You can put makeup on your eyebrows?!?!
Yes, yes you can. It took me around 6 years to master the art of eyeliner and, if I’m being honest, some days it doesn’t really come out the way I wish it would. So, how can you expect me to have mastered the art of eyebrows already, when 2 years ago I didn’t even know you could put makeup on your eyebrows to begin with?! Patience is key, or that’s what I keep telling myself, so I won’t go insane. Patience and good products, products that are actually helpful & almost, but almost do the work for you. Speaking of good products, I want to show you what I’ve got from Benefit’s godsend that is their brow line. The only time I’ve ever felt like I had a chance at mastering the art of eyebrows was since I’ve been using their Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil. Actually remembering to set up tweezing appointments so I won’t have to struggle to pluck out the extra hairs myself – or worse, just pretend they aren’t there (my strategy right now). So, in attempts at getting better, I restocked the Goof Proof, promised myself I’d go to a professional to get my eyebrows tweezed (maybe even at the Benefit Brow Bar?) and picked up 3 new products I can’t wait to try out.
BROWVO! Conditioning Primer
What is this? “Take your eyebrows from sparse to seriously fuller-looking with BROWVO! Conditioning Primer. This nutrient-rich, conditioning primer is formulated with keratin and soy proteins—known to help brows look thicker, healthier, and fuller. The double-duty formula can be used as a primer to extend and enhance other brow products or worn alone to condition and smooth brows. The custom-designed soft-touch applicator coats brows from root to tip.”
Why we need it: There are face & eyeshadow primers, so I think it’s common sense that eyebrows need a primer as well (since neither the face nor the eyeshadow primers go in the eyebrow area or on the eyebrows) if you want them to last the whole day.
Goof Proof Brow Pencil
What is this? “ A foolproof brow pencil with a custom tip that instantly shapes, defines, and fills in brows. Anyone can be an expert with this super easy-to-use, brow-filling and shaping pencil. Use the wide base to fill and shape your brows, building color with a couple of strokes. Then use the pointed edge to define the tail end of your brows. The soft, glide-on color creates naturally full, beautiful brows and the spoolie-brush effortlessly blends the 12-hour waterproof color.”
Why we need it: This was the first pencil that made me feel as if I had a chance at drawing on half decent eyebrows. I shall review all these products soon, however, so we’ll talk more about it then.
ka-BROW! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color with Brush
What is this? “ka-BROW! features an all in one cream-gel formula with a built-in brush that glides on smoothly to easily shape, fill, and define brows. The 24-hour smudge-proof, waterproof color builds beautifully to create brow looks ranging from soft and natural to bold and dramatic. Transform the cap into a full length brush for extra precision and control by pulling the brush out of the cap, flipping it around and snapping it back in. A little goes a long way, so don’t be shy about dabbing any excess product off the brush before applying to each brow. “
Why we need it: I generally can ace an eyeliner using a brush right? And gels are the easiest to work with. So, logically, I’m assuming that this should be a fool proof option for getting the right eyebrows as well. I’ll let you know how we get along.
Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel
What is this? “Gimme Brow’s innovative brush-on gel has tiny microfibers that adhere to skin and hair, creating lush-looking eyebrows where before there were none. The water-resistant, long-lasting, formula builds easily for thick, full arches, thanks to a tapered brush for blending and precision tip for shaping perfect brows. It now includes the Medium Shade 3, which is perfect for individuals with golden blonde to medium brown hair.”
Why we need it: My eyebrows tend to be all over the place, so I need some sort of setting gel to keep them all nice and neat. Also, half of the hairs in my eyebrows are light blonde, so this one will help them pop out and help me not look like a person with only half eyebrows.
