One particular part of our makeup routines that differs in a very, very big way, is our brows. We all have our own favourite brow style, brow products, brow colours etc.
None of these products are new to the blog and I love them equally. But I thought it would be great to let you know when I choose to use each of these products, as well as to show you that these are such holy grail items – not just once off review and forget products.
Behold, my version of The Ultimate Brow Routine.
Benefit Cosmetics Gimmie Brow and Anastasia Brow Duo in Ebony are the parts that remain true from my original brow routine here. If you don’t want to have a read of that whole post, essentially I just brush the lighter Anastasia powder into my brows and set it in place with Gimmie Brow. I typically use these two products when I want more of a natural, everyday look. Or, when I am in a rush.
When I’m looking for something more dramatic and night time appropriate, I cannot go past Chi Chi Cosmetics Brow Pomade in Black Brown. I know that there is a bagillion other brow pomades out there, and I haven’t personally tried any of them. But, wow this is great. And, I have heard of people who used to love ABH’s pomade, but are now Chi Chi converts. If you’d like to read more, I have a further indepth post here.
This brow pomade is essentially a thick, insanely pigmented gel. Using an angled brush, I dip it into the formula and then wipe it all around the lid. The reason I do this is because if I applied it straight to my brows it is much too pigmented. Playing around with the product in the lid, I then start applying the product on the inner part of my eyebrow, working towards the outer. Whatever is left, I use on the inner third. When applying the pomade, I do it with a very light hand, in small upward movements.
After my day and night eyebrow routine, I make sure to brush through with a spooley.
