[Mascara Routine] Long Lashes featuring Essence mascaras!

Hello everybody! :-)

I know what you're thinking - yet another routine... It's getting old! But I really wanted to share this and I promise there will be different posts coming up in the near future :-)

I get a lot of questions about my lashes (online and in real life) - whether they're real or fake, and what I use to get them to look like this. So I decided to dedicate a blog post to the topic!

Let's get started :-)

[Eyebrow Routine] Groomed but natural-looking brows!

Hello everyone! :-)

Wooo, my first real post! *does happy dance* Nevermind. Let's start with today's topic!

Brows (aside from contouring -- uh sorry, I meant strobing, of course! Contouring is sooo 2014) are ZE hottest thing on Instagram right now and have been for quite a while. Of course, I've tried the super-defined ultra fierce Sharpie brows that look totally fetch on pretty much everyone. Except me. When I did it, I looked like I'd drawn big black bars on my forehead. Definitely not cute. They made me look like a man, the products I tried were way too dark for my pale skin (even though I have very dark hair). I was frustrated and abandoned the field. I caked my face, smoked my shadows, winged my liner but my brows stayed naked, feeling lonely and forgotten... And out of place.

A few weeks ago, I decided that I had neglected my poor eyebrows for too long and decided to give the whole "brows on fleek" thing another shot. This time, I picked a lighter color to draw on fill in my little babies, and BOOM -- it worked!
