4 Steps to Perfect Brows: Must Have Brow Products and Easy to Follow Pictorial9:07:00 AM
So recently I had a brow emergency. I NEVER EVER let anyone do my brows, but I had a date that I needed to get to so I allowed my hairstylist to clean them up. Now, I told her I just wanted the stray hairs cleaned up, just because I like my naturally thick brows to stay that way.
She took off HALF of them y'all!!
When I tell you, I literally got in my car and cried....like real tears!
So today, I am going to show you how I keep my brows looking perfect despite them being over waxed at the moment. I should also mention that I am all about natural looking brows. For me, it's important that my brows look groomed and neat, but for every day I don't typically go for what I call power brows. Before we do that, let's talk about some of my must have brow products
My Must Have Products
Royal and Langknickel 1/8 inch Acrylic Slanted Paint Brush ($2.99)This is my secret weapon! I get this little brush from Michael's Craft store for like $2.99 and it is the perfect precision brush for getting my brows perfect. I use this to fill in my brows with tiny brush strokes as well as for making the shape as crisp and perfect as I like.
This product was a game changer for me. I own this in "Granite" and "Dark Brown", but this color suits me a little better and does a better job of filling in gaps for my hair color. I also love that this last all day and does not budge. This makes filling in brows so much easier and it doesn't take a lot of product to get the desired effect. It also lasts forever, I have had this pot for almost a year and haven't even scratched the surface
Alternatives: Nyx Tame and Frame Brow Pomade
As I mentioned earlier, I have naturally thick brows so I prefer this sized pencil over the ABH Brow Wiz because its quicker and easier. This pairs perfectly with a pomade and has the same lasting power.
Alternatives: Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil, Nyx Micro Brow Pencil, Anastasia Brow Wiz
Alternatives: Jordana FabuBrow Gel, Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
1. Use the spoolie end of your brush to brush you eyebrow hairs upward. Apply light layer brow gel at this point. Since, I am trying to fake fullness at the moment I am going to leave the brushed up and the Brow Gel will help to keep them in place.
2. Next, Draw a line at the top and bottom of your brows using your brow pencil.
3. Fill in the brows and sparse areas with Dip Brow. You can use the angled end of the Morphe brush for this step. I am using my 1/8th inch paint brush for more precision. Make sure to use short strokes and a tiny bit of product on your brows so they don't look too dark.
4. Go over the brows clear brow Gel to set your brows in place all day.
*Optional* You can clean up any mistakes using concealer but I prefer to use foundation for this step. Since Foundation is my skintone and has a lighter consistency, my brows end up looking a lot more
