All About Eyebrows

Hi Guys! Today’s post is all about how I do my eyebrows. I am not telling anyone that this is the way to do eyebrows, or that you should do them this way…I am just telling you how I do them! Doing my eyebrows is important to me because I feel like it helps frame my face, and I think it gives a more polished look. I prefer very natural looking eyebrows, so I don’t use a lot of products, and I don’t like them to look drawn on. I also prefer a thicker eyebrow; I do not think thin brows suit me. Here are the products that I use:

The first thing that I do is apply my brow powder. This is basically just like eyeshadow. In fact, you can use pretty much any matte eyeshadow color for your brows. I know MAC’s Omega is a good color for lighter hair, and Espresso is a good color for darker hair. I am sure there are a lot of other drugstore colors too. Just make sure that the colors don’t have any shimmer (lol) or red undertones.

I like this brow powder because it has 2 different shades, one lighter, and one darker. This powder is VERY pigmented, and you have to make sure to not get a lot on your brush. Use a very light hand while applying. I take my eyebrow brush and dip it very lightly, and I usually just mix the two colors together. You want to make sure to focus most of the color on the outer half of your brows, and use whatever is left over on the brush for the inner half. Use short strokes to get a natural look.

I have had this brow powder for over a year, and I have used it pretty much every single day, and it barely even looks used! This retails for $20 at Sephora.

The last thing I do is apply the clear brow gel. This helps to set the powder, and it helps to keep your hairs in place all day. Honestly, you don’t have to buy this kind, Maybelline makes a clear mascara that does the same thing. I got this as a 100-point-perk at Sephora, and that is why I am currently using it.

You can definitely tell a difference in person when my brows are done. It makes the whole makeup look just come together.
