Brow Know-How

91955776.jpg 

Want to know how to acheive the perfect brows?  Try these 3 simple steps!! (I’ve got it all down except the not plucking above the brow…I always have a few I’ve gotta pluck!) 

  • Trace: Use a white eye pencil to outline your ideal brow shape, then plucking hairs outside the line.
  • Pluck: Only tweeze beneath and between the brows. (Most pros prefer slant-tip tweezers) Removing hairs above can result in a lower arch.
  • Perfect: Use a pencil the shade of your brows to fill in gaps, blen with brow powder two shades lighter and set with.

Rihanna’s makeup artist Mylah Morales first lined her lips with a taupe liner, then applied a warm beige Shu Uemura lipstick and finished with a glossy coat of a pink CoverGirl Fruit Spritzer.  Those with darker skin should pick a deep beigy nude, while those with fairer complexions are flattered by a pinker hue, says Morales, who suggest pairing a pale lip with pink blush or bronzer to avoide looking washed out!

Must have mascara! UPDATE

lashblast1.JPG

Update- So I finally tried Cover Girl’s Lash Blast yesterday and I am head over heals in L O V E! It made my lashes look a mile long and even though the brush looked really big my lashes had volume without clumping. I was able to wear it until late in the evening without any of it wearing off or smudging on my eyes. I am going to save some serious money not shelling out $23 for DiorShow again Lash Blast seriously blows it out of the running. Gas prices soaring might be keeping you home for the holiday weekend so sneak out on your lunch break today and buy a tube you can amuse yourself for a weekend by checking out your amazing eyes in the mirror!

CoverGirl’s Lash Blast mascara is topping a lot of makeup must have lists. Oprah herself just endorsed it as one of her Summer Must Haves. Have you tried this mascara, what was your opinion? I have used other CoverGirl mascaras and loved them I can’t wait to try lash Blast.
