Eyebrow Grooming

Eyebrows. In my opinion, they can go one of three ways; wild and unruly, too thin and sharpie-d on or well groomed and maintained. Over the last year or so, I've definitely had a mix of the three. It started as the first type, obviously.

When I had them waxed for the first time, I thought they were the best things ever. But looking back, they were definitely too thin and sharp - not a good look. Almost a year on, I'm happy with how they're looking. I've let them grow back - within reason - and found a brow maintenance routine that works for me. Hooray.

Nowadays I only ever pluck stray hairs from underneath the arch of my brows. I feel like too much removed from either end, only leads to great difficulty making them symmetrical. 

As for filling them in, I tend to use either Mac's Charcoal Brown eyeshadow or a matte brown shadow from MUA, with an angled brush from Barry M. I tend to use very light strokes, focusing on the middle and end sections.

I used to use a clear mascara to set them, but I've since discovered that that's not really necessary for me, as my brows don't tend to move too much throughout the day...



  1. I don't need to set my brows either, they don't budge!!

  2. That looks like a great eyeshadow colour for brows! I just use my naked basics palette for my brows :)

  3. I really need to step up my eyebrow game, every time I try and do mine they look different than the last :(

  4. I'd like to do more with my brows, im just so worried I'd bum it up. I use the Benefit brow thing, Gimmie Brow - it does the job but I wish I could maybe be a bit better at filling them in with powder :/
