The eyes are the windows to your soul.
I have always believed that my pair of eyes is one of my assets. Yeah, I might be wearing glasses or contact lenses to see properly, but, still, people usually notice my eyes first. And this is why I have vowed to learn more about makeup – to make this pair really stand out. 🙂
For me, though, one of the most important things us women can do to bring out our eyes more is to shape our eyebrows. I used to have VERY thick eyebrows. Don’t believe me? Well, look at this old photo of moi back in high school.
Ugh, I tell yah (and those oversized glasses didn’t suit me AT ALL). It was only in college when my dear kikay cousin Rose sat me down and told me I need to do something with my brows. She plucked them into shape! But, I got so hooked on plucking them that I ended up with thin eyebrows, as pictured below. 😀
Yeah, that’s me! Can you believe it?! 😀
My thin eyebrows made me look older than I really am so I searched the web and Youtube for tutorials on how to make them look more natural and generally nicer. I learned that there’s no way I can regrow the hair back to its normal eyebrow shape after plucking.
A friend of mine suggested I switch to using plain eyebrow pencil to powder. I was a bit concerned ‘cause I’m not sure about the eyebrow powder makeup’s staying power. I decided to give it a try though, with In2It Waterproof Eyebrow Makeup.
I bought it from the beauty section in SM Department Store for only Php 300. At first, I was a bit overwhelmed by the price, but decided to continue with the purchase. Let’s just say that I have no regrets about that decision. 🙂
Pardon the photo. I promise to take better shots of the products next time.
There are three (3) shades available – caramel, brown and dark brown. At first, I only used the third shade ‘cause I have really black eyebrows. But, then, I realized my brows look too dark for me. So, I switched back to the brown. I use the caramel or lightest shade to make my natural eyebrow hair look more brown than black.
