.101 brows

Brows are one of those topics that fall off my radar, not because they don’t receive any love or attention on a daily basis but it’s more due to the fact that they end up becoming an afterthought. I know, but I’ve gotta admit, I’m not a brows gal. Some people are all about those brows and opt for a strong and defined look no matter the occasion, each hair is usually primed to perfection and remains that way throughout the day. On the other side of the spectrum you have me. I notice the difference that shaped brows make to my face, esp after they have been threaded, but my vow to care for them dearly tapers away like most of my New Year resolutions. Brows to me are all about the quick fix and these products help get me out the door in time for the train come those early mornings.

For such occasions I grab to the Benefit Gimmie Brow Gel in the colour light/medium. The most foolproof brow product I own I simply wipe of any excess from the applicator, brush through the hairs then boom I’m ready to go. This adds colour, shape and definition all in one super speedy application and doesn’t crisp up throughout the day. On days when I am heading out straight after work I turn to the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Blonde* This has a thick and waxy pencil that fills in brows within seconds but helps to give a slightly more defined look. The angled tip works perfectly at the arch to keep the natural shape of your brow whilst adding a tad more colour.

You can tell I’m in a brow mood when I reach for these next two products as each of them can be use to amp up your brow game. Firstly the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz gives some incredible precision. The pencil is one of the finest I’ve seen (though the Soap & Glory Archery is a fab dupe) and allows you to draw on individual hairs to create a multitude of looks. If you need to beef up those brows or extend them, this will be your BFF. Finally the new HD Brow Kit* a match made in brow loving heaven. With multiple colours, formulations and a brush, you can create the most chiselled of brows to give Cara a run for her money.
