Tutorial: Using Anastasia dipbrow

I have people ask me how I do my brows, occasionally, so I figured I would do a little pictorial to illustrate it! I used the Anastasia brow wiz pencil for a long time, which I like well enough, but I was never able to create the gradient from the inner brow to the tail that I wanted. I switched over to Anastasia Dipbrow as soon as I changed my hair from ginger to auburn red, and I was really pleased with the results! So here it is!

A Tutorial: Blue Tears and Orange Wings (kind of), PLUS Swatches from Shiro!

I wanted to do something that utilized this, utilized some bright, summery colors, and tested my lower eyelid shadow application. This coincided with a recent Reddit post from u/HobbitQueen that featured some killer suggestions for rocking statement blush. It occurred to me that since I have a camera, I could indeed take way too many pictures of my entire process of putting this stuff onto my own face, and that other people could perhaps do the same thing by looking at these too many pictures.

Thus, this makeup monsterpiece was born:
