This is it! The one you’ve been waiting for… The Ultimate Brow Edit. You know I’m brow mad – you guys tell me I’ve got good uns, I appreciate that (good brows is the new skinny, right?). There’s been some brow dramaz over the years, but thanks to RapidBrow (review here) my arches have been restored to their former bushy glory… well almost. I still need a little tweak to keep brows looking on fleek (sorry, I had to).
This is everything in my brow arsenal, the tried and tested pencils, powders and pomades…
HD Brow Palette £25 – perfect colour match, never fails.
You were my first! The one that changed it all. Others have come and gone, you’ve remained a constant. HD Brow powders are super pigmented, naturally matte, fantastically smudge-proof and seriously long lasting. The Pro Eye & Brow Palette contains all the shades from HD Brows regular palettes, plus carbon – it’s basically a customisable brow wardrobe. A subtle gap-fill or full on scouse brow – this can do it all. Easy to use, simply brush, dab or spooly the powder where it’s needed for natural, long lasting brows. Full review and deats here.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade £15 – Strong Bold Brow
The perfect choice for precise, strong brows!.So this one requires a little more effort and skill, but carry it off and you’ll arch out the competition. The formula is a stiff, creamy gel, which applied with a good angled brush (yup I love Anastasia’s Duo Brush 12) affords the most incredibly precision. It’s rich, super pigmented and completely smudge/sweat/water proof. So good, I have two shades… Medium Brown and chocolate. Full review here.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz £15.50 – Natural, Easy to Use
There’s no denying Anastasia is le Queen of brows. If dipbrow aint your bag this gets the job done in a more discreet manner. Yes, it’s a pencil but used properly – short strokes, light touch, your arches won’t look drawn on. The tiny tip allows you to be precise and get right into those pesky little gaps and easily mimic natural hairs. Unlike most pencils, the formula is soft, almost powder-like and blends amazingly using the handy spooly on the opposite end. It’s one of the quickest, most fool-proof solutions in my arsenal.
Benefit Gimme Brow £18.50 –– low key/off duty all-in-one
A magic little wand. It doesn’t just tint brows or comb them in place. It magics brow hairs where they don’t even exist. The innovative brush-on fibre-gel adheres to skin and hair, filling sparse patches and thickening brows naturally. The tapered brush is tinie-tiny and absolutely perfect for shaping and filling the hard to reach gaps. Of all the brow options, this is the easiest and quickest to use - sweep' n go! It's just a shame about the price - £18.50 for 3gs OUCH!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel £16.50 – the finishing touch
If you’re bless with naturally full brows this could be all you need to tame/groom your arches. But for most of us this is an optional finishing touch. A slick of this after your pencil/powder/gel will keep your hairs in place and generally look more done – and this one doesn’t go crusty - bonus!
