{My Staple} Brow Guide Step by Step

I have a love/hate relationship with filling in my eyebrows. love the results but damn, the process itself is time consuming. It’s important that I don’t make the same mistakes with them that I used too; overdrawing them too wide or filling them too dark. when it comes to a full face of makeup, eyebrows aside from eyeshadow really completes a look.

ss Start with a bare brow, the easiest brow to work on is one freshly done obviously but for times when they aren’t and kind of unruly, a brow gel is ideal.

(so, E.l.F Brow Gel is a gem that I can’t believe I never paid attention too. usually if my brow hair is all over the place and fails to stay in its natural shape – its extra hard to fill them in. Versus the use of the brow gel, brushing it through, locking the brow in shape, makes filling them in a dream)

for a complete brow routine a Spoolie is required. the brush on one end is to define and fill in your brow and the spoolie on the other end is to fade the front of the brow for a natural look.

to fill in my brows I regularly use Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomade which I mainly love for being smudge and waterproof but I find that I love the quality of Ardell brow pomade too, a drugstore dupe.

Sometimes I do use a retractable brow pencil that way I can skip the hassle of sharpening. even through I prefer the finish of the pomade, a pencil definitely is quicker and easier.

sswith brow product of choice (pomade, brow pencil, etc) it is so much easier to me to start by filling in the tail end and the arch.

ss now naturally I fill in the rest of the brow using light strokes all the way to the front end.

for the next step, my favorite to use is L.A Girl Pro concealer skin tone “Fawn“, to clean and shape.

ssclean the brow up with concealer and a small brush to shape.

ss now after blending out all of the concealer surrounding the brows, I’d take this time to also buff out the front of the brow with the spoolie if it’s too dark, just to avoid a harsh front end.

Seamlessly done. believe me, one day I will wake up with my brows looking this way naturally, and I can happily skip that whole 30 minute routine all together but for now..
