If you've seen my blog before you know that I am more than a just a little obsessed, with Lastics Shave Soap.

 2. A brow pencil
  • I don't spend big money on this, the one I'm using for this video is from Daiso (it's $1.50 and I love it!)
 3. A brow powder

  •  I am using Senna's brow palette because I want to use 2-3 colors so it looks natural and not one dimensional
 4. A spooly or a toothbrush
  • to brush them into place and      

5. Here's the kicker, instead of brow gel, I use my Shave Soap from Lastics
  •  it holds them in place without feeling crunchy (plus it smells ahhhhmazing!)

6. A brow highlighter  (optional)

How To-

 First brush your brows up,with your toothbrush or spooly.
 Use the brow pencil to fill in any gaps, using quick little strokes to mimic the hairs.
Then go over the pencil using your brow powder.

Then brush your brows downward using the spooly or toothbrush, and do the same process for the top of your brows.

You want to remember to use a light hand on the beginning of your brows, the concentration of  product should be in the arch, which will bring the eye upward, otherwise it just looks unnatural &  heavy.(or in my case sinister-haha)
Once you're all filled in, take your spooly or toothbrush, slightly dampen it, and run it over the shave soap until you pick up enough product and brush your brows into place.
In about a minute, when this dries, you will have natural looking brows that stay in place all day!

And there you have it- My five minute brow routine!
Sounds a little crazy but it works.
Try it!

The probability of love at first sight....

or how a shaving soap changed themy world.... I may have a problem balancing the girlie girl in me, with the cynical New Yorker? I don't usually think of myself as a hopeless romantic, but lately I equate everything to relationships, even blogging about products. As much as I'd like to be that wham bam thank you ma'am reviewer... you know, the one that gets the product and says "OK you'll have final copy in 3 days", I just can't. I need to fall in love with it, even if only for the moment, and for that I need to get to know you better.  Seriously, can you really get to know a anything in such a short time, enough to feel confident telling all your friends about it ?  Because that's what you are, you're my friends. 
And friends can smell BS a mile away.  So I'm not going to candy coat it, if I love it, I'll scream it from the rooftops, and if I don't....well.

The Crazy (but true) Things We Do in The Name of Beauty

When I was 14 years old, I had a really beautiful best friend.
I won't say she was evil, but I will say, adolescence is difficult, and friends sometimes do shitty things to each other ...
You get the picture?

 As for my friend? (Let's call her "Suzie".)
She had the longest lashes I had ever seen!      

 I had tried everything to get mine to look as long as hers; Gobs of mascara separated with a safety pin...Baby powder under my mascaraOlive oil every night Nothing worked, finally, I asked her...

"Suze, how can I get my lashes to look like yours, all long and beautiful? She said, Do you really wanna know?
Yes, whatever it is, I'll do it, just name, it I said.
Cut them, she said.
Cut them???
Yup, she said
How short do I cut them?
That depends,... How long do you want them? Her eyebrows raised, The shorter you cut them, the longer they'll grow" she told me.
