Thank you then :D

About my fringe, I spray water on it and use a comb to make it lay, and then I spray hairspray on the comb and shape it the way I want to.

I hardly ever wear colour cosmetics anymore, even though I have a ridiculous amount of make up. That said, it was NYE and if that's not a great reason to colour your face in then I don't know what is. I even wore glitter in my hair. :o

Dodgy shot of me and the flash makes me look ghostly, but it shows the eyes quite nicely.

Face is Revlon Photoready foundation and MAC Stereo Rose MSF with some New Vegas to highlight
Lips are just MAC Skew and Who's that Lady lip gelee.

I've never, ever done anything to my brows...I only started to shape them about 6 years ago (seriously) & they've never looked that good. I'm not blessed in the brow department.

Aww bless you ladies but trust me, it's taken me years to get brows that I am happy with. Like Lorny I used to shave mine off and draw them in for years, to the point where when I was about 25 they just wouldn't grow back in anymore no matter how long I left it. I had to use an eyelash growth product to get them to come back in and it took months. Even now I have to draw them in daily as they are still too sparse for my liking and too fair to match my hair. These days I just tidy up the outside edge underneath and pencil them in every day to define the shape. I would KILL for naturally full brows that grew evenly of their own accord.

I seem to have caught the make up bug again though, here's my slap from yesterday. I figured I'd make the most of it before I have to go back to work today and I barely have time to wash in the mornings nevermind put make up on.

Face same as ever with MAC Pink Swoon blush. Eyes are Urban Decay Toasted and Hustle shadow and Bourbon liner with YSL mascara. Lips are MAC Hot Tahiti.

I think we have the exact same brow situation Dystopatica, and Lorny. Yours look a lot better than mine though! I'm still getting the hang of filling mine in, rather than drawing the whole thing on. I'm so much happier with them now, even if they are sparse, its my own fault! Anyway, love both your make up looks, especially the green. Lovely haircut too :D

You look amazing Kaja! Just seen these on FB and wow.

And the brow thing im in exactly the same situation. I hate levaing the house withoput doing my brows because they are just too sparse and light. I use a soft pencil and the brow powder over the top.
