Perfect Brows

We may not always realize it, but our brows are very important! Nicely groomed brows will complete any makeup look. Your eyebrows frame your face, and if they're groomed correctly could also make you look a lot younger.

Here are a few ways to keep your brows looking good....

1) Do Not Over Pluck
A better way of wearing your brows is to keep them full. Fuller brows frame the face better and make you look a lot younger. Fuller does not mean bushy, so make sure you keep your brows neat.

2) Get Professional Help
Some of us might not like taking the extra trip to the salon, but it is worth it. There you can get your eyebrows shaped. Doing it yourself at home may not be the best way to do it. To lessen your trips to the salon keep up with your brows.

3) Tweezer Pluck Your Brows
After getting your brows shaped make sure you keep up with them. Just a few hairs here and there and you'll keep your shape longer. Remember not to over pluck your brows or else you'll lose the shape.

4) No Pain!
If you don't like to do your eyebrows yourself because of the pain, try plucking right after the shower. The moistness and hotness of the shower opens up your pores making it less painful to pluck.
Another good trick is to put ice on your brow for a few seconds before plucking to numb the area just a little.

I hope all of these tips have helped!
Let me know if there are any tricks you have.

Nail Polishes I LOOOOOVE

This is just pure glitter and JOY! I love love love this nail polish. It's so beautiful, shiny, and most of all distracting. I find myself distracted by the color of my nails while I drive (probably not too safe). Although I love this color to the fullest, it lacks longevity. I find that the nail polish feels off quickly. I'm going to need to find a way to make it stick! I never want it to go away!

Mad As a Hatter (Alice In Wonderland by OPI)

Here it is, Dorothy's red pumps in a bottle. My new roommate and I decided to take a trip down to Sally's and saw this in the Wizard of Oz collection by China Glaze. We are enamored. This is a beautiful twist to an untimely classic!

I first heard about this color on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. It was the episode where Kim finds a little lost stray dog. Right before she finds the dog she walks into the nail salon asking, "Do you have the color 'My Private Jet' by OPI?" I had to look it up, and duh! I fell in love.

It's a dark charcoal with exciting specks of metallic silver!

Things I am Loving!

This animal print phase I am going through is starting to stick. I've been loving anything and everything in leopard print or zebra print. I also love new things, like the infinity scarf. When I found a combination of the two, I was more than thrilled!
