Bold Brow Routine

Brow can make you or break you.
You need to find what shape, colour and style that compliments you best and once you've got that down your good to go.

I'm going to talk through my bold strong brow routine which i tend to do on nights out whereas during the day my brows are much lighter and more natural.

My routine isn't special but i finally found a way that works for me and gets me a result that i like every time. 

Maintaining my brows is defiantly the hardest. I pluck my brows myself and shape them. I like doing my own as i have complete control and only have myself to blame if i mess them up.
I trim the front of my brows only, brushing the hairs up and carefully cutting any that are too long. This gives a much tidier appearance all together and a better shape.

First i brush all my hairs up with a spoolie brush and follow the hair growth. Then i draw a light line under the brow so i get a guideline of the shape and i work my way up from there. 

Second i use light hair like strokes to fill in working my way bottom to top and get heavier at the tail and where i need more colour. I have quite shaped brows so i usually follow them and arch them more. At this point i have a pretty strong brow and i will usually leave it here, but if I'm going all out ill carve it out more and highlight the brow bone.

I use a yellow tone concealer or a concealer lighter than my skin tone and sharpen up the original line i made at the beginning and perfecting the shape i want. Then take the remaining concealer on the outer tail on top to sharpen them just a tad more and cleaning up any mistakes i may of made.
Lastly i blend out all the concealer carefully and i get a strong bold brow with a highlighted brow bone and then ill continue with the rest of eye makeup.

 My holy grail products are the famous Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Brunette which is true brown with warm under tones. It works for me as my hair is warm but i will probably opt for the soft or ash brown in future. A recent discovery for me is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel and i can't live without it now. Its glues your brows in place all day without feeling heavy or crispy. Both of these products are defiantly worth the investment.
