Is it me or did manicuring eyebrows all of a sudden become a priority in getting ready in the morning? I remember this time last year, I wasn’t too into the whole eyebrow thing. Boy have the moments changed. It all started when I started hearing all about Anastasia from Beverly Hills. Hence the name, “Anastasia Beverly Hills.” I first started with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyebrow Gel in clear, $22.
It was a no-go for me. It made my eyebrows crunchy, and the slightest move of my eyebrow hair it flaked. Then, I moved on to Anastasia Eyebrow Wiz in soft brown, $21.
It was really nice and easy to use – this is what I grab when I have little to no time to spare. It’s like a quick zip…zip. When I discovered Anastasia’s Tinted Brow Gel in Brunette, $22 was when my hair colorist decided to try and make me a blonde. This was before she told me it would take several tries to get the tone where she wanted it to be. I bought the tinted brow gel to lighten up my brows because it looked so weird that my brows were stark black.
Tarte also has a waterproof brow mousse that works lovely. Check it out here. It fills in the brow easily, but I have to admit, a little goes a long way. While it is quite hard to fix after you’ve gone overboard. I start with a little mousse on the brush, and gradually build up to my liking. Once you’ve mastered this technique – it will be hard to change to anything else. It is very good. I also think it’s convenient that it comes with a double ended brush (spoolie & angled brush).
Two of my favorites eyebrow essentials are Benefit Gimme Brow in medium/deep, $18. The other is Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in deep brown, $7.99. I think they have two or three other shades. Both of these products are amazing. They keep your brows in good shape all throughout the day without retouching. If you have the budget to splurge I would go for Gimme Brow over Brow Drama. Maybelline Brow Drama is a really great alternative drugstore option. If you’re anything like me, I was so confused by so many eyebrow product options. I didn’t know which ones to choose, let alone which ones would work for me. I didn’t want to end up overspending, returning or exchanging, and wasting so much time. I don’t want you to go through it either – I hope this was helpful!
