When it comes to eyebrow shaping and eyeshadow application, I’m no expert! I’m still learning a lot in these two areas, but I have found a few products that make things easier so I’m going to share. First of all, invest in a solid pair of tweezers. Tweezerman makes good quality stainless steel tweezers that will last you a lifetime. They’re great for touch ups here and there, but if you have a lot of shaping to do, I would recommend getting your brows threaded. I like going to Bombay Brow Bar. Since I’m still trying to grow my brows out I only need go once every three/four months or so to get a clean up done, but it makes a big difference.
M.A.C. Lingering Eyebrow Pencil is one of those sisterhood of the travelling pants phenomenon. It seems to work on everyone regardless of your skin tone, hair colour, etc. I have fair skin and light eye brows, and I use it almost everyday to gently fill in small gaps, even out shape, and add fullness to my brows. This self sharpening pencil is small, compact, and easy to use. A great starting point if you’re new to eyebrow defining!
Shavata Brow Tamer is a clear-gel eyebrow mascara that holds yours brows in place all day. The click-and-twist pen is ideal for on the go touch ups. I think this is a great addition to your kit even if you don’t use it daily, it’s perfect for those occasions when you really need it!
There is one brush I’ve been using longer than any other tool in my kit. I simply couldn’t get ready without it, for two reasons. The Chanel No11 Brow/Lash Brush is ideal for just that, eyebrows and eyelashes. I use it to comb threw my brows after using a pencil to subtle the colour and give them a more natural look. But, I originally started using this brush solely for my lashes. Putting on mascara is a skill, and I feel like you have to have this brush to make it possible. After every application of mascara (because let’s face it, nobody uses only one coat) I run threw my lashes with this brush to smooth any clumps and make sure the mascara has coated the full length of the lash. It helps to separate and fan the lashes apart to create a long and healthy look.
