Everyone who knows me is aware that I’m a YouTube junkie. I used to work at a cosmetic counter in a department store, and that’s really where my interest in makeup came from. The store would pay for us to go to these conventions and it was really cool learning about skincare and techniques for applying war paint and such. I didn’t stay at the store long but I did continue my enthusiasm about all things beauty, and a friend told me I should teach myself using YT. So I did and its some of the best advice I’ve gotten thus far.
I’ve really learned how to make each look I do on myself my own, and its taken A LOT of practice. And I’m still learning different techniques. But one problem for me has been my brows. In high school I got them waxed and they just never grew back. I wasn’t too versed on how to properly fill them in, and it was awful. They didn’t look terrible, but they didn’t look as good as I know they could. I was in Brow Purgatory. One day, during an impromptu trip to Macy’s, I finally was set free. I went to the Mac counter, just to buy foundation, and the girl who was tending to me asked “What do you use on your brows?”. I was like “Eyeliner…?”. Welp she began to explain to me that the oil from the liner was giving them an unnatural appearance. Then she filled them in using Mac’s eyebrow stick in the color Spiked.
Honey! When I tell you I looked like a brand new gal! That was the best my girls have ever looked. And she sat and taught me how to achieve the look, I even practiced in front of her. Filling them in correctly, with the right product, gave me a lift and the appearance of a bigger, brighter eye. Being part Asian, I have really small eyes (they disappear when I laugh or smile lol), so this very great piece of information was definitely appreciated. This tutorial here by Nitraa B is one of my absolute faves. Its short and sweet, and extremely easy. If you have a love hate relationship with your brows do yourself a favor and watch this baby, it has everything you need to achieve that perfect brow.
Stay beautiful loves ❤
