The Lipstick League: Week of 12.8.2013

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 17 - 2013

Question of the Week – How did you arrive at your current eyebrow shape? Were you born with those brows, did you get them professionally shaped or did you shape them yourself? And are you happy with them?

Answer: – I can’t even tell you how hard I’ve worked to get this arch!  I’d plucked my brows into oblivion throughout my twenties and it was only when I started beauty blogging and seeing all the lush brows on other bloggers that I vowed to do something about it.  I put down my tweezers and didn’t pick them up again.  At first, they simply wouldn’t grow in (except for in the places that made them look untidy).  I got them threaded every month and bided my time.  After about 14 months, I started to develop the kind of thickness that I’d longed for… nothing too heavy but enough to define my face.  Here’s what they used to look like (filled in) and here they are now (not filled in).
