Let’s talk about those eye brows….
Eye brows can make or break your face. Sorry, but it’s true! And if you are anything like me, so particular about your eye brows, you don’t trust anybody with them! Luckily I have found an amazing brow shaping genius in Laguna beach, Claudia, who works at The Brow Boutique. I went in a mess and walked out with the most perfect brows with carefully placed arches, thickness in all of the right areas and length.
Even though I have an amazing eye brow gal, I still like to fill in my brows a tad to create even, bold brows throughout my brow line.
Here’s what you do…
Start with clean brows.
Brush them out starting from the inside and moving your way outside, I like to brush the hair in an upward motion.
Take a thin, angled eye brow brush and a similar color pressed powder that matches your brows or a pencil like Bobbi Brown’s, and outline just above the top of your brows.
Proceed to shade and blend the rest of your brows, applying a bit more where the hair is more thin and accentuating your arch. The best way to do this is use short strokes throughout to mimic your little hairs.
When your brows are perfected, use a clear mascara or eye brow gel to get an exact shape and hold them in place.
My favorite eye brow kits
This all in one brow box has everything you need to create beautiful, defined brows. It comes with 2 shades (you can pick which ones you love), a mirror, angled brushes, tweezers, and wax to hold the hairs in place. It’s compact and fits right in your purse for on the go styling!
This little pencil is a miracle worker. I use to not be a fan of pencils because they can rub off or drip down your face, which is not so sexy. Bobbi Brown, being the genius she is, created a long wearing eye brow pencil that withstands sweat, wet, and humid environments. The brush and pencil combo let’s you have perfect brows and defined arches that will make heads turn.
Tarte has wonderful make up products. The main reason I love them is that their products are actually GOOD for your skin. The Amazonian Clay Brow Powder allows you great definition, especially when paired with their Shape Shifter, Double Ended Bamboo Brow Brush.
I am such a fan of pressed powders for brows, only because there is so much more control when applying. The Brow Zings Brow Kit comes with everything you need to shape the brows. For a little extra color punch, mix the wax and pressed powder together, BOOM.
This brow volumizing gel is perfect when you are in a pinch and need to apply fast. It’s a colored gel you can easily brush on over your brows, accentuating your arches, and keeping all the hairs in place!
