I have been puzzling over an introduction for this post for about half an hour and havecome up with nothing, so please don't mind me as I launch straight into my browbsession!
I grew my eyebrows back around two years ago, after shaving them off for six or so years, and they've been my pride and joy ever since. Somewhere on here, there was a documentation of the process of growing back, a little natural look tutorial. I've since updated my ritual and in lieu of some very lovely enquiries, thought I'd share it and some handy eyebrow wrangling tips!
What I use:
I'm no brow professional, but these are the things I have found work well for me. I don't touch my forehead much, so creme eyeliner is a viable option, but if you have problems with cremes, a sharpened, quality eyebrow pencil in your shade will work great!
Get a good firm slanted eyeliner brush, swipe on some brow powder but make sure to tap off the excess or it'll end up all over your face. Follow the direction that the hair has been combed in, and the creme definition, and pack the powder into your brows. To avoid a heavy blunt look, just use upward strokes.
- Get familiar with the pencil trick in order to make the most of your naturally lush brows without having to go crazy with the tweezers.
- An old cleaned mascara brush has trumped many a fancy eyebrow comb in my quest to tame my brows. You can get bags of disposable mascara wands which are awesome, not only for their wrangling abilities, but you'll have some spare to brush some coconut oil on your lashes & eyebrows before bedtime to promote thick and healthy growth.
- Brow powder sticks better to a base, like a creme liner or pencil, and maintains a neat sharpness throughout the day, powder on its own tends to move about.
- A good brow gel is essential, but if you're unable to find one, a quality gentle hair gel brushed on ever so gently is a good DIY. Just make sure to take it off with your make up at the end of your day!
