Hello Loves:
If you haven’t shopped shein.com you are missing a great treat. I found this store last year, bookmarked it and forgot about it until I needed to find a LBD. The prices on this site will make your heart scream “YASSS” and keep your wallet full. I will be placing an order with them this week and I will be sure to come back and do a review. Sometimes as we all know lower prices can mean low quality but I’ve watched numerous reviews from You Tubers that shop their site regularly and love them. If this experience goes well then I will be a Shein Regular.
Have you shopped at shein.com? If so, please let me know how your experience was.

My 4-Step Brow Routine Tutorial From Start To Finish

The Brows Have It

 

Hello Beauties:

I’ve had a few people ask me how I do my brows so I thought it would be great to share my routine with you. I am in no way an expert on brows but practice does make perfect so I can see improvement in my skill as time goes along. It really quite simple and the key to a good brow is to FOLLOW YOUR NATURAL BROW! I can’t stress that enough and its sad to see when women try to draw the perfect brow and end up looking like a clown face. If the front of your brows aren’t square then don’t try to make them square. I have irregular brows meaning one brow is perfectly square in the front and the other has more of a rounded edge. In this case I do make my other brow square so they match, but if this isn’t you, then don’t try to create one.

Products Used

Step One:

brows1editedI like to put brow gel on my brows before filling them in. It makes the application of the brow whiz easier and precise.

Step Two:

brows2editedI begin to outline the top and bottom of my brow following the natural growth pattern. If your brows do not extend out far enough you can draw the lines out farther.

Step Three

brows4editedThis is how my brows look when I’m done outlining and filling in the sparse hairs. The trick is to not be heavy-handed just lightly fill in the area where the hair is thin.

Step Four

browseditedI take the duo brush and concealer and carefully outline underneath and on top of the brows to blend in the concealer so that it doesn’t show. This step cannot be omitted because this is where you define the brows and give it a neat clean look.

Step Five

** The products I used are my personally preferences and I am not endorsing them nor am I receiving any compensation for using them**

The finished look. Some days your brows will look better than others because you are human and unless you are a robot you don’t do things exactly the same way every day. I hope this was helpful to you. Thanks for stopping by and please keep coming back and leave a comment so that we can get to know each other.

Razor vs. Epilator: Which Is The Best Option For You?

Hello Lovelies:

With summer in full effect chances are you’ve moved those sleeveless tops to the forefront of your daily wardrobe essentials. Sleeveless tops mean paying closer attention to underarm hair. The question is not whether you are a shaver but which product should you use to get the job done? Up for comparison are your average razor and an epilator! For the sake of this post, I will review the product that I have the most experience with:

emoji epilator

The Emoji Optima

An epilator is an electrical device used to remove hair by grasping multiple hairs simultaneously and pulling them out from the root. Similar to waxing except it doesn’t remove cells from the epidermis.

The benefits of using an epilator

  • provides lasting smoothness that can last up to 4 weeks. Removing hair from the root means the hair takes longer to grow back and it grows back softer and finer than before.
  • great for sensitive skin so if you normally see bumps after shaving with razors, an epilator will prevent this problem.
  • hair grows back less noticeable because when the hair follicle regrows the tip is narrower and becomes softer and finer.
  • if you have a low pain tolerance and flinch when receiving waxing services, you can use the epilator in the shower or bath to soften the skin making it less painful. There are also pre-epilation wipes on the market that will soothe the skin after using.
  • more cost efficient than razors because you won’t need to shave as much saving money in the long run.
  • hair grows back lighter which is really beneficial for women of color that normally have dark underarms.

Word of caution

As with anything worth having or using they all come with a tradeoff. Although the epilator will save you time and money in the long run it can be a little painful on the first go and will take getting use to before you become a pro to the pain. Remember the hairs are being pulled out from the root! You also may experience some redness and slight swelling the first time but this will go away after an hour or two.

My choice

The epilator hands down. I will probably never go back to a razor to shave my underarms. I still use a razor on my legs and other parts, but never a razor on my underarms. I get the smoothest all round best shave and I am so used to it now that I don’t feel any pain. There are numerous epilators on the market so chose the one that best fits your needs. I’ve had my epilator for over 3 years and I think that my model is discontinued on the Emoji site but I’m sure you could grab one on Ebay or Amazon. If you want to see what other epilators Emoji sells click here.

Do you use an epilator?
