TUTORIAL: Everyday Brows using Anastasia DipBrow Pomade

It feels like every time I scroll through my Instagram feed, I see photo after photo of immaculately groomed eyebrows. But while I appreciate every perfectly shaped arch, for the everyday average girl, I don't have time to use brow pencil, powder, gel, and concealer to define my brows each morning!


In particular, the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade, which has finally made its way to Aussie shores! The creamy texture of the DipBrow does make it a little hard to get the hang of at first, but that's why I'm here! I'll show you how I achieve my everyday brow look in just three steps. #browgameonfleek here we come!

Why I Stopped Using Conditioner

Yup, you read that right. I don't use conditioner.

Some things go great together. Bacon and eggs. Lipstick and liner. But for me, shampoo and conditioner is a pair that's overrated. 

I have naturally straight, typically thick Asian hair. And every time I conditioned after rinsing out my shampoo, my hair became annoyingly slippery to deal with. Think ponytails slipping out of the ties and very fluffy hair that blew everywhere in the wind. Good luck ever getting my hair into a topknot that actually stayed in place for more than five minutes.

So I stopped using conditioner. Why?
