If you know me, you know that I have a scar that runs the length of my forehead, through my eyebrows.  In some places I have no eyebrows, and in others they grow unevenly.  For this reason, I have to draw on and then fill in my eyebrows each day.  I’ve been working with my “wonky” brows for 24 years, and they’ve gone through some truly awkward phases.  (Don’t make me post photos of my Gene Harlow phase.)  After practicing with several different techniques and test driving many different products, I think I’ve finally found what works for me.  In fact, I often have people stop me and ask about how I do my eyebrows.  It’s so much easier to show than to explain, so I’ve made a video about my daily makeup routine and detailing my eyebrow technique.  I’ve been experimenting with different products as well.  The eyebrow palette I’m using in this video is from E.l.f.  Loreal offers a similar product for $10-$15.  E.l.f.’s product is $3-$5 and it works just as well for me.  However, I prefer to use this brush from Bdellium Tools instead of the one provided.  It’s actually an eyeliner brush.  It has a nice tip and bristles firm enough to apply the eyebrow pomade, while still flexible enough to control the brush strokes.  I’m also using the E.l.f. Poreless primer and Sally Hansen eye shadow in Creme Brule.  I’ve been happy with the quality of these products as compared to brands with a higher price point.  However, I want to point out that I am not looking for complete, matte coverage.  The routine you will see leaves my freckles visible, and I even have a blemish under my cheek bone.  My philosophy on makeup is “less is more” even when trying to cover up spots and blemishes.  While I will try to minimize their visibility, I sometimes feel that they are way more obvious when caked over with makeup.  Enjoy the video and feel free to leave *kind* comments, product recommendations, and suggestions!  I’d really appreciate a like and a share on Facebook or Pinterest!
