Face of the Day: Eyebrows on Fleek


I love the feeling of cutting your fringe, grooming your overgrown eyebrows (fringe=low eyebrows maintenance) and drawing them carefully for the world to see. 

I pluck out half of my eyebrows in order to draw it higher. Drawing them on again actually looks natural, so no awkward super sharp black liquid liner for me. I also don´t really like the full grown bushy eyebrow look. Probably will make me look very Uzbek-ish like it does to my mom XD

I used a brown pencil on the beginning and drew the rest with a black one. I usually use only brown though.
I love how my eyebrows look


I can give you a smokey eye tip, if you are not tired of reading about smokey eye tips yet: smudge a little of black pencil on your eyelid, then cover it with a ton of transparent powder. It will not move, it will stay dry all day and won´t gather inside the crease and ruin your good mood.

You know what, here´s another tip: apply black eyeshadow on the lower lash line. It doesn´t smudge like pencil, and won´t look droopy after a couple of hours. Black eyeshadow will look dramatic enough on your lower lid, it also feels less heavy than pencil or liquid eyeliner.


Fun Fact: I actually say "on fleek" a lot. After I learned that this is what the cool kids say today it would make me feel very old not to overuse the expression...

Now to have my vacation at last! We are going to Copenhagen for a week on monday to see a dear dear friend. More adventures to follow as we get back.

Have a wonderful summer everyone!

  1. Your eyebrows look very nice actually. I like high arched eyebrows, but they need a lot of maintenance. I pluck them and after 2 days I see little hair growing again! Thanks for the tips! Oh and have a nice vacation in Copenhagen. An uncle of mine lives there and I'd like to go, but haven't found the opportunity yet

  2. Lovely soft look on your makeup. I really like your brown hair and fringe, it suits you. One of the most foolish things Iv'e done is to pluck away my poity arch in my early teens, because I wanted the rounded arch eyebrows that was more popular in the nineties :-(. The hairs wont grow back.

  5. Hi Maria! I apologize if I'm double-posting this comment; I'm not really sure how blogspot works.

    Anyhow, I found your blog by accident while Googling for images of '80s Berlin, and I've really been enjoying reading through your old posts. You have a warm writing style and your life is very interesting! Thanks for sharing your adventures with the world.

    I hope you have a good time in Copenhagen! I look forward to reading more.

    xoxo from the USA,
    Lizzie
