Update | Brow Routine

A few people have asked how I get my brows like in the above photo so I thought I'd give you an update on how I do them now as it's changed a bit over the past months!.

Left to Right - Mac Beguile Brow Set, Mac Duo in Nylon + Charcoal Brown, Tweezerman Mini Tweezers,
 Revlon Angled Brush, Maybelline Wax Pencil.

Step 1. I make sure I only tweeze stray hairs on the bottom of my eyebrows to keep them at their natural shape and avoid a disaster at all costs!.

Step 2. I then brush them through with the spooly on the end of the maybelline pencil. I never actually use the pencil side because it just makes my eyebrows look thin and bleurgh.

Step 3. I then use my revlon angled brush with the charcoal brown eyeshadow and draw a line underneath my brows following their shape to make sure they're defined. I then fill them in softly making sure I don't press to hard because again full on brows doesn't suit me at all. When I can't be bothered I fill in only my natural shape as it's way easier. However when I'm going out and I'm going to have a lot of make up on my eyes I drag the powder up a tiny bit making sure I still follow my natural shape exactly. I think the main thing to do is use fresh powder on the end of your eyebrows and then use the rest of whatever is there for the middle to front as this makes them look a lot more natural!.

Step 4. If I can be bothered (aka im going out) I'll use the other end of the revlon brush with the nylon eyeshadow under my eyebrows to make the shape stand out a little bit more then blend it down.

Step 5. Finally I then use the Mac Brow Set to set my eyebrows in place. This just makes sure the colour stays put the entire day and I normally use it to push the hairs up at the front of my eyebrows a little bit more in order to create a more natural look (well as natural as you can get with filled in eyebrows).

I understand this look isn't for everyone and most people will think I'm an idiot for spending so much time on such a trivial thing but I don't think my eyebrows have ever looked better! :)


  1. I use an angle brush and shadow too to fill my eyebrows :) So much better than pencil isn't it!

    I use the HD Brow palette though but I fancy trying this MAC one!
