It’s time for April’s edition of Beauty Buys, and this month I want to highlight the products I use to create natural looking brows.
If you’re like me, you may have suffered from over-plucked brows in the 90s. And maybe into the early 2000s if we’re being honest. What were we thinking? Pencil thin brows are not the way to go and in effort to get a full, natural-looking brow, I have got it down to a 2 or 3 product routine. Plus, I’ve finally found the one trick to make my brows grow.
So let’s break these down:
If you’ve been a long time TTD reader, you know this product is not new to me. It’s easily my 3rd re-purchase due to the smooth and easy application. This brow pencil allows you to create thin, hair-like strokes which look natural and not at all overdone. The brush on the end is also quite handy for touch-ups or brushing out excess product.
Sometimes I like to use this alone or in conjunction with the brow pencil. This wax + powder duo makes it easy to blend and looks very natural. I would be sure to use a good brow brush though! In my opinion, that makes all the difference. I use the IT Cosmetics Brow Brush and love it.
I purchased this product last month when my Boy Brow ran out. I love this. If you want to brush your brows into place and add a hint of tint and volume, this is your product.
A friend of mine, and former makeup artist at MAC, told me I needed to start using castor oil at night on my brows. She promised me this would be the key to growing full brows naturally. Well guys, it worked. I’ve been using this castor oil on my brows since November and I’ve seen a noticeable difference. It doesn’t happen overnight, but I will say, consistency is key. I use it 4, maybe 5 times a week and now I feel like my brows finally have shape and are full.
