Currently Loving Bold Buffed Brows & Naked Lids/Lashes
It’s friday (we made it)!
This week has been especially action-packed, and I must confess – I’m looking forward to something of a lock-in this weekend with my man and pups. I want to draw and drink obsessive amounts of tea, buy flowers at the market, sleep in, listen to jazz and laugh. I’m starting to truly understand the down time need that moulds great ideas and boosts productivity. Ironically, I’ve never felt more satisfied with the work I’m doing, even though it may all be happening at snail speed. There comes a point when you really just have to understand that most of the world we live in is complete make believe. Consequences can be twisted, happiness and clarity of mind repurposed regardless of your situation, and freedom found. Starving artists have it right in so many ways… life is meant to be enjoyed and explored. Slowed down. While money enables many things, it is too much of a focus in our everyday thinking. If you can pay your mortgage, be healthy, and live minimally/happily – all else can go to hell.

Looking to make the bare eye, big brow look your own (without having it wash you out due to a busy lifestyle)? Opt for barely there eyeliner in the natural color of your lashes, pairing it with primers and clear gels/glosses to add umph and impact. I’ve been using (and loving) Annabelle’s Skinny Brow Liner in Universal Dark, am pretty intrigued by MAC’s Brow Finisher, and love using Vaseline and lip balm sticks as a DIY version of traditional gloss (they make for a sleek eyeshadow alternative).
