Video (Tutorial Request)- How to naturally shade in your eyebrows

I rarely do video tutorials because I hate hearing and seeing myself actually talk and move haha, and I can only imagine how YOU gals would feel! LOL, but I thought it would be easier to show this request via video rather than pictures.

This was a request by reader Christina who currently uses a mineral eyeshadow to shade in her eyebrows and wants to know other ways she can shade in her eyebrows using a pencil or another easier way rather than toting a mineral eyeshadow around which can get a bit messy. Sephora #206 is a good pencil if you gals use pencils on your eyebrows, but I LOVE the NYC eyebrow kit which comes with wax to help your eyebrow hairs stay in place, as well as being cheap! At only $3 a pop!

Please forgive me for I say “um” a lot in the video because I was really nervous! Also my nose is still a bit swollen (still bruised inside), don’t ask why, lol.

I also forgot to add at the end, that if you happen to shade in your eyebrows TOO dark, take your brush that has a little foundation on it (I use leftover foundation on the brush from when I applied it to my face), and just gently brush it over your eyebrows to “soften” and lighten the color a bit. :)

Hope you gals enjoy, if you wish that I never make another video, that makes 2 of us! LOL.

MAKEUP REVIEW: Anastasia Eye Brow Gel (Clear)

4.5 out of 5 stars

I first received a sample of Anastasia’s Brow Gel from Sephora when I racked enough Beauty points, and I loved it ever since! I have always used clear mascara gel from the drugstores, and let me tell you it doesn’t work for me, it stays put the moment I apply it, but later in the day I see hairs that have escaped the shape and it bugs me!

PROS: It really tames my eyebrow hairs from straying away and keeps them in shape all day! No weird smell, no flakes, and isn’t sticky or hard to apply to your brows, just comb and shape as you would normally and you’re done.

CONS: It can be a bit stiff when you put too much on, or put too much in one specific area, not a hard stiff where it’s not flexible, but it’s like you can feel the gel when it’s dry.

OVERALL: I really liked it! I am actually going to be purchasing the full size one! :)
