My Eyebrow Routine

Are you in the USA? If so, you should enter my MAC giveaway here!
First off, I hate my eyebrows. They are very sparse & they grow straight out. I never knew how to work with them when I was younger. I debated on getting them tattooed, but I have never seen natural looking eyebrow tattoos.
I get them waxed every 6-8 weeks & I keep up with tweezing them in between wax appointments. My eyebrows are very light, ashy in color & grow randomly so I don't do much with them. I do trim them & try to keep somewhat of an arch in the shape.
So here is my current eyebrow routine:
This is my face with no makeup & as you can see, my eyebrows are very sparse & patchy. I feel like your eyes are the window to you soul & your eyebrows are the frame. Unfortunately, the natural frame just doesn't work!
I change products every now & then. I also switch between using elf Eyebrow Kit & Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel (I forgot it in my gym bag when I took this picture!). It really depends on how I feel that day & what is in front of me. I find that the pencil is faster & easier to work with, however, it tends to look much more fake. The wax in the Eyebrow Kit gives a softer look. 
I start by applying a primer, I use either Too Faced Shadow Insurance or Urban Decay Primer Potion. I put a small amount on my entire eyelid & make sure to apply it to my brow & under eye. 
Next, I will start with either the wax from elf Eyebrow Kit or the Rimmel pencil. If I use the pencil, I do small soft strokes to replicate growing hair. With the wax, I use my Smashbox eyebrow brush (sorry I don't have the name or number right now) and use small brush strokes to help fill in my brow. The Smashbox brush is really stiff & deposits the color evenly. 
I use the middle powder (highlighter is first, lighter brow color is second & darkest brow color is last)in the Milani  Brow Fix Kit and apply it all over the brow. 
Last, I apply the highlighter from the Milani Brow Fix Kit on my brow bone.
A pet peeve of mine is when I see gorgeous makeup & brows that look unfinished. I rarely go anywhere without my brows filled in, it's fast & changes the way my whole face looks!


  1. Brows are a must for me too! I love the Milani Brow Kit :)

    1. I couldn't agree more! They finish the whole look.

  2. Agreed! Nothing worse than a beautiful eye look messed up by an unfinished brow! I remember when I first started wearing makeup and neglected my brows --now I do my brows first! Lol. :o)
