Beautiful Brow Techniques

Hello! How are you today? Ready to get those brows going on?

I know I am! Learning to do my eyebrows has been a very fun journey for me. I’ve enjoyed learning about different brow products and brow techniques.

I’ve always had very prominent brows and never really had to use anything other than something to hold them into place, but you know how it is as we mature and things begin to change…

Upside is, we can always learn new things, and learn how to keep our beauty as brilliant as ever!

To begin this journey, I first went to my Avon website and learned about the different types of eyebrow products available and ordered several that appealed to me. The good thing about eyebrow products (at least Avon’s), is that they’re not really expensive, so it is great to get several products to try out.

I’ll go over the different products that I tried for my new look and tell you their price points as well. But first, I’ll share with you the techniques I’ve been learning along the way too. I’ve been watching YouTube videos and reading how-to’s, and practicing.

Here are a few of the first steps to begin with:

Beautiful Brow Techniques

Ahead of time tip: Tweeze and keep your eyebrow hairs trimmed. I trim my eyebrow hairs by brushing them upward and then taking my shears and trimming them at the top so that there are no long hairs going crazy.

Then, when you’re ready to do your eyebrow makeup, you will want to brush your brows with your brow brush and have them smooth and ready for product application.

You can measure where your eyebrows should begin, arch, and end, with your eyebrow brush or a pencil. Begin at your nostril – place your pencil upward. This is where your eyebrow should begin. Then from your nostril, halfway through your eye, to find your natural arch, and then from your nostril to the outer corner of your eye, is where your eyebrow should end.

To begin, start by outlining how you want the shape of your eyebrow to be. If you’re not sure, this is where practice makes perfect. Just be patient with yourself and try a little color at a time till you’re comfortable with the amount of product, and the size brow that you think look best for you. This is what took me a little while to to get used to. But I am getting more and more comfortable with having a finished brow look, and am really enjoying it.

For our next beautiful brow step, which products will be best for you?

Here is a list of the Avon Eyebrow Products that I used, and their prices:

  1. Avon True Color Glimmersticks Brow Definer – Regular price $9.00, right now $3.99
  2. Tattoo Station Proof Brow Pencil – Regular price $10.00, right now $7.00

I will tell you my favorites, and what I used each for.

Firstly, I really like the Ultra Luxury Brow Liner because it is a very fine-pointed pencil and I can resharpen it, and keep it that way. I like using it for outlining. I can get the perfect definition cleanly using this pencil, and it goes on very easily with no tugging. Do not draw with a straight, precision line though, just kind of lightly flick the pencil on to look more natural.

I like using both the Glimmerstick Brow Definer and the Tattoo Station Brow Pencil as well. They are not quite as thin a point, so they are great for filling in. When I decided to fill in an area underneath the front top of my brow that needed to be colored in and blend with the rest of my brow, I found that the Glimmersticks worked best for this job. I ordered the Tattoo Station Brow Pencil and Glimmerstick in different colors – One is more black/gray and the other more taupe/brown. I like to use them both since my hair is different colors too.

For the Pomade. It goes on very well and is brushable. I personally am not ready to use the little brush that comes with it to draw on an outline or fill in with it, at least till I get a bit better with my technique probably. If you’ve had more experience than I, you will most likely love this formulation. It is waterproof and has a 24 hour wear time. I’m going to keep practicing with this one. It has very good pigmentation, and the color I chose is a brown/gray. Perfect for my hair color.

The last step in completing a brow look is to use the spoolie end of the brow brush to gently blend and soften the product(s) used on the brow. You can do this as you go as well. If you blend too much, you can always go back and add more color where needed. But if you like it just the way it is, omit this step. It’s all about what you think looks pretty on you.

I have to tell you that after I finished my brows, I felt more spunky! I put on some darker lipstick, a bit more eyeshadow, fluffed my hair, and put on my earrings. It changed my whole attitude.

Get Your Best Brow Look Going On!

And to me that’s what makeup is all about anyway. Enhancing our natural beauty, and making us feel great. I know that when I feel like I look good, I feel good. It really changes my mood, for the better.

