A reader wrote in about my brows the other day with attached potatoshop images. I thought I would show/try something.
I wasn't born with much in terms of brows and there is no arch to speak up nor can be be faked very well. (Irish roots but not black Irish apparently. I got Greek in there too but that must be sleeping)
I have them waxed and I always make the waxers nervous about how much to take since I don't have a lot. I try difrerent thing with them, gel, pencil, shadow. But mostly I don't like dark brows on me because it doesn't look like me. Maybe cause like I said I don't have it naturally. I've had countless makeup artists try things on me and to have most agree that something between "done" and left alone works best on my features.
So I attempted what was suggested but only as far as I felt normal. I did them once and they were way too much and wiped off and this was my second attempt. Who doesn't feel off walking around with something on their face they aren't used to?
my bangs are driving me nuts in this image. urk.
I wish my brows looked like Julie Mack. Maybe one day I will work up to it. (warning girl crush inducing)
Ok now that I have throughly confused (friend not husband) Dave H. Lets get on with the show!

We went to Target for a tape gun and paper towels and Dave found this little sweatshirt. He called it "fancy sweatshirt"
Perfect for summer and my freezing office. I already mentally packed it for my summer vacation which is still two months away.
Makeup sans glasses. (the above photo doesn't count for makeup. I don't like it for the makeup detail but it showed brows best. I'm fussy)
Hot pink blush Dollymix from MAC, Bronze liquid liner also MAC, Paris lipstick by Chanel, Black mascara, White eyeshadow and a soft pink under brows. Oh brows is Benefit brow box thing, whatever it's called. It has some witty name.
Makeup with glasses.
Shoes. Totally not awkward, no.
Ring and Shellac update. Day 8. Still going strong. The ring is Marc Jacobs perfume ring Lola. My inlaws got it for me for Christmas a year ago. I was so surprised because I was't sure she knew who Marc was or that he was my boyfriend, something my husband, her son is OK with.
Anything exciting planned for this week?
I haven't done this in awhile so if you have a blog could you please post a link to it in the comments so I can make sure I check it out and get to know all you better. (don't tell me where I can find a link, post the link please. People do that. They go to effort to tell me to go to their profile when they could of just posted a link)
