Troubleshooting For Brows :: Part 2

Ok so yesterday we covered a few common pitfalls that occur during the brow polishing process.  Today I want to cover a few of my favorite products for keeping your brows natural but also defined.  Read on to see if you already use any of these or if you’re interested in trying a new product!

1.) Anastasia Brow Wiz  $21

So it’s no surprise this is first on the list today if you read yesterday’s post.  I love this pencil because of it’s gliding ability and because it has a great color selection.  You can find the exact shade that you need and it won’t be too heavy when applied but it’s also not too dry either.

The Brow Wiz Pencil is a great option for truly mimicking natural brow hair.  When applying, it’s best to use a feathering approach and flick small strokes upwards and into the brow.

2.) Makeup Forever Pro Sculpting Brow $27

The reason I love this pencil specifically is because of how light the blonde color actually is.  This shade is so light that you can’t mess it up!  I have yet to find a brow pencil this light and it’s perfect for someone who is very fair or timid with their brows.  The triangular shaped pencil makes application SO easily and it even comes with a highlighter inside of the pencil! Hello!!

This pencil is perfect for people who want color and allows you to precisely define the brow along the perimeter.  It’s also great for the “tail” end of the brow because of it’s pointed shaped tip. (Point the smaller end of the tip downwards if you like a very “sharp” tail.)

3.) Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel $24

I loooove this gel! As weird as it sounds it’s all because of the tiny applicator wand! It is so teeny and so precise that you really can brush the hair exactly how you want it while keeping the arch nicely defined so that it sets and stays for the day.  I’ve used larger wands with brow mascara before and 9/10 it lays out too much product too quickly putting it to waste.  Not with this! #tinybutmighty

This tinted gel is perfect for people who love their brows the way they are, they just want a little more color.  It’s also perfect for people who have unruly brows and want to set the hair into place.  It works very much like hairspray does!  

If you look below you can see that Camilla Belle’s brows are perfectly uniformed.  It’s safe to say that her makeup artist probably used some type of gel or wax to keep them in place.
