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.**
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
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
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
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
