Fill ‘Em In Girl!

A pal of mine, Mia, texted me this awesome photo while I was editing this brow tutorial:

The above is a prime example of how not to have your eyebrow game.

So here is how I do my personal brows and the brows of my clients for a clean, even a faked freshly waxed brow.

Here’s what you need:

Concealer
Dark eyeshadow (black for me)
Angled Brush
Foundation Brush
Concealer Brush

Taking your concealer brush, frame your brow shape with a concealer. (This will act as a highlighter)

Take an angled brush with a a dark shadow and begin to lightly fill in the brow.

Use your foundation brush to brush away the concealer lines.

And voila, new brows, clean and pretty perfect 🙂

Products Used: Clinique Pore Refining Primer, Temptu S/B 7, Revlon Colorstay Bronzer, Mac Woodwinked & Carbon, Nyx Liquid Liner in Black, Ben Nye Concealer Wheel, Nyx Runway Palette, Clinique A Different Kind of Grape lipstick.

*Side note: yes those are indeed bantu knots in my hair. I definitely believe in resting your hair from heat. I simply blow dried my roots , sectioned and added coconut oil in my hair. I think divided it up into maybe 6 or 7 sections, twisted, and knotted them up. I let them be while I did this tutorial and then got dress ( so maybe an hour), took my blow dryer and did a cool shot on them and took them down.

‘Dem Browssssssss….

My name is Heather and I have a small obsession…
BROWS
Ask my pal Phillip, first time I met him I was like, ” Wow you’ve got brows!”

My obsession with brows probably comes from the fact that I am ethnically inclined to have a thick eyebrow… Ahem a thick brows as in a uni.
Ever since I was sixteen I’ve been shaping my brows, for better or worse.

While dress shopping for an event last week it dawned on me, new year try something new, so I did.
First up…
My brows!

While browsing on Tumblr I came across a photo of model Cara Delevingne and fell in love with, you guessed it, her brows!

I decided to give the shape a whirl and see what happens!
Luckily I’d been growing my brows out for a month so by the time I visited my brow lady I had something to work with….

I initially was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get this look, because the head of my brows has been shaped bigger and the it gets thinner as you approach the arch. After waxing, shaving, tweezing I was certain I wouldn’t get it, but she came to the rescue!

She came through and with a bit of filling in, and waxing in a new direction eventually I will get some of the thickness back.
The moral of the story is that you shouldn’t be afraid to try something new!
I did and I turned out looking great for my event 🙂

Had a private makeup lesson with a pal who just moved back to the US and wanted to upgrade her look. 
I’d say it went well :-)
I am currently developing makeup workshops for ladies who want to learn the basics of makeup applications for themselves and hope to begin rolling it out in August locally in Richmond, Va. Each workshop will host a maximum of 4 women and will include specially tailored mini makeup kits.
