My favorite brow products & Beyonce!

Hey loves! The long 4 day weekend is coming to an end :( I am not ready for it to be over. It has been like a mini vacation, a GREAT one! I've had so much fun these past few days. Friday afternoon my friend and I hit the road to OKC for the Beyonce concert. We checked into our hotel, ate a delicious dinner at In the Raw, grabbed an ice cream cone and headed over to the concert. We were standing on the floor and not to far from the stage. It was such an amazing concert! I just love watching her dance, she dances non stop throughout the entire show. I have been to a lot of concerts, this one tops my list. Justin Timberlake is coming up in November though, so we'll see if she stays on top ;) Here are a couple pics from the night.

Flying above us, I wasn't the only one taking a pic!

The morning after the concert we got up and around and went to do a little damage at the outlet mall. Not too much really, but we got a few nice things :) We were both pretty tired due to being out late and not really sleeping. You're supposed to sleep great at a nice, plush,  expensive hotel right? Not us, the place was full of rowdy, loud Beyonce fans who didn't see anything wrong with yelling and slamming doors all throughout the night. Wow, I'm old. 

Ok, onto my favorite brow products. I didn't really get into doing anything to my brows until about a year or 2 ago. My mom always got on me about 2 things. My lack of filling in my brows and lack of wearing lipstick. "You just don't look complete without it!" she would say. Well, as always, momma is right. It just took me a little while to listen when it came to these 2 subjects... So, my #1 fave is this:
Surprise, another $3 e.l.f. product. Yup, another fave of mine. It's not expensive and does a great job. I get mine at Target and there are different shades for you to pick from depending on your hair color. The left side is a colored wax and the right side is a powder. I brush in the powder first, then top it off with some wax to hold it all in place. I usually use this product when I'm a little short on time. Most weekday mornings...

When I have a little extra time to spend on my brows, I LOVE these 2 products:
The Brow Wiz works great to line the top and bottom of your brows to create the brow shape and arch desired and to fill in your brows. I then use the spoolie side to blend out the harsh lines and to comb out my brows. 
The Brow Duality has a shimmer and a matte highlight side. I use the shimmer highlight under my brows to give a little highlight and I use the matte side on the top of my brows to highlight and accentuate the arch. 

On days that I use the Brow Wiz to do my brows I always use a clear brow gel on top to brush them hold them in perfect place all day. Any clear brow gel usually works just fine, I am currently using this one and I really like it.

Moral of the story, listen to your mom and fill in your brows. It really does make a difference!

One more thing before I go. I am obsessed with Starbucks passion fruit shaken ice tea lemonade (it's a mouthful). In the summer I could really drink one everyday, but I hate to spend money everyday on stuff like that. I saw you could buy the Tazo tea at Wal-Mart so I picked some up and right on the side of the box it tells you how much to mix with lemonade and make your own! I tried it today and it's delicious and really tastes just like they make it at Starbucks, but way cheaper and now I have 2 quarts of it in my refrigerator. Below is what I used. If you're a fan of this drink like me, or if you've never had it, try it! So refreshing :)

Thanks for reading,
