Re: TATOOS GONE WRONG

@magicmoodz   Thanks for suggestion. Where is it available? Not sure how it would do on the face in a wrinkled, textured area...also in photos.

I’m not understanding how brows have dropped below the tattoo,

in this situation.

 

Isn’t the tattoo on the skin?

So if the skin droops, the tattoo droops as well...yes?

 


 

 

@sidsmom   Definitely not an expert, but it seems like the tattoo artist drew them in an arch not matching her natural brow shape to imitate a lifted look. As her skin in brow area began to sag w/ age, which is natural, the “arch” is quite noticeable above the brow hair. Add to that issue, the thinning of brow hairs also makes it more obvious.

@MalteseMomma   Yes, brow lifts are sometimes done when women have plastic surgery on their eyes. 

 

Ooooh, a long post after back from Charlotte. Re: makeup. It looks like we’re staying in the rose gold, apricots, reddish orange warm tones for fall/winter. Hopefully some more choices for holiday. I saw only a few shadow palettes with greys and lavenders.

These are two tried and true cosmetics used by Drag Queens you might want to look into.

This is good advice. Drag queens block off their eyebrows so they disappear, so they can paint them on. And that includes the older ones. I think they use a glue stick first? There's a genetically female youtube channel lady named Lucy Garland who does drag makeup on herself, though she is already very feminine looking. Here's a link to a video on how she covers her brows: HOW TO: COVER EYEBROWS + FOUNDATION TUTORIAL

Re: TATOOS GONE WRONG

@MalteseMomma   As I've gotten older I had to rethink my makeup many times over as my face changed.  One thing I have learned is that I need to add color more and more.  Older skin gets kind of drab, eyebrows and eyelashes fade, and lips become invisible.  The trick is finding the colors that bring out your best!

@Porcelain   Watched the link....rather heavy makeup for a 65-70 yr. old woman and definitely won’t be using that type of full coverage foundation.

 

MUA use a clear soap, drop of water on a spookiest to brush up brows and hold them in place...still for younger women since more theatrical and not as natural, for example, for wedding photos. 

 

***Glue Stick? Eventually no brows left to worry about.

Interesting dilemma. First time for everything. So happy I didn’t get that bee put on my rear 20 years ago. Lord knows where, on my thigh, it’d be now. Lol


@Shanus 

 

Interesting!  I never really wanted a tattoo but I wanted the experience of a tattoo.  When I finally decided on the design I went with four small bees -- two on each thigh.  No one can see them.

 

I plan to donate my body to our local college.  Over time the color has faded and the yellow on the bees is non-existent.  Students will gaze upon my corpse and wonder:

 

Why did she put flies on her thighs?
