“You must never underestimate the power of the eyebrow”
Eyebrows are one of those things that make you feel accomplished. I know, it sounds so ridiculous, but it’s true! When you get your eyebrows done, everything just feels better… your face is shaped, your eyes stand out, and you can raise your eyebrow without thinking “crap! I’m drawing attention to a completely messy brow!”
As someone who does a lot of subconscious eyebrow raising, I find that I’m the most confident in doing so when they’re perfectly shaped and taken care of. Yes, sometimes they can get a bit neglected, but once you start taking care of them, you notice when a single hair is out of place!
If you’re like me, and would never trust yourself to wax/thread your own eyebrows, there are a few things you can do which can keep them looking shaped and defined in between waxes/threading.
You can use:
1) Eyebrow gels. These fantastic inventions act as hairspray would to your fly aways, only this time, on your eyebrows! I use the Essence Lash and Brow Gel Mascara which is pretty good for the cheap price of $3.50 AUD!
2) Eyebrow powders. Use these to fill in your eyebrows and give more definition. A helpful hint; you don’t need to use actual eyebrow powder, you can use eyeshadow! It is essentially a very similar formula to the eyebrow powder, but can be more economic if you already have eyeshadow that would match the colour of your eyebrows! Apply with an angled brush for precision, e voila!
(only use matte eyeshadows in colours that match the colour of your brows!)
3) Eyebrow pencils. The obvious must-have when it comes to eyebrows! Pencils can precisely define the shape of your eyebrows and help you to create (or fix) your shaping.
I would recommend practice with the eyebrow pencil, sometimes the lines can look too harsh, and make your brows look fake, and you don’t want that!
