THE EYEBROW GROOMING TEAM


I know I've mentioned to you all before that eyebrow grooming isn't something I can forgo. First off, if I didn't tame them I'd look a bit too much like Frida Kahlo for my own liking, and secondly, the scar I have through my left arch is the bane of my eyebrow existence. Thanks to a few (or multiple) eyebrow products, nobody will ever have to know my eyebrow secrets - except for you lot, considering I just spilled the beans to you. That's okay though, since I've had a lot of experience in the brow department I'm going to share with you my little grooming team. 

Favorite budget products // The Revlon Brow Fantasy is all you could ask for and more in a drugstore brow product. At under $10, it boasts a tinted setting gel that is actually pretty good and a pencil. I think it's got great bang for your buck. My only issues are that the pencil could be a bit longer and that it be offered in a wider variety of shades (ashier browns please). If you're a fan of brow markers, then I'd suggest trying out the NYX Eyebrow Marker. If I didn't have my bald spot, which requires a longer-lasting wax based product, this is probably all I'd use. It's super wallet friendly and looks light and natural on the brows. 

For perfect definition // For mimicking the look of natural hairs the Anastasia Brow Wiz is the best out there. The extremely fine wax nib lets you get into all the nooks and crannies without overdoing it - I will never be without one of these pencils in my stash. If you don't have time for drawing individual hairs and need something that can do the shaping for you, the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil is definitely one to try. I like that this has a thick and flattened wax tip so that all you have to do is trace it along your arch for perfect symmetry. The shade range for this product is pretty awesome too as they offer ashy brown shades which tend to look more natural. 

For setting those hairs in place // The Blink Brow Bar Clear Gel is the best I've come across so far. I am not a fan of gels that cause your hairs to separate, are gluey, or that leave residue, and this one does none of that. I'd have to say, though, that the Cover Girl Professional Natural Lash Mascara in Clear is a close runner up, and a much more budget friendly option. I actually just ran out of mine and will definitely be re-stocking ASAP!
