If you are wondering what on earth eyebrows have to do with Whisking and Dining, you didn’t read Blabber-Mouth Camera! As food bloggers, lifestyle vloggers, or simply the millions of selfie lovers capturing their everyday life on social media, it helps to have a few tricks up your sleeve before you point the camera in your face!
Having spent the past five years creating food stories, often with me in them, the rude awakening I discovered before filming anything, was that I needed to step it up on self-maintenance before polishing the silver, ironing linens, scrubbing veggies, or dressing the proteins for a shoot. This realization and the fact that I have some great beauty-hacks to share with you, is what lead to this segment I decided to write. I might kick myself later, with embarrassment, after revealing the goofy side of me!
Why color your brows if you already use brow pencil or powder? Simple. Because it wipes off, sweats off, rubs off (poor guys will have it all over their shirt when you give a hug), and under studio lights, it melts off! Color your brows twice a month and forget about using daily maintenance other than to brush them! It’s easy, inexpensive and it will take you under 30-minutes, start to finish.
PENCIL AND POWDER WIPE OFF!
OH! Why trust me with this tutorial? Easy! I was a hairdresser for 40-years, still licensed and still take care of friends, family and MYSELF! For lots more Beauty Hacks, better known as Professional Beauty Tips, visit BEAUTY SHOP BUZZ! (Some girlie secrets there and a great gossip book I wrote myself, are there too: CONFESSIONS OF A HAIRDRESSER)
First, let’s get some supplies. The store I would suggest purchasing your supplies from, is perfect for all you will need: Sally Beauty Supply. There are over 3,700 stores and online shopping. (And no, I get nothing from them for informing you haha.) Everything you need can be found here, and it is inexpensive! Once you purchase the supplies, they will last nearly one year and cost under $10.00! Hah! Bet you paid $25.00 for your brow pencil.
- Color – one shade darker than your hair color. If you have black hair, stay with black. If you have gray hair, select a color similar to the color you had before turning gray.
- Peroxide – 10 volume only, 4 ounces
- Glass cup – the perfect cup is the one they sell for mixing acrylic nail chemicals in.
- Brow Brush – an old mascara brush or Sally has them in a package to purchase
- Headband to keep your hair back
- The video tutorial above will walk you right through the process of selecting a color, mixing, applying and washing up!
Mix equal amounts (size of a lima bean) of color and developer/peroxide, in the glass cup. Apply a little cleanser around the eyebrow area (not on them), to make cleanup easier. Apply the color with a Q-tip carefully on the brows. Brush with the brow-brush, then apply a second coat of color. Wait 15 minutes and wash off!
Ugly? Yep! This gets goofy ugly before it gets gorgeous!
