All About Brows

This post has been a long time coming; I have had several friends continually requesting a post about eyebrows. The thing is brows are one of the most important features on your face . I never knew how important brows were in framing the face until I started filling mine in a couple years ago. With that I decided to share some tips and products that are great for creating the perfect brows.


5 Tips for Perfect Eyebrows

1.Picking the right shade is one of the most important parts of insuring you will have beautiful natural looking brows. If you have fair brows you should choose a pencil shade about two shades darker than your hair and if you have dark hair then you should go two shades lighter.

2.Softly outline your brow shape and fill in with feathery short strokes. Just think you are mimicking hair. You will want to start from the inner corner working your way out.

3.Always Use a spooley . Make sure to comb through your brows, doing this will keep them from looking harshly drawn on and that the color is evenly distributed throughout the brow.

4. Highlight your brows. Using I highlight shade under your brows helps to give the illusion of a more lifted brow.

5. Be sure to set your master piece. Whether you decide to use a wax or a clear gel it is important to set your brows. This insures that your brows stay perfectly in place all day long.

All About Brows

Tarte Brow Architect – This is a great all-in-one product that allows you to fill in, shape, and highlight using one product. The pencil is conveniently angled allowing for precision in creating thin hair like strokes.

NYX Eyebrow Pencil - This is a great inexpensive option for an eyebrow pencil. The formulation is not too soft or hard so you can ensure you are getting a great application every time. I don’t really enjoy the brush on this one but for this price I can use other spoolies I already have.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz- Pretty much the holy grail of eyebrow products. This is Ideal for filling in sparse brows giving them a natural look. The pencil is ultra-fine, enabling it to mimic tiny hairs. The spooley works wonders in blending out the color leaving you with full natural looking brows.

Benefit Gimme Brow - This is a more recent release, but if you are a girl who has sparse eyebrows this will be your new best friend. A brush on fiber gel will adhere to the skin to create thick and lush brows. It is water-resistant and long wearing so no worries of this budging through the day.

Bobbi Brown Brow Kit - I go through phases of using a pencil or a powder to fill in my brows. Really either option works well. This kit from bobbi brown is the best. It is perfect for travel since it contains a tweezer, brush and magnified mirror! A cheaper alternative is to create your own powder combo using matte shadow shades that work with your hair color.

Make Up For Ever Brow Seal - This is a great brow gel; it dries transparent with a natural finish. It won’t leave your brows looking shiny and doesn’t flake off during the day. What more could you ask for?
