Sorry for the selfie! This picture was taken right after I shot this Brow Tutorial which happened to be right after I airbrushed myself with FakeBake. (Hence the little makeup I have on) But I do love this look. It’s super simple! I just put some powder foundation lightly on my face so I wouldn’t interfere with my new glow, added a tiny bit of blush, some mascara, lip balm, and BROWS! I love this new trend. I never knew how much of a difference brows make, but obviously they do! 
I’m also obsessed with my new lip balm I’m carrying. Pictured is Strawberry Cream, but I also have Dragon Fruit which is a hot pink. They are basically like chap stick and lipstick in one!!!
Below I’ve added a brow tutorial for sculpting your brows. I’ve had a special request for this one. There is a lot of different ways to do it, the one below is with a brow balm. If you are using a pencil it’s basically done the same. And if you ever feel like you look like Bert and Ernie just take a brow brush (these look like a mascara wand without mascara on them) and use that to brush your brows. The product will spread out and some will come off on the brush, allowing a lighter look.
I hope everyone has a great start to their weekend.
Thanks for reading!

While it’s freezing, snowing, icing, all things crazy weather in Texas outside right now. I’m trying a new spray tan to fake summer. 
I was really impressed with this product. I usually feel streaky, orange, and stinky. This can is great because you can hold it upside down (like to get the backs of your legs) and it still sprays continuously. I feel like this is perfect right now if you are pasty white from winter, since the color isn’t sooo dramatic. But I only did 2 coats. I bet you can do more to get a darker tan. And my husband never told me I was stinky so I guess it wasn’t that bad haha! I just made sure to really exfoliate with a sugar scrub like this or thiscompletely dried myself, and then sprayed. I also let the tan completely dry before putting on my loose pajamas. 
Let me know if you have tried anything and absolutely loved it! I’m always looking for a good sunless tan!
Stay warm and thanks for reading!

Drip Dry

Drip Dry
 

So I love for my nails to be painted but lets be real, I hate waiting for them to dry. Well… I don’t wait for them to dry. I’m always painting them and then trying to do things around the house right after and always, ALWAYS mess them up. There’s nothing worse than spending 30+ minutes working on your cuticles, filing, then even longer trying to polish them and then bam! messing them up.
 If I don’t paint them I usually do gels or the “dipped powder” but they do both tend to tear my nails up. I’m also a hair stylist so with my hands in the water and using them all day to braid color hair my nails are always chipping. So that’s kind of a waste of money for me to get them done and then right after they chip.
So when I was in Sally’s last week and found this beauty O.P.I. drip dry . I was really impressed! You just paint your nails like normal and let that polish dry for 1 minute. Then you put two drops of drip dry on each nail, wait 5 minutes and wah-la! They are dry! Just make sure the drops cover your whole nail. I will be using this every time I do my own nails now. 
Excuse our boy bedspread in these pictures. All of our wedding stuff is in storage for our new house and I can’t wait to reopen all of it!
