I used to think that being blessed with naturally thick and dark eyebrows meant I never had to worry about filling my brows. I went for the occasional eyebrow shaping, but never busied myself with filling them in.
Thus, up till just a couple of years ago, I’ve always walked around with dark but unfilled eyebrows, no matter the dye color of my hair or whether or not I had bangs. (Do I see you nodding?)
Now, I fill in my brows 98% of the time. 2% for the very rare times where I really don’t have time, and would spend the rest of the day feeling like everyone must be staring at my yellow-brow hair with stark black brow hairs. That’s not true, I know. With only 40% of the female population in Singapore bothering to wear any trace of makeup at all, I should look and feel right at home.
But I’m a beauty blogger now and people do come up to me and say hello so I must always look put together. *flicks hair
HAHAHA! Just kidding! Even if nobody knew me, I’d still always want to put my best face forward. I don’t mind going out without makeup – restricted to the neighborhood and I don’t give a **** when I’m sick – but when I do, I definitely will not ignore my brows now. It’s just bring responsible to my whole self-presentation.
And even though I have bangs that cover my brows, there’s always the chance that wind will blow them out of place!
Okie, let’s get going with how to lighten your brows with the Kate Brow Color. I like to call it brow mascara, it just has more meaning to it.
If you have dyed your hair much lighter than the typical chestnut-browns or reddish-browns on the heads of most Asian girls, you would probably find that a normal eyebrow pencil does nothing to lighten your brows, not even the lightest of shades.
With my hair dyed yellow-brown with very light-colored highlights thus making me look yellow over all, no brow pencil could ever cover the black of my brow hairs.
See how incoherent the color of my hair and brows look!
