Hello Beauty Addicts!
I'm going to start a mini 'series' in this blog called 'Beauty Mission'.
Basically in each Beauty Mission post I'll discuss something I want to improve on/change beauty wise, what steps I'm going to take, progress updates..
I know many of us ladies out there have the same issues and problems - whether it be skin problems, hair problems and so on - so hopefully this won't just be helpful to myself but helpful to other people out there.
For the first in this series: Eyebrows!!
I personally believe that your eyebrows can completely change your face - anyone else agree?
Last year I stupidly got into the habit of plucking my eyebrows on a regular basis and the end result was thin, little, no-shape nothings which I regret. As you can see in the picture below they were very thin with no shape.
My eyebrow Beauty Mission is to make my eyebrows even, thicker and perfectly shaped.
How am I going to do that?
* Putting the tweezers away!
* I've started to get them threaded every 2-3 weeks. I've been going to one specific lady over the past few months and I basically sat down with her and discussed my eyebrows aims. She completely agreed that they were uneven with no shape so it's good we're on the same wavelength. Every time I get my brows tidied she's going to leave a thin line of hair so hopefully over the coming months they'll thicken up. After that we're going to shape them and even them out. Step by step ey?
In the meantime...
* I've been using the Laura Mercier eyebrow pencil in Warm Brunette to fill in any gaps and MAC eyebrow gel to tidy them up.
* Resisting the urge to tweeze out any strays - I'm so OCD when it comes to grooming my brows.
Here's how they look so far after about 5 months of thickening them up:
As you can see, they're already thicker (albeit quite messy!) but you can also notice that they're uneven. The brow on the right is thinner but as you can see, there's a thin line of hairs that will hopefully grow out and even them up. You can also see that the shape of them is different - the one on the left is thicker and slightly arched and the other brow is more rounded and patchy. There's honestly not much I can do about that now so after a few more months of thickening them up I'll hopefully be able to have something to work with (!!) and shape them so they're identical.
Just for fun here are some celebrity eyebrows, before and after:

Once I have perfected my eyebrows - hopefully sooner rather than later - I'll do a post updating you guys!
Is anyone else out there currently unhappy with the state of their brows?
Take the challenge with me and get your eyebrows into tip top condition by the end of 2012; take pictures of your progress too.
