I don’t know about you, but if I could only choose one makeup item that I absolutely cannot live without–it has to be my brow product(s). They say your eyes are the windows to your soul, but your eyebrows are the frames to those windows! You gotta get those frames lookin’ good ya know?
However, if you have naturally thick brows like Cara Delevingne’s….woah gurl you’re set for life (haha jk). You won’t even need brow makeup! Lucky you! But unlucky for me, I’m not blessed with much brow hair–my brows are sparse af I look like a total different person before and after putting on brow makeup! They make such a difference to my face– my enhanced brows make me feel empowered and ready to take on each day. I know I might sound like I’m exaggerating here but I’m not kidding you! It’s true 🙂
So to get my brows on fleek at all times, here are the holy grail products that I use and have been there for me through thick and thin (quite literally):
In no particular order:
1 .Benefit Ka-Brow Gel
I have been using this almost everyday because it is so easy to use and gives great pigment that looks natural! This shade is perfect for my dark hair and when drawn on my brows look like they were naturally blessed, no kidding! It lasts on me all day throughout the humid weather (it’s really good considering my oily skin) with the slightest slightest fading. This is great for everyday use, would recommend it 100%! ❤
2 . Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow
I turn to this whenever I am going out to a place where I know I’ll get wet or really sweaty (like when I go for table tennis training sessions). Because this thing is really waterproof! Like they really mean it! Whenever I squeeze it on the back of my hand, the leftover does not budge at all! And that’s when I know it’s not gonna fail me and my brow is gonna stay on fleek all day. P.S do take note that a little goes a long way for this one! And it does take some tries to get used to it! As the saying goes…practice makes perfect~~~
3 .Anastasia Brow Brush #12
I use this to apply the Aqua Brow….and lemme tell you…I ❤ it! It really helps a lot with the application, especially the spoolie. It helps to make the pigment look more natural and blend in with my real brow hair. And when I’ve applied too much onto my brows, this helps to soften the look and help me look less cray (like as if I’ve used Sharpie on my brows..not a good look I tell ya) In short, I can’t live without this! ❤ ❤
4 .Benefit Gimme Brow
I know there’s a newer packaging for this but I haven’t gotten round to getting it since I bought the Benefit Ka-Brow Gel. This is the second tube that I’ve used, because it’s that good. The small brush really helps to comb through my brows and brush them in the right direction, and the hair fibres inside it really make a difference! But do be careful not to apply to much onto your brows! Scrape away some pigment at the side of the tube before you apply it directly to your brows!
5 .Bobbi Brown Longwearing Brow Pencil
It’s easy to use, pigment is really natural-looking…there’s nothing bad to say about it really. Just that it would be better if it lived up to its waterproof claims, but it is really longwearing…so who am I to complain? The spoolie and the precise shape of the pencil makes it really handy to use when on-the-go– this is my go-to when I’m late and rushing to head out the door. It’s fuss-free and makes really precise strokes on the brow…just wonderful..what more can I say? This will be great for beginners. ❤ This was the first product I tried on my brows too!
6. Catrice Eyebrow Lifter
This is really just an add-on bonus if you have the time. This is a really inexpensive highlighter for under my brows to help my brows pop more and look much more defined! Nothing bad about this really, it’s just really easy and great to use on days I want my brows to look extra on-fleek!
So these are my holy grail items, so that my brows are ready for any occasion! Although most of them are rather expensive, they’re really great quality and really make a huge difference for me…so it’s personally worth the splurge. I don’t think there are any drugstore dupes which are as impressive whadya think?
In any case, I’ve got my eyebrow game on, what about you?
