Jennifer Connelly has always had strong, beautiful brows! Here she is at the premiere of her new movie “Reservation Road” at the Toronto Film Festival, September 13th.  

  • Your eyebrows add strength and definition to your face. Well groomed eyebrows enhance your beauty.
  • You should pluck eyebrows before bedtime so any redness will disappear overnight. In shaping your eyebrows use your facial features.
  • Use a pair of slant edge tweezers which grip hairs easily. Comb hairs one way and then the other to remove loose hairs.
  • You should pluck hairs between the brows and any stragglers. Never remove the hairs from above your eyebrows.
  • Pluck each hair individually close to the root. Work in the direction of the growth.
  • Always avoid over plucking. In defining your eyebrows choose a shade similar to your natural hair colour.
  • When using a pencil you should apply in small, feathered strokes. Starting at the inner corner work outwards.
  • Blend the colour with a brush. To tame stray hairs just use hair gel and comb through to neaten.

It is amazing!

I have read lots of reviews touting the great smell of Philosophy’s Amazing Grace. But I have bought a lot of perfume recently so I was hesitant to try something that I wouldn’t absolutely love. Well love is an understatement the smell of Amazing Grace is near hypnotic to me. It’s so fresh and clean smelling and very feminine without being overpowering or too floral. The first day I had it on I kept wondering what smelled so good as I was running my errands, then I would remember it was my new perfume.

Amazing Grace is a great scent for women who don’t like to smell perfumey, it’s very light and refreshing. If you are lucky enough to have a Sephora store near you, they even have great little trial size bottle for only $15. I think I am adding the lotion and bath gel on my next trip to Sephora.

Philosophy Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace fragrance for women is an uniquely feminine blend of soft, floral blossoms accented by a hint of light musk.

Indulge yourself – and those you are most thankful for – with good-for-your-body-and-soul treats from Philosophy’s Amazing Grace Collection.

It’s easy to look through magazines and forget how much work goes into making celebs and models look perfect. Even the diva herself JLo looks like an ordinary woman without her makeup. Without foundation and mascara these “celebs” look like just another girl. So remember we may not all be blessed with their multi-million dollar paychecks but we can take a few extra minutes each morning to look fabulous!
