Bow to the Brow!

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 I had been using + LOVING a taupe colored pencil from NYColor, but the entire NYC line has been replaced by e.l.f. cosmetics in all CVS’s. Don’t get me wrong, I do love e.l.f., but — what the heck!?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.

This pomade pot comes with a double edged angle brush + spoolie.

It applies so precisely!

It applies so smooth, natural + precise!

When shaping your brows, there are 2 cardinal rules:

  1. 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. 🙂
  2. 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!

  1. Brush bare brow with a spoolie
  2. Line the top of the brow with the angled brush- using just a bit of the product
  3. Line the bottom of the brow the angled brush – using just a bit of the product
  4. 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.
  5. Apply concealer below the bottom brow line
  6. 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! 😉  

XOXO

      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 🙂

    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!
