You guys know that I do my very best to keep us all in the loop with what is going on in the beauty realm, right?! Once again, I have some pretty amazing things to share with you...

Visually Spectacular Lashes

These lash finds are the most blinged-out lashes you are yet to see! Japanese designer/artist Miyuki created these avant-garde lashes. She incorporates crystals, charms and lightweight material onto strip lashes to design mesmerizing lash-fantasy looks, like butterflies and peacocks. I am blown away by the creativity and vision, and while these may not be an everyday, go pick your kids up from school look - they are beautiful and imaginative, nonetheless. LOVE it!

Brow Artistry

Brows have been making a comeback for a while now with eyebrow extensions and microblading, but ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the bling brows and the braided brow. I can't make this stuff up! Similar to the aforementioned lashes, bedazzled brows incorporate crystals around the brows - to make a seriously fabulous statement. Simply take eyelash glue, and adhere your crystal of choice in a design around the brow... It's bold and brow-tiful! With the braided brow look, you take an eyebrow pomade and a rounded-tip medium soft brush to create the outline of a braid around your brow - as seen in this video link - and fill in. Again, these brow-forward looks and trends are probably not going to be worn to the grocery store, but I can definitely give props to anyone who is doing it for theatrical purposes, or for just plain fun! I adore the out-of-the-box creations.

Au-Naturale Brow Love

For all the rest of us who may want to just have an au-naturale, defined brow... We can always rely on GladGirl to hook us up with their retractable eyebrow pencils that come in black, dark and medium brown. And, the Eyebrows on Point cream will help you achieve brow nirvana! I hope you have enjoyed discovering these awe-inspiring trends! Would you be daring enough to try these out, or are you more inclined to stick to your brow-beautiful norm?
