Okay, this is was admittedly slap-dash. I was moving fast with no plan and worried about daily crap… like everything but concentrating on doing my makeup. SMH. Anyways… here it is:

Now, it’s true that when I’m rushing… I tend to reach for orange. It’s a flattering color on me, really easy to blend into my warmed toned skin, and hard for me to screw up:

Covet-Worthy: Suqqu Eyebrow Pens

These are totally worth the currency conversion. It took some doing, but I finally got my hands on the Suqqu Eyebrow pens. I saw MUA Lisa Eldridge using one in her YT videos… and fell in love. They arrived yesterday, and they are totally worth every single penny.

The pens come in two colors: brown and moss green. Now, you’d think the green would be weird for a  brow color, but it’s not. It’s actually a charcoal color that is perfect for folks with black hair. I took a picture of the green pen so that you can see how ‘green’ it is. But look what happens when I put it on:

Looks TOTALLY natural, and not like you’ve ‘done’ your eyebrows. I love them both. If I can swing the $$, I’m going to get another couple of pens, because these are totally worth a backup.
