LOL! That’s me trying to make a “Shhh!” face, as in “I have secret to tell you, shhh!” Believe it or not, getting it just right on camera is a lot harder than it looks, shhh! Who knew?
Before I get distracted yet again by goofy pics and this delicious cup of coffee (GOOD MORNING!), can we talk brows?
If you fill in your brows with brow powders, pencils or gels (or maybe a combination of all three, which I do sometimes), do you ever find the products vanishing halfway through the day? It can be kind of a pain.
With that in mind, here’s a tip to help keep those beautiful brows from disappearing.
Start by grabbing your favorite colorless eye makeup primer. If you don’t have one yet, there are lots of good ones out there to choose from, like Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Tarte Clean Slate and Urban Decay Primer Potion, among others. I’m using NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base here, which is my current go-to eye makeup primer.
Apply a small amount of your primer directly atop your bare brows…
Then, pat it down with a finger to work the product down between the follicles into your skin.
Layering the primer beneath your brow products should help extend the wear time of powders, pencils and gels, keeping your eyebrow makeup looking fresher, longer.
No more MIA brows, yay!
Yes, I’m a makeup nerd, and little things like this really do get me fired up.
What a fangtastic season so far!
Finally got the chance to catch up on True Blood last night, and OMG! What the heck is happening?! All hell is breaking loose in Bon Temps, y’all. I can’t even begin to predict what’s going to go down next!
LOVED Vampire Pam’s awesomely ’80s crimped hair…
I rocked this style circa 1989
Oh, boy. I may have to break down and look for a crimping iron at Target today…
