The Hack That Changed My Life feat. Bench Fix Clay Doh Molding Clay

In one of my beautube marathon sessions, I discovered the hairspray makeup hack for brows. I’m sorry I can’t remember who the beautuber was (credit to whoever thought of this genius idea). The hack: If you run out of brow mascara, groom your brows with a hairspray by spraying the latter to a spoolie brush and combing the brows. I didn’t own hairspray at the time (I still don’t), but I remembered that I owned a mini-tub of hair wax that I haven’t been using since I stopped caring for baby hairs that keep sticking out from my head.

Eyebrow Shaping for The Totally Clueless

I used to get my eyebrows shaped and threaded every two weeks. But I decided that I should just learn how to shape and groom my own brows to save time and money. The first thing I did was watch hundreds of youtube tutorials and read as many blog posts as possible. After consuming all those resources, I still couldn’t get it.

Etude House Drawing Eye Brow 05 Grey Review and Swatch

I can already see myself running out of makeup products to review someday. When I find something that works, I don’t look for something else and marketing fluff loses its effect on me. The product doesn’t even have to be the best. Background Story Most makeup artists advise to use an eyebrow pencil that’s a few shades lighter than our eyebrows (darker if you’re blonde). My eyebrow hair is black, dense, and thick.  I came to the conclusion that brown is a lighter shade of black.
