I’ve loved makeup for as long as I can remember. My mum never wore it, but my Aunty did, and she used to give me odd bits here and there, and of course over the years it became a love of mine. I’ve gone through many phases in my life, from heavy eyeliner and 3 pairs of lashes, to oompa lumps orange and pencil thin brows, to even wearing barely anything. But no matter what phase I go through makeup is a big part of my life.
When I was around 14 I shaved my brows off. I regretted it instantly and they grew back in, but I was obsessed with plucking them, almost every day so of course they were teeny tiny thin little lines on my face. Eventually at around 21, I grew them back in fully and barely plucked them, but with my other obsession of dying my hair every month or so I was forever having to change the colour I used to darken or lighten, or pencil in my brows.
Anyway a few years ago an eyebrow phenomenon started, people discovered brow products, and everyone and their mumma (seriously even mine) was pencilling in their brows.
I’ve gone through a few shapes in my time, but just recently I have refound a love for makeup and have been watching a lot more tutorials etc, and with that comes learning about brows. Two maybe even three months ago I thought my brows looked fine, but I soon discovered other products and other techniques and started playing around more. My point is I’ve only now realised how awful my brows were a few months ago and don’t know why nobody told me how horrific they were.
The first I was using a pencil to pencil them in, hence the solid block of colour, and in the second I had used 3 different shades of brow powder, all applied really lightly.
