My eyebrow journey

I consider makeup to be such an unappreciated art form. Sure, girls (and some guys) use makeup to make themselves look and feel better. But there is so much that goes into the makeup process, and if you forget one thing it could make the biggest difference.

I am definitely a makeup enthusiast, but I still have so much to learn. I recently upgraded from the sponge tip eyeshadow applicators to makeup brushes (woot woot!) One thing I have more or less noticed is that my eyebrows have been on a journey of their own.

I’m going to admit that I still have no idea how to shape my eyebrows, but I will say that they do look a little better than what they used to!

1.) Circa 2009
Here is the beginning of my eyebrow journey. Every time I look at this photo I majorly cringe. Now, I clearly didn’t know what tweezers were. During this really painful and awkward time of my life I just didn’t care. I never washed my face, brushed my hair, nonetheless tweezed my eyebrows.

2.) 2010 my eyebrows were getting a little better. Thankfully, my blunt and incredibly straightforward mom told me that I had caterpillars for eyebrows. This was when I had her tweeze them for me.

3.) 2011
At this point, I had begun to tweeze my own brows. Clearly, I was still getting the hang of this since they’re oddly shaped on the thicker ends.


4.) 2012
This was at the beginning of 2012. Here was when I was making the HORRIBLE decision to over tweeze. It’s a wonder that I didn’t pluck all of my hairs off.
5.) Mid 2012
I’m not sure if I just got lazy, or realized that my eyebrows would go extinct if I kept over plucking them. They’re growing a little further here, but still, they are really oddly shaped.
6.) 2013
Bless my pea picking heart. I tried and they were definitely looking better. The only problem is one eyebrow is way thicker than the other. This was also when I started learning how to fill in my brows.

7.) Present Day
I’m loving thick brows so much right now. My browspiration is definitely Lily Collins. Currently, I just use my eyebrow shaver (which is dangerous because I may or may not have shaved off the end of my eyebrow when I started using it…) and I fill my brows in with a pencil or an eyeshadow that is two shades lighter than my actual hair. It’s working the best for me right now, and I may experiment in the future, but for now I’m going to stick with what I know.

      Aren’t they though?! Thank God for the whole “eyebrows are sisters not twins” thing. If that were the case I’d be in serious trouble! And thank you! It took me long enough to find a decent enough shape haha!
