NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Video: Eyebrow Routine


My eyebrows are a weirdly important feature for me personally. After years of hating my bushy monobrow-esk eyebrows as a child I started plucking them at the age of 12. I was always very reserved and only ever went too far once... Then my mum grabbed a load of magazines and showed me where my brows should start and end - lesson learnt.

For my everyday eyebrows I use the Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil (as seen in the video). Lazy day eyebrows require MACs Charcoal Brown and a Mac angled brush. Charcoal brown is a tad to warm for my ash-brown brows so I need to invest in a more grey tone to mix with it, To keep my brows under control I use the HD Brows Brow Beater* which keeps them neatly in place.

When it comes to eyebrow maintenance, I pluck the stray ones that crop up outside of the shape i've created, always making sure the arch is defined and the ends are thin (as they have the ability to be seriously thick, long and all round cray cray! In order to keep the shape I can create when brushing my eyebrows up I simply trim them with a little spooley and tiny scissors. This isn't necessary for everyone but my brow hairs have been known to reach centimeters in length, not ideal for someone who loves neatly groomed eyebrows.

Apart form the odd trim and pluck, the brows are fairly low maintenance, and I am very lucky to have eyebrows that have some form of natural shape and definition - but I will always like to define them that little bit more...

  2. I love your brows! I always go overboard when I used a pencil though so Mac's Charcoal Brown is my everyday eyebrow product and shade!

  3. I love your brows they look natural but defined! I have very fair brows so have to darken them a bit. I either use the HD brows kit or the same Rimmel Pencil but in Hazel. Great post!

  11. You have great eyebrows. Mine are naturally think but could probably still use some filling in. I am still a bit afraid of doing it though because I always feel like they are too prominent once I have groomed them. Kind of like how I used to feel like a bold lip was too much of a statement when I first started wearing them. Maybe with some practice I will be able to create lovely brows like yours.

  13. Your eyebrows are so pretty, I think they're a really important feature on someone, there's nothing I hate more than someone who over plucks or over defines their eyebrows, they're a certain way they have to be haha. x
