I feel like I should start with something deep like, “The eyes are the window to the soul and your eyebrows are the curtains…” I just made that up. Anyway, well groomed eyebrows really make a huge difference on your overall look. Some people have thick brows, some people don’t. I fall into the don’t category. As much as I would rather have a unibrow so I can shape my eyebrows how I want, that ain’t what I got. I naturally have lightly colored eyebrows to the point where you can’t actually tell they are there sometimes. To remedy this, I have to fill them in. There are tons of methods for filling in eyebrows, with sculpted brows a very popular version these days. But if you are like me, and don’t always want the sculpted brow look, then you may want to give this product a try.
I blogged about it (here) a few months ago as a beauty product that I want to try out. I picked it up shortly before going to Jamaica (W.I. not Jamaica, Queens) because I knew that it would be hot but wouldn’t want my eyebrows to melt away into oblivion. I have to say, this thang worked like a dream. I was in and out of the pool, I worked out, on the beach, and consumed by the general heat yet my brows didn’t budge or smear!
This product is a bit on the pricer side being that it’s 28 bucks for 0.10 oz, however, a little bit really does go a long way.
Check out this before and after.
You will need a few minutes for the product to set. As soon as it does, you’re good as gold. OH! And I forgot to mention, it actually comes with the double-sided angled brush and spoolie which is helpful for grooming and blending.
On Sunday mornings, I want nothing to do with nothing. Then again, that goes for any morning. I am not a morning person. Although, when I am well rested enough to be up early in the A.M., it feels great. Sometimes. My goals for the morning time are to be on time (if I have somewhere to be) and/or to not kill anyone for talking to me. Especially if I or they haven’t brushed their teeth yet.
Simple outfits can feel very rewarding to me. I look presentable, I don’t look dowdy or unkempt. If I throw on some lipstick, then it looks more planned than it actually is, haha.
I’m a vocalist, so you will rarely find me without a scarf in the cooler months. I use to have quite the collection of scarves, but with the help of a few good friends and The Mission Exchange Thrift + Vintage store, I’ve been able to pare down to the essentials: leopard print, grey, red, pink, zebra print, a few fun colorful ones, and mustard. I’m going to try and find a new leopard print scarf because the one I haggled for $5 in Chinatown is getting a bit grody.
I haven’t had a pair of pointed toe flats in a while. So I was excited about these because they had a little flair going on. I’m not typically this matchy-matchy, but sometimes it just works out for the best. And…I was on time.
I’m sure many of you know that Rihanna is coming out with a clothing line called River Island. If you didn’t know, well, I suppose we are up to date now. If you thought that was it, she is partnered with M.A.C. to release a limited edition collection. RiRi Woo (a version of Ruby Woo), which sold out in 3 hours, is said to be restocked in June. They will be sold online for $15 at maccosmetics.com. So if you really want to get your hands on it, mark your calendar and purchase a few of them =)
