Are you with me when I say it can’t be a good day without good brows?
Whether I’m wearing makeup or not, I like to tame my brows and make a bit of effort with them. Even if it’s a tiny bit of pencil or brow gel I think looking after your brows is super important. They do shape your face after all.
A good brow day is such a good feeling and I like to make them happen as often as possible. You feel me?
Filling in your brows doesn’t have to be a difficult job either. I used to take ages trying to get the right shape and colour but with the right products it only needs to take minutes, if that.
My obsession for quite over a year now has been the Benefit Brow range. They came out with a whole new line of products last summer and I’ve been using nothing much but them since. I’ve swapped and changed amongst the different bits they have and to be honest, it’s proven difficult to pick a favourite.
If you’re already a fan of the range and want to know all about Benefit’s brand new brow product then keep reading… it’s coming and oh-so exciting!
For a quick and easy effortless fill I love the Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil. This ultra-thin brow pencil comes in 6 different shades to suit all and in my opinion, does the best job at giving natural full looking brows. With its fine twist up non-sharpen tip you simply draw and mimic brow hairs in small strokes until you feel they’re full enough. It comes with a built-in spoolie attached to one end that I like to use to tame them before and brush through after for an even more natural finish.
If I’m looking to get a more defined and fuller brow (more for those full face makeup days) I like to use a mix of the ka-BROW! Eyebrow Cream-Gel Colour and the 3D BROWtones Eyebrow Enhancer. The ka-BROW! is a product I know many love but I was always a bit terrified of it as I’m a brow pencil/powder kinda gal. However, after the first use I was so impressed I’ve stuck to it. It’s a lot lighter weight than I expected and you can achieve really natural brows if you use it with a light hand. If you like a fuller brow then you can easily build this product up. It comes with its own built in brow brush that is so handy for travelling with and the brush is small and slanted so its super easy to sculpt out defined brows. I tend to apply the product from the middle to end of my brow and disperse the leftover in the front to leave them more natural. This is long lasting and doesn’t budge all day long! Again this comes in 6 shades.
The 3D BROWtones Eyebrow Enhancer is a subtle brow highlighter, not for the brow bone though, this one is for the hairs. This brush on gel subtly highlights the brow hairs, to make the brows appear softer and fuller. Like their other products, this is waterproof so it’s gon’ last you all day. Don’t worry, this doesn’t leave you with shimmery eyebrows, it gives them a lift and adds more dimension. This product comes in 2 shades for light-medium or medium-deep brows.
*Drum roll please*. Introducing the brand new Benefit Brow product… the Foolproof Brow Powder. If you’re the kinda person to love full and fluffy but natural brows like me, then you’re going to love this.
Not only does the all-new Foolproof Brow Powder make filling your brows in, well, foolproof, it really does transform your brows.
This clever little powder gives you two shades in one kit to help you achieve the light to dark brow look, which mimics the natural gradient your natural brows have. You apply the lightest shade to the front and gradually get darker towards the end with the deeper shade.
I find the product feels velvety smooth and glides onto the brows so easily. If you have any gaps or sparse brows this powder fills it in with no fuss. This lives up to the rest of the ranges longevity expectation as I find this lasts all day and doesn’t budge with the trusty Gimme Brow on top.
The kit comes with its own brow sponge and spoolie, however I also like to use my own slanted brow brush. The sponge makes filling in super quick and easy but a thin slanted brush helps you achieve more definition, and I also use this to fill in the front to get that natural fluffy brow.
You can shop these Benefit Brow products with the rest of the range in-store or online (here) at Debenhams.
What brow is your kinda brow?
