Upping My Eyebrow Game

Eyebrows

I was a teenager for about three years of the 90s, when over-plucking was all the rage.  Unfortunately I was one of the unlucky ones whose eyebrows never grew back to their former glory 🙁

I usually just fill them using pencil, I don’t really know if I’m doing it right, so I thought I’d find some inspiration to help me.  I found this tutorial on Pinterest (via Covergirl), I picked this one because it seemed easy.  I also figured the premise would be the same for most tutorials; draw round the brows and fill them in.

This is what my eyebrows look like completely bare, I’ve not plucked them for a while as I wanted to see what would happen if I didn’t, the answer is not much!  Some hairs did grow back, but not really into a defined shape 🙁

To experiment with my eyebrows, I used Silk Fibre Brow Enhancer (Light), a Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil (002: Hazel) and I also attempted to use eyeshadow for the first time.  For this I used my Au Naturel Sleek palette (Bark – front row, number 3) and an angled brush from Ecotools.

The first eyebrow test I did was with the pencil.  I do like this look, it’s quite close to my natural colour, but close up it’s so obvious I’ve pencilled them in. Perhaps I need to use the brow brush to soften the lines.  It’s not something I’ve ever thought of doing!

Then I tried using the fibres.  The brush is way too thick and designed for people who already have nice thick brows and are just filling in some gaps.  I think it looks too light and because the brush is thick, the end just looks bulky.  I don’t think this product is worth paying £20 for!

Last up was using eyeshadow and an angled brush.  This isn’t something I’ve tried before, but it’s something a lot of YouTube tutorials seem to use.  I really like this, it looks natural and the angle brush makes it easy to build-up the colour and thickness.

Seeing the end result of using eyeshadow has definitely made me tempted to buy a brow kit.  I now just have to find one I like!  What do you guys use on your brows?  Can you recommend a brow kit? x

  1. Great post lovely – I would highly recommend the Barry M Brow kit, it’s a great little starter. However I am using the Soap & Glory Archery pencil at the moment and LOVING it sooo much. Really has worked wonders for me… a bit more pricier but well worth it 😉 Karen xo

  2. I love the look of the powder product on you! The shade is more natural. I have real difficulty with brow products pulling too warm on me. I’m loving the Sigma Brow Powder at the moment. Xx
