Very recently my eyebrows have become one of my most important and favourite pasts of my makeup routine., which I think is safe to say so has most other people. I’ve suddenly started paying much more attention to them. Personally , I go for a natural look, as not a big fan of big bold brows. This is a colab with the lovely Daisy Petals – I love reading her new blog posts and look out for them. She’s a really lovely person, so I defiantly recommend checking her blog out. So here’s how I achieve my brows …
Back in October I got my eyebrows threaded, I know that seems like ages ago and everything has probably grown back, but that created guide lines and the perfect shape, so that I don’t over pluck. Since then, I’ve just been plucking out the strays with tweezers, trying to keep the shape. My eyebrows are naturally fairly dark so they don’t take much to look fake and like draw on sticks because of this I try to stick to products that match my hair colour and nothing to heavy.
- On days when I want high intensity bold brows I will use the Nyx ‘Proof It’ Waterproof Eyebrow Primer. Now this product is crucial, but you can really notice the difference once you start using it. With this product, my eyebrows stay on all day and don’t smudge, as I’ve found powder products cling to your brows more. So I simply wipe this on to my eyebrows and wait a few seconds for it to dry.
- Next, I outline underneath my brows using the pencil included in the Seventeen ‘ Brows That’ Kit. I really recommend this kit as it comes with everything you need :wax, pencil, powder, highlighter; all in a cute little palette. This is quite hard, but creates a really soft and subtle line, which is really easy to blend out with a spoolie.
- As I used the primer earlier, I skip the wax, which I find creates thick and obvious look, which some people may like, personally I prefer a natural. Powder is really easy to be precise with and easy be built up to achieve the levels of boldness desired. Using an angled brush from Wilko, I apply the powder in small amounts, meaning I can slowly build up.
- I also find my brows look drawn on after this, so I blend the product in, a staple part of this routine, using a basic spoolie. Doing this all the powder to be even distributed and any excess easily brushed out.
- If your eyebrows are still unruly and have lots of strays, I suggest using a brow gel. These make sure that every single hair stays in place throughout the whole day. The Primark one served me well and has eventually run out, to replace it I purchased The Maybelline ‘Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara’ in Transparent. Unlike my old one my eyebrows don’t feel as hard and stuck together. This has a really unique brush shape – the only way to describe it is long and thin with a ball on the end- this allows you to arch your brows easily.
