Anonymous asked: whats your eyebrow routine? I want dark, thick eyebrows like yours but I have no idea how to shape them or what products to use????

I didn’t always have eyebrows like this. It took me a long time to grow in my brows to what they are now. I started reshaping and growing in my eyebrows about two years ago or so. I started growing them when I realized how over plucked and short and far apart they were in photos.( I really have no idea what I was thinking looking back, honestly. -_-)They were too far apart, two completely different shapes and far too thin for my face.
Originally when I realized they needed reshaping I started growing in the front of my brows so that they were closer together. I always thought I was plucking them properly, because I was told my brows needed to be plucked like this:

This method just doesn’t work for most people honestly. Unless you have a reallly narrow nose, your brows will end up really far apart. This method will look much more natural:

It took me a while but I finally grew them into (basically) their natural shape. They still need a little work, and there are still places that are sparse and need to be grown out as well.
~Tips~

DISCLAIMER: These are just tips that I use myself, and are based on what I personally like on me, and what I believe works for me and my hair color/ skin tone. You don’t have to do the same things I do, or you might not agree with me,  but if You have a routine that works for you that’s awesome. I’m not trying to tell you guys what to do with your appearances ok? Yer all babes.

Brow Pencils:
My hair is naturally black. So my eyebrows are very, very dark as well.
Even though my hair and brows are black in color, I don’t use a black pencil to fill them. In general, black eyebrow pencil will look really, really harsh and unnatural. (but if that’s what you like, go for it. Just personally I don’t like how it looks on me)
I use a neutral toned dark brown brow pencil like these:

(I’m currently using the maybelline one, which I LOVE.I’ve never used any high end brow products. But if you guys have suggestions that’s also be great ok)
I fill them in every day using an eyebrow pencil. Use a very light hand and outline the basic shape. Then brush I through them with a spooley or a brow comb after they’re filled in.

**Follow your natural brow shape**

The only areas I completely fill in are where it’s very sparse or where I’m trying to grow hair. (There are a few places where hair just doesn’t grow properly anymore as a result of over tweezing. so I fill those in too). I use a gel after which disperses some of the product anyway so I don’t need a block of color on top of my eyebrows.

When I’m finished with the pencil, I use a brow gel to set them in place and to make it look more natural.
Sometimes I’ll use a powder or matte eyeshadow the same color as the pencil before I apply the gel. Although more recently I’ve just been using the pencil and gel.

Grooming/ Tweezing


I tweeze my brows whenever I see stray hairs, or when I think they’re losing their shape. (Refer to the diagram I provided above~~)
I also trim my brows every few weeks. Trimming your brows will make it much easier to reshape them. Often times when eyebrow hairs get to long, it can make it hard to actually see the shape of your natural brow. You might end up over plucking because of the over growth/ how long the hairs are can make it look like they aren’t the right shape.
I just comb them upwards with a brow comb, then use cuticle scissors to trim them along your brow line. (Don’t trim them too short!)

Anyway, I hope this helped! I’ll be praying to the Eyebrow Gods that your brow game will be forever strong xoxo

I hate people who use shock collars and electrical fences. Why do human fucking beings think they’re entitled enough to stop an animal from using one of its only forms of communication????

My mom wants to get our 14 week old maltese puppy a shock collar because she doesn’t want a “yappy dog”. Obviously I’m against it. Part of her problem is that when we got Yogi, she expected him to be like our dog Sandy, who passed away last year. She was really docile, quiet and laid back. I told her not to expect that from another dog, because all dogs are different and have different personalities. But no matter what I told her, she would say things to try and convince herself that this puppy is like Sandy.

The breeder we got him from are really good at what they do, you can tell that they love their animals, and they keep them all really healthy, they don’t over breed their dogs, they make sure all the puppies see a vet before you take them home, they offer lineage papers, and they even make you sign a non-breeding contract. But they’re still breeders and their job is to sell you those puppies, so I’m sure they told her what she wanted to hear when my mom spoke to them about Sandy.


Yogi is just a puppy so he still mouths your hands a lot and chew on things and barks and nips at you when he wants to play. I’m doing my best to train him properly to get him out of these habits, but it seems like I’m the only one doing this and my mom tries to teach him how to act in ways that are agressive and just plain ineffective. A lot of his behaviours will more than likely sort themselves out when he gets older, because like I said he’s still a puppy. It’s just frustrating. I don’t think My mom was ready to get another dog. We had Sandy for 14 years, losing her was really traumatizing for everyone.

She just wants another Sandy. I don’t think she’ll ever realize she won’t have that again, and getting another dog to attain that isn’t going to make anyone happy. It’s upsetting for me too, because I hate seeing her try to replace her. Like giving him her toys and stuff. It makes me so mad. i love this new puppy, and I want him to be happy and healthy. I’m really mad that she wants to get him a shock collar and I don’t know what to do about it. I’ve told her many times that there are more effective ways to train a dog, but she just gets mad and calls me a know-it-all. :(

Thank you everyone for being so kind and understanding. I’ve been going through a lot lately emotionally, and it’s been difficult for me to cope. But I’m trying really hard to get through it all.

frillypinkdreams : Thank you sweetheart. You’re one of my biggest supporters on here, honestly. You’re such a kind girl. I can’t express how much your sweet messages have helped me. I hope you’re doing well xox

picaq: I’m sorry, that must be really hard. :( <3 But you know what? There are still people who love and care for you. I understand completely how you feel, and sometimes it’s really hard to see it that way when you’re feeling alone. But I promise you’re not. I hope that things get better for you at school <3

yamneko : <33 It’s been a really rough few weeks. I think sometimes we overlook what we have. I know I have people who care, and maybe I DO need more people in my life, it’s just hard for me to see whats in front of me, especially when I’m going through a rough patch. I hope things get better for you, and I hope that feeling of loneliness goes away one day,

 k4yleen: You’re not “pointless” or anything like that, okay? You’re important, and special and I hope that those feelings leave you for good one day. Stay strong okay??

That awkward moment when you feel like none of your friends  even think about you, or miss you despite not seeing them for months, or even years at a time.

And most definitely don’t want to hang out with you. So you feel like a lonely piece of trash all the time. 

But seriously I wish I had a best friend. I mean I have my sister, and I love her, but other than Kayla and my boyfriend I don’t really have anyone else. 
I don’t even really see her that often either because she’s always at her boyfriend’s or has other plans.

Which is like, cool because I realize she has a life and other friends and stuff.

but Idk.

I just made myself really upset so I’m sitting in bed crying like a moron



Ahahaha I’m pathetic.

My puppy looks like something you’d powder your face with tbh.

i have never read anything more blatantly written by a man before

ugh no dont go for the nerds like

they tend to be really wrapped up in their stupid nerd egos and their stupid work and really inconsiderate of other people’s emotions and like out of touch from everything 

date someone who gets u and makes you happy

seriously don’t date nerds

it`s okay to go for a partner who has common interests, even if they are “nerdy”. But like, a lot of dudes who claim to be nerds will completely dismiss your nerdiness because you`re a girl and you couldn’t POSSIBLY be a REAL FAN of Scifi/Fantasy/Comics/Anime/Video Games/etc because girls only do that for ATTENTION.

UGHUGHUGH

I can’t tell you how many “nerdy guys” have “tested” my knowledge about such things or attempted to make me look stupid because I told them I watch anime/ read comics and manga/ play video games, etc

Not one of them succeeded though.

Although a lot of them with just disagree on your personal opinion about such things to make themselves seem more knowledgeable, simply because you’re a girl with an opinion.
