When it comes to brows, there’s no right or wrong way to perfect them – it’s important to remember that everyone has different preferences! Whether you like them tame or bushy, natural or defined, this routine is guaranteed to leave you with the brows of your dreams.
In terms of products, you’ll need powder that matches your hair colour, brow gel, a spoolie and some concealer. A thin angled brush is essential as well as a small flat brush for cleaning up. I would personally recommend the Revolution ‘Conceal & Define Concealer’, the Benefit ‘24 Hour Brow Setter’ and the Real Techniques ‘Ultimate Eye Set’ – find the products that work best for you though.
First off, I take the spoolie and comb my brow hairs upwards. I go in with the powder on an angled brush and line the bottom of my brow – I do this on both sides, ensuring symmetry and making them appear as identical as possible. I then go back in with the spoolie and brush in a downwards motion. This way I can go back in with the powder and draw the arch, matching the tail up to the line underneath. I continue to pick up powder on the same brush, going in with a light hand, especially at the front, and adding in hair like strokes.
Depending on how defined you like your brows, you can go in with the spoolie once again and blend the previously drawn lines, so they appear less harsh. This is also the point where you can use concealer on a flat defined brush to outline the brows and get rid of any previously made mistakes.
Once your brows are in perfect shape, it’s vital you set them so they stay in place all day long. I’ve tried several variations of brow setting products from the drugstore but none can compare to the Benefit ‘24 Hour Brow Setter’. If this product is too out of your price range, my next first recommendation would be the NYX ‘Control Freak Eyebrow Gel’. Brush through your brows a few times to generously distribute the product, creating either a bushy or tamed look.
Not only by following this routine will you have the best brows in the game, you’ll be left wondering where you went so wrong before. Purchase the products listed and uncover fascinating results.
