I consider lash shaping to be one of the necessary beauty basics for all women. No matter your aesthetic, makeup ideology, or day-to-day lash wardrobe (be it mascara, various falsies, or extensions) this procedure will add tremendous value. When combined with lash tinting, it’ll save time for minimalists while supporting makeup routines of maximalists.

In 2011, I gave up on shaving forever! From my first underarm wax and Brazilian, my life was changed. But a year into my waxing journey, my favorite esthetician moved and I was faced with a dilemma. I was to either find a new esthetician or learn to do the waxing myself. Guess which option I picked!

Right now, I’m in a good place with my various beauty and femininity efforts. I’m pleased with the efficacy of my skincare products. My makeup looks are coming together seamlessly. My hair is loving the current routine and I’m having consistently great head to toe looks. I’m in a great rhythm with my physical fitness and mental health pursuits, and all of these efforts are paying off emotionally and visually. However. I know it’s just a matter of time before I get bored with these results, or my schedule picks up and I need sleep more than perfection. They say beauty is pain and while my chemical peels and DIY waxing definitely attest to that truth, I think beauty is commitment. How do you create the continual motivation to do these things? Where do you seek out inspiration, not for the execution of your own style and beauty, but to…

The ways in which we ask the question, “Am I beautiful?” vary exponentially from one day to the next. The ask isn’t always clear to those who love us. We need to be told “yes” in quite a few different ways not because we’re thick headed but because that’s our biggest, most pivotal question. Somehow, many of us are quite good at hearing, “No,” even though our friends, our parents, our men, and our Creator, are resoundingly telling us, “Yes.”
