Eyebrows-attempt 1

I pretty much have the WORST ones ever. They were never good to me. Too thick, too curly and sooo unmanageable. And the sad thing is, I have YET figured out how to make them look good. I get them threaded on a regular but of all of my threading/waxing/tweezing experiences, I have only had ONE good one. The other ones have been “Ehhh…..it’ll do.”

Ugh, so silly me…..my entire life I thought that women with impeccable eyebrows were born that way! But nooo…..a great deal of ladies fill in their brows. I didn’t know that!!

Sooo, I’ve been hearing wonderful things about Milani’s Eyebrows Pencils and so I’m definitely going to get hip to that.
In the meantime, however….I’ve just been playing around and learning how to fill them in with a lipliner pencil. LOL, ayyyy…..don’t laugh. A sista has limited resources. I gotta work with what I got, yo!
Sooo, I tried to fill in the brow to the left. It’s waaaay too thick, right? But that’s definitely the shape that I’m looking to get. I’ve studied eyebrow structuring and have learned that the highest arch should be perpendicular to the end of my nostril. Or somethin‘ like that…..

And so I tried the same thing with my design Doxical and it didn’t come out AS good, but better than how my brows normally look.

Aaaand, here’s my attempt on BOTH brows. Ugh, not so good.

I’m thinking I’ll find better success once I actually use products that are FOR eyebrows. LOL….I’m really just playing around for now. My goal is to not be so dependent on getting them done. My best friend does her own brows and they are gorgeous. Sometimes we get too caught up in having someone do ours and then we look like hell until we can get them done again. I only want to go to my threading lady for re-definition of my arch, but I definitely want to maintain them myself. Imma get there!!

Here’s a full look shot with filled in brows and Doxical. No Studio Fix….remember, I promised myself that I wasn’t going to wear it all this week. Ugh, but I’m definitely detoxing next week because my skin has been terrible lately. You can’t tell in this pic, but it looks like I’m having some allergic reaction or somethingoin‘ on….I would just DIE if I were allergic to MAC.

…….too terrible to even think about.

    great job! even if you think they didn’t look all that IRL.. they look pretty good in pics. that happens to me sometimes. i’ll think i did ehh, not so good, but when you take pics, you don’t see all of that. i’m loving the way you name your eye looks… too cute. i know you feel MAC is superior to milani and HIP, but don’t sleep on them. i’m constantly comparing ‘shades’ of MAC to the other brands. sometimes it’s all about the base that you use and the type of brush. the denser the brush, the more color you’ll pick up. you are doing great!
