Eyebrow Routine + Dying Them

Eyebrows. When I was younger, I hated mine. Now I actually really them! The shape, the colour and the overall look of them. So I thought that now I'm at that point in my routine where I can share it with other people without having them laughing at me for how my brows look lol

For filling them in, I use the Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Sculpting Kit in 003 Dark Brown and the Zoeva 322 Brow Line Brush. I use a combination of both the powder and the wax, starting with a bit of the powder, followed by the wax. On the inner part of my brow, I use the powder on it's own to make it look a bit more natural. After filling them in, I go over them with the Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara in 02 Browny Brows, just to make sure they stay in place all day.

After filling them in, I use the Catrice Cosmetics Camouflage Cream in 010 Ivory and the Real Techniques Detailer Brush from the Core Collection on the skin around my brows to give them a bit more definition and make them look a bit neater.

And that's it!

I basically have to pluck my brows every day, which is SO annoying as I just use some simple tweezers for that and it still hurts after years of plucking them! I'm definitely thinking about getting them done professionally very soon!

A few months ago, I also discovered this amazing brow dying kit from BeautyLash and it's the Eyebrow & Lash Dying Kit Sensitive in Medium Brown, which I thought would be too light for my hair colour, but it turned out to be the perfect match!

Ever since I started dying my eyebrows regularly, I've seen such a huge difference in filling them in, as it is so much easier and quicker! And they even look good without any products on in the first few days after dying them!

Tartelette Tease Palette Dupe Review

In today's post, I'm going to talk about a huge favourite of mine and it's this Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette Dupe from Aliexpress (once again...). I swear, this website is going to turn me into a broke woman one day, I tell you! lol

This is actual very similar to the original palette and I was a little shocked when I first used this because I thought for the price I paid (about €3.00) the quality would be horrible. But it's not. It's actually one of the best eyeshadow palettes I've ever owned in that price range!

The six colours are very pigmented, long lasting, they're so easy to blend and look gorgeous, in the palette and on the lids!

The shades whisper, wink, heartbreaker and bff are the four matte shades and crush and first kiss are two shimmery shades. All of these shades go together very well too, so you can easily throw this into your travel makeup bag and you're good to go! :)

How do you like this palette? x
