So, I’m going to do the identical on the opposite forehead, and we’re executed with the brows. I like to fill in my eyebrows as a result of typically, with the chemo, your hair falls out and filling it in covers up the little hairs which can be falling out.

Now, I’m going to be doing the smoky eye, and for this look I’m going to be utilizing Wet N Wild, which comes with all the colours that you just want to do a smoky eye, which is white, grey, and black.

And you want to put a bit little bit of the black onto your brush, and simply start proper right here on the crease. Make a ‘V’ which seems to be sort of like a cat eye. I believe it seems to be very nice. Now, I’m going to take the sunshine grey colour and apply that on the lid. And, with the white, I’m going to be utilizing this brush from Elf, which is a small brush and I’m going to be making use of that on the inside nook of my eye. Just to give it a bit brightness in my eye. Next, I’m going to be making use of mascara. I don’t have plenty of lashes, so I’m simply going to put a bit.
