The Lipstick League – week of 5.6.13

PrinceandMAC The Lipstick League – week of 5.6.13

You may not know this about me, but I have a BFA in photography. So I take my photos pretty seriously, even down to the music I play while I shoot. Depending on the time of day, or theme of the collection, I always try to pick music that will match the mood. Could I have picked anything BUT Prince when it came to shooting the new MAC Temperature Rising launch?!

Question of the Week: When it comes to grooming the brows, what’s your preference? Wax, tweeze or thread?

Answer: I tweeze. I tweezed too much, actually. And now I desperately try to get hair to grow back. Sigh.

    I prefer to wax my eyebrows. The hairs seem to grow in all at once. I do some plucking to maintain in between waxing. However, I should be more diligent about it. I have never had my eye brows threaded.

    I love how Prince is all, “Yeah, girl, these colors are HOT”‘ in that pic–perfect. I usually get an eyebrow wax a few times a year, then pluck to maintain the shape. I’ve never had them threaded either, and I’ve always been curious about sugaring, too….

    I have always tweezed–a little too much, so I now know to use care. I DO believe you have a BFA in photography, as your pictures are gorgeous. Is that “When Doves Cry” playing the background I hear?

    I tweeze. Years ago, I was going to get my first brow wax with one of my good friends and she went first. And some of the wax dripped into the main part of her brow and basically the arch of her brow of her right eyebrow came right off. I decided to not get waxed then. Or ever. It took almost a year for her eyebrow to look normal again, poor thing :(

    I wax and do a little bit of tweezing. My eyebrows drive me nuts!!

    @stef Before I read the explanation for your picture I got so super excited as I thought that MAC was doing a Purple Rain collection. Wouldn’t that be sweet???

    I tweeze. But I’ve tried threading several times and each time I’d walk out of the salon with red swollen brows and it would last for hours! Glutton for punishment or just stupid! I’ve not much to tweeze, thankfully, so once they are shaped up it’s just a few to pluck here and there..
    @stef ‘s photography is second to none.. I love her artistic eagle eye and she does have good taste in music! :)

    I over-tweezed most of my life too! Now, I can barely set aside a minute to tweeze mine, so I carry a magnifying mirror and tweezers in my handbag. Like @Erin, I have never waxed or threaded my brows, either. I’m too impatient to let them grow all the way in, to wax them. My MIL swears by threading – she gets her whole face done. I love that I have know Stef, since her Art School days!
