No Brows to Full Brows - Current Brow Routine and Favorite Products





Current Brow Routine and Favorite Products - No Brows to Full Brows
Current Brow Routine and Favorite Products - No Brows to Full Brows

I can use seven products and ten steps to fill my brows but to keep me sane (because my brow routine is a must) here's the simplest method I know:

1. Use a brow pencil to draw a guide for how you want your brows to look.

  • My favorite products are from NYX in Expresso (found here), Shu Uemura in Seal Brown (found here), and Anastasia Beverly Hills in Chocolate (found here).

2. Fill in your brows using the same brow pencil or a powder/gel.

  • My favorite powder is from Laura Mercier in Espresso Bean (found here) and my favorite gel is from Anastasia Beverly Hills in Chocolate (found here).

3. Comb it out with a spooley to prevent it from looking too too dark and a bit more natural.

  • My favorite spooley is from Anastasia Beverly Hills (found here).

4. Use a concealer that is slightly lighter than your skin tone to clean out the edges and also to highlight just a little bit.

  • My favorite concealers are from NARS in Creme Brulee (found here) and Maybelline in Medium (found here), and my favorite brush to conceal is from Essence  (only $1.99!!, found here).
I hope you found this post helpful! You, like me, may not be blessed with the most full brows, but its not the end of the world as we have makeup to save us! :D

XOXO,

Daniel Wellington Classic Black Rose Gold: Free Valentine Charm Promotion & 15% Off Coupon

Daniel Wellington Valentine's Day Promotion: Classic Black Rose Gold 36mm and 40mm

As a Valentine's Day gift and also as a surprise congratulations gift for my recent engagement, Daniel Wellington sent me these two Classic Black watches for my fiancé and me to wear (THANK YOU!). I also received these two adorable charms that is currently a part of Valentine's Day promotion. So on today's post, I wanted to share with you Valentine's Day promotion and talk a little bit about these Classic Black watches.

I actually own Daniel Wellington Classic Black in Silver (check out my review here) and I love it, especially since I own a lot of silver accessories. However, I do love rose gold and I find it to add a little bit of a softer touch to the watch, so I am obviously obsessed with this! Just look at how super chic this is, even in rose gold! :) I own Daniel Wellington's Classic Black, Classic and Dapper and I must say that they are all very versatile, and I love how timeless these are and how I can add a little more character by switching straps.

The classic black in rose gold is in 36mm size for women (here) and 40mm for men (here). In the photo below you can see how these two watches differ in size. Obviously I can wear 40mm but my fiancé actually cannot wear the 36mm because the strap is a bit too short for his average sized wrist. So unless you have a super super skinny wrist, I wouldn't recommend any man to venture into the women's range although the other way around could work--just depends on how oversized you want your watch to be. Also these sleek Sheffield straps are just pure perfection and I can't wait to see how Classic Black look with other straps as well (especially St Mawes!).

As a Valentine's Day promotion, Daniel Wellington is giving out these heart charms for free for anyone purchasing a leather strap watch. When I first got these I must admit I was a bit confused as I did not know what to do with these. However instincts kicked in and I managed to figure out how they work, and can I just say...I LOVE THEM! Daniel Wellington please make these more in different shapes please!

Statement Sweater and Pointed Mary Jane Flats

SWEATER: TORY BURCH (SIMILAR) // PANTS: TOPSHOP (SIMILAR) // FLATS: CALVIN KLEIN // BAG: REBECCA MINKOFF (SIMILAR) // LIPSTICK: MAC 

Sometimes I spend hours at Nordstrom Rack to find nothing I like, but sometimes within minutes I walk out with something from my dreams. One thing I scored big time was this Tory Burch Rianna sweater (sold out, but can be viewed here) and although the sizing was way off (it's XL and I wear S-M), there was no way in hell I was going to let it pass. All the embroidered detail was enough for me to immediately grab it as if my life depended on it, but the fact that it was 80% off (?!!!!!)  meant that I would be the biggest fool to let it pass.

I like to wear this with literally everything: pleated long skirts, mini lace skirts, skinny jeans, leggings, pants, you name it. It is also perfect because the oversized fit allows me to wear layers upon layers of light and thing sweaters underneath for extra warmth, making it the perfect sweater to wear during the winter even as an outer. Who knew such statement sweaters could be so versatile?

The weather was surprisingly warm when this photo was taken and I wanted to take out my new red mary-jane flats to spice up the look just a little bit more. And I picked up a very old Rebecca Minkoff bag with rose gold chains and subtle studded details to add just a tad bit of classy vibe to it. 

Although this particular sweater is from previous season and is quite hard to find, here are some other sweaters that are currently in my wishlist and are absolutely uniquely gorgeous *gasps* so if you are interested, check out the following sweaters. (Of all of these I find Rebecca Taylor's sweaters to be so so so crazy beautiful and unique--check out this gorgeous one here and this amazing ruffle mock sweater).







XOXO,

Pink Neutrals OOTD

Pink Neutrals OOTD: Topshop Mom Jeans, Chloe Drew, Adidas Stan Smith
CARDIGAN: GAP // SHOES: ADIDAS // JEANS: TOPSHOP // BAG: CHLOE (SIMILAR) // SWEATER: FOREVER 21 (SIMILAR)




Here's an outfit that I wear on repeat and for many reasons. First, I get to cover my saddlebags with this long sweater cardigan and second, I get to direct the attention away from the thighs to bags and shoes. Lastly, I am wearing pink :P.

It may come as a shock to many but pink is most definitely not my favorite color, but dusty pink, that particular shade demands a whole new level of attention. For this outfit, the very items that I am highlighting are in similar shades of pink. I am wearing Adidas Stan Smith in pink that in these photos may look like a light pink but in real life has a more dusty vibe to it (check out my blogpost here for more details on this pair). Although I can't seem to find it available anymore, I also found this dusty pink + metallic sweater from Forever21, and obviously it didn't break a bank to buy it. Finally my Chloe Drew Bag that my boyfriend gave me as an anniversay gift + birthday gift + christmas gift combined (our anniversary is in March and my birthday is in December...so you get the idea lol) is a very unique salmon pink color that demands a blogpost all on its own.

So what are your thoughts on this outfit? Please share!

XOXO,

HaeMin
