Although I take eyebrow grooming very seriously, I’m not a brow expert. I have thick and semi-sparse brows, and I was always convinced that filling them in would result in having two dark blocks at the bottom of my forehead. I have finally come to realize that brows make the most difference to your look by framing your face.
Now, my brows are the hardest to groom and fill in. They say that eyebrows should be sisters, not twins. Mine are not even related. It’s something I have grown to accept.
I’m not here to teach you how to create that perfect arch because I suck at doing so myself. Instead, here’s how I like to fool people into thinking my brow game is strong:
Using the Sigma double sided brush from the Expert Brow Kit, I brush the brows up with the E80 side (an unused toothbrush works as a good alternative) to tame them into the right shape.
With the lighter shade of the Sigma Brow Powder in Medium, I fill in the gaps using the angled side of the same brush and a very light hand, following the natural shape of my brows.
For a natural look, try to avoid the front of the brows, and focus on areas that need to be filled in, defined or extended using hair-like strokes.
The last touch is setting with a brow gel. I’m currently testing Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Tinted Brow Gel in Granite.
You should know that I do not do this every day. Truth is, I can’t be bothered. However, when the brows are in need of a bit of attention, I jump immediately into Step 3.
Note to brow: work with you natural brow shape and thickness. Even though it’s a la mode to have Cara Delevingne brows, I find it sort of ridiculous to draw on a shape that doesn’t belong to your face. But that’s just me.
