Happy Monday, friends!
Today I wanted to take you all step-by-step on my current eyebrow routine. One of my eyebrows is much ehm, *needier* than the other.. read: it’s thin and sparse in the most important area– the arch.
I’ve been team brow powder since the first day I ever filled mine in. I prefer powder soooo much to anything else and every time I try something different, I always come right back. I used to religiously use Urban Decay’s ‘Secret Service’ eyeshadow but I’ve also now added Anastasia Beverly Hill’s brow powder duo in ‘Medium Brown’ to my arsenal.
Although I love powder, I have had issues filling in my needy eyebrow with only powder and having it last and also look crisp. Over the years I have started using alternative products JUST where they are needed in order to create a more sculpted, balanced brow. This post will show you just how I do that!
Firstly, here is my wacky left eyebrow. It is missing the all-important arch and is also fairly short in the tail.
The first step in my process is to define the gapped area with either a brow pen or pomade. In the above photo, I used this brow pen in ‘Dark’ by Stila. I switch between that pen and Anastasia’s Dipbrow pomade in ‘Soft Brown’ depending on my mood.
The most important thing to do after applying your intense defining line is to brush the product out with a clean spoolie. Be aware of what direction you are brushing so the product doesn’t migrate beyond where you are intending it to be. If it gets a bit fuzzy, use a makeup wipe (if you do your brows first) or some foundation or concealer (if you do your brows last) to clean things up.
After I have defined the necessary spot, I fill in the rest of my eyebrow with my usual powders. With the brow powder duo, I use the lighter shade towards the front of the brow and the darker color on the tail end.
Finally, set with a brow gel. Sometimes I use a tinted one, sometimes a clear (like in the above photo) and sometimes I even use a thickening pomade. None of this makes a huge difference in the gappiness of the eyebrow since you already solved the problem with either the brow pen or pomade.
I hope this helps some of you out in the brow department! I know I’m always disappointed when I think I can simply run a thickener through my brows to create symmetry and end up lacking but I just make sure that any time I do my makeup, I also do this eyebrow routine so I’m looking put! together!
