I fortunately, have a natural arch in my brow, so I don’t worry about adding that in by way of waxing or threading. I literally just fill and set my brows, and when selecting your filler color, you always want to go a shade lighter than your natural hair color. You do not want to fill in with a shade similar to or darker, because it makes your eyebrows stand out in a bad way. Filling in your own brows with a color as dark as your natural hair color (I know, this fact confuses me too; shouldn’t my filler color be the same shade as my hair?). But the color intensifies and your brows that are too dark (in comparison to the rest of your features) look unnatural, also heavy filling with powders makes your brows do the same.
The key to filling in brows is to do so with a light touch, almost feathery. Don’t color or paint them in like they are you your first grade art project. This is the case no matter if you’re using, brow gels, pencils, or powders, an uncontrollable hand is the enemy of all works of art!

Physicians Formula Eye Booster Lash Kit
I have recently stumbled across the newest innovation in lash technology… these little tiny phenomenon known as, Lash Extension Fibers! Lash fibers are lightweight, sculpting fibers that build upon your own lashes to create a naturally voluminous lash look.
Makeup companies such as Younique, Too Faced, Tarte, and Make-up Forever have jumped on the lash fiber bandwagon, coming out with their own “brush on lash extensions”. The least of which cost $20 minimally, but recently I’ve stumbled across my beauty steal of the moment, Physicians Formula Eye Booster Lash Kit ($11.99) and it actually works!
Guaranteed longer, thicker, fuller lashes in minutes! The mascara/fiber duo is buildable and has a flawless after effect. The above photo displays three coats of mascara and two of the lash fibers. FOREWARNING: prepare yourself for tons of open eye contact and an outpour of lash compliments!

This thing I like to call the “Kardashian Kraze” produced two great obsessions, big butts and long luscious lashes. The beauty industry has erupted with lash [extension] lounges everywhere and lavish promises of extreme lash enhancements from serums to magic mascaras to lash to falsies. I have experimented with all options, except serum because I am not committed enough to apply the serum diligently, plus have you read some of the side effects? The most disconcerting of which, is the “irreversible skin darkening”… umm, no thank you! I just wanted longer, thicker lashes without the accompaniment of weird skin patches or eye irritation.
These little lashes have caused a big stir in recent years. I mean women have always sought after the luscious “butterfly effect” lashes institutionalized, first by Hollywood and then the beauty industry. I to obsess over having long beautiful eyelashes, even without any makeup on lashes just have a way of softening and/or enhancing your look. From subtly soft to sexy sultry, eyelashes have become a beauty class all their own.

Whenever I feel like my look needs a little enhancing, I like to pop on my fave false eyelashes by Kiss. When it comes to my make-up applications, I’ve always preferred the natural, [soft] feminine look. Keeping that in mind when I apply my make-up, I prefer to maintain that look even when I am “enhancing,” so I always keep a couple of boxes of Kiss Natural Lashes in the look Shy (apprx $4.49) on hand. The way I would describe the look of these lashes is soft, dainty, feminine, and natural! I just started really wearing make-up this past summer and the following picture was my first attempt at putting on and wearing falsies.
*These lashes are super inexpensive and are available for purchased at Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc.
