Hi my lovelies!
I’m here with my brow routine today. I have struggled with my brows for ages now. I’ve got very problematic brows with lots of sparse areas and I’ve also over plucked at one point. I’m finally now in a pretty happy place with my brows. I’ve discovered some products that really made a difference. I’ve got some requests for a brow routine so I thought this was a perfect time to do a post on it!
So here are the products I use:
Royal and Langnickel spoolie
Bloom Flat brush: something I picked up for 5 bucks from a discount store!
Anastasia Beverly HIlls Brow Wiz in Brunette: This thing has changed my brow routine dramatically. It has a very thin tip which makes it so much easier to do an outline and also do nice hairlike strokes. The color does not have any redness or warm tones so its perfect for the brows.
Whitening Lightning Brow Bar To Go: Really great brow powder and it also comes with a brow wax. I used a coupon code and bought it for about 12 bucks (70 percent off). I don’t have the coupon code any more but a lot youtube gurus have coupon codes in their name so you can check that out.
Nyx Above and Beyond concealer in Beige: any creamy concealer will do. I sometimes use the Mac Studio Finish concealer (nw25) as well.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel: This brow gel is amazeballs! It does not make your eyebrows crispy and it doesn’t flake. It really locks the brows in and they stay put for a long time.
PICTORIAL TIME! :
I’ve minimized the photos in the pictorial because they were becoming a bit repetitive but I’ll explain everything to you.
Step 1 : After brushing your brows in an upward motion with a spoolie, outline your brows with a pencil (Anastasia Brow Wiz). If you have really nice full brows you don’t have to outline the top part but for me I have to do both. The outline is the most important because it determines the shape of your brows. Make the outline a bit more soft in the inner corner.
Step 2: Fill in your eyebrows with the brow pencil in soft upward strokes moving across. Be a lot more gentle in the inner part barely touching the skin because we don’t want harsh lines in that part. After the brows are filled, I go over them with a brow powder (Brow Bar To Go). This is optional. You can also apply a brow wax before filling the brows in. This is optional as well.
Step 3: This is my favorite part. Clean up the area along the outline with a creamy concealer which is lighter than your skin tone. This step really defines your brows making them more crisp and lifts the brows.
Step 4: The final step is to use a brow gel. My brow hairs grow downwards so its a lot more important for me to use a brow gel to keep them in place. I highly recommend Anastasia’s Clear Brow gel. It’s really hard to find a good brow gel but this one is awesome!
Technique and practice is the key to nice brow. Anastasia of Anastasia Beverly Hills came up with the Golden Ration which is a great guide to follow while doing brows. Read all about it here
Hope this helped guys. I still struggle with my brows sometimes. Its okay to not get it perfect everytime. And remember you’re brows are sisters not twins! XO
