    Testing out my Halloween dragon makeup on one side of my face. It has to stay put during a 5k so no foundation. Lipstick is a brown nude matte with eyeshadow patted into it. I took a quick shower to wash all the gunk off my face, used my usual face wash which gets most makeup off, and looked at myself in the mirror and I had a perfectly clean face with green lips! Then I had to go through two different makeup removers before I found one that worked. I was panicked I was going to have permanent green lipstick for a while there, when they say it stays on I guess they mean it!

    So...I got my eyebrows threaded earlier this week. She asked if I wanted them tinted. Of course I did cuz I’m a sucker. But, I’m actually really impressed. I think it’s great to not have to really fill them in. Just a tiny bit on the ends. I’d have liked them a little bit more on the cool side but you can’t really tell in pics I guess.

    I couldn’t find a great pic without my hair partially covering them. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Oooh I love it! I tint my brows at home. I have to do it monthly or they disappear 😌

    Yours look great! She matched the color well to your hair. I haven't tinted mine since January (I use Sephora's Brow Bar services)

    When you do yours or get them done does it actually shape them? I don’t understand how. Like, I thought it would just make what I have darker but it actually shaped them so well that I don’t have to compensate for the shape or anything. I was surprised.

    And thank you!

    It can have the illusion of shaping them for a few days while the tint is still staining the skin under the brows.. mine still need filling in after that

    And at the Brow Bar, it's a Wax and Tint combo for me so as not to resemble a Neanderthal as I am apt to do in my true form

    @LoveyChar Were your sides like this? I just started growing mine out from this length. I've had a very short pixie for almost 10 years now and I dont know that I'll go back to something longer. yx2fqpqcmulr.jpg

    @MelG7777 disclaimer - I would have commented on the eyebrows but I don’t know what that means ... don’t worry I’ll ban myself from posting in this thread now...

    Old selfie, almost 5 years ago after a graded research presentation in my final semester of college. This was a "thank God it's over" smile of relief. I have not worn lipstick in over 7 months.

    You look so much like the beautiful Jennifer Garner 😍
