The Lipstick League – week of 10.17.16
Question of the Week: On a typical day, how many products do you use on your brows?
My brow routine is usually about the same. I begin by using either the Chella Eyebrow Pencil or the Chella Eyebrow Cream (both in Tantalizing Taupe) to fill in my brows and give them a little extra oomf. The Eyebrow Cream is brand new (it’s light as air – you don’t feel like you have anything on!) and the Eyebrow Pencil was just reformulated (they added a spoolie and revamped some of the shades), and I’m absolutely loving both of them! Lastly, I use the Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel to lock my brows into place. My brow hairs can get a bit long and unruly, so this stuff is an absolute must for me.
If I’m going full glam, I will actually double up and use both the Eyebrow Cream and the Eyebrow Pencil to really add drama. Then I will finish by highlighting with the Chella Highlighter Pencil in Ivory Lace. I love this highlighter because it’s so versatile. You can use it to not only highlight your brows, but also your Cupid’s bow, lower waterline, or inner eye corners!

Clumps of Mascara – Matching foundation is incredibly tricky for all makeup users but it’s even more difficult when many brands don’t cater to dark skin. I’ve found 20 brands that actually give us darker girls REALLY good foundations.
EauMG – This week I’m reviewing the new Penhaligon’s Portraits Collection, a collection with major “Downton Abbey” vibes. I started the week off with The Tragedy of Lord George, the patriarch of this dysfunctional, fictional family.
