A Time to Have Incredible Eyebrows

Hi everyone,

Happy Monday! Today, I need to post very short and quick as my right hand is killing me. Although I've been through this before, I still do not fully understand the importance of my body. Abusing my right hand too much in the form of writing and using the computer has never been a good thing. Last weekend, I spent most of my time relaxing and putting my hand away so I did not have to use it. Now, I feel a bit better but it is still hurting me!

Anyways, after so many years of learning to groom my own eyebrows, I came to a conclusion that I'm not so good at it. My eyes and face are not very symmetric and as a result, my eyebrows look like two different animals. I can go to the salon to get them groomed but most times I came out with really thin eyebrows. After reading so many books about makeup and beauty, I now can groom my own brows with confidence. But that's going to be another post for another day, as I can't type a detailed post today (or anytime soon!)

The one discovery that makes my life a whole lot easier is the eyebrow powder/wax combo. In these pictures, I used E.L.F Studio eyebrow kit and it is very easy to use. I'll do a review/tutorial in the future, don't worry!

I didn't have any foundation on, just eye liners, mascara, and brow powder

They almost look symmetrical!

See my lashes?
I used the wand of L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion and the juice of L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen mascaras. I like the volume and length from this combination.

For those who wonders what I used on my eyes, this is what I did:
  • I lined my upper lashes with a liquid eyeliner, then applied several coats of mascaras. After that, I lined my lower lashes with Wet n Wild eyeliner in Turquoise. I also highlighted the area underneath my brow bone with a chubby white liner.
 These days, I barely have time to apply makeup anymore. Also, the humidity is so high that I feel everything will just slide off my face the moment I step outside. And on top of that, to make life more "interesting", my face has been giving me a hard time with all the zits and scars.

But don't feel so bad for me, I have bangin' eyebrows all by myself!

  1. You know what? I also have an eyebrow problem too. I used to have thick, wayward brows until I let myself be led by the very capable hands of a salon personnel that threads it every 2 weeks.

    I also had a fear of too-thin eyebrows (omg never want that!) but I told her specifically that I just wanted it 'cleaned up', those are the magic words. They take the wayward hair and shape the brows properly.

    Not good at plucking by myself, last time I did that it was as if the two sides of my face had their own personalities! Lol!

  2. Hi Aicha,

    Although it would be nice to go to the salon, I prefer to try my luck at home. I'll post about this as soon as my hand gives me a break. It's totally doable.

  3. I hope your hand feels better soon! I love your eyebrows, they look great! I'm looking forward to know how you groom them, but take your time Dao, we understand.

  4. Hi Gio,

    I feel a lot better now, thanks to vitamin M (motrin!) I'll try to take it easy but again, I have so many things on my plate.

  5. Hey dear! Might just be the flash - but to me, the brow color seems to be a bit too brown for your brows in the first picture, since your hair is such a deep, rich black color. The shape of the brows is absolutely perfect, but you might want to try a cooler toned brow pencil or powder, maybe a charcoal or taupe.

    I've been trying my best to grow out and shape my brows to have more of an arch. I use a mixture of threading and plucking on myself, and I often also use a white pencil to draw an outline outside the shape of the brow to determine which extraneous hairs to pluck.

  6. Hi May,

    You're absolutely right, that color has some reddish tone, which is a bit too light for me. Alienman probably will prefer this. I do have another brow powder set but it's discontinued so I'm looking for an alternative. You can thread your brows by yourself? Wow!


Dear Dao...
