It is fashionable now to have the full, shaped, defined brow look. If you look throughout ages the fashion of eyebrows goes from pencil thin eyebrow to a fuller eyebrow. Just look at the 1920s actress Clara Bow with her dramatic look to the fuller look of Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn in the 1950s and 1960s. History repeats itself, it goes from thick to thin! The overdrawn, highly defined look is in, the natural look is out. Because of this popular look, companies are now bringing out more and more brow products. Makeup artists say that your eyebrows are sisters and not twins! I think this is a perfect explanation of our brows.
I have tried a few brow products and I think they will be perfect if you have over-plucked eyebrows or to fill the gaps where your hair doesn’t grow.I do have a gap on the ends so I need something something to fill them in.
Sleek Brow Kit in ‘Light’ is a travel friendly kit with 2 mini brushes and small tweezers and a small mirror. It has 2 products, a powder and a waxy texture product. I do prefer the powder myself as it gives a more natural look. It is an affordable and quite good quality kit.
Beauty UK high brow all in one brow definition kit has a tweezer and brush but comes with 4 products, 3 shades for different shades of hair and a clear wax to set the brows. Good pigmentation, sets well on the brows and good value for money. I wish it had a mirror though.
Soap & Glory Archery in ‘Brownie Points’ is a brow tint and precision shaping pencil. It is a double ended pencil. Starting with the felt-tip tint, you use light strokes to fill in any gaps and add fullness, then flip it to use the pencil end to draw in the perfect shape. It is the perfect shade for me and it is my favourite. It is so easy to work with.
I have been using two Benefit products. Benefit are going big on brows this year. These were freebies from the magazines and a great idea to try before you buy. Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil is similar to the Soap & Glory as it is a pencil to fill the gaps and the other end has a spoolie to comb your brows. I really like this product. Benefit Ready, Set , Brow is a setting gel with a perfect brush. It takes the perfect amount of product to set the brows and the brows keep the shape all day with no flakiness. I really like this product, Benefit have a winner with this product! I am really impressed with these two Benefit products.
