Random update + Big brows?

Well that awful humidity finally (mostly) passed so I can go back to gal makeup! I've been trying out the natural big brows I've been seeing all over (mostly onee gyaru focused) magazines recently....although not necessarily by choice.
A couple of weeks ago, I lost my tweezers and when I am without my tweezers my eyebrows grow like mad XD Sometimes I forget just how much of my eyebrow shape is natural vs. how much of it is plucked in. I was on verge of just threading my brows when I finally found my tweezers but the plucking I did was minimal compared to when I normally go to town on them. I just cleaned up the stray hairs and trimmed them a bit to see if the bigger brow did anything for me. Shame my bangs are always covering one of my brows in these pictures! >:|
 Slightly less maintenance. The humidity did pick up later this day so I'm worse for wear at this point XD
These brows remind me of the ones I had as a kid y'know thick, just a wee bit untamed and unarched. I guess that's the point though, to make you look more youthful?
Fuller brows in Jelly Magazine
I remember when I was a kid I used to have these big flat (yes, "flat" not a type-o for "fat" lol) eyebrows and I saw this weird beauty regimen on t.v for women who wanted higher brow arches and they'd put their fingers under their brows (your middle finger goes where you want your arch to be), then furrow their brows and that was supposed to give them higher brow arches. I started doing that and I can't say for sure if it worked but my arches are much higher than they once were...of course plucking helped too.
Before I went back to gal makeup I payed tribute to possibly the most renowned goddess of the big brows and popped on my short dark brown wig to have a small homage to the lovely Audrey Hepburn.The bangs aren't coiffed, like they should be, but I don't have the appropriate wig for this XD

A Couple Of Boring Looks

Lately, because of the heat and general weather recently, I've been trying out non-gyaru looks. So just for fun, this weekend I took some black hair with green eyes vs. black hair with blue eyes photos.
I've always quite liked the contrast of black hair set against pale skin and vivid eyes, be they green or blue, something about that combo is very striking to me. It's a very different look from my gyaru makeup but with the the air being so humid and it raining so often wearing anything more than powder, mascara, brow powder and lip stain seems like a waste since it all melts off in the heat XD
From serious to smiling XD
I had to use my old camera to take these since I'm still trying to figure out what's wrong with the memory card for my Canon and my cards for my Olympus are not compatible with my Canon. :(
Since I got a new pair of EOS Adult blue lenses and also have G&G GBT green lenses I wanted to see which ones I'd like better with black hair. I straightened the black wig since the curls are becoming a bit cumbersome, as of late. I'm sure you can tell by the pictures. I did want them a little messy but not as messy as they got!
Straightened again.
 This is also a very natural and boring look but I just don't think these particular lenses, as vivid and pretty as they are, work very well with gyaru makeup anyway (I know, I've tried with the green lenses).
I think it's because they look a little too natural on account of the smaller diameter (just not dolly enough) but I still love these lenses and want to use them!
I think I like the green a little better but I may be a little bias since my real eye color is mostly green anyway and I only wanted these lenses to even out the color and make them more vibrant XD
