I like extending the tail my of brows, but pencils don't last since I tend to rub on them. I wonder if the brow gels would work well. D;

I do the same thing and from the pic above, I think it will work well and her brows are beautiful. I can't wait to see them I. Person on January 10. I am going to preorder mine tomorrow when I pick up my Amber Glow that I decided to get after reading everyone's reviews and thoughts. Just what I need is one more blush. I counted that I had 26 Mac blushes, not counting MSF....what is one more blush, Right?

Damn it, I just placed an order to use up a gift card I won, I ordered a bunch of Anastasia stuff but not the serums because I couldn't find any reviews.

Fashions come and go, but as we get older, a more natural brow is very age defyingth_hug.gif

 

Gahhhh, I want my brows back! lol

 

Thanks, you are giving me hope! I'm afraid they won't grow back at some places, sorry if it's OT but here's a pic of me when I was a kid so obviously, my brows were all natural. You can see that they were already patchy!

Awwwwww, look how adorable you were! You can see those cheekbones kicking in even then! queen.gif

 

Don't worry, it's been 2 years since I decided to grow mine back all the way, and they keep getting better now. We have makeup to help enhance the little things, and let me tell you, I can't think of a single woman who wouldn't trade some big 'ole eyebrows for your bone structure and profile, etc.! You are waaaay ahead of the game already, sweetie!! grouphug2.gif

I think the dirty blonde brow gel will work for me. I want to see it in stores as well! I am curious about the brow pencils. I don't know which one I should get. I was thinking strawberry blonde, but after hearing that it might be too late, I'm not sure. I am currently using MAC Taupe pencil. I'm not too happy about paying $23 for a brow pencil though.

Wonderif we could use the new own ils with the gel to achieve the color and look?

I completely agree!  It's a shame that it has become so popular.  I especially hate it when girls use a concealer that is much too light for them.  I can't wait for this trend along with excessive countouring and unflattering Nicki Minaj'esque lip colors to be over with!

Word! I've been plucking mine for about 30 years and you'd never know it. If I stopped for 2-3 weeks they'd be as full and bushy as they were at 14. I actually pluck mine every other day at minimum - I have to. While my hair starting turning white very young (found my first in my teens), I don't have any grey in my brows. I'm not sure when that will happen.

That's called a "halo". There's one girl on youtube that is notorious for caked concealer under her brow, as well as the halo. I called her out on it. Her looks are starting to slip, along with her blending. I can't bear to watch her anymore. It's sad really.

Well, now I'm curious. Can you link me?

LMAO...I was thinking that too...now I need to know!  There are a few gurus that I watch on Youtube who actually can do makeup, but there are quite a few who don't know what they are doing, or can only do that over the top excessive look all the time (drag, stage makeup).

Too light concealer above and below the brows.
post #258 of 666

I have dark brown/black eyebrows and used to use Chanel Blonde Cendre pencil, now d/c.  Even though it was several shades lighter, people would use this to create a "natural" brow.  Do you guys think the Dirty Blonde f/l would accomplish the same thing? 

post #259 of 666

Deep dark brunette gelcreme is sold out on the website weeping.gif

Look at all that concealer!



I can see her halo, halo, halo

I can see her halo. Halo. Halo. Halooooooo ooooo

Oh my goodness.  The Deep Dark Brunette fluidline is soldout.  What is wrong with me?  Why didn't I order it already?  Really, I was trying to figure out whether or not to get some other products. I finally make a decision and its gone.  You would think I'd know better by now.  I was trying to avoid running to the stores for one product. Does anyone know if the Pro stores have it already?

Already? I didn't think that would go anywhere for a while. Was still contemplating my bu of it. At least you can still get it in stores, but I understand you didn't want to make the trip for one item. Hopefully that means *fingers crossed* it might be permanent!

I think Pro stores put it out this Thursday.

What makes me reluctant to try the brow fluidlines is how solid the colour looks in the swatches. That's not what I want in a brow product - I just want it to fill in the gaps without screaming 'look at me!'. Going over the brows with a cotton bud might help diffuse the colour, but I don't know if it would work with the formula. I don't like how regular fluidlines look when smudged. I guess this is the sort of product I can't afford to buy without seeing in person.

I agree completely with that, a solid line makes it look too done for my taste and more obvious than I like.  So I use the brush that looks like a mascara wand on the tip?  or the brow brush to brush out the line I draw right after I draw it and before it sets and try to comb out the product a bit or make it an uneven line (with breaks).  I like that much better.  And I am so with you ladies on not doing a line on the top, just the bottom--it looks a total disaster every time I try that.  It is almost as bad as teh old sharpie eyebrows

She needs to just wax that thing already.  This is a trend I cannot support.  Nah Nah Nah

My brows don't have enough room for 2 different colored liners!

Not to worry.

 

I was texting my daughter once when i was on a long road trip. I'd stop into a restaurant and ordered fried chicken. I'd gotten as far as typing "fried chi..." and my phone finished the word for me as "children". I can assure everyone, fried children were not on the menu.

Isn't it better to fill them in with 2 differents shades? A darker one where you see the skin, and lighter one where there's hair?
