I’m sure you watched the MTV Movie Awards last night BUT did you notice the amazing spring trends amongst all the glitz and glamour? My faves were J.LO (look at that GLOW) and Cara D (BROWS MUCH?). My imagined “Get the Look” picks for how they achieved these gorge styles are below:
J.LO – all about bronzey glow (with Smashbox’s Trio Eyeshadow and Halo Highlighting Wand and Bronze Lights) and a STRONG middle part with sleek, frizz free hair (get it with Conair’s Argan Oil Brush)
Cara D. – Strong, strong brows and a heavy, smokey eye with pinned back pony! Get it with Conair’s Perfect Pony, Scunci Bobby’s and Smashbox Brow Tech and Full Exposure to Go!
AND tips and tricks from brow guru Umbreen Sheikh of Wink Brow Bar to help you find the perfect brow for, YOU! Not every shape looks good on every face. If you have a strong brow, own it - If not, FAKE it till you MAKE it!
- First start out with a cleaning around the edges. Never pull hairs out above the brow bone, leave that to a professional. If you don’t know how to shape them yourself, go to a local brow bar to shape them and then just follow the outline.
- I recommend going to a threading bar because threading is extremely accurate, they can pull one hair at a time (which really can make a difference when it comes to shaping) plus it helps to stimulate brow growth, if you over-tweezed
- FILL IN, FILL IN, FILL IN! With or without brows? Make them strong or STRONGER using a brow fill in, OR brow tint. I prefer a brow powder and wax to look more natural and not as harsh.
Make sure that you dab colored powder (one shade lighter than your brow) with a brush and go over the natural shape (or ENHANCE for you thin-browed ladies) of the brow and tail of your brow, then brush out with a mascara wand or brow comb. SET with wax! This will also train your brows to go in that exact direction so you don’t have those awkward brow cowlicks.

My daughter, Myelie chose this darling dress, and she rocks it! (She added her own sweater and bag to complete the look.)
The Obey Nomad Color Block Print Dress is a light pink jersey knit bodice pairs artfully with a brown and ivory Southwest print skirt. Braided brown vegan leather belt is fully adjustable (Myelie is not wearing the belt in this photo) and tops a paper bag waistline. Unlined; bodice is SHEER.
Myelie has great taste! To purchase this dress click here.
My oldest daughter, Kendallyn (who is not pictured) was looking at LuLus.com shoes, and she selected these very hip booties.
Of course, at the time I wanted to write this blog posting, Kendallyn was not available to be photographed modeling these for me, so I must settle on a picture of these boots alone, and not with a pretty girl in them. These boots are called The Diva Lounge Starcy 40 Chestnut Suede Convertible Moccasin Boots
See how adorable they are? The Diva Lounge Starcy 40 Chestnut Suede Convertible Moccasin Boots are a cross-cultural revolution! Rich brown vegan suede upper has puckered moccasin stitching along the rounded toe, and the mid-calf shaft can be folded down to reveal a multicolored Guatemalan print lining. Lace-up panel has matching shoestrings. 8.5" shaft (when unfolded) plus 1/2" rubber heel. Lightly cushioned insole.
Kendallyn pairs her boots with skinny jeans or a cute skirt. She reports that the boots are very comfortable, and feel like slippers, so she wears them almost every day, and they add flare to any outfit.
A must have for EVERY season! To purchase, click here.
