The Princess Tag!

 

Hey Everyone!

This is the Princess Tag, which is basically a list of your High-End favorites. I know that everyone has a different definition of high-end vs. low-end, so as a disclaimer, the majority of these products will be in the $30 and above price range. It would be easy to just pick the most expensive products that I have in each category, but these high end products are actually ones that are amazing enough to be worn by a princess.

Best Brow Products!

Hey Everyone!

I know I’ve been totally slacking on the posts lately, and I’m SO sorry, but I promise I will post as much as I can from here forward! 🙂

Ok now that that’s out of the way, this post is all about my favorite eyebrow products including new finds, and tried and true staples. I find that brows can totally transform your entire look, so I like to have a few different types AND shades of products to add just the right touch. Here are the ones I like :

**For reference  I’m light skinned with very dark brown brows, light brown/hazel eyes, and light brown hair with honey highlights. These products work on me but are also versatile for different skin tones, brow colors, etc.**

Pencil :

Starlet Pencil in All I Want Is Peace , Love, and Chocolate This pencil is warm cocoa color with red undertones. It is moderately creamy and blends out well with a spoolie. I would recommend this if you want a warm, strong brow.  At starletcosmetics.com

Gel :

Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel – This is a clear gel with a large soft mascara-type wand. I love it because it leaves absolutely no residue. $18 at http://chella.com/products/item/beautiful_brow_gel

Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep – This gel is a new favorite, and is amazing! It has a tiny tapered wand and is great for a quick boost in color and volume. The color is a neutral (leaning cool) liver/taupe.  *I know liver is’nt the most appealing color name, but it matches the actual color best* $22 at http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/product/view/gimme-brow

Powder :

MAC Wedge – This product is a perfect neutral soft medium brown with a matte finish. It has been in my collection since the start, and is one of my favorite shades of all time.

MAC Soba – This shade is a soft golden brown with very slight gold shimmer. Although the description sounds a bit scary, it actually gives a very natural warm brow.

MAC Cork – This is the warm version of Wedge that gives a slightly fuller brow. It is a warm-toned soft medium brown.

MAC Espresso – This color is a neutral espresso brown. It’s great for a fully defined, strong brow.

All MAC Eyeshadows are $15 and can be purchased at maccosmetics.com

Tools :

Spoolie – I’m not sure if this is the “technical” name for this brush, or if there even is a technical name, but regardless this brush, which is essentially a clean mascara wand, is essential for brow care. It’s great for brushing, priming, taming, and distributing color on the brows. You can get a really nice spoolie from Sigma for $10, or a cheaper one at any beauty supply store. http://www.sigmabeauty.com/Brow_and_Lash_E80_p/e80.htm

MAC 208 Angled Brow Brush – This brush is also essential for brow care. It is great for defining and applying color. I like the MAC 208 because it is much stiffer than a lot of angled brushes on the market, which makes for more precise application. At MAC for $20. http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/145/813/208/index.tmpl
