NEW BEAUTY PRODUCTS – THE GOOD, THE BAD, …

The best part about a blogger event is the goodie bag – that’s where I find all the latest and greatest new things to try and learn about. Sometimes I even get things sent to me in the mail to try – what a treat! In one of these fun bundles of joy I opened recently, I stumbled across a new beauty product so disturbing that I had to try it and write about it  – that’s the WTF?! of this post. I’ve also tried a few new products that I absolutely loved (‘the good’) and one that was rather disappointing (the bad). Let’s talk about them today!

BELLE’S BEAUTY TIPS: HOW TO GROOM …

Eyebrows are an element of beauty that has eluded me forever. I’d get them waxed and would endlessly pluck them because that was what you did. But I’d never really paid attention to the most important parts of how to groom your eyebrows – the right placement of arches, where the brows should start and stop, and the proper fullness to best complement my face. Instead, I had a pair of uneven, incredibly thin brows that did nothing good for my features. They were an afterthought, rather than the visual guide you should look for to frame your facial features. Unacceptable! I recently set out to remedy this situation and today I’m sharing what is finally working well for me. In short, doing less gives you 100% more. Read on!
