My Eyebrow Routine

After many years of trial and error, I've finally gotten to a point where I'm happy with my brows and I now have a simple routine which I use to keep them looking nice and polished. I often get lovely comments on my brows so today I wanted to tell you how I achieve, #browgoals. 
The first step is always grooming and shaping. The shape I go for is full, arched and quite defined. Once a month I like to trim my brows and all I do is brush them up with a spoolie and trim the hairs that exceed my natural brow line. I only do a bit at a time because this shortens the hairs quite a bit and can also make the brow appear a lot thinner. I can't remember where I got my scissors from but I'm sure it was either Boots or Sainsbury's. It doesn't really matter to me as long as they're slightly curved. For day to day maintenance, I like to use tweezers because they're quick and easy. 

When it comes to filling them in my go-to product is usually a pencil. Recently I've really been enjoying the Eylure Firm Brow Pencil in Dark Brown. I love it because it's a hard texture which means it doesn't smudge or come off throughout the day and is really easy to use. I always start at the bottom line near the front to give them more structure, then I'll lightly fill in any sparse areas and join the front so it all looks blended and more natural. The pencil also comes with a spoolie which is really handy! Over the years I've realised that I can't live without brow gel and my favourite one is the Eyeko Brow Gel. It's slightly tinted but is suitable for all hair colours. It's a must have for anyone with unruly brows! 

Finally, if I'm feeling super fancy, I'll use a bit of concealer to clean up around the edges to give a really clean finish. The Collection Lasting Perfection Corrector in Lemon is great for this as the slight yellow undertone helps to lift and highlight at the same time.


What are your favourite brow products?
