A lot of people comment on my eyebrows — and I don’t mean that in a ‘braggy’ way at all, but it’s true. I do get a lot of compliments on them, so I wanted to share the wealth + my vast very little, and self-taught, knowledge about eyebrows.

In all honesty, though, I do pride myself on my brows. I truly do believe that eyebrows are the cornerstone of a person’s face; they frame the eyes, help you express yourself, and we’d just look REALLY weird without them.

I have a set of brow maintenance rules that I abide by in order to keep them tamed — because nobody likes unruly brows –and there are only TWO I believe should be followed at all times:

  1. Maintenance is key! — pluck any little random hairs daily to keep your brows looking clean between clean-up’s. If you have to tweeze out more than three-five stray hairs, it’s time to get them cleaned up.
  2. Don’t go tweezer-crazy! — less is more. Your natural brow shape is DESIGNED for your face, so use it!

WHAT I USE

ShadowSense is my FAVORITE product to use in my brows. It’s water-resistant, blends out SO nicely, looks natural AF + is also loaded with SenePlex complex (so your the skin under your brows is actually getting skincare benefits)! It’s super pigmented so a little bit will go a long way, and because it’s cream to powder — HELLO NO SHATTER IF YOU DROP IT!

There are four colors that (in my opinion) are perfect for brows: Moca Java, Garnet, Smoked Topaz + Onyx.

If you find that none of these are your color, SURPRISE!! — you can MIX COLORS TOGETHER!

For brunettes with a more red undertone, a little dab of Onyx will deepen Garnet into your ideal shade. If you’re blonde, but more on the strawberry side, a smidge of Garnet will slightly warm up Moca Java. The versatility of this product still astounds me to this day.

WHAT I DO

Like the title of this post states, there are FIVE STEPS I follow:

✔︎  use a spooli to comb them into their natural shape
✔︎  using an angle brush, outline the bottom of your brow
✔︎  using that same brush, outline the top of your brow
✔︎  fill in any remaining spots, making sure to define + outline the outer edge
✔︎  brush your spooli through to soften them for a more natural-looking finish

I’ve been doing this little routine for so long, I’ve pretty much gotten it down to a science. There’s minimal effort, and because I’m using the natural shape of my brows, there’s no second guessing or extra work involved in having to carve out a new shape (or alter the one you already have into something unnatural)!
