Want the Perfect Brows? Try These 4 Simple Tips:
- No one has the perfect brows- even if you're lucky enough to have your own personal makeup artist on stand-by...this is because we're human ;) If they're super sparse [like mine, from years of over-tweasing when thin brows were "in"] remember that there's only so much that you can do. Avoid fully penciling in your brows for example unless it's absolutely necessary/you have no choice as it tends to look unnatural.
- Stick with light, feathery strokes and a mix of products. I go for what I call the "Brow Big 3": powder, gel, & slanted pencil to complete my brow look and it tends to bring out the most natural end results as well.
- If you struggle like myself and many others to get the right height, shape, and length when creating the perfect brows, there's an easy solution! Try brow stencils- they're super easy to use and there are several affordable kits out there that even come with additional application tools, etc. to help you get just the right arch and shape ;)
- Start with as little product as possible and build on- it's easy to add to the brow shape and look, but not so easy to take away as it means starting over...which can be time-consuming and just plain frustrating!
The Beauty Closet Recommends:
Now Brow! Eyebrow Pencil & Blender Duo
At such an affordable price-point, I know it might be difficult to imagine that such a inexpensive pencil really does that great of a job- but I've become a bit fan of ModelsOwn makeup thus far for a good reason: they're makeup tends to be on the affordable side and of a decent quality as well- which is a rare combination these days in the beauty world. What's great about this product is that's its easy for anyone to use and comes with a pencil on one end and a brow blender sponge on the other. The pencil is slanted and twists up for easy, mess-free & sharpener-free use. Comes in 5 great shades too and has great all-day staying power that's surprising again, considering its affordability.
