Smile on a Rainy Day

I know grooming my eyebrows is important, but I've always had bangs so except cleaning them up a bit, I've never done much.

This morning while it was raining and I was stuck home, I gave it a try. Just 15 minutes and I saw a huge different in the way I looked. I pinned up my bangs just so you can see my brows, filled in with a dark matte brown eyeshadow. What do you think?

I used:
Shiseido bronzing pressed powder for contouring
Majorlica Majorca blush in RD255
NARS sheer lipstick in Masai
a mix of warm taupe and light grey eyeshadows
MAC eye kohl pencil in Phone Number

I have been wanting to try a brow pencil instead of my usual brow gel for a while now... you know, for the fall. Pencils give you that soft matte look that gels can't do... It might make me look completely different!

I think bangs definitely give a younger look, but I think your forehead is so nicely proportioned that you'd look good with a middle part too! :]

omg you look SO much better without bangs!!!! blunt bangs are too harsh- you have a nice oval shaped face so you should do without em! nice!

Filling in brows definitely makes a difference :) I also didn't see the point in the past because I have thick brows but it does help.

For you though I notice your bangs hide your brows so even if you didn't fill them in I wouldn't notice :)

Hope you don't mind, it could just be my personal taste but I think a lighter, less reddish brown would suit you better? :)

I think you look great with or without bangs! You have an edgier, more unique look with the bangs, but at the same time you make it look rather soft. I looooove your camera! The picture quality is amazing.

Thanks, I appreciate it =)

Ooh, I'm going to have to look into Angelika. I remembered it looked really pretty on ya.

And I will! I used it just a minute ago so that I could tell you about it. It feels really nice going on. It's more like a gel and is super light! It glides on effortlessly and absorbs in immediately. It doesn't leave the skin greasy but your skin definitely feels really moisturized. It made my skin really soooooooft. It smell light, very natural-I believe it's rose wax. I'm going to use it for a while until I run outta samples and I'll let you know if I notice any results!
