hey! is there any way to actually thicken my eyebrows without makeup? i'm so done with having to try and fill them in every morning :(

You can try using brow serums (eyelash serums can sometimes work on brows) or use Castor Oil daily with a cotton swab which can also sometimes help promote brow growth! Castor oil is known for helping brows grow and is very affordable. Letting them grow out without plucking or waxing helps too :)

However there is no real way of making the actual hair thicker. BUT you can tint your eyebrows with hair dye to make them look more defined!

Eyebrow tinting/dying is super popular because you can give brows with thin, subtle hair more definition. Making them darker will help them look a little more full as well. You obviously want to stay close to your natural hair color and not darken them too much where it looks unnatural. 

You can use regular hair dye or a brow tinting product. I like to apply vaseline on any skin around my brow and use a cotton swap to apply hair dye and let it sit for around 10 - 20 minutes. Using vaseline is super important and will prevent the dye from staining your skin which will come off but will be a littler embarrassing for a few days!

I suffer with large pores as well!

Having a good skin care regimen will dramatically help large pores. Enlarged pores are usually big because they are filled with dirt and oil, so the best way of shrinking them is keeping your skin clean so the pores won’t be clogged and stay teeny tiny! Usually those with oily skin have large pores because the excess oil gets trapped in the pores, so keeping your skin shine free using foaming face washes, light weight moisturizers, etc will help as well. :)

Some ways to shrink pores are

1) Clay Masks 

These are great for shrinking pores because they soak up all the oil deep down in the pores. Clay masks are amazing for oily skin peeps because they keep your pores tight so they won’t produce as much oil. One of my favorite masks for shrinking pores is the Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask, only a few dollars at most drugstores or get a larger tub of it online here

2) Toners

A face toner applied after you cleanse your face and before moisturizer. Toners help remove any makeup, dirt and oil you have missed which keeps your skin as clean as possible to prevent your pores from getting clogged up which will make them appear bigger. Not all toners are the same, you want one thats aimed to clarify and deep clean the skin. Some great toners to help shrink pores are Murad Clarifying Toner, Witchazel, Nuetrogena Pore Refining Toner, Olay Oil Minimizing Toner, La Roche Posay Effaclar Toner, Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning toner or Simple Soothing Facial Toner.

3) Foam Cleansers

I mainly recommend foam cleansers for those with oily skin because foam cleansers get deep down into the pores to clean out any dirt and oil. Like I said before, clean pores leads to small pores which leads to less oil production and excess oils will clog pores and make them appear bigger. However foam cleansers can be drying so I don’t recommend them for dry skin and recommend using a moisturizer after! 

4)  Exfoliating

Exfoliating will help your skin get a deeper clean. By scrubbing away dead skin cells and the first few layers of skin you can get deeper into the pores. This will help treat any stubborn clogged pores like blackheads. When pores are enlarged usually the dirt and oil is deep into the pore so you have to scrub away any dead skin in the way clogging the pores. Check out my post all about exfoliating here!

Do you pick and choose questions to answer? I feel like mine never get answered

Yes unfortunately :(

I get many questions daily so I try to choose a few a day to answer. I might not answer a question I get a lot because answering the same question weekly will get a little repetitive. I also try to mix up topics of questions asked!

Sometimes I may not answer because it’s already in my faq, skin care tips or makeup tips links on the top of my page so please check there if your question is unanswered :)

Again, I really apologize if I don’t get to your question! I’m not just ignoring them, promise :)

Hi. I know you get a lot of questions so I'll keep it brief. My eye brows are really awkward because the hairs are really long so if I pluck one it looks like I took nine. Is there a way I can get that hecka rad eye brow look?

You can trim your eyebrows! Trimming your brow hairs is great because you won’t over pluck but still define them and make them look a little more put together. :)

There are few ways to trim your eyebrows but the method I use and like the most is using a spoolie to push the brow hairs upward or downward (I prefer upward) and trim off the ends. The amount you trim off depends on you! 

You can even use brow gel, clear mascara or a wet, clean mascara wand to stick the brow hairs upward or downward so you can see how much to trim off.
