We’ve all heard the term, “brows on fleek“, and if you haven’t darling this is for you!
You may have noticed that eyebrows have been in the limelight lately, and for good reason. Your brows are ONLY one of the most important features on your face, so ladies LETS GET IT RIGHT! Amazing brows shape your face and bring your other features to life. As a matter of fact, with the right brows you can step out and conquer the world make-up free. As a makeup artist I’ve learned, your brows are sisters not twins. Meaning, they should always be similar but never the same. No two brows are the same. So take comfort in knowing they don’t need to be perfect. They are literally the only thing you can get into shape without working out.
You can choose the best shape, color and method for yourself. This is good news because its 2016 and, we’ve got options. I will walk you through what your options are, and make some suggestions. Just keep in mind, “you must never underestimate the power of the eyebrows”. After all there is an entire website devoted to helping you get those eyebrows on fleek! That’s right, Eyebrowz.com exists and it’s a total brow bible. It has everything you need to know about eyebrows, brows are that serious!
There are various ways you can choose to build your brows.
– Step One: always decide the shade (color). You want to stick with natural shades; black is not an option. Like NEVER.
– Step Two: decide what method you want to go with.
Let’s see there’s penciling them in. Although using a brow pencil is the most common method, it is also my go to.
Once you get it down, its quick and easy. Ok, so let’s get this out of the way now. The most popular brow products are made by Anastasia Beverly Hills. Their products are pricy but I think we all know; it’s not the size of the boat, it’s the motion in the ocean. So, it’s not the brand or the product, its how you apply it…bad analogy? So practice makes perfect ok girls lol. There’s Anastasia Beverly Hills brow definer (pencil) I use dark brown. It comes with a spooly at the end which is absolutely necessary. It is used after using the pencil to brush through those brows; which breaks apart any harsh lines and gives your brows a more natural hair like appearance.
For the more advanced gal there is brow gel. The most sought after brow product on earth. You know those girls with the brows that you are pretty sure were beat from the Gods? Well, she uses the award winning Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade (gel) and their angled brow brush. I use it on my good days to effortlessly outline, fill and texturize my brows. It may take a little longer but, its smudge free and glides on easy. Plus, they have lots of shades to choose from. They even have clear, like that’s how amazing this stuff is, it doesn’t even need color to work. I’m kidding, it comes in clear for grooming purposes. Moving on.
Let’s see, for the lazy, I mean busy girls out there that still want natural and nice there’s brow tinting. Yes, tinting…. check it out
Sure, it sounds a tad bit high maintenance but, it lasts up to a month.
Lasts but, not least if you want those brows super fleeky there is brow extensions. Which is as natural as it gets. It’s the latest beauty trend (you’re welcome). Like lash extensions it is a way to get the brows you’ve always wanted. They begin by shaping your brows with a pencil. Followed by placing individual hairs one by one. It is absolutely painless and lasts up to 4 weeks. If you want to remove them it’s simple and easy. They may just be what you need.
So ladies, here’s to a Browful Tuesday…get up, pour yourself some coffee, groom your brows and pull yourself together. Let’s have a great week. May your coffee be as strong as your brow game.
