Natural Eyebrows w/ Tarte

Image Source

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.

What method do you use for your brows?

Chattanooga Fashion Week


There have been many songs written about Tennessee, its beautiful landscape and the Choo Choo. But those aren’t the only amazing things about it. If you know anything about Chattanooga, it is a progressively artistic and creative city that is growing and thriving.

Last year, Chattanooga displayed its growing artistic culture by holding its first ever Fashion Week, showcasing talented local designers, models, and stylists. And this year is no exception!

I will be attending Chattanooga Fashion Week this year to cover the festivities, designs, and I may even indulge in some cupcakes and lemonade at Monsoon (which is a Chattanooga Fashion Week event).

Chattanooga Fashion Week


Chattanooga Fashion Week will be held on October 2, 2013 through to October 5, 2013. There will be an event for designers, an event for Autism Awareness, and much more! The week events will conclude with a series of scheduled events which will include a runway show. For the schedule, click here.
