Look at them arches

Salon Perfect Brow Powder and Stencil Combo in Taupe

Elf Studio Eyebrow Kit Gel & Medium Powder


Tweezerman and brow brush

I don't know how long I've been filling in my brows, since the beginning of time maybe? My brows are light and have lighter hairs around the arches. Filling them in is the easier way, rather than dealing with tints etc. For a while I was just purchasing a matte eyeshadow. That worked fine, but I never managed to pick a right color, or somehow managed to use the wrong applicator and ended up with glitter brows. Sounds wonderful, huh? I found these stencils first. It comes with four stencils, powder and applicator. I loved these stencils, I have a shaky hand and can never seem to get things symmetrical. I use the elegant stencil, it resembles my normal eyebrow shape the best. The thing I didn't like about this product is the powder. I just don't think I like powders in general, they're a bit messy. I purchased the Elf eyebrow kit about a week ago and I fell in love with the gel. It helps with precision around the arches. It also comes with a setting powder. I use it on the bigger part of my brows. I also love that the applicator has two sides; arched and rounded bristles. I think using the stencils with the eyebrow kit works perfectly, I won't be giving up gels for filling in my brows. I also use a Tweezerman for shaping them. I love these, I've had this pair for years and they still work wonderfully. These have to be the best ones out there. I use a regular brow brush. And as you can see, it's probably time for a new one, poor thing has been through a lot. 

Yesterday I took the day off from blogging so that I could spend time with my wonderful bf. He works different times, so it's nice to have our quality time. I've also been in project mode. I have quite a few things going on right now. As you know, or don't know, I'm teaching myself to sew. More specifically, dresses. I've been wanting to do so for a very long time, so I'm making it happen this year. It's definitely a lot harder than I expected. And I guess it doesn't help that I'm not even using a pattern, I've decided to make my own entirely. Very, very ambitious, I know, I just can't help myself. Also, I've been preparing a guest blog post for an adorable online boutique called Frock Stock. I'm very excited, my date and topic will be shown here. As well as all the other wonderful bloggers, you should check it out. There's still a few more spaces available, so get over there if you would like to participate. I've been thinking about doing a thrifty shopping spree. I love the idea of altering clothes that I can get from thrift stores.
Sorry for the long blog, I guess that's what happens when you skip a day.

Xo,

  2. I think eyebrows really frame the face. I use Rimmel's eyebrow pencil at the moment.
