BEAUTY: Brows like a boss

Hi honies,

Firstly, I would like to apologise for taking this long to do this post. Many of you have enquired about my eyebrows and by telling you that I fill it in with black eyeshadow doesn’t quite cut it. Instead, I’ll explain the entire process.

In order to build the foundation for my brows I have them threaded and shaped by my lovely friend Ibtishaam, owner and head therapist at Afterglow Beauty – contact herhere.

Brows before filling them: 

The next step would then be to use a brow gel, this is good to keep the hairs in place and prevent them from moving around,  note that the brow gel does harden your brow hairs slightly.

I opt for the Catrice brow gel as seen below, but you can find more affordable and as effective (sometimes better) brow gel at Essence cosmetics at Clicks.

The final step and the one that makes the most difference is filling them in with eyeshadow. If you have a lighter brow then I suggest you use a dark brown shadow to keep it looking more natural. I prefer the bold and dark brows and therefore use black eyeshadow. The palette I use is Bobbi Brown, but any eyeshadow brand could do the trick.

I find that the best brush to use when doing this in an angled brush; it gives you great control when shaping your brows. I start off by making two solid lines where I’d like my brows to start and then  follow it through by following the outter shape of my brow.

Lastly, I take some more shadow and darken the parts that need filling in and just like that… Easy peasy you’re done! Sometimes I run a brow brush through it just to blend it perfectly and give it that effortless finish.
