We all know brows speak louder than words – so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite products and tricks to make sure your brows are on FLEEK!
Firstly, PLEASE make sure you get your brows shaped professionally! I’ve been doing this for over 10 years now (OMG!). I personally get mine threaded because I break out when I get them waxed but waxing is a great option as well. I’d recommend going in with a few pictures of the brow shape you are trying to achieve – then the specialist will tell you if it is a shape that can be achieved with your brows. I also get this done every 2-3 weeks but I have friends you can go twice as long and still maintain a fresh brow. For products I SWEAR by Anastasia Beverly Hills, she is THE brow guru and her products have never let me down. They last all day and for me that is a must as I do my makeup around 7:30am everyday and need it t last until 6pm. I mean can you imagine walking around with half of your brow smeared off? LOL – Tragic!
After my brows have been freshly threaded – this alone feels amazing, it’s like you have a new face, which I know is a bit much but really it’s like wearing makeup vs. going barefaced. Any who I like to accentuate the shape by using either the Anastasia Brow Wiz or Brow Definer (sometimes I use both if I need a little extra oomph). I achieve this by following the natural shape of my brow. Then I’ll go in with the Anastasia Dip Brow pomade in ebony, but only on the tail of my brow as this part doesn’t grow in as well as the rest of my brow. Be careful with this one! You can easily add wayyy to much product. Make sure you brush through your brows as you apply product so that the product evenly distributes and you don’t have product build up in one area. Lastly, the thing that pulls it all together is going underneath your brow with a brush a concealer one to two shades lighter than your skin complexion and cleaning it up – even if your brows have been freshly threaded, tweezed or waxed this really emphasis the brow bone. My favorite concealer to use is the MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer as it is a thick consistency and does a wonderful job covering any hair and works wonders on blemishes as well.
Hopefully these tips help you with achieving your best brow yet! Please let me know if you have any other specific questions or any other things you’d like me to discuss.
For those with similar complexions I’d recommend chocolate, dark brown and/ or ebony in all Anastasia Beverly Hills products – it all depends on how dark you like your browns and how much brow you already have and in the MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer NW40!
