I had initially planned on doing the “Ride or Die Makeup” tag for today’s post, but I decided to go ahead and do a step-by-step of my brow routine instead (don’t worry, I’ll circle back to the tag next week).
To be honest, I do my brows a lot of different ways (and with various products) depending upon my mood, but lately I’ve been pretty regularly doing the same routine.
To start I take a clean mascara spoolie and brush my hairs in the direction I want them to lay. Some brow products have a spoolie that come with them (as is the case with my NYX Micro Brow Pencil) so you can just use that.
Next I underline my brow softly with a brow pencil to give it some definition.
Once I’ve lined the brow, I take the pencil and use small strokes to fill in the rest of my brow, being careful not to be too heavy-handed.
When I’m satisfied with the color and the bulk of my brows, I use a the spoolie to blend the pencil in (and to soften up the underlined portion).
Finally I set everything with a brown brow gel (my favorite is Glossier Boy Brow in Brown).
Do you fill in your brows? What kind of products do you prefer to use when filling in your brows? Let me know in the comments below and come back Friday for a tutorial on the eye look I’m wearing in these photos!
Love and hugs,
