Eyebrow Queen I am not. It has only been the past couple of years since I have really started to get into my brows and have tried and tested many a product for all us extremely fair haired girlies out there. I was born with non-existant eyebrows and have grown into an adult with non-existant brows (sigh). On the bright side, I have found a couple of fab products which are extremely easy to use (especially for amateurs) and are a light enough colour to experiment with, in order to avoid dramatic product overload which can often look unsightly.
When I first began my hunt for the perfect fair eyebrow kit, I remember stumbling upon Shannon from Shaaanxo on YouTube and she raved about the ELF Eyebrow Kit in ash (image:right) as she felt it was the best match for her newly bleach blonde hair. It's container is divided into two; pigmented wax and a complimenting setting powder, added with a double sided brush to help arch your brows easily when filling them in. This duo set in an inexpensive and affordable way of experimenting with brows, especially for first timers. I ended up switching up the included brush with the Real Techniques Detailer Brush as I found the longer handle a lot easier to work with.
MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Fling (image:left) is my latest holy grail brow product and is now a staple in my make up routine. Its self-sharpening, fine pencil tip is great at creating delicate brush strokes when filling in eyebrows. I follow the natural shape of my brow and extend them slightly using a light hand. When getting ready for a evening occasion, I tend to add a little more pressure in order to deepen the colour. Not only does this help frame my face, but gives a little more depth in photographs!
Eyebrows are definitely still very new to me, but I am enjoying experimenting with different types of products in a variety of colours to find my perfect match. I definitely prefer the natural brow look, topped up with a light product.
Do you have any brow recommendations?
