FOTD January 12. 2012

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

I tried out my new eyebrow kit from NYX today.  It's the one with the stencils.  I've really been wanting to reshape my brows but needed some help.  I like the overall shape using the stencil but I feel like I need a darker color powder. This was the darkest one in the kit and I don't feel like it's dark enough.  Also, I think I just need more practice.  But this is the general shape I'd like to get my eyebrows to.  I've included a before and after side by side.  Your comments and suggestions are welcome.  I could really use some help with this.  Thanks!

 

Eyes:

Wet N Wild Petal Pusher Palette

NYX Slide On Pencil - Brown Perfection

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara - Blackest Black

i love that purple & the lipcolor. i honestly like your eye brows better in the before picture but they are both nice.

Thanks.  I'm not sure which one I like.  The After I feel makes me look like I had an eyelift, kinda raises the look of my eye.  But it does look unnatural.  The Before is more natural looking but looks a bit droopy to me.  I'd like to have a higher arch.

Same here- I like your eyebrows a lot better when they were natural!

I agree, I like the Before pic way better than the after pic.

Hmmm... I think I like the after pic arch... but I think the brow could be slightly thinner if you know what I mean. I think its dark enough for your skin tone actually. Sometimes a new look just needs time to get used to, just like a new haircut. Sometimes you won't ever really like it. I would suggest trying it again but when you use the stencil only fill in the top portion where you want the arch to happen. That's just my two cents tho lol...

I think I'm the only one who likes the after pic better!!!!! I think it makes you look much more youthful! A secret an MUA friend of mine told me is to use a lighter blonde shade to fill in that overall shape, then take a darker powder or pencil to fill in the middle areas that need it so the edges arent so harsh.

I think they also come in too far on the inner corner and are too-squared off although I know its a popular shape, I think it is just too thick and starts in too far, but other than that I think it looks quite sharp on you.

 

Sorry, don't wanna jump on or off the band-wagon here just my own humble opinion.

@Jeanarick: I think your arch happens too soon in your before and too late in the after. Find the right balance, and I think your brows will frame your face much better.

You girls are AWESOME!!!! Thanks so much for your feedback.  I think I've got the basic concept of what I need to do it's just going to take lots of practice to get it down and I'm going to have to let my brows fill in in certain places so it will look more natural and not drawn on.  Slinky you made some great points about it was too close in toward my nose and a little to thick.  That actually was one of my first impressions as well.  Amber and Makeup, I like your ideas of making the arch darker so it will stand out more and Lola, I agree that I need to work more on the placement of the arch.  I think once my brows fill in a bit and I can shape them it will look more naturally occuring and not so fake.  It's just going to take time and I'm going to have to deal with the drawn on look for a while.  I just really want to reshape my brows.  I haven't liked their shape for a long time.  Thanks again for all your help and feedback.  I knew I could count on you girls to help me get this right!!!  hug.gif
