Try It Thursday, 9-10-2015
So, eyebrows. It seems everyone's been on the full brow trend these last few years. And while I have always loved the full, natural brows seen on Brooke Shields, women everyone have gone to the complete extreme, wearing what Wayne Goss calls instagram brows. To me, it looks very cartoonish and I'm not trying to live my daily life looking like my eyebrows are the heroines in the newest Disney film. That's why I love that celebrities like Emilia Clarke and Cara Delevingne have been rocking the full natural brows for me to obsess over!
My own eyebrows are naturally full but I can always use a little help with shaping and beautifying them. I've recently started using everyone's favorite eyebrow product, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow ($18), and it has completely changed my life! It allows me to draw little hair-like strokes without looking like they are tattooed on. Check out Pixiwoo's eyebrow tutorial to see some expert eyebrow hair drawing skills.
It takes a very precise amount of pressure to get the little hairs looking thin enough, dark enough and more natural enough but when I get it right, it looks amazing. There are times when I do struggle though. Luckily, I follow ABH on instagram and they reposted the video below from one of their own lash artists, Jasmine Kim:
These brows are nice and full but she has some holes around and inside the brows. Brow makeup can be too harsh on dark full brows, so drawing some hair strokes with the dip brow can be natural and long lasting👍🏻 #Anastasiabeverlyhills #fullbrows #browmakeup #browtips #tutorials #videos #allaboutthearch #allaboutthebrow #browaddicts #browsonpoint #dipbrow #perfectarch #perfectbrows #eyebrows #tweeze #wax
And here is another technique Jasmine uses:
Coloring the top of the brow always gives a timeless look for any occasion👍🏻 when you have some of your own hair, try using just a powder for a natural look. #Anastasiabeverlyhills #tutorials #videos #makeuptips #makeupvideos #browsonpoint #browmakeup #allaboutthearch #allaboutthebrow #justbrows #fullbrows #perfectbrows #perfectarch #browtips
Amazing, right? I tried this method of swiping the product on the tail end of my brows and it gave me such a natural tail! Then I use the point of the brush to draw the little hairs in the front of my brows. Check out the pictures below:
I also got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Pencil that Jasmine uses in her video. Even better, Ulta has a deal where if you buy at least $35 worth of ABH products, you get the Pro Pencil free. SCORE! Now if I can just find a good brow gel to replace the one I just recently used up...
And just for kicks, here are other brow looks I tried this week:
Until next time!
