This is a highly requested blog post, it is a question I seem to always get asked. I have been delaying writing this blog post until I was content with the products I was using. I have finally perfected my eyebrow regime. My eyebrows naturally are quite thick and weirdly long, (ahem bigbrowsmessyhair!?) I am not quite sure how I ignored the over plucking teenage years as I liked to experiment with my makeup; but for some reason I always left my eyebrows alone. ( Which I am joyful about now.) A little brow – grooming goes an awfully long way.
How I fill in my brows
I begin by using an eyebrow pencil – in small light strokes I draw a light hair like line along the bottom of my eyebrow following the natural curve. I then take my pencil and starting in line with my pupil, I will begin to draw lightly once again along the top of my eyebrow following the natural curve- until both lines meet at the end of my eyebrow.
To keep my eyebrows looking natural and dare I say like hair I change the direction from horizontal to vertical. I then draw and fill in very lightly hair like strokes in a vertical direction from where my eyebrow begins. Once my eyebrows are outlined I begin to shade,sculpt and define.
Eyelure Brow Palette 12.99
I have fallen in love with with this eye Brow Palette. There is three compartments – Sculpt Shape and to Define.
Sculpt – With the firm hold waterproof wax it makes it long wearing. It is also infused with Rosemary oil and sweet Almond oil to moisturise and care for brow hair which I think is an extremely important factor to having thicker eyebrows.
Shade – With a intensely pigmented powder that is enriched with vitamins A and C, antioxidant vitamin E and silicone fluid which makes application super smooth and effortless. Using the brush supplied I gently fill in my eyebrows adding a touch of colour to my brows. When shading I also go in the same direction as outlining. Shading the front of my eyebrows vertically while shading the rest of my brows in a horizontal direction.
- Define – I then like to gently sweep the matte highlighter under my brow to define the arch.
Available in dark brown, mid brown and blonde shades.
