift lower lashes downwards, and fill in the gaps between each lash.

Thank you beautylish.com for this great tip!!

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Ok Weather, we're ready for you to cool down so we can cozy up in a fuzzy warm sweater and a homemade pumpkin spice lattte. Here is a great step by step recipe for homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte, perfect for a chilly Sunday morning curled up on the couch with your honey. 

   

How To Make a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Home

Makes 2 drinks

What You Need

Ingredients
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more to garnish
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups whole milk
1 to 2 shots espresso, about 1/4 cup
1/4 cup heavy cream, whipped until firm peaks form

Equipment
Mixer, whisk, or hand blender, to whip cream
Saucepan
Wooden spoon
Whisk
Blender
Espresso maker or coffee maker

Instructions

  1. Heat the pumpkin and spices: In a small saucepan over medium heat cook the pumpkin with the pumpkin pie spice and a generous helping of black pepper for 2 minutes or until it's hot and smells cooked. Stir constantly.
  2. Stir in the sugar: Add the sugar and stir until the mixture looks like a bubbly thick syrup.
  3. Warm the milk: Whisk in the milk and vanilla extract. Warm gently over medium heat, watching carefully to make sure it doesn't boil over.
  4. Blend the milk: Carefully process the milk mixture with a hand blender or in a traditional blender (hold the lid down tightly with a thick wad of towels!) until frothy and blended.
  5. Mix the drinks: Make the espresso or coffee and divide between two mugs and add the frothed milk. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, or nutmeg if desired.

Substitutions

  • Milk Fat: This recipe is most satisfying when made with whole milk, but 2% and skim can be substituted.
  • Canned Pumpkin Substitution: You can substitute 1 teaspoon Torani Pumpkin Spice Syrup for the canned pumpkin if you have it on hand.
  • Sugar Substitute: You can use a sugar substitute in place of the sugar if desired. Add to taste.
  • Espresso Substitute: If you don't have espresso on hand, you can use strong brewed coffee instead. Increase amount to 1/3 to 1/2 cup.
