Beauty: How I Do My Eyebrows

Hello, Friends!


Should we talk about brows and brow products today? We all have different brows, hair density, and hair color. And although some of us might want to add volume or alter a brow shape - there are no brows that are better or worse than others.


It is important to note that we should learn to embrace our bodies and features. Instead of obsessing over what they could have been, we need to cherish what we have and maybe learn how to improve them with quick, effective tricks. Keeping that in mind, let's dive into my tips on how to style our gorgeous brows.




My Eyebrows


My brow hairs are a very light brown color that is not very noticeable. In addition, I have very sparse hairs with little volume. Naturally, there is nothing wrong with my brows, but I would like a more defined shape in a darker color and an illusion of fuller brows.


To achieve the look I want, I use a brow pencil and a brow setting gel. I have two eyebrow products that I cannot live without, and I use them interchangeably. The third product is a brow gel to ensure my brow hairs stay in place.


I will share my go-to brow products in no particular order.


Anastasia Beverly Hills' Brow Definer

The first one is Anastasia Beverly Hills' Brow Definer. I love how easily it goes on and stays put. It does not smudge, move, or transfer. I wear it all day long without ever worrying about my brows.


Benefit's Precisely, My Brow Pencil

The second must-have is Benefit's Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer. It is very different with a thin pointy applicator. It delivers the perfect amount of products and allows precision to draw the ideal shape. This pencil also stays in place without moving.


Benefit's 24-HR Brow Setter

After applying a brow product, I follow up with the one-and-only brow setting gel - Benefit's 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel.





How I Do My Eyebrows


I like to do my brows after I am done with my morning skincare routine.

  1. I grab one of my favorite brow pencils and begin by brushing the hair down with a spoolie. I know it looks a bit odd, but trust me, it works. While my hair is still pointing down, I draw a general shape laying down the primary shadow.

  2. After that, I brush the hairs up and continue filling them in. I focus on creating a sharper, cleaner outline. I continuously use my spoolie as I add more product.

  3. I pay close attention to any product that might transfer onto the skin around my brows. Sometimes it happens, and I need to clean up a little product.

  4. Once satisfied with the color and overall shape, I grab my brow-setting gel and apply it over my brows.

  5. I style the first one-third of brow hairs straight up to create an illusion of volume (the part close to the nose).

  6. I style the rest of the hairs alongside the shape to create an elongated look.


And I am done! After I am finished, I have defined brows with color and attitude. The eyes suddenly become more prominent and more open. These simple tricks add life, color, and dimension to my face. I do like to add mascara to focus even more on my eyes.


 

When I just started doing my brows, it would take me some time to get the brows in shape that I liked. But as I practiced day after day, my technique got better, and I got faster. Now, it takes me little time to do them.


Let me know if you have any tips for brows. I would love to hear from you.


Happy Holidays!
