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.
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)
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.
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..
