Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

I have the brow wiz and am thinking about getting the brow powder to compliment - how do you use them together?

Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

Carolang, I basically outline my brow with the Brow Wiz and "fill in the blanks" with the powder and an angled brush. I set my brows with the gel so that they last throughout the day. I've seen a bunch of tutorials, both photo and video, floating around on the same method. Hope that helps you Smiley Happy

Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

Foundation: NARS Tinted Moisterizer or the Stila CC Cream

Concealer: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer 

Eyeliner: Urban Decay 24/7 Liner Pencil

Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

I didn't love the flared version but I definitely agree with Maybelline the falsies mascara! Way better than any high end I have used! (although Guerlain maxi lash takes 2nd place but it's more of a feminine lots of lashes look versus the falsies which is very defining and separating)

Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

Thanks!! I'll try it because I really look for volume when it comes to mascara becuase I already have very long lashes...I just want to add volume Smiley Happy

Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

How do you like the Parure De Lumiere? 

Would you recommend it for combination/oily skin?


Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

Not for very oily skin but for normal/oily combination skin or very lightly oily skin it should be fine. Just as soon as you are done applying your foundation take a tissue(they are normally double clothed) separate it so the tissue becomes thinner not smaller then blot the foundation with it. This is going to remove all the things from the foundation(that make it oily) that the foundation no longer needs now that it's already sitting pretty on your skin. 

Then make sure you set it.

Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

CAROLANG: Gawd, I don't know what what I'm doing wrong here...won't let me reply to anybody on any thread. You asked about the brow wiz+the brow powder duo and how to use them together. It took me awhile to figure out how to get use out of both of them in the best way. First I use the Brow Wiz pencil on the bottom part of my brows and pencil in a thin, defining line from the starting point of my brows to the arch. Sometimes I will pencil in the tail too if I'm going out at night or something for more definition. Then, I use the brow duo powder on the rest of my brows to fill in and tint them. I use the light side of the powder at the start of my brows and on the tail, and the dark side on my arches. Then just use the brush to blend. Sometimes, I will need to draw the line back in with the Brow Wiz after blending. Hope this helps a little..

Ashleynne: Sorry if I hijacked a little xoxo Smiley Happy

Re: Fill in the blanks on what your using now ;)

Thank you!! Ulta (last I checked) has a cool set with the brow powder, gel, and something else. I've been thinkings about getting it - I think I will try exactly what you said!


Some browsers (cough cough Internet explorer) don't let you reply to comments, so I have to get on my iPad to respond. Guess I could just download Firefox Smiley Happy maybe I'll do thsoothes weekend!
