“Brow Zings”: My Complete Godsend

I hate my eyebrows. Like, actually hate them.

I always have and unfortunately I didn’t exactly help the situation…

When I was younger I had quiet dark bushy eyebrows. I never had a mono brow, just lots of hair each side that looked pretty scruffy. Obviously it didn’t bother me when I was little, but when I became a teenager it became an issue for me.

I had started comprehensive school and I (the totally un-cool girl) had to compete against the cool girls; Known as “The Plastics”. (Unsure of what I mean? Go and watch Mean Girls! It’s a must-watch movie).

So.. one night I closed my bedroom door and decided to get the tweezers out (which I obviously borrowed from my older sister). It hurt, but it felt great. I plucked and plucked away until I had thin eyebrows just like all the other girls. I loved it! The thing is, I didn’t even realise back then that ‘shape’ mattered. I thought as long as they were thin then I was safe.

A make-up comparison – Beauty Guest Post by Alice

Today, I wonderful guest post by Alice to share with you! I hope you enjoy the post, and head over to visit Alice’s blog afterwards – agdoesmakeup.blogspot.com.

Hello everyone! I’m Alice from agdoesmakeup.blogspot.com and in a nutshell I’m a teenage makeup addict/shopaholic.

Despite the time since it’s launch, the palette has remained at the steep price of £37.00, urging some drugstore brands to come out with dupes. Out of the few drugstore alternatives I’ve swatched, MUA’s Undress Me Too palette appears to be the closest match.
Lots of bloggers have mentioned MUA’s Heaven and Earth palette as a dupe, too.

My Beauty Tag

A couple of days ago, the lovely Karine tagged me to do the ‘Beauty Tag’ and I have finally got around to doing it! So, a big thankyou to Karine for tagging me – remember to go and check out her fabulous blog here.

So, let’s get started shall we?

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners and lip product or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?

My palettes and eye shadows – I could just about live with that.

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

Hmm, never be able to cut it again I think! Although, I guess having different wigs would be fine too!

3. If you had $500, would you spend it on clothes or make up?

Clothes.. Definitely clothes.
