Smile when you talk on the phone, smile when you watch the sun setting, smile when you walk down the street and you’re most likely to brighten up the day of someone else. Win, win.

Take care of yourself
You’ve heard it from literally everyone – that person on TV, that columnist in that magazine, your Mother, your pets probably. Taking care of yourself a must to be as healthy as ever, to look hot as hell and to be the strongest bad ass known to man.

De-clutter
Embrace the minimalistic trend and de-clutter your space, whether that be your wardrobe, your work space, your entire room or your entire house. Like a weight lifted off your shoulders, you’re mind will be free of distractions, letting you get more shit done!

Get out there
Live like you depend on that overused saying: You only live once. Take a step out of your comfort zone and discover new things in the world. Say ‘yes’ to more opportunities and meet as many people as you can because there’s so much on Earth that you’re yet to see.

Eyebrows on FLEEK

People are extremely creative nowadays when it comes to making a statement. Whether it’s with blue lipstick, purple hair, or a big fur coat, the list seriously goes on and I think that it’s seriously AWESOME! But, to be honest, I like to keep things subtle and simple yet still make a statement (if that makes any sense) and what better way to do that than by having a bold, blended, and defined brow?! I am very well aware that there are 473928478923489 posts and videos out there right now about how to create a perfect brow but here is how I achieve the “perfect brow” look. In my opinion, the key to a perfect brow is not only the placement of the product and how well you blend it, but it is also important to know how/where to hold your brush and the amount of pressure that you should be putting on certain areas of the brow. With that being said, here are some simple and easy steps on how to achieve this look.

Products Used:

Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Promade in the shade dark brown, an angled brush, and concealer. You can use whatever you have but this is what I used to achieve this look. Elf’s cream eyeliner in Coffee is a great dupe btw.

NOTE*** Due to the extreme pigmentation in most cream products, please make sure that you wipe off any excess product off your brush before applying it onto your eyebrows. Unless you’re going for the whole “chola look” than… do you boo! 😉

Step 1: Underline the bottom of your eyebrow while holding your brush closer towards the bristles. By doing this, it will help you get a more precise line.

Step 2: While still holding your brush closer towards the bristles, outline the top of your eyebrow. Please make sure that the arch of your brow has a natural curve and not a pointy one.

Step 3: Fill in the end of your brow and work your way in towards the middle then stop. Most of the product should be focused on the end of the brow.

Step 4: Without applying any more product onto your brush, move your hand towards the end of the brush and with a light hand, LIGHTLY do small strokes to fill in the front of the brow.

Step 5: BLEND.

Step 6: (OPTIONAL) Use a little bit of concealer to outline the shape of your eyebrows. This creates a more clean and defined look. Don’t forget to blend out the harsh lines.

And there you have it! The perfect brow 😉 Hopefully these simple easy steps and techniques help you get your eyebrows on fleek as well. As we all know, your eyebrows basically frame your whole entire face and your look can easily be changed just by modifying your eyebrows, so take precaution! Until next time. Stay weird my friends =)

The Grey-lipped Bae

I am being serious when I say that I’ve been yearning for the perfect grey lipstick to get my lips on. This was after I discovered one of the most pretty shades in the world that knocked the living lungs out of me. Every one on Instagram has been wondering what grey lipstick one of our girls had on their picture. So I am proud to announce and please say hello to your new favorite grey lipstick that your guts will be screaming for:

Meltcostmetic- Spacecake!

For example, I love how you are able to apply a plum lipliner and get yourself a vintage purple, greyish lip to achieve a vintage look. Or you can even use a black liner to have a more blanket of the galaxy kind of lip look. Whatever it is you can play with this lipstick for the life of you and it will still look good! You’re welcome. ❤
