DIY Eyebrow Tint

 

Ya’ll have been waiting all week and I’m finally sharing my at home eyebrow tinting routine. My mom actually told me about this trick last year and its probably been my favorite DIY beauty hack yet. I think she read about it in a magazine, but regardless, it’s pretty easy, fool proof and inexpensive. I just tinted my brows about a week ago so they’re still in pretty good shape, but next time I’m really due, I’ll share a before and after picture on instagram!

The secret to tinting is to use a Just For Men Mustache and Beard coloring kit. You can find it at any drug or grocery store. The kits come in several different colors so choose which one closely matches the root color of your hair. I use Light Brown. Before I begin I make sure my face is clean and I don’t have any makeup on my eyes.

To start, squeeze equal parts Color Base and Color Developer {about the size of a dime- it goes a long way} and mix together. Next, to prevent unwanted staining around your brows, outline them with Vaseline {I use a Q-Tip}. Once both brows are outlined use the brush tool that comes with the kit or an old brow brush to apply the color to your brows. I apply the color in both directions of my hair growth to make sure I’m getting an even tint. Let the color stand for five minutes on your brows then remove with a damp cotton ball. The longer you let the color stand on your brows, the darker they will be. If you’re nervous about leaving it on too long {like I was the first time} you can wipe them off after 2-3 minutes. If your brows aren’t as dark as you’d like, apply the color again and leave on for another few minutes. That’s it! 

It’s such an easy process, doesn’t take forever and lasts about 2-3 weeks depending on how often you’re washing your face. If for some reason the tint gets outside your brow line you can use lemon juice to remove the unwanted color.

Valentines Day

 

Top: Leith {similar} / Bottoms: Madewell / Heels: Louise et Cie {similar} / Bow: Lola & Leopold / Bag: O Bag

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you’re all having the LOVEliest day ever! I’m sharing a look I wore to brunch over the weekend, but my favorite part about the whole thing is this bow! It’s from an Etsy shop called Lola & Leopold, and the creators, sisters Christina and Michele,  can make you any bow in pretty much any color! I went with a blush pink for Valentine’s, but can’t wait to order some brighter colors for spring and summer. I also love that these bows are handmade and support small businesses. Not to mention I went to high school with these girls and I’m so excited for their little shop to take off! They’re offering 10% off your order for Valentine’s Day only. Use code BOWS10.

Im also obsessed with my O Bag. You might have seen it in a few of my instagrams and while they’re not huge in the US, they’re all the rage in Europe. I saw them when we were in Italy a few years ago and my plan was to purchase one on our next trip but my brother surprised me over Christmas with one and I LOVE it! The main body of the bag is made out a foam rubber so its super durable and easy to clean. Also, every part of the bag can be customized. Mines a little more simple with a navy bottom and real leather handles in the shorter length, but they can seriously get out of control. You can check out their US site here, but if you’re in the Boston or Miami area stop by one of their stores!

Home Tour: Part 2

 

Happy Monday and welcome to part two of our home tour! All the bedrooms in our home are located on the second floor along with two full baths and our laundry room. It didn’t even cross my mind to have the master bedroom on the main floor {as some of the other homes in our area do} but since having Henry, we absolutely love that were just right down the hall from him. I also love that both full bathrooms have a double vanity. As were in the process of looking for a new home now, I just can’t believe how many have single vanities and its kind of become my pet peeve! If you want to see more of Henry’s Nursery you can check out this post. As before, I’ve tried to link all items by room but if theres something you see thats not linked, just email!

Home Tour: Part 1

 

Happy Friday y’all! The weekend is finally here and the Olympic Opening Ceremonies are tonight! Can you tell I’m excited about them? If you’ve been following my stories on instagram you probably know that we’re getting ready to move. My husband was accepted to a Navy residency program back in Pensacola and while we love our house and the people we’ve met in North Carolina, we’re really looking forward to being back in Florida and with our “framily”. If you remember, we moved to NC from Pensacola and made some really great friends who have come to feel like family to us. We’re excited about what this next chapter is going to bring and what God has in store for us!

In the mean time, we just put our home on the market! One plus about selling your home is getting the professional photos and the fact that its basically always clean {because it has to be!} Since we have the great pictures I thought I’d share an updated home tour in two parts. Today is all about the down stairs and on Monday I’ll give you a peak into the second floor. I’ve linked everything I could below, but if theres anything you have a question about you can send me an email.  Photos by Rachel Carter

Daily Makeup Routine

 

Let me just say, I’m NOT a beauty blogger. My knowledge of makeup is probably laughable, but my practice is pretty realistic and hopefully a relatable one. I don’t know all the techniques or brush names and I’m not putting fake eyelashes on every day, but this is what works for me and I hope maybe it’ll work for you too! I’ve never spent a lot of time putting on makeup and love a natural look that I wear around the house or our to meet girlfriends. My whole routine takes maybe 5-10 minutes and I love that about it! Over the years I’ve found a handful of products that work for me and they’re a mix of drugstore and department store brands. I’ll share them all with you throughout the post and how I use them but if you just want to shop my products, I’ve linked them all at the bottom!

Before I apply any makeup I always put on Oil Of Olay face lotion, I use the sensitive skin formula and it also has SPF 15 in it. I feel like this helps my makeup set and last throughout the day. Once the lotion has absorbed I add this Olehenriksen brightening eye cream to my under eye. I think it makes me look a little more awake and brightens things up {it also kind of smells like maple syrup at first but I can’t decide if thats a bad thing?}. My favorite concealer is the Airbrush Concealer from Clinique in medium and I always apply it under my eyes, around my nose and any other problem areas or breakouts I might have. I love it because it doesn’t clog my pores and I can hardly tell that Im wearing it.

I rub the concealer in with my finger {told you I wasn’t fancy} then I apply Physicians Formula Bronzer to my whole face. I’ve never been a fan of actual foundation so I guess this is my version. Its made up of a bunch of different colors that all blend in on your brush when you apply it and it also comes in different shades. I start with my cheeks then work around to my forehead and chin. I usually add a little Lancome Star Bronzer in Solaire to my cheeks for a little color but I also use this NARS blush in Orgasm thats a little more pink. 

Foy my eyes I use Revlon Illuminance Creme in Skin Lights. Each one comes with four different colors and there’s five different pallets to chose from. I apply it using an eyeshadow brush but honestly, I used my finger for years and you can’t tell the difference. Remember that bronzer I use… well I also use it in the crease of my eyes and under my brows. Since the bronzer is made up of different colors, I choose one of the darker tones for the crease and the lighter tone for under my brows also applying with a thinner eyeshadow brush. Next I use an eyelash curler and apply mascara to my lashes. I normally use Maybelline Full n’ Soft but also have this Bobby Brown Eye Opening Mascara that I use when going out or wanting to have really full and thick looking lashes- Niki from Andi’s List told me about it!

Finally, I add a tinted lip balm or chapstick to give some life to my lips and thats it! 

Ps. Im guilty of not washing my face every night {or ever really…} but I do use these Simple Face Wipes. They don’t have any harsh chemicals and take makeup off really well {even water proof mascara!} I use the cleansing ones {it also comes in an exfoliating, oil balancing, radiant, and micellar face wipe too} Also, my brush set is from Nordstrom. I couldn’t find a link, but they sell them in their makeup department. I also have these from Sephora that also work great. 

Hope y’all enjoyed this post, it’s defiantly a first for me, so I’d love any feedback you have or tips on skin care or products that you love!
