Hello, friends! Today I wanted to do makeup that was sorta ugly, sorta pretty, and all the way weird.
I had to start by lightening my eyebrows. I think if my hair were medium brown or dark blond these would be the bees’ knees…for my brown-almost-black hair, they look like I bleached them ugly. Whatever. I wanted the brows to be lighter than the makeup for once.
I just picked up this gorgeous Charmed palette from Pacifica, which has all these interesting sheer duochrome eyeshadows that look AH-MA-ZING over a black cream base. I picked a pink one, because I like to look like I have an eye infection on Thanksgiving.
For the next touch of weird, I brought the darker shades up to the start of my eyebrow like a 1920s flapper smokey eye. I don’t think I did a very good job of it, but there you go. It’s supposed to look sad…mine just sorta looks like I don’t know how to apply eyeshadow.
♦ Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Blackmail (This sucker does not come off. Like, ever.)
♦ Pacifica Charmed Palette: Charming
♦ L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Highlighter (for waterline and upper lashline)
♦ Wet ‘n Wild Eyeshadow in Panther
♦ Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette: Righteous, Tyranny
♦ Rimmel Scandaeyes Rockin’ Curves Mascara
For the brows, I ran a spooly with concealer through to lighten them, then filled them in with Maybelline Define-a-Brow Pencil in Light Brown. This pencil is PERFECT: extremely thin tip, twist up, good formula, everything, EXCEPT THEY DISCONTINUED ALL THE DARKER SHADES. WHAT. WHAT. I AM OUTRAGED. FEEL MY CAPSLOCK WRATH, MAYBELLINE.
But for real? The only other eyebrow pencil I like is the Anastasia Brow Wiz and that costs 21 freakin’ bucks. No thank you.
Thoughts? Happy late Thanksgiving, by the way 🙂
