When I was a freshman in high school my senior sister Megan had a birthmark that covered part of eye and upper cheek. It was a purple mark that was quite dark and visible. She was a confident, smart girl and I never once felt like she was bothered by it. I noticed anytime we had a major event she’d use concealer to completely covered the mark. When I first noticed I realized that even thought she was incredibly confident around me that somewhere in the back of her mine that mark made her feel less so. I think we all have something we hate about ourselves. Something we wish we could change, something we can sometimes change thanks to makeup or perhaps thanks to some beauty tool. I think that’s part of the beauty and magic of makeup.
Now, I HATE hate my eyebrows. I HATE them so so much. They are thick and they grow like weeds. If I left them alone I’d be sporting a uni-brow. That’s such a hard thing to type, say, and admit. Thankfully fixing this issue isn’t a problem. I either wax or thread my brows and instantly everything is well again with the world.
I’ve always been envious of girls or guys who have to fill their brows. I’ve never had to uses brow powders or pencils to fill my brows. They are just naturally full (and I hate that!). I never struggled with such an issue and if I had to I wouldn’t even know where to start.
But recently, don’t ask, I shaved a little bit of hair off my brow (mind you I NEVER use a razor on my face but it’s a rather comical story how this happened which I’m too embarrassed to share). It’s not quite at the middle but veering a little towards the right and let me tell you the struggle is real.
I can now relate to all of you who have to fill daily. For some reason, it isn’t growing back as quickly as it typically does. I wouldn’t say it looks bad and I haven’t attempted filling it yet BUT it bugs me because when I look in the mirror I see that little sparse area. There’s hair still there but it’s not as full as I’m used to.
I was going to try and use the new It Cosmetics Brow Powder. This would be my first experience using brow powder so I don’t even know where to start or what to do.
Wish me luck ok?
And let’s hope it doesn’t turn into my Benefit Brow Bar Experience.
I finally understand the struggle anyone has with sparse or thinner brows!
Have you had any beauty mishaps that you were forced to conceal or work around?
What happened and how did you hide or fix it?
