Man: My First Makeup Routine
So, in case my cosmetic surgeries didn't elicit a visceral response, perhaps my first foray into makeup (as a man who was born a man and identifies as a man).

You're going to love this or hate this. Let me know!

If you're like me or this woman, then you too have eyebrows that are too thin, overly plucked--making you look like a hot mess!
For YEARS I have struggled with my brows because they're just too thin, which began as a regrettable plucking stunt in high school. If that wasn't bad enough, I fell into the 3% of people whose eyebrows don't grow back. LIKE EVER! Not even a little bit!
So, like a really bad tattoo, my face has been marked by nasty eyebrows, unfitting for a guy who was born a guy and identifies as a guy.
At almost 39 years old, I finally decided to take action. I'd researched hair transplant therapy and other medical options to get fuller brows. All of which were too expensive, painful and unimpressive.
As soon as I got home I played around with these products to give the illusion that my horrid eyebrows are full and masculine. Nothing like a little makeup to bring out the man in me! LOL
Since this was my first attempt at applying and wearing makeup, I can't say that I have come close to perfecting it. However, the results, after using just these two products is incredible!
I am going to take a before and after photo (tonight or tomorrow) and then upload it so you all can see. AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK! LOL
Granted, the Gimme Brow is not sweat proof, so that's unfortunate since I go to the gym almost daily! So I am still open to other products that are on the market that are water and sweat proof so I can workout without makeup running!!!!! Could you imagine?!
Here's a cool infographic that I found for everyone looking to get perfect brows. This is just a simple cheat sheet that is meant more for matching skin shape to brow shape than actual brow shapes. DON'T GO TOO THIN! Remember, thin brows age you.

@marshalledgar Hmmm....have you tried going to Ulta's Brow Bar before? I know that sounds totally crazy, but maybe if you talk with some one there & let them show you how they'd do it you'll feel better about the results!

That's a really good point. I am going to take your advice @hykaymm and do that this weekend. I'm already going there for a micro-dermabrasion. I'll just add the brow bar to the mix :)
