I was 18 when I first started using products to define and shape my eyebrows and haven’t missed a day since. Good eyebrows can totally change your face so there’s no reason for not looking after them.
My current brow routine is incredibly easy and after enough practice, requires little concentration. Two treatments, two products and two tools – simple:
Eyebrow Threading – In my opinion, threading is better than waxing. I like the precision threading creates and find the shape of my brows last longer between treatments. I get my brows threaded at Blink Brow Bar once a month and have never been disappointed; the ladies are always lovely and leave my brows preened to perfection. Don’t forget that shape is the key to a good brow so it’s not worth skimping on this step of the routine.
Eyebrow Tinting – Tinting is a reasonably new discovery for me and I swear by it now. I was always scared of ending up with a poor colour match, hence why I’m so late to the tinting party, but I totally trust the ladies at Blink Brow Bar and I’d never go anywhere else now. Tinting is great if you have fair brows, sparse brows or just prefer a lower maintenance brow routine. The colour tends to last up to 3 weeks and means you need less of your brow products too – win win.
Benefit KaBrow – A cream-gel eyebrow product that I couldn’t live without – it’s a total all-rounder product. KaBrow is buildable so can be used for natural and dramatic looks. It also lasts all day, is waterproof and there’s a brush in the packaging so it’s makes an awesome travel product too. I adore how precise I can be with this product; I’ve never got such a clean arch with any other product. It’s overtaken the Benefit BrowZings as my favourite brow product, which is extremely high praise indeed.
Benefit Gimme Brow – This product is an absolute saviour if you want thicker yet natural looking brows – it mimics the appearance of real hairs and genuinely looks good. Gimme Brow’s tiny brush is precise and the tinted gel is buildable, long-wearing and a tube lasts a long while. I use this after KaBrow to mess up my brows a bit, especially for a day look.
Real Techniques Brow Brush – I’ve gone through so many hard angled liner brushes for my brows but the Real Techniques one is by far my favourite. The brush has just the right density, doesn’t shed and works well with creams, powder and wax based brow products.
Spoolies – I have no brand allegiance with spoolies, I’ll take whichever I put my hand on first. Ultimately it doesn’t matter which you use, just use one; they’re fab for brushing your brows up to get maximum thickness – they come in handy with mascara too. I use mine before applying both KaBrow and Gimme Brow. You can pick up inexpensive multipacks on Amazon if you want to try them out.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my current brow routine and favourite products. What do you use on your brows? Do you have a favourite treatment?
