Talk About It: Best Beauty Advice

October 1, 2013

When I was in high school, my best friend Alicia's older sister, Debbie, said to me, "Leave your eyebrows alone." Clearly the thin, upside-down-U shaped brows I'd created (I was a major over-plucker) were not working for me, and Debbie wasn't afraid to tell me.  This was, hands down, the best beauty advice I have ever received. Ever. I still remember Debbie's words every time I give my brows a little maintenance, and I've long gotten over my plucking addiction.

We've all gotten beauty advice that was priceless, perhaps even life changing, at some point, whether it was how to choose the right lip color, which hair products to use in humid climates, or when to *ahem* put down the tweezers. So of all the advice you've been given over the years, what was the best you've ever gotten? I can't wait to see your answers!

  1. The best advice I received was from my mom, she told me don't be afraid to wear bright colors. Whether it was from choosing my lipstick to the clothes I wore. Ever since then, my closet is filled with colors, when I choose my lipstick I tend to look for that bright pink, orange, or red, and I love wearing my bright colored flowers in my hair! 😃

  2. I know I over tweezed back in my goth days and I was going for that 1920s look. I went WAY over board. Should have just bleached them instead. Now they are thin. Do not think they will be thick again. I even waited a year to not pluck and nope they never really filled in. Glad you followed her advice.

    1. Thank God for brow pencils! I have a friend who ended up tattooing some brows in.

  3. Hmmm... I would have to say that the best beauty advice I ever received came from my husband. His advice was simply, "Stay Natural". He loves a pretty face without all the glam. To this day, he stands by this advice. Somedays I try to sneak in a little makeup and he'll say, "What...what happenned?" Ha ha ha...So I just keep it naked, that's how he loves me.
