Groomed eyebrows are a girl’s signature of fierceness ~Me
Groomed eyebrows can really lift a face. You may not have on any other makeup but when your brows are on point, somehow you are good enough to enter the great outdoors. I’ve watched tons of brow tutorials as I myself am not an eyebrow grooming expert. I do OK but I’m always looking at other ladies videos to see if there’s a way I can improve upon my technique.
How do I get that crisp, sharp brow without spending a half an hour to get it?
There are TONS of videos on Youtube and on beauty blogs. Many of them are very very good. Some are even great. However, spending 1/2 my morning to achieve a look is not quite my thing. My eyebrows don’t have to be perfect but they do need to be somewhat sharp.
I’ve seen ladies use a combination of products including powder, pencil, eyebrow gel, concealer/highlighter and more. I just want to make my brows look neat and sharp. Does it take all that? Apparently, if your eyebrows are really sparse, it does. In other words, if you don’t have any brows, obviously you need to work much harder to create them!
Now, you may not agree but I seriously think the following videos are the most simplistic I’ve seen on eyebrow tutorials. I couldn’t narrow it to just one. They are both just so darn…..good! (and simple. #key) Check them out for yourself:
In a bit of a rush, after washing my hair yesterday I threw a few large two strand twists into my natural hair.
I hadn’t done twists in a while because I’ve been either protective styling or wearing my natural hair out curly. The problem is I have incurred a lot of tangling which led to long finger detangling sessions. Argh!
So, I decided to return to two strand twists. Why? Well, my hair seems to tangle the least when it’s twisted up. When I take down the twists on wash day, I have much less tangling. Even if I rock a twist out, when it’s time to wash my finger detangling session isn’t too bad.
When you wear twists, you still want to style them right? Well, I’ve come up with three cute hairstyles for large two strand twists:
Do you wear large, small or mini two strand twists?

Eye cream isn’t just for old ladies. When you sleep invisible, tiny tears occur under your eye area when you sleep. This is a result of your face rubbing against your pillow.
Also, many people tend to avoid the eye area when applying sunscreen or moisturizer with spf – leaving that area exposed. Check out this video on how to properly apply eye cream and my explanation of why you need to use it.
You’ll notice in this video that I do not use the technique of patting the cream under my eye. Many people apply eye cream that way and that’s fine. I start out by patting the cream under my eye but then I blend it in an upward fashion. That’s just a matter of choice. What you will notice is I don’t drag my skin back and forth.
