Freckles and Brows

My two favourite accessories! I mean, I'm never without them, they're always right there on my overly large face, but it's time to appreciate the beauty in the simple things.


Freckles

Call me controversial, I know many people are all for a 'flawless' or 'airbrushed' look, but I flipping love freckles!! A couple here and there or a whole gorgeous face full, I think they are just ace. Too many lovely ladies hide them away under an overly thick layer of make up, what's that about?! I mean, sure, enhance your best features and maybe add a smidge of confidence when covering over that persistent pimple, but I think it's about time we're proud of those sun kisses!!


Especially as the season of sunshine and skipping hand in hand down a hazy country lane is upon us (no idea where that came from!), let's crack out the SPF and let our freckles do the talking.

Eyebrows

The Power Brow. With a subtle tweak and cleverly positioned tweeze, you can master the art of a wonderfully sculpted look, opening up your beautiful face and showing it off in all it's glory. Remember the days of overly plucked, almost naked lines? Angular, heavily pencilled and obviously applied? Well thank goodness that is history my friends, as over the years our love of a more fuller, natural shape reigns supreme. There is definitely an art to creating that super scrumptious arch and of course, getting them both to match (I'm currently harbouring a love for my left brow, the other has a bit of catching up to do!), but less tweezing is more in this case. It's more a case of tidying the strays, maintaining the basic shape and helping the fullness along perhaps, with a wee touch of cosmetic assistance. There are ton's of helpful and gorgeous tutorials online, if you're into beauty, and one diamond in particular always giving good brow, is Anna of Vivianna Does Makeup beauty blog.

What have you been up to this weekend? Has it been a hectic one or have you reclined in the garden with a good book? Mine has been a bit of both, but I hope to start the week off in a productive manner, tomorrow morning!

  1. I let my brows 'grow out' for this exact reason - I love a good power brow! Unfortunately mine are more 'weak and weasely' but, hey, I gave it a go! As for freckles - I think they are beautiful, and I've always been jealous of the smatterings I see appear on peoples faces in the summertime!

  3. I love freckles. As someone with tons of them, along with a billion moles, I can safely say they're super great. I also do love a powerful brow. However, I have actually grown a bit of a phobia of eyebrows of late. For some reason, whenever I see painted on ones I get really panicked...like seriously?! It just scares me and not in a vindictive way. They just genuinely frighten me a little. Anyway....enough of the crazy!

    Thanks for your comment on my latest post. Glad you enjoy the goals posts - they're fun to put together.

    1. Hahaha! A faux brow phobia, that could get nasty, considering the Scouse brow trend!! Eeeep, that's a bit too far in the other direction, agreed!!

      Ahh, your freckles make your skin glow! And sometimes they join forces and give the effect of a tan! Win!! Hehehe!

      Looking forward to seeing how you get on with your goals. And if you struggle with the socialising one, you know where to find me! xx

  4. I love freckles on others but I don't like my own :) But I guess you always want what you can't have, right?
