Eyebrow Tutorial | Shape and Fill

20131017-210350.jpg

Raise those eyebrows ladies, it’s time to get those caterpillars in check!
While it took me a lifetime to get mine correct I’m here to pass my trial and error wisdom along to you!
So here’s what you will need:
Eyebrow pencil (or powder, whichever you prefer)
Eyebrow gel
Eyebrow spoolie
Brow bone highlighter
Cream concealer

Now onto the basics!
My simple rules are to follow your natural brow shape, use your nose and your eyes as your guidelines, use short lines and strokes to keep them natural looking, and use a shade match to your roots.

Now that you have the ground rules down its time to jump into it, check out the below video for my full rundown. Remember, practice makes perfect!
Good luck!

Benefit – They’re Real

Let me start off by saying hello. It has been an insane amount of time since my last post but I have been trying out other blogging outlets, moving cross state and having another baby. So I’ve been a touch busy. Don’t you fear though in my time off I have greatly increased my knowledge and collection and am super excited to pick up where I left off.

I am a sucker for mascara, if I was to say I haven’t tried it all then I would be lying. So during my most recent Sephora haul I came upon Benefit Cosmetics ‘They’re Real’ mascara and I had yet to try it which is odd because I am a totally Benefit girl and here is my review:
While the brush initially threw me off because I’m not the biggest fan of far apart bristles, I have to say I was impressed! The gel like formula did some serious coating to my lashes but didn’t clump once. It didn’t look like falsies which can be a problem for me because I have what is known as “crazy eyes”.
My lashes felt soft and just super luxurious so this was another big win for Benefit and a small loss for my bank account (sorry hunny!)
This mascara retails for around $20 a tube for the full size product. So go forth and purchase and happy blending!
