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:

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?).

RED LIPS-- IS IT FOR YOU?

I know everyone sees all the celebs wearing the cherry red lipstick and wants to try it out but scared to because it is SO bold. I personally think it’s a great look! It’s different, fun, and daring. I feel like red lips are all about confidence. If you believe you look good in it, everyone else will too. That being said, BOYS HATE IT! I don’t know if its too different for them or they just don’t understand fashion, but I have yet to meet a guy who actually thinks red lips looks good on anyone that isn’t on a runway. My two personal favorite red lips are below: 

Personal Favorite 1: YSL Rouge Pur Couture

                                               YSL Rouge Pur Couture

Personal Favorite 2: Bobbi Brown Vixen Red

                                                                  Bobbi Brown Vixen Red

My advice is that if you are doing red lips for a date or before dinner/ drinks, carry the lipstick with you throughout the night! Although these shades are HIGHLY pigmented (when I say highly, I mean HIGHLY), it’s never a good look when your lip color fades. The purpose of red lips is to be BOLD, so to maintain that look throughout the night, make sure to throw your lipstick in your clutch. Below are some of my favorite celebrities rocking cherry red lips:

                             Cameron DiazMegan Fox

                             Gwen StefaniAnn Hathaway

                             Lauren ConradRihanna

                             Kim KardashianAngelina Jolie

 Least Favorite: Kim Kardashian

I think the best look on her is nude lips, but it’s always fun to change it up every once in awhile!

 Most favorite: Rihanna

That girl can pull off ANY look, but because she has amazing plump lips, this red really works on her. 

Are you daring enough to wear red lips?
