BROW TRENDS: THICKER THE BETTER

Isn’t it crazy how much better you feel after getting your eyebrows done? I feel like it makes the biggest change on my face. It makes me feel so well kept! It’s the WORST when the eyebrow lady messes up. I guess I’m pretty anal about my eyebrows. I tell the lady ten times before she starts exactly how I want them done, and I warn her ahead of time that I will freak out if they become too thin, short, or lose their shape. I know hair grows back, and it shouldn’t be a big deal, but if I’m paying anywhere from 6-20 dollars to get my eyebrows done, I want them done right! I’ve been noticing a recent trend with celebs these days of having thicker than usual eyebrows. I was watching American Idol the other night and noticed it on Jennifer Lopez, and I have to say that I LOVE it! Here are some celebs that have moved towards the thicker brow look: 

MEGAN FOX

         

LAUREN CONRAD

           

JENNIFER ANISTON

           

OLSEN TWINS

           

THE ART OF THREADING: I have to admit that I wasn’t always a fan of thick eyebrows. I remember the first time I got my eyebrows done was with my mom. She took me to the salon to get my eyebrows threaded. Threading is a hair removal technique that originated in India. I have found it to be the best way to get the PERFECT arch and add definition to your brows. For those of you who pluck or wax, I recommend trying threading out. I guarantee you will love the shape it gives you. Unlike plucking, the hairs don’t grow back thicker and unlike waxing, you don’t accidentally remove parts of the brow you didn’t want touched. I remember hating my mom for not letting me get my eyebrows thinner (this is when thin everything was in…I remember getting my hair thinned too…BIG mistake!), but she kept saying that  I would thank her when I was older. She said that she regretted getting hers thinner because it’s hard to get the original shape back once you mess with it. Lesson learned: Moms are ALWAYS right (how do they do it?).

BEAUTY OF THE WEEK: RIHANNA

             

Rihanna has had an amazing few months with the release of her album Loud. She’s been performing everywhere from the CMAs to American Idol. Rihanna made history this week for “the shortest span between a solo artist’s first and 10th No. 1s in the chart’s 52-year history.” She officially has 10 No.1 hits on Billboard!

Beyond breaking records, Rihanna’s fierce sense of fashion has made her into one of the world’s top fashion icons. She continuously reinvents herself year after year and always dares to do the unexpected. My favorite aspect of Rihanna is that she always pushes the limit and goes outside of the Hollywood norms. You can tell that Rihanna doesn’t care if people think her makeup is too crazy or her outfit isn’t ‘in’ because she knows that beauty is about being yourself. Rihanna ALWAYS looks stunning whether she has black, blonde, or red hair (I mean who would have thought she’d go red?!). You have to truly have stunning facial features to pull off some of the hairdos that she does. I love that every time she makes a public appearance she tries something new with her makeup (I feel like she would even look good bald with how great her makeup always is!). If there is one makeup tip I’ve learned from Rihanna it’s to explore different lip colors. She always pairs fun shadows with bright lipsticks! I would die to meet Rihanna’s glam squad and ask them how they always make her skin look SO flawless and radiant. Because of her confidence, talent, and demeanor, Rihanna is this weeks beauty of the week!

Check out Rihanna talking about being the fashion icon she is on the cover of Vogue. She talks about “taking a risk” and the “thrill” of fashion. I think she looks breathtakingly beautiful!
