I know that I primarily post about applying makeup, but I decided to try something a little different this time. What if I left something out? I thought I'd start conducting a series of experiments where I leave out an essential point of makeup. For me, a full face of makeup includes brows, eyes, cheeks, and lips. Sure, this seems like a silly experiment, but there's a good reason behind it. As you know, I'm a really busy chick and, often, I don't have the time to do a very thorough makeup job. So, by doing this, I can find out which points of makeup are essential, and which ones I can skip when I'm really short on time. So let's start from the top down. Today, I thought I'd skip the brows. This is how the look turned out:
Ok, so I don't look entirely hideous, but I must admit, unfilled brows look pretty weird on me. Naturally, I have very thin and sparse brows so it's difficult to go without darkening them. I know that now more than ever, lol. Even my husband chuckled a little when I asked him how I looked. I decided against going out like this, so I ended up filling them in. What a difference!
Much better! When I was in high school, a girlfriend's mother (who was a makeup artist) had told us that brows are one of the most important aspects of the face because they frame the eyes, therefore being essential towards expressiveness. I agreed with her then and I agree with her now. Bottom line? For me, no brows = no bueno! Haha! :D
Hope you all had fun with this post! Nighty-night!
