I know, hold your breath I’m about to discuss those fabulous things that sit so innocently above your eyes, just daring you not to think you know how to brow-glam them.
Before I started to style my eyebrows, I just thought to myself, why is my hair so dark and my brows not as black as my hair… WHY??!! Fast-forward, and now we have a plethora of products to choose from. There is a powder, pencil, pen, pomade, and gel but, which one is right for you? This article is going to just tell you a little bit about each of these products and let you see which is suitable for your brows.
PENCIL- This is the most popular, which I keep in my makeup case for clients that prefer pencil instead of powder. Pencil can give a soft look to your brows, and also you can use it under brow powder for a very natural subtle look. Eyebrow Pencil is excellent because you can fill in sparse areas, or defining the brow more. I tell clients that when you first try a pencil, always remember to start at the back of your brow, not the front. You tend to be a little heavier handed and will lighten up your stroke as you come forward. I like to Benefits Cosmetics Goof Proof Brows, it’s such a natural product and works well.
EYEBROW POWDER- This product will help fill in any holes or sparse areas in the brows. Remember, I told you that you can apply powder over a pencil? The reason I stated that is because the powder acts almost like a setting powder and will have your brows last longer and look very natural. I know many of my clients state they had trouble picking out a shade that really complemented their eyebrows, I recommend you choose a color closer to your base hair color for a softer realistic look. To use a brow powder, you’ll need an angled brush to effectively fill in your brows with powder. You’ll need to coat the brush with the formula before dabbing; it on the back of your hand, the sweep in the direction of your hair growth with a light hand. I like Bobbi Brown’s Brow Powder I keep this in my case for my clients that rather have powder.
POMADE- This is the secret to the bold brows you see all over Instagram and YouTube. In addition to giving brows a dramatic, defined look, this formula can also give brows a subtle hold. This product is excellent for those with very sparse eyebrows, and looking for a quick way to fill them in will love a pomade. If you have thicker brows and decide to use pomade, you will have a dramatic, bold look. One of the leading pomades is by Anastasia Beverly Hills. My personal go-to cream/pomade is Chella Beauty – visit www.chellabeauty.com… I fell in love with this company after receiving a complimentary “brow kit” during StyleCon NYC 2018 and keep this product in my personal makeup kit and have introduced several of my clients to these products…
GEL – This option by many professionals is one of their go-to-options because, it’s one of the quickest and easiest ways to add color, subtle hold, and fullness to the brows. In fact, they keep brows in place very well. A gel works well for individuals that have coarse, unruly brows really get an excellent benefit from this product. I like using this product, and my technique is, I take any extra product off the spoolie… I use small, light-handed strokes, softly backcombing the brows… I think my go-to-product for the gel is Glossier Boy Brow…
These are just a handful of the brow products that are on the market, but we have even touched on markers, wax, or color. The one thing I can say is whichever you do decide to use, make sure that you practice and try out several different brands. I thought this video was great to share on how to style your brows naturally.
