The Layover: LONDON

London has been at the top of my list for some time now and I finally got to see the beautiful place on my way back home to Angola from The United States. I was lucky enough to have an 8-hour layover in London and world’s nicest taxi driver suggested a Hop-On Hop-Off tour! It was definitely worth while, plus I made it in time for my flight home :)

BROWS

Deep Dark Brunette Eyebrow Pencil by MAC

NW45 Studio Finish Concealer by MAC

208 Angled Brush By MAC

Gimme Brow Gel by Benefit

1.
IMG_2904First I brush my eyebrows with the opposite end of the eyebrow pencil, brushing the inner portion of my brows upwards and slowly following the natural shape of my brows towards the ends.

2.IMG_2906Then I fill in my eyebrows with the eyebrow pencil. I use heavier strokes at the bottom and lighter strokes on top. I also use the brush end to blend out the pencil lines.

This is when it gets wild! I use the concealer and the angled brush to outline my brows to give it that freshly done look. I prefer to use a concealer that is a few shades lighter than my skin tone. Some may prefer to only outline the bottom or to use a shade closer to the skin tone for the top, but I eventually end up blending it in with my foundation so this one shade works for me. This step can certainly be skipped but it does give it that extra oomph! At least I think so :)

4.IMG_2908Blend like your life depends on it!

Finally, I add the brow gel just to keep the brow hairs in place as well as to make the hairs more visible so that it looks more natural.. cuz you know.. this is clearly natural lol

AND THAT’S THAT!! THANKS FOR STOPPING BY :)
