Makeup Monday: Brow Time

Brows have been very popular in the makeup and fashion world for a while now. I remember back in the early 2000s when as a teenager I hated my thick brow so much. After getting my hands on a pair of tweezers, I plucked them into non-existence; fortunately for me they grew back! Now, I prefer to only tweeze the strays and keep them as thick as possible. This week I’m sharing some of my favourite products to give you the best brow days yet.

Of course, any product is only as good as the base you are working with. I keep my brow game simple: I tweeze the strays, and then brush them straight up with a spool brush and use cuticle scissors to trim the excessively long ones. Once you have this simple process it’s all about filling them in!

1: This cute little kit contains everything you need for a perfect brow look! Brushes, tweezers, even highlighter to show off your finished product.

2: Benefit Speed Brow really is a fast on the go product! One swipe in includes colour, shaping, and staying power.

3: I have featured e.l.f. products before cause you can’t beat the price! If you have never filled your brows in before this pencil is easy to use and easy on your wallet. You can’t go wrong with trying it out!

4: Powder gives a softer look than a gel, so if you have lighter brows (such as blonde) you may want to stick with a product like this one. Anastasia is the Queen of the Brow, and all of her products are amazing, especially this gel which will keep every hair in place all day long.

5: This pomade is my everyday go to brow filler! As I mentioned before, I love a strong brown and this give a dark and even colour. You do have to purchase a brush (or use one you have) separately; it is worth it though.

Thank you so much for all your love last week as I took a bit of a break! I appreciate all your comments, messages, and patience. Everyone needs a breather occasionally, and I hit a wall where I needed to refresh my creative spirit. I’m so excited to be back and to have new looks and collaborations to share with you over the next few weeks!

Happy Monday loves!

    kait–hi sweetie, just dropping by because you know i had to add on to how important brows are!! totally frames your face and facial expressions! and i know a lot of women including myself can relate to you on horror eyebrow stories when we were younger and the overtweezing. i’m glad yours grew back! mine however has a higher arch on one side (sad face). but either way, brow are never created equal so there has to to be filling in. great products, my absolute HG is the dip brow you have pictured. such an amazing product a little goes a LONG way! cheers to #browsonfleek. xoxo,

    I started working on my brow game a few years ago when the whole “eyebrows on fleek” thing came about. I just add a little shadow and make them pop! It’s hard because I have bleach blonde eyebrows. Loved this post and your picks!

      It’s amazing how just that little thing can totally change them! Anastasia has some really really light colours that may work for you. Btw can I just say how much I adore your fashion posts?! They are always so good. Hugs, Kait

    These brow products seem great, I’m not surprised that you love and use the Anastasia brow pomade, I’ve heard great reviews about nearly all of her products! I have really dark eyebrows and although everyone says there’s no such thing as black hair, mine literally looks jet black! I’ve tried using the darkest brown shades I can find and they just don’t blend, so I use black eyeshadow, haha! Hopefully, these awesome brands you’ve shared will come out with a shade that’s nearly black. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you’re having a great day so far, beauty!

      There is absolutely nothing wrong with what works best for you!!! I know I break the rules cause even when I go blonde I keep my brows uber dark! Have you tried Makeup Forever? They normally have a great colour range! I hope you’re having a super week love. Hugs, Kait

      It’s so hard to not touch them when you’re growing them out!!! Just remember people don’t notice the strays like you do. Let them goooo! Have a lovely week Jen. Hugs, Kait
