There is something called Li-Brow. It’s the sister to the more popular Li-Lash. It’s a serum that you put on your eyebrows and it helps stimulate hair growth. I’ve had clients that even put it on spots on their scalp where they are balding! Try it! It’s a little pricey, but hey, it’s worth it! It really does work! People swear by it

Please don’t ever use 30 volume again?? Especially for that long. 30 vol on anyones hair will do that unless it’s kept on for short amounts of time.
Next time (since you have thick hair) use 20 volume, and check it after about 15 minutes. Take a towel with water and rub the lightener off a small piece of hair (from the place where you put the lightener FIRST. First highlight, etc). If it is the level of lightness, check the last and make sure they match. If so, rinse out. If the last highlight isn’t light enough, start taking out the highlights from the beginning. Just spray water on the lightened pieces and rub it off. Continue to let the rest sit until the reach the level you want and either continue to pull out the highlights, or if they all match just wash them all out.
NOW- to fix your hair. GET A RECONSTRUCTOR. Or a deep conditioner. You need to nourish the hair. I can’t guarantee that will fix that though. Your best bet is to go to a salon, have them look at it, do a reconstructor and possibly cut some hair off. They may suggest to color your hair- but please have them do it at a salon. The last thing you want is for your hair to get WORSE.
I wish you lived here so you could come see me and I would fix it!
I hope this helps darling. I know it’s scary- but it’ll be okay. Just trust what the stylist says. And try to tell your friend my advice for how to highlight your hair :) Let me know if you have more questions!

Not at all :) My best friend’s mom actually has long hair and it’s beautiful and is definitely age appropriate. I think it’s just a stigma that all middle aged women HAVE to have short “mom” hair.
So I say rock your long hair!

I also dealt with bad acne when I was younger- so I definitely feel your pain! So I’ll give you a beauty regime that worked for me- and we’ll see if it helps you!
Most people would say to use a concealer. I personally think that using concealer with acne is a bad idea. I felt like it looks cakey and makes the pimples stick out even more. The foundation will help cover, but more than anything it’ll just give you a more even skin tone- which will help disguise the acne.
As far as foundations go, you want to use a WATER based foundation. You want to do that because A) you won’t get as many clogged pores and B) because the the oil in regular foundations will make your skin look shiny and will make your acne more prominent. I used a foundation by Chanel. It is a bit pricey, but it lasted me a long time. Otherwise, MAC and Max Factor, and many other brands carry water based foundation. It’ll say right on the bottle.
I used a foundation brush to apply the foundation because it helped blend well into my jawline and it was more natural looking, but you could also use a sponge. Just make sure to either wash the foundation brush, or change your sponge every few uses.
After applying foundation, apply a loose powder. That will help set the foundation for the day and it will decrease the look of shine- so it looks more like a matte finish.
After applying the powder, apply your blush. Now, when I had acne I hated wearing blush because I felt like it just made my acne pop out again. However- if you DON’T use blush, you look washed out. SO, to pick out your blush, look for something BRIGHT. It sounds crazy, but it looks more natural on your skin. Sweep it lightly on your cheek bones and into the apple of your cheek. Thats it. Don’t put tons on- just enough to give you color.
I also used a bronzer to define my cheeks. For that, just take a SMALLLL amount on a brush and tap it underneath your cheek bones. I also put it on the sides of my nose to make it appear smaller- but that’s personal preference.
Finally the eyes. With those, it kind of depends on the person. I used a lot of eye makeup because I wanted my eyes to pop. But since you don’t wear makeup too often, if you wanted to you could just put on a little mascara and eye liner and be good to go.
If you want me to- I’d be glad to write out an eye tutorial but I figured I’d focus more on the foundation and skin aspect since that was your original question.
For everyone else reading this- some things I’m telling her to do don’t necessarily follow along with the other makeup tutorials I’ve written in the past. This tutorial is for people with acne. One isn’t better than the other, they just have different purposes. If anyone else has any questions feel free to ask!
And forty—2 I hope this helps you. Let me know if it isn’t working or if you do want that eye tutorial. I’m happy to help in any way that I can!
