There are certain beauty rules we all seem to follow, but then again, sometimesbeauty rules can be broken. And there are beauties who break the rules....and darn it....look good doing it.
Let's talk dark brows + very blonde hair.......
The beauty rules say this stark combination is a major no-no.
Well, tell that to a number of celebrities whose signature look features the two extremes together.
Here is Rita Ora just last evening at the Creators Party presented by Spotify, in Los Angeles.
Yup.....Rita's blackened brows are very noticeable, and yet.....she carries it off with her platinum hair quite beautifully. Plus, the sexy singer also went heavy on the liner + lashes for a glam cat eye. MEOW!
And Rita is not alone.
Check out more famous faces who wear flaxen hair with dark brows:
And the icon herself, Marilyn Monroe.
If you're looking to emphasize your brows, then go with the best in the biz----Anastasia. Her Perfect Brow pencils aren't cheap at $23, but deliver a great result.
We must admit, Miss Queen Bey ALWAYS wears the BEST statement jewelry, and this time the sexy star is draped in stacks of silver necklaces + gems in her new single + accompanying music video, "Formation."
Apparently, lots of folks on social media don't like the lethal combination. Poor Fox TV's Megyn Kelly can't find a break these days.
People took to Twitter last night to poke fun at the blonde newscaster's overly LONG LASHES.
Some television viewers of last evening's Trump-less GOP debate had an issue with Megyn's alleged faux lashes.
Many were distracted....like this funny dork:
Oh, brother. So, you can't be both smart and pretty? How ridiculous. Leave Megyn Kelly alone! Most women on TV DO wear faux lashes for extra definition to eyes. If TV titan Oprah can wear false lashes, then why can't newscaster Megyn Kelly put them on?! Rumor has it that Kim Kardashian once canceled a public event after her makeup artist forgot to bring the faux lashes along for the trip.. LOL... By the way....we are NOT taking political or TV network sides here. We think there's some jealousy going on. Wish we knew the brand Megyn was wearing last evening, but we do not. But...here are some great lash fakes to try on. These are super popular and cost only $4!
ARDELL Natural Lash - Black 120, found here at ULTA.
The beauty of keratin is in its wonderful healing properties.
Keratin is found in your hair, skin, nails and teeth. Our hair strands are made of these protein fibers. And when your keratin composition is depleted or weakened, your hair, skin, nails and teeth, can show the difference.
That is why we have all heard about the importance of getting enough protein in our diets. Without it, there is dullness, split ends, hair breakage, hair loss and other ugly results.
Keratin in shampoos, conditioners + leave-in treatments all NOURISH hair with body-building ingredients that effectively repair damaged locks, protecting against further breakage and adding shine and elasticity to every strand.
Here is a CULT fave to try: it's a 10 miracle leave-in plus keratin 4 oz.
Okay, a bit pricey at $21, a bottle, found at Walgreens + $20 at ULTA, but we did some hunting and found the same ounce bottle for just 12.52 + FREE shipping at Amazon!
Yes...we just purchased a bottle there. We're going to try this.
We have been using a keratin-enriched shampoo--Keratin Smooth by TRESemme for the past 2 weeks and it has helped tremendously.
The ONLY downside to keratin products is the TOO flat appearance it can give. It does a SUPER job coating strands with healthy protein, but can make hair almost too sleek.
However, you can add other volumizers to boost height.
You remember the iconic SILVER Tin Man in the classic "Wizard of Oz" movie?
Well, this incredible beauty product reminds us of the smooth silver essence he symbolized.

How amazing this "Tin Gal" appears wearing the mask. We found her modeling the mud at the GlamGlow website.
This futuristic face mask is NOT cheap. Try $69 a jar!
Lions,tigers and bears....Oh, my!!
We would LOVE to try the GravityMud mask....but the price is keeping us in the pale, so to speak.
WE ADORE this brand of makeup, because it's affordable, a lovely range + variety and quality made products.
