Would I recommend? Yes

As I was reminded by one of my oldest and most brutally honest friends recently, I’ve had quite the journey with my brows.

 

They’ve always been sparse, caterpillar shaped and I was never thrilled with the results of my waxing and tinting. Recently though, I have been getting compliments on my brows almost daily (much to my delight, I don’t think there’s a more flattering compliment) and it’s made me want to share my routine for natural but defined brows.

The first change I made was to switch to threading. I will never go back to waxing. Threading has perfected my brow shape which I always struggled with. I have never been dissatisfied walking out after my threading. I’ve found it to be extremely consistent and it’s actually cheaper (which is just an added bonus as I would still go if it was more expensive).

 

The second change I made was the products I was using on them. I initially started with a brow pomade which I did enjoy but found it was far too easy to go overboard which I have a tendency to do.

 

I then switched to the Brow Wiz by Anastasia Beverley Hills. I now can’t imagine using anything else. It’s a wind up retractable pencil with a very small fine tip. This makes it extremely easy to make small hair like strokes to fill in sparse areas. I use the colour taupe/ash blonde and always start by brushing through my brows with the spoolie end of the pencil. I brush all the hairs up and line the bottom on the brow to start making out my shape. Then I brush all the hairs down and do the same thing on the top, although I use a much lighter hand on the innermost beginning of the brow to get a less harsh look. I then continue to use small hair like strokes to fill in the shape and concentrate on the empty areas of my brow. I finish with finally brushing through the brow with the spoolie once more and end up with the below.

Some like to clean up around the brow with concealer, I personally am too lazy for that day to day and am happy with it looking a little more messy for a more natural look rather than carved out perfection (although I also enjoy this).

 

Now I just finish up with a brow gel to keep unruly hairs in place and you are done!

 

Colour matching is extremely important with brows and I love these brow wiz pencils not only for their ease of use and pigment but also their colour range. They have a lot of colours that other brands seem to miss for example for colours suitable for redheads or more cool toned colours.

I always purchase mine off BeautyBay.com as it’s the cheapest I’ve been able to find (prices do vary) and I haven’t been able to find them in stores in Australia yet.

 

I hope you’ve found this helpful and try some new things with your brows. They can make a world of difference!
