Happy Valentines Day!! Came across this and wanted to share :) .....

Hey Dolls,
Happy Valentines Day!! Hope you all have a fabulous day filled with love :)!!! Just wanted to share some food for thought :)!

“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
 For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
 For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
 For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
 For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
 People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
 As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”

Eyebrow Tutorial (a special request from jEnNroXx02)

Hey Dolls!
So I received a special request for a tutorial on my eyebrows.  My theory on eyebrows is as follows :)
  • A great brow begins with great grooming - whether it's waxing, plucking, threading...anyway you groom, this is KEY to a great eyebrow!! I usually have my eyebrows waxed once a month and then maintain them by plucking and trimming as needed (sometimes its every couple days - a week) When I groom I keep my eyebrows filled in this way I'm able to see which hairs fall outside of the eyebrow I'm trying to achieve and pluck them out.  This just works for me best :)
  • A little at a time - whether it's with a liner pencil, eyebrow powder/shadow, or any eyebrow kit of your choice (mine is Benefit's Browzings in Medium which comes with a powder side and a wax side to seal everything in :) ) applying your eyebrows a little at a time with small strokes helps keep my eyebrow looking as natural as possible and helps fill in the brow more thouroughly.  Also it allows you to control how dark and intense you make the eyebrow. It's alot easier to apply more than to take away without compromising the look.  It is a bit time consuming but I find it works best for the look I am trying to achieve :)
  • Set it in - Use a brow gel/wax/set to seal in the eyebrows. You don't want any little flyaways messing up your beautiful creation lol so make sure those babies aren't going anywhere hahaha.  My favorites are the brow wax that comes in the browzings kit and also MAC's Brow Set. 

I hope this tutorial is helpful to you all :)!!!
Much love, XO - Em
