It’s no secret that this generation has a serious obsession with eyebrows…as they should! Eyebrows frame your face. With a little maintenance and a fabulous brow product, you can completely transform, enhance + polish your everyday look!
I’ve tried my fair share of brow products in the past — both high + low end. I had been using + LOVING a taupe colored pencil from NYColor, but the entire NYC line has been replaced by e.l.f. cosmetics in all CVS’s. Don’t get me wrong, I do love e.l.f., but — what the heck!?
When my pencil was reduced to a nub, it was time for something new. So, I picked up Milani’s Stay Put Brow Color.
When shaping your brows, there are 2 cardinal rules:
- It is SO important to work with what you’ve got! Do not try to draw in a brow that doesn’t exist. If your brows don’t arch, don’t force them to. Learn to love + embrace your unique shape! They’re exclusively yours. 🙂
- Use a product that is a shade or two lighter than your natural brow hair color. You do not want to use something that is too dark. A lighter product *will* fill in nicely, I promise. You want them to look as natural as possible.
Below is a quick breakdown of how I like to shape + fill my brows with Milani’s Stay Put Color. This can apply to pencil users as well!
- Brush bare brow with a spoolie
- Line the top of the brow with the angled brush- using just a bit of the product
- Line the bottom of the brow the angled brush – using just a bit of the product
- Fill in the brow, but leave the beginning bare. You don’t want harsh lines or too much product – it should have a fading effect.
- Apply concealer below the bottom brow line
- Blend concealer to create a smooth line + set the brow with a clear mascara or a spritz of hairspray on the spoolie!
Shaping + filling your brows is a quick, small effort – that’ll make a BIG difference!
What brow products are you loving lately?
And random Q, but do you have a favorite eyebrow?! I definitely have a better relationship with my left one! 😉
I love my right brow 😉 Haha, and I use Anastasia Brow Wiz, it’s my first time ever using such a product and I’m pretty happy with it thus far.
P.S. Your brows are amazing!!
Haha, there’s *always* a favorite brow!! Anastasia Brow Wiz is awesome, I have used (+ loved) it before too! And thank you – I didn’t really start filling in my eyebrows until maybe a year ago? If that! It makes such a difference. Thanks for reading, girl! XOXO 🙂
Great tips!! Thanks 🙂
You’re very welcome, thank you for reading! XO
This product looks awesome!! What shade is that color in?! ❤️
It’s a great brow product! Shade is “Medium Brown” 🙂
I am definitely going to have to check it out, thanks lovely ❤️
Of course, thank you so much for reading! XOXO
You are so welcome ❤❤
I was just getting ready to ask you about your brows! They are amazing. I had an “oops” a few years back and my eyebrows have never grown in the same. So, pencil is what I’ve been using. BUT I would like a more natural look, and this looks like good stuff. Great illustrations!
Thank you! And ugh, that’s the worst! It’s so hard trying to grow them back in + really upsetting when they just don’t. You can definitely fake it though! Follow the natural pattern + lightly draw them in with light/whispy strokes!
Thanks! 🙂 And yes, they just don’t want to grow back. I scared them lol 🙂
I’ve tried filling in my brows and have failed miserably. You do a wonderful job. Your brows look great! 😊
Thank you so much! It’s definitely a trial + error process. I’ve used some products that made my brows look downright horrendous. Don’t give up!! 🙂
You have fabulous brows girl!! I have to admit- I have never tried a brow product before, but now I really want to!
Thanks, girl! Give it a try! I honestly only really started shaping/filling them about a year ago. It’s really easy to do + I think you’ll be surprised by how much a difference it’ll make. XOXO
Thank you for this great post, my brows are the bane of my existence, so this post was very helpful. Xxx
Haha aww, I’m glad that I could help. 🙂 Don’t give up! You have to find the right product for you – I’ve had my fair share of brow flops! XOXO

I also need to just the Milani pomade! It looks amazing! I love Milani products, but never tried this one! I also def have a better relationship with one of my eyebrows haha! It is definitely my right one. I can always shade it better and it just looks so much nicer. I always take my pics from that angle haha!
Per usual, you’re too sweet! Thank you, thank you! Definitely try it out, it’s a great product! And you’re so funny, I always take my pics from my good angle too. LOL XOXO

I’m agonising over my favourite brow…it’s a bit like Sophie’s Choice here! Lol! I love them both but if I had to pick…left brow. Now I feel like a bad parent… Lol! 😉
HAHAHA!! No judgement. I’m sure they know that you love them both equally. ;);)
