LET’S TALK BROWS.
I had a midlife crisis in college when I discovered the art of COLORING IN YOUR EYEBROWS. After I discovered this magical makeup product, I’ve never looked back. I went as far as to delete all of my old pictures where I was sans–eyebrows. HAHA!
Seriously, I used to refer to myself as a naked mole rat. It’s crazy the difference that framing your face with eyebrows can make.
When Billy and I first started dating I was so petrified to take off my eyebrows around him HAHAHA. I’m so serious, I’d wash my makeup off but put my brows back on. That’s how serious I believe in eyebrows.
BUT, I recently realized that I’ve been using three–year old Anastasia dip brow pomade that’s dried up beyond belief. Seriously, it’s almost rock hard when it’s supposed to be creamy and smooth. Anyways, after having a near “DUH EMILY!” moment, I asked you guys what your go-to brow products are.
Clearly, y’all are chickas after my own heart because you gave me THE BEST SUGGESTIONS. So, I wanted to share them with you all today! This stuff is the best of the best as recommended by you + I fully trust all y’all to recommend the best things out there!
TOP BROW PRODUCTS
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
This is my personal favorite – I’ve been using the pomade since the beginning of my brow-revelation (lol). BUT, you guys recommended some products that I haven’t tried yet!
You guys said that the Brow Gel is a must to keep your brows in place! You also mentioned that the Brow Brush is a staple in your collections! It’s double sided with a brush on one end and spooly on the other so it makes blending out your brow simple!
PRO TIP: Use argan oil or contact solution to revive your dried out dip brow. Two of you gave me this amazing tip and I’m forever grateful. So genius!
You guys said that NYX is a perfect dupe for the Anastasia brow products! They are almost half the price of the ABH products, but just as good!
I ended up purchasing the NYX Brow Pomade instead of the Anastasia Pomade because it’s almost half of the price! For something, like a pomade, that’s going to dry out – I’d prefer to purchase a cheaper one! That way, I won’t feel guilty if/when it does dry out!
DRUG STORE PRODUCTS
MAYBELLINE TOTAL TEMPTATION PENCIL
COVER GIRL POMADE
You guys know that I love a good drugstore find. So these products are so helpful – once the NYX pomade runs out, I’ll definitely be checking some of these out!
Using a brown eyeshadow is a new technique that I learned over the weekend – I’ve been laying it over top of the pomade to kind of “set” it in place. I love pomades but my biggest fear is that they smear (c’mon, who wants their eyebrow rubbing off?) So, setting it place is a little bit of extra insurance. It also gives you added thickness and definition – obsessed with this technique!
GLOSSIER BOY BROW
BENEFIT PRECISELY MY BROW
IT COSMETICS BROW POWDER
I’ve always wanted to try out Glossier! That’s on my to-do list of things that I wanna try out! ColourPop is such a fun, innovative and affordable company. My liquid lipsticks and highlighters that I’ve ordered from there are amazing.
Thank you all again for these amazing products. You guys are seriously the best. All of your suggestions and product recommendations were so helpful. If you’re in the market for a new brow product, check these out!
