My Makeup Opinion.


Makeup YOUR mind

How makeup can start a smile trend.

I had a client who is currently going through Chemotherapy and her eyebrows had fallen out due to the treatment. Her goal was to get the most natural look, and I was ambitious to satisfy her need. I tried a few different products, like eyebrow powder, markers and pencils. I really like the marker because it's water proof and usually people recieving chemo treatment can have hot sweats. But considering we were just working with skin and no brow, the markers looked so fake and so did the powder (plus the powder would never stay after a slight sweat). I avoided doing the pencil because I thought it would look the fakest, but I grabbed the right pencil: Benefit instant brow pencil in medium to dark. Her brows looked so natural. She was so happy with the results, and her boyfriend approved of my work. I was so happy to make her feel good about her brows again, she looked great!
To shape her brows I used stencils from Anastasia, petite arch, and it really worked well with her frame, and was the shape she once had. This product is really a good tool.
It felt good to help someone in a hard time in their life, her smile really made my day.

Share a Story with me below of a time makeup made you smile :)

  1. Aw! That's so cute :)

    I'll have to think about that one and get back to you hehe.

  2. That's a great story, it must be lovely to cheer someone up like that. x

  3. Awesome post. I have thought about volunteering for my local cancer charity that gives makeovers to women who are going through chemotherapy. This has definitely encouraged me to find out more about it.

  4. I actually had the same pencil (works great) but it didn't match my natural color.. wish they had more shades.

    I really hope she gets through her chemo and becomes 100% again. That's so nice of you to help her and make her day just a little better.

  5. BAH!!! I just wrote the hugest comment ever and just as I hit post my computer decided it was tired and shut itself off! So lets start over....

    Feels pretty good to help someone else out hey! I guess it makes you even more thankful for your health, and your sesame street eyebrows in the morning (yes... I finally got caught up on all of your posts)

    I have to say, being away, I missed reading your blog! I'm glad to be back, and can't wait to see even more!

  6. @ Corrine: So good to hear from you girl! It's been forever! Yeah, it felt good to help out another person in the beauty aspect of my life :)

    @Funny face beauty: I wasn't even aware they had charity like that, I just looked into my local one as well. I'm excited to learn more about it too ;)

    @Kali: Me too, I could have cried when she told me her story because of all my sister went though with cancer. I really wish her the best and hope she fights through it all too!

    @all: I'm glad you appreciated the story, I just had to share it with you all. Let's all hope she does well in the rest of her therapy.
