Even on a 20 year old, too much looks ridiculous. I think the whole brow craze is phony looking also. I have decent brows that I maintain. I would rather not do them than to look so fake that when I talk to people they are looking at my brows the whole time. To each their own though. 


lol! I was talkiing to a sales girl in a store a couple of weeks back and her eyebrows were so filled in with such ridiculous precision about 4 levels darker than they should be and I couldn't take my eyes off of them.

I have very sparse brows, but I do my best to just darken where the hair is and then extend them to create a tail.  I use the very edge of a brush to create the tail.  For full makeup days I also use a product that has fibers in it.  Basically, it just makes the hairs show up better.  I use a very light hand with it.  It would be nice to have better brows, but some of it is a side effect of a medical conditon.  I have even started using an eyelash growth serum on them.  I hate the stenciled-on eyebrows.  I guess the up-side to having sparse brows is that I never have to pluck.

I am not talking about what you do but more something like this.

I think a matte look is very aging on women. I prefer a dewy face and I use It Hello Light very sparingly around my eyes. I love illumination products if they're used properly.

Oh, those are really fake looking.  Why is her skin ligher around them?  It just calls even more attention to them.  No, I wouldn't be caught dead with eyebrows like that.

My makeup looks neither matte nor shiny ... I use a cream-to-powder compact.  Finish is perfect.


What brand do you use?  I've tried a few and they were very dry looking.

I think in general young girls are going overboard on their makeup.  I think the trend now is to look too costumy - bright bold colors on eyes, bright cheeks and lips - I think they look so much better more natural. 


My beautiful young niece and I went out to lunch recently. Really, she was so shiny and glowing, I could hardly look at her. She was lit up like a 100 watt bulb.

Even Alberti on Beauty IQ is glowing.

I bought different kinds of this shiny stuff.  My daughter said, (this is a quote), "Mom!  You look like that guy who was dressed in foil in that movie with Dorothy".  Ha!

 

My own daughter is telling me I look like the tin man!

 

I said, "Oh!  Good!  That's the look I was going for".  Ha!

 

Never wore it again.

@Annabellethecat66,   Too funny.  That is cute though.  Yea, the tin man was a bit shiny.  Illumination is okay if it is blended correctly.  Even the Kardashians wear way too much of it as you can see the highlighter on the upper cheeks -- looks bad.  Thanks for the good laugh.  HeartCat Happy
