Hey beauties! So I wanted to share my favorite products when it comes to brows. Here’s why:
If I had to pick ONE feature to enhance on a daily basis, it would be my brows (even over lashes), hands down. I’ll eventually write a post about my every day makeup routine, but for now, let’s learn how to get this whole brows on fleek thing:
(ps- I’ve linked every product at the bottom of this post!)
First and foremost- avoid tweezing. If you’re a beauty guru, then ignore me. But if you’re not a brow expert then seriously stop tweezing your brows. It’s easy to get carried away and before you know it you’ll have “spermy looking eyebrows” as Jessie James Decker would say. Get them waxed or threaded and always tell your eyebrow lady to “keep your natural shape.” We all went through the spermy eyebrow phase in high school so let’s try NOT to relive that…
Ok moving on…
Before I go into the details of each beauty product I want to make note that these little brow brushes are so helpful if youre trying to shape or fill in your brows. You can get them anywhere! (they’re free at Sephora). Just use to the spoolie (congrats, you’ve just learned a new eyebrow term) to brush your brows out and make sure they look smooth and ready to be shaped!
If you have beautiful thick full brows, then kudos to you girlfriend. We all weren’t born that lucky.. See below for my go-to brow products that I seriously cannot live without (I’ve tried to link 2 versions of every product- a drug store version and a spurge version. So to all my girls on a beauty budget- you will love this post 🙂 )
Eyebrow Push-Up Bra
Ok so this double sided pencil is the mother of all beauty products. I buy it in bulk (I’m not kidding). It defines, highlights and shapes your brows. This is the perfect pencil for those of you who don’t have perfectly shaped brows. The beautiful thing about the pencil is that it caters to all eyebrow shades! The harder you press, the darker it will come out. Use the darker side to create your shape and full in (don’t press too hard in the inner center of your brows or you’ll look like Frida Kahlo…) and use the lighter side to highlight underneath the brow bone. I also like Anastasia Beverly Hills Wiz Pencil- this would be more of a splurge.
Next uppp: WUNDERBROW! AKA- the most amazing beauty product ever created.
So my WUNDERBROW bottle is completely empty…now you know I’m not lying when I tell you I love it. At first I was hesitant to buy it, because it was all over Instagram and I thought it was some scam product. One day I was browsing around CVS and I thought what the heck why not give it a shot. OHMIGOD. If only I found this sooner!!! This is why WUNDERBROW is so amaze:
YOUR BROWS WILL KEEP THEIR SHAPE FOR DAYS!!!
It’s water proof, so even if you wash your face, your brows will stay. You can do a little happy dance now..
My point- Before I found WUNDERBROW I would constantly be touching up my brows (mine are not naturally perfect in shape). Once I started using WUNDERBROW, I could leave them for what seemed like forever and they would look so perfect! Also great for summer time when you’re at the beach, swimming in the ocean and on the go!
Next up- Milani Stay Put Brow Color
Milani Stay Put Brow Color is another one of my go-tos. It comes with a dual- ended brush, part spoolie/part applicator (which is fabulous). I wear the Natural Taupe color- they have 8 different shades! A little product goes a long way. Don’t go crazy or you’ll look like Freda again.
(Anastasia’s Dipbrow Pomade is similar).
Last but not least- Naked Palette by Urban Decay
If you’d rather go the powder route, I love Urban Decay’s Naked Palette (obviously.. considering how beat up mine looks with no cover and half of the shades gone 😆). It’s $54 but I bought it before college and I’m still using the SAME palette so it’s such a great beauty investment. It’s important to find the shade that works for YOUR brows. I like Naked and Buck- always go lighter than you think (or Freda…). I love this Naked Palette because it has so many neutral tones. Anastasia’s Brow Powder Duo also has some great shade choices. If you like the idea of using powder instead of WUNDERBROW or Milani’s Stay Put Brow Color, I would suggest using the Eyebrow Push-Up Bra to create a light shape, fill your brows in with a shadow, but go over them with a brow gel so they stay! I love Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Clear Brow Gel.
Here is a helpful video on how to full in brows- I use different products- but I fill my brows in the same way this girl does, so I think it’s a great video!
I also love this Jessie James Decker video because I think she’s so fun. Go to minute 10:40 for brows!
I hope this post was helpful! Comment below with any questions or feedback, I’d love to hear from you!
