MAKEUP MONDAY











 BEFORE



 AFTER



Filling in your brows is something I think is essential to completing any makeup look. I used to think "I have enough brows I don't need to color them in"...I also didn't want to look like I sharpied in my eyebrows. Now, I feel incomplete if my brows are not done. After all - your eyebrows help to frame your eyes. I get my eyebrows groomed/waxed about every two weeks by Linda at The Best Little Hair House. She keeps them in great shape! 

My favorite products to use on my brows are by Anastasia Beverly Hills. She really knows a good brow! I've been using the Brow Wiz in Taupe  - linked HERE - the longest. It is great for precision because it is a tiny little pencil that you can use to make hair-like strokes and fill in any gaps. Sometimes I will reach for the Dip Brow Pomade in Blonde to fill in my brows. The dip brow really does stay put all day! It is waterproof and smudge proof. I will typically apply it with a Morphe M 413 brush or a MAC 266 brush, both are angled brow brushes - the Morphe brush has a spoolie on the end which is helpful to comb through your brows. My favorite of the three Anastasia products I use right now is the Brow Definer in Blonde- linked HERE - it is so easy to use! The brow definer has a triangular tip which makes for easy and quick application. Both the brow definer and brow wiz are retractable which is nice because you don't have to sharpen the pencils you can just twist ;) All of her brow products come in a variety of different shades. 

When applying product to my eyebrows I use a very soft hand. The goal is to keep them as natural looking as possible. The difference between no product on my eyebrows and product on them is subtle but needed. That is the whole point of make up right....to enhance your features! Usually I will start coloring in my brows by outlining the bottom of my brow. I typically do small quick "hair like" strokes and fill in any gaps I see and toward the end of my brow I use a little firmer hand and draw the tail in. I finish off my brows using Glossier Boy Brow in Blonde. This stuff is amazing! It helps to keep your eyebrow hairs in place all day. It is like "setting" your brows. The wax is colored so it does add a bit of color and it also adds some thickness to your brows. It looks kind of like a little mascara wand for your brows. I really really enjoy it!
