The Brow Game

The evolution of brows has truly amazed me! Achieving great brows has become part of my every day life and I think that it is here to stay; It’s one of the first things we notice on a face. I’ve stated before in my Instagram stories, achieving great brows is all in your technique, not necessarily the product. I use 2 products for my brows and here they are:

Precisely My Brow pencil by Benefit

This fine eyebrow pencil draws incredibly natural-looking, hair-like strokes that last all day. Its rich and super blend-able color transforms my brows from shapeless & undefined to filled & defined. I love the twist-up, non-sharpen tip, built-in spoolie-brush and the fact that it’s waterproof.

Gimme Brow by Benefit

This tinted eyebrow gel contains tiny microfibers that adhere to the skin & hairs, creating natural-looking fullness and definition. The custom, tiny tapered brush blends easily while the precision tip shapes hairs into place. I love this product because while taming and enhancing my brow hairs, it adds thickness and volume. I could use this by itself if I wanted to go for a quick brow application for lazy/effortless days.

I use both of these products in the shade ‘5’, which is a dark brown. I always finish/touch up using my Kat Von D lock-it concealer and a thin flat brush to create a defined look and conceal any hairs I don’t want to be exposed, while also highlighting the under brow.

As far as my technique, I start out and work in. I use the most product on the tail and in the middle of my brow and then I draw a very thin and faint line under the front and thickest part, and simply brush in an upward direction. I never want my brows to look bold and boxy, so using the least amount of product closest to the bridge of your nose is best- it’s what looks most natural and admirable. I schedule my appointments at the Benefit Brow Bar at Ulta and i’ll never stray; I absolutely love what my brow tech does and Benefit is known for mapping your brows before the wax, so you have a clear vision of what they will like after the service. I am pro Benefit brow products as well because there is a variety of different shades, products as far as styling and possibilities for every brow shape, color and texture. Not to mention the packaging is so darn cute and the prices are so reasonable. Practice and patience are key components.
