What makes you feel pretty?

February 5, 2013

For me, I always feel prettiest when my eyebrows are tweezed and my cheeks are rosy. Even if I haven't washed my hair that day, or don't have any other makeup on, those two things always do the trick!

To keep my eyebrows looking their best, I have found it's best to just do them myself. Since moving to Zurich, I have tried many different salons and spas - ones I found myself and others that were recommended by friends - and I haven't been happy with any of the results. At home, I use Tweezerman tweezers. Then, with this amazing angled brush, I do a light application of this shadow (in Coquette) to give them a little more definition. On days when I'm not as rosy as I'd like, I use a super bright pink creme blush on the apples of my cheeks. And, of course, as Audrey Hepburn said, "Happy girls are the prettiest girls," so I always wear a smile. :) 

What makes you feel pretty? Lots of mascara? Shiny lip gloss? Big sunglasses? ;) I would love to hear! xo

  1. Sunglasses! Big sunglasses! I love them and have several different models at home. When I wear them I feel immediately happy and pretty! That's my recipe... :-) Enjoy the snow in Zurich, we do so. Love, Isabelle alias Bella RaKo

    1. I am also a fan of huge sunglasses! They make me feel glamorous like Jackie-O. :) xo

  2. eyeliner :)
    I do (subtle) cat-eye eyeliner every day (well, sometimes I give my eyes a break on weekends) and it really makes me feel like my day is starting and I am ready to go out into the world!
    I feel prettiest when I have gone to a really great, sweaty, yoga class, taken a hot shower, moisturized, and then I put on my eyeliner and my chapstick (and my favorite bra ;) ).

    1. I agree! I always feel really pretty after Bikram Yoga. :) And in my favorite Calvin Klein underwear. Will you please put an eyeliner tutorial on your blog? I would *love* to see the subtle cat-eye technique!!! xo

    2. Oooh that is a good post idea! I will try to do a tutorial but I have been doing it so long I really think it's just practice!
      If nothing else I will post the brands/colors I use because I have tried them all!!
