Perfect Brows, Makeup for Glasses + a Sigma Brushes Giveaway! (Giveaway Closed)

There’s always something new to learn about how to do makeup.  Every time I pick up a new tip, I wonder how I got by so long without it!  Eyebrow shaping is one of those things.  I remember going to get my makeup done when I was in my teens and the artist asked me if I had ever “done my eyebrows.”  I had no idea what she was talking about so I said no!  She then showed me how to shape my brows and WHAT a difference it made.  Ever since then, it’s part of my weekly beauty routine.  It really freshens up your entire face while making you look more awake - and who doesn’t want that?

Brow shaping ties right in with today’s tutorial: how to do makeup if you wear glasses.  I’m not a glasses wearer, but I LOVE the glasses look so I started experimenting with “glasses makeup”.  I noticed that glasses seem to dull down eye makeup significantly between harsh glares and dusty/smudged lenses, yet they draw attention to the upper half of your face - so it’s important to have your brows and eyes looking tidy and defined!

Kentucky Charms & Horse Farms

My husband and I moved to Kentucky about 2 years ago. We came from a town out on Long Island, NY called Copiague, and before that I lived my whole life in northeastern New Jersey. To say we experienced culture shock when we moved out here would be a massive understatement.  I wasn’t used to the pace.  Things are slower here.  Ultimately in a really good way, but it definitely took some adjusting.  People stop and talk to you.  When there’s a short line at Walmart, it still may take a while because the friendly cashier has to have a chat with just about every customer.  When you’re out and about, it’s not uncommon to get a nod and a wave from perfect strangers.

I have a tendency towards a ‘hustle and bustle’ mindset.  (I wonder where I got that from? Ha!)  Even now as the weather is cooling, I find myself scribbling out long to-do lists.  I have this need to keep busy at all times.  Knowing this about myself, I’ve been making an effort to stop and look around.  Creation is beautiful, people are beautiful, and I want to experience moments every day where I truly realize how blessed I am. Getting out for a walk in the middle of a work day is one of those things that takes some effort at first, but eventually I don’t want to return home.
