How I make my brows look as if they’ve been threaded.

Hey there! Apologies for my lack of posts; you’d think that i’d have a lot of time what with me finishing with University, but i’m busier than ever *sigh*.
I’ve always loved how a threaded brow looks, but like a lot of women (and some men O_O) I refuse to sit in a chair for seven minutes while a woman hacks away at my precious precious stray hairs. I’ve threaded my eyebrows once…and it was once too many. THE PAIN! i couldn’t hack it, yet I don’t pluck or wax my eyebrows either so what’s a girl to do?

I was given a video tutorial on how to shape brows by the lovely Ruki over at http://www.lovekiksy.blogspot.com/ and followed the video step by step. Now, PLEASE BEAR IN MIND that this is the first time i’ve done anything like this, I KNOW the ending result looks a bit drag-queenish, but i’ll be better! So, without further ado:

These are my brows before (scary, I know):

I then used MAC’s brow set to sweep my brows upward and away from my nose:
I then used an eyebrow pencil from Sleek to fill in my brows (not outlining them, filling in the inner gaps):
I then used a MAC concealer which is a couple of shades lighter than my skin tone and a concealer brush:
…and then outlines my eyebrows in a perpendicular fashion:
After doing this, i then began to blend the concealer in downwards, with a a slanted brush until it looked like this:
(Tried to) tidy it up a bit, and this is the finished result: 
Yep, I know my brows are uneven, being left handed kinda has its drawbacks LOL. However, i think it’s an OK attempt…hopefully i’ll get better the more I do it! What do you think?
