My current eyebrow routine | How I dye my eyebrows at home

Hello everyone! I love eyebrow products and have a wide variety in my makeup collection; pencils, pomades, powders, tinted gels, pens, etc. Still, a few years ago, I discovered the magic of eyebrow tinting. Tinting makes your brows appear thicker and darker. I adore the results and the fact that I no longer need to use products daily.  Many use at-home kits to tint their eyebrow themselves instead of having them done by a professional. A dye kit costs much less than one professional appointment, and you can use it for many applications. And if you do not like the results, it fades in about a week and a half. I have been dyeing my brows, as well as my mum's, for years now. Doing my own eyebrow tinting every few weeks is easy, effective, and budget-friendly. You can purchase an  at-home eyebrow dye  or use  Just for Men Mustache & Beard Brush-In Gel  or  L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Rescue. Want to try eyebrow tinting at home?  Here is everything you will need...   Your dye of choice

Best vegan and cruelty-free palettes for gifting 🎁

Hello everyone! It's that time of the year again; time for  Christmas gift shopping ! Finding the perfect gift   for everyone on your list can be very time-consuming. When shopping for Christmas gifts, I always choose vegan and cruelty-free gifts.  Many of you ask me about cruelty-free makeup and what it is exactly. Here's what you need to know:  Vegan makeup  describes makeup that hasn't been formulated with any animal products or byproducts.  Cruelty-free  means that the product itself hasn't been tested on animals and that any raw materials used in making it weren't tested on animals, either. A product can be both, or one but not the other.  Not all vegan products are cruelty-free and not all cruelty-free products are vegan! Palettes are pretty much a no-brainer when it comes to beauty gifts. They are pretty and have tons of shades. Makeup palettes vary in shapes, sizes, tones and prices. However, not all palettes are created equal, so I’ve created a list of the
