Now I know my FOTD's usually look pretty similar but I really enjoy doing FOTD's, especially when I'm using one or two new products that I'd love to tell you about. I'm still really into the minimalist look at the moment, I think its classic, easy, quick and very pretty for a day time look. I won't lie even if I go out at night I don't wear all that much more makeup but I do my eyes a bit darker and throw in some bronzer and highlighter.

Pluck Perfect

I always used to get my eyebrows waxed and now I just pluck them because I learnt how to do it properly and I'm saving a lot more money without using wax. Anyways I have 10 tips for you on how to get perfectly plucked eyebrows.

1. You have to use the right tweezers. They must be sharp and slanted so that they can grip the little hairs. If you don't have the right tweezers its not going to be an easy job.

2. The trick is to pluck your eyebrows after you have showered/bathed. The warm water will help open your pores and soften the hair follicles making it easier for the hair to just slip out.
3. Don't use one of those magnifying glasses. They tend to make it look like there are more hairs which leads to over plucking. Use a normal mirror and step back a few steps to track your progress. Also use a mirror that is surrounded by a lot of light so you can see the hairs.
4. Your eyebrows should begin just to the side of your tear duct (so towards your nose), the arch should start on the outer side of your iris (the coloured bit of your eye) and end 45 degrees from the outer corner of your eye.

5. Create the shape of your eyebrow by drawing it on with a brow pencil and then start plucking hair that is out of the drawing.
6. Don't force your brow shape. If you don't have a high arch you can't make one properly. Work with what you have and, if anything, keep your natural shape but just neaten it up.
7. Put a soothing cream on once you've finished plucking and it'll soothe the burn feeling that you get and the redness on your brows.
8. Brush your eyebrows with a brow brush to see your shape and if you've missed any stray hairs. Fill in sparse spaces with an eyebrow pencil that matches your eyebrow colour- don't worry we all have sparse spaces.
10. If you've overplucked then you can always fill in the spaces with the eyebrow pencil and don't pluck your eyebrows until they have grown back in.

Hope this helped!
Now get plucking :)
