Best Lingerie & Bras For Small Breasts

Throughout my early and even late teenage years I've always been self-conscious about my petite breast size. It seemed like every girl around me grew and became more feminine, while my body never changed. For a very long time this part of my body had a negative impact on my self-perception. At times I felt less of a woman, just because my body was different from all the girls around me and the women I saw in movies and magazines. The years went by and the older I become, the more appreciation I gain for the way I look. My bust size hasn't changed much, but I started looking and finding positive aspects of having petite sizes. Now, I'm absolutely sure that small breasts can be just as attractive and sexy as their larger sisters, especially if you pick up the right faceting for the gems. Here are few of my favorite lingerie styles and materials, which will make you feel feminine and dashing even if you are an owner of tiny breast size.

Etude House Color My Brows | Review & Swatch

Eyebrows are one of my most favorite topics on January Girl, I can talk about eyebrow styling for hours! The peculiar thing is that before the early '2010s there was no specific eyebrow fashion. Of course, ladies prefer grooming and shaping their eyebrows in a particular manner, but no one gave so much attention to them. In my high school years I never even touched them, just plucked with tweezers time to time, but makeup never touched my brows. With the advent of eyebrow fashion (if we can say so) everyone started taking care of their eyebrows, shaping, grooming, growing, and bleaching those hairs above the eyes. Today I feel like the makeup isn't complete without fully filled and 'carved' eyebrows and eyebrow gels help to tame the hairs, setting them in place. Here is a review and demonstration of yet another eyebrow product for mischievous eyebrows - Etude House's Color My Brows  mascara that combs and fills eyebrows with color.

Wearing long hair front lace wigs can be a lot of fun. You can wear it loose or style it in many different  ways.

Here is how you can avoid unwanted wig troubles, when caring for your front lace wig. First of all, make sure that chosen lace front wigs are made from natural hair. The straight hair wig should be one of these three textures: naturally straight, yaki straight - a hair that looks like it was flat-ironed, or silky straight hair.

Spring shower rains and warm zephyrs are slowly winning over winter's chilly temperatures. The weather is changing, so does my mood, which I like to support with the external shifts in my looks, adapting my look and surroundings.

Chop this, whisk with that, apply on the skin and voilà - it is refreshed, brightened and toned up! Doesn't it sound amazing?

Every makeup lover knows that you can't have too many eyeliners in your beauty arsenal. All of them are very handy, when you need to provide an extra sass to the eyes. Pencil eyeliners and eye kohls are irreplaceable when it comes to smokey eye, gel eyeliners are best for the iconic smudged Megan Fox eye look and liquid eyeliners create the best, sharp as a knife's blade cat eyes. But, finding a good-working eyeliner could be just as hard, as defining those wings. Some makeup artists spend years and years in the search for high-performance eyeliner.
