I always see people on YouTube taking an incredible amount of time to outline the brows with concealer, highlight around them, and so on. I completely get it–they’re artists, creating beautiful looks for all of us to enjoy, so that isn’t a complaint by any means. 🙂 Frankly, I’m just not concerned enough to do that. That said, I do think shaped brows are very important!
My brow routine is very fast and simple. I’ve used a lot of brow products over the years, and I have found what I like the most thus far. I do like a good brow pencil, but this routine is what looks the best.
First is the NYX Tame & Frame pomade. I should probably just get rid of all of my other brow products (except for the NYX pencil, of course!), because I use this daily now, and don’t see myself stopping any time soon! It is SO easy to use as it just glides onto the brows. It is a good color match for my brow hair, too.
With the Tame & Frame, I use a slanted brush. In the photo are just a few that I use. You don’t need to spend a lot of money for a good slanted brush. One of my favorite ones, the Satina one in the photo, is one that I got after Christmas randomly from Walgreens, and it came in a set with three other brushes (and I paid a whopping $2.50 for the whole set).
My newest favorite, something I mentioned in my favorites post yesterday, is the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper. My shade is Medium to Dark Brown. It is the best brow gel I have EVER used! Everyone raves about the Anastasia brow gel. I’ve had minis of that before, and while it was comfortable to wear, it didn’t have great hold on me.
I forgot to include my tweezers in the photo, but I use Tweezerman tweezers, and my Anastasia tweezers that I received with the Lavish palette. I like to have two pairs of tweezers on hand, just in case I lose one. I try to keep a pair in my purse, since the best place to tweeze is in the car (am I right?).
Besides tweezers, I can’t live without my little brow razors. I have used these for years, and find that using these saves time and doesn’t hurt nearly as much as tweezing does, especially on more sensitive parts of the eye. If you’re careful, you can still maintain nice brow shape.
Well, I wasn’t expecting rambling on this much about my brow routine, but there you have it! 🙂