How about you? How does makeup make you feel? We may have to discuss that sometime too.

I hope you enjoyed my eyebrow experimentation with products and techniques. I am very happy to share my experiences with you, and I hope it has helped you in your eyebrow journey too.

Let me know which products you like best, and I’d love to see your pics!

Till next time, stay fabulous!

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Makeup Room!

This is where I report to you from, and do my makeup photography.

As you can see, I enjoy using the products that I love to share with you.

Some of my Favorite Avon Makeup Goodies

I was just talking with my sister last evening about getting my Makeup Room spruced up and ready for more in-depth photography, and told her, “You know, I’m about to turn 56 and I’m setting up to do even more makeup photography and blogging.” That’s really amazing. It just dawned on me – my age. I am very thankful that at 55 I’m still enjoying makeup and wanting to look my best – and to keep learning new things in the makeup field. It’s never to early or too late to celebrate our beauty, to appreciate it, and to work to preserve and highlight what we’ve got. I so admire those that are even more mature than I, and seeing them still shining in all their glory, and not giving up at any certain age on being the best that they can be, and that’s what I strive for as well, and to hopefully inspire others along the way.

Welcome to my Avon Makeup Room!

Celebrating Beauty Over 50!

Thank you Avon!

I love the phrase Over 50 and Fabulous! It’s such a wonderful milestone in a woman’s life I believe. To reach the age of 50 (and beyond), and feel awesome, and feel like you’re still looking pretty awesome too. We’ve raised our families and are now on a new journey. It’s pretty spectacular.

I’ve partnered with a couple of my Avon Teammates to celebrate the fact that we are over 50 and pretty darn fabulous, and to say a huge Thank You to Avon for being part of the beauty in our lives, inside and out.

I’d like to introduce you to these stunning ladies. First is one of my Avon Mentors, Keely Johnson.

Keely is a very youthful 57 yrs old and has been using Avon skin care for about 15 yrs now.

Keely says, “People always tell me that I don’t look 57. Thanks Avon!!! I use all the Avon skin care and Avon makeup. I switch it up and use different things on different days. Here are some of my favorites. I use the Rice Water Cleanser, The Face Shop Oil Anti Age Facial Serum, the Cica Peptide, the Anew Ultimate Dual Elixir, sometimes the Ultimate Day Cream, Ultimate Eye System, Anew Hyaluronic Serum, Vitamin C Serum, and Vitamin C Eye Cream. I like to use it all and switch it up, I want all the benefits of it all.”

Let’s meet beautiful Michelle Butler.

Michelle is 51 but has been told she still looks 30…. thanks to Avon!

Here are Michelle’s favorite skin care products from Avon: “I use Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser and Multi-Performance Day Cream and Night Cream. I also use Anew Ultimate Supreme Dual Elixir at night. For eyes I use Eye Lift Pro Eye System and Anew Vitamin C Brightening Eye Cream.” 

And look who’s next, meet Jfay, your Beauty Blog Hostess.

I am 55 and have been an Avon skin care fan since I was 12. My first Avon memory is during a church trip I took along with some older teenage girls. They were impressed that I was using a skin care regimen at my age, and that made a real impression on me since I looked up to them.

I now enjoy using some of Avon’s newest skin care items. I absolutely love the Avon x The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser and the Avon x The Face Shop The Therapy Oil Blending Cream. I also love the Green Goddess Facial Oil.

Avon’s makeup products are also wonderful for skin at every age. They have foundations, primers, color correctors, face perfectors, you name it. Here’s a link to all the facial beauty products. I use Avon makeup products exclusively, as I’m sure my 2 teammates do as well. Avon has fabulous eye makeups, lipsticks, blushes, mascaras, and more. You can look through my previous posts to find the products that I love and use, and you know I’ll be posting more about favorite makeup items in the future too, so just stick around!

I hope this post helps bring some inspiration to ladies our age, and a realization to younger generations that maintaining your looks is very possible, fun, and easy using Avon products. You’ve just met 3 (very happy to be) Avon Representatives who are here to represent, and to keep the Avon legacy going into the future.

Till next time, stay fabulous and always follow your joy!
