Let's Talk About Brows
Brows have been a big topic of conversation amongst our team lately. In the last few years new brow products have flooded the market. What happened to just tweezing, waxing or threading? Now it's all about fullness and framing with gels, powders, amplifiers!
Starting With The Basics
Wanting to learn more about how to make the most of our natural brows, we popped into Benefit Cosmetics on Fillmore Street last week for a quick tutorial. One motto Megan loves is to keep in mind is that your brows are sisters, not twins. They don't have to be identical, few people are completely symmetrical so work with what you have.
Three Steps to Fuller Brows
Joseph (who helped us and was AMAZING) and gave us these tips:
- Start by adding a little bit of their High Brow Pencil or a light shadow just under the arch of the brow to highlight it.
- Then use Benefit's Gimme Brow or a shadow of your choosing to fill in and volumize the brow. Start in the middle of the brow, work your way out when filling in with color and then apply at the inner eye.*
- To finish off the look lightly outline the bottom and top lines of the brow with the Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil to give them a more defined shape.
*Pro tip: You want your brows to be the darkest at the outter edges and lighter at the inner eye creating a soft ombre effect.
You can be the judge on the results -- but we have definitely become brow converts! The great part is that it only adds 60 seconds to your morning makeup routine.
