Hey everyone! I'm doing a bit of editing to this site. Bear with me as the format will be incomplete for a while.

Happy Friday!


Classic Hollywood Glamour - Sophia Loren Inspired.

Here is the Sophia Loren inspired makeup look that I wanted to do for awhile. It's a mix of different photos of Sophia, which I will post below.. It was such nice day today - perfect for this makeup look, and, bonus, I got to whip out my lovely hat from H&M.

Sophia is a natural beauty, and she knew it. Any makeup that was put on her simply enhanced that. She had curves similar to Marylin Monroe, and such gorgeous eyes. There are a ton of tutorials of the Sophia look on the internet, if you wanted to try the look out for yourself. It it perfect for a night out. One channel that I keep up with on YouTube is Pixiwoo. They have an excellent tutorial on the Sophia Loren look.

I hope you all have a lovely Wednesday!

Eyebrow Plucking... (or tweezing)

I always thought the phrase 'I need to pluck my eyebrows', was so funny. I mean, its sort of like plucking a chicken, right? eh..not exactly.

I had very thick eyebrows. I look back at them now in photographs and I would have been so on trend with them now, dang it!  For me, I didn't tweeze mine until I was about 15 years old and I had no idea where to start, do I just start from the top, middle, or what?

When I finally worked up the nerve I just decided to go for it and start where they were the thickest, I took a little bit; then more, then a ton, until there was no going back and I ended up with thin, stringy eyebrows. I had done it! I felt so accomplished! (really though, I had made them way too thin, they looked awful).

It makes me cringe to think that I never even used a brow pen or, brow gel to at least fill them in and make them look pretty. I just left them that way and thought that's just how they should look. Who cares about the brows anyway? WRONG. Your eyebrows are one of the most distinctive features of the face. If those are messed up, no amount of makeup can distract from them. It will stick out like a sore thumb. Below is a chart that acts as a guide to shaping your eyebrows, and really, once you have your shape, it's all about the maintenance. I hope this is helpful to some of you!

Any hairs before 'line a' tweeze. This is where your brow should start. Any hairs in between the eye and brow 'line b' tweeze, to create arch. Any hairs after 'line c' tweeze. This is where your brow should end.

This is where I made a ton of mistakes. You should always tweeze in the direction your eyebrows are growing. If you don't you they will grow back in whichever direction they were originally tweezed.
