big BIG news…

8 Apr

… will be coming my way today.  Hopefully.  I should hear from Clydebank College today.

In the meantime, here is a photo of me in blue mascara.  I was having trouble getting a photo in which I was NOT cross-eyed, so I just went with it.  Blue mascara needn’t make you look crazy.

I like to put black mascara on underneath coloured mascara.  This particular blue mascara is a Rimmel one I’ve had for about ten years, so right after I took this photo I chucked it in the bin because it was a little dry and chunky – but I shall be getting another one soon, fear not.  No one does electric blue mas like Rimmel.

8 photos of my eyebrows.

Take 2 x eyebrows…

… and if it’s nice n’ sharp, you can start at the outside of the brow, using the pointy pencil tip to pick the hairs up and colour them against the grain, which keeps it off the skin.

This creates a fetching wild-n-bushy look:

… which I like to smooth out with one of these:

The Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Master pencils come with one on the end; most brow pencils do, and if not, just use an old clean mascara wand.

Brush from underneath up and out, then from on top brush any long stragglers back down to join their friends in your perfectly arched neat line-up.

So THAT’S how she does it…

Re-sharpen the pencil then add more where/if required…

et voila.

More eyebrow tips:

Adding a light-coloured powder or pencil (well blended) underneath the arch of the brow can really lift the whole face and highlight the eyebrows nicely.

Put down the tweezers.  Step away from the tweezers.  If you’ve been plucking your brows for years and have gotten into a bit of a pickle and found yourself with misshapen, skinny, stubbly worms on your face, I challenge you to let them grow wild and free for… 6 months.  You’ll thank me.  It’ll be hard at first, and if you need to deal with a monobrow or hair on your actual eyelids, be my guest.  But for a much more flattering, youthful brow, more is more.
