How to get the perfect brows... Kinda.

Aloha Guys, I don't quite know if I have told you this yet but I'm blogging every day in September, a little daunting but so exciting. Brows are definitely my facial nemesis. When I was little my eyebrows used to be quite bushy so you know as every other 13 year old girl does, I plucked and plucked until my eyebrows where no more. Well they didn't actually disappear but they might as well have. Over time they have grown back just not as full as thick as I would have liked them to be. My eyebrows are rather thin but so is the hair on my head, does that have a correlation?

Since the beginning of this year I have been having 'Hi-brows' done at a local salon (If your wondering, they are just the same as HD brows really) They tint your brows a darker colour or a colour you want, this defines them then they wax, thread and pluck away until your brows are so sharp they could kill a man. No, I'm kidding it just leaves your with even, perfectly shaped brows. This has made my brows have a lovely arch but the only problem is my eyebrows grow back too fast. 

In between waxing sessions it's up to me. I usually keep on top for my eyebrows by just plucking the stray hairs from underneath my brow to keep them looking good. To make sure I'm not removing hairs that I don't need to get rid of it's key to use a spooly brush to comb my brows in the direction of growth. If the edges look messy I like to tidy up with some Collection concealer.

I like to fill my brows in too. As I mentioned before my eyebrows are quite sparse. With them being like this, they always look a lot lighter than they actually are. Personally I like to use a powder in my brows. I've tried many eyebrow pencils and just never really got on with any. Currently I am using the Browzings kit by benefit and I apply it with a Mac 263. I just don't find it easy to have a light handed approach when they are so tiny. I have the medium shade which is perfect for my brow colour.  It costs £24.50 however well worth the money as It has lasted me since November last year!

Bottom image: My brows after I have defined the arch and softly filled in my brows right up to the tail of my brow. I finished them off with a little setting gel to hold them in place and cleared up the edges with a little concealer.

Do any of you have any staple brow products?

  1. Thank you for the post. I told you yesterday I don't know a thing about brows haha. I'm so clueless I had to google "HD brows" up. Unfortunately, there aren't any places in Madrid where I can have them done that way :(

    However I can perfectly see the difference among the images and really like the result. I'll probably go for that! Now it's just a matter of trying, isn't it? haha. Wish me luck!
