Me and My Eyebrows Have Issues..Friday, September 23, 2011
Hope you're all okay and very glad it's Friday, I am having yet another 'lazy' day, I am making the most of these as very soon I will be entering my third year of university. Although slightly dreading it, I'm also looking forward to getting some routine back!
Now I have a love/hate relationship with my eyebrows, most of the time it's a hate relationship. When I was younger I had very bushy eyebrows, not quite Charlie from Busted level but bushy nevertheless. I used to hate them and was so happy when I was old enough to start plucking/shaping my eyebrows. Lucky for me my Mum is a trained beauty therapist so she would wax them for me, waxing is really effective for your eyebrows, in my opinion it hardly hurts and the shape lasts for ages after. Luckily after years of waxing my eyebrows most of the time retain they their shape and need plucking to keep them in shape every week or so.
Now because I'm at uni well over a 100 miles from home, I can't get my eyebrows waxed that often which means my eyebrows now have to be tweezed. I was reading The Beauty Department which is Lauren Conrad and friends beauty blog/website and I found a tutorial on how to shape your eyebrows. In the tutorial, Lauren trims her eyebrows, she gets a eyebrow comb/brush and brushes the hairs upwards and if the hairs are above the shape of the eyebrow you trim them. I had a go at this and couldn't believe the difference this makes. With my slightly neater eyebrows I thought I would have a try at filling them in.
I've always been envious of girls with neatly polished brows, I could never get the hang of filling them in so kind of gave up ( I know, I know, call myself a beauty blogger eh?) Anyways the other night I thought, I am going to MASTER this. So I got my eyebrow pencil and filled one eyebrow in, now for some reason they went horribly dark and I felt like this (see picture below)
