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.

Rainbow eyes-attempt #1

So, I tried to do rainbow eyes at my friend’s “Waiting to Exhale” night and it wasn’t pretty. #1, I didn’t wear any face make-up. I don’t consider that to be a BAD thing since I am just now wearing foundations, but I think I’ve learned that if you want eyes that pop out—-perhaps the entire face should look “pretty decent”.

So yeah….I didn’t wear my Studio Fix and ugghh…I probably should have. Here is how it looked. Not a really good picture, but you get the idea…

Actually….you can’t even see the color @ all, uh? Okay, how ’bout in THIS pic?

I look pretty terrible…..I wasn’t100% happy with my face anyway when I left the house either, sooo….look how oily my skin looks. Pretty clear and free from blemishes, but defintely oily.

And my eyebrows? I really don’t even want to talk about it…..still working and learning on how to contour them. Ugh, I need a teacher or something because I’ve never mastered doing my own eyebrows.

That’s okay—-I’m learning, I’m learning.

C-Shock!

C-SHOCK!!!

Today MAC’s newest line came out and I am SOOOO excited. Only, I’m somewhat in a financial hole, so I can’t afford to indulge in these colors like I really want to. :( I thought about purchasing at least one color, but I can’t…..I have to buy at least 2 and that’s gonna run me $20 alone, so I’m just going to have to be patient and wait.

These colors are VIBRANT and will look great on darker skinned folx. ‘Bout time! I want the entire collection!

I’m going out tonight and want to do parrot eyes. I’m going to go home and practice and then do the real thing tonight.

Yessssss…..
