Garance Dore and I are on the same wavelength.

I’m pretty sure my life changed after I got my eyebrows professionally waxed during my sophomore year of high school- my face instantly looked more put-together and sophisticated. Since then, I’ve been pretty obsessed with my eyebrows. I think they’re too light for my face, not full enough (Ali Michael I envy you) and, as of Sunday, not symmetrical. To be fair, I think I’m the only one who thinks that, but it’s irrelevant, everyone is BLIND!
L-R: Maybelline, Wet ‘n’ Wild, Sonia Kashuk
So now, I’m on the hunt for new brow products- specifically wax, to make them seem, you know, even. Now, I’m using a Revlon Colorstay pencil, which works well but I need something more! I liked Benefit’s Brow-Zing, but I’m in between Medium and Dark which is an issue. After perusing MakeupAlley I’ve rounded it down to three: Sonia Kashuk Perfect Arch Brow Kit, Maybelline Ultra-Brow Brush-on Color and Wet ‘n’ Wild Ultimate Brow Kit. Basically, whichever one I find first at CVS will be the one I buy- let’s hope next time I write my eyebrows will be (mostly) symmetrical!
Damn, I love this video. Kate Nash has been a favorite of mine ever since Made of Bricks in 07. Her second album, My Best Friend Is You is no less charming, and my most-loved songs from it is “Do Wah Doo.” Not only is it catchy as hell, but everyone can relate to it. I mean, how many times have you ever looked at a guy and thought “Why is he into her?” As mentioned before, the video is adorable and retro (in the best sense,) just like Nash herself.
Beauty-wise, I love the pastel pink lip paired with a bold, shiny eyeliner. My picks? NARS lipstick in Roman Holiday, Niagara or Dolce Vita or MAC’s Costa Chic. For the eyes, your favorite liquid liner (I personally like Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner) and a nice, glittery one layered on top like Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Spandex. Kate’s lovely crooning, unfortunately, cannot be bought- but you can try her album, available on iTunes/whatever download software you use!
