How to: Fake gorgeous brows!

Hey beauty babes! 

Like a lot of women, I spent my youth over plucking my brows. This has left me with brows that are patchy, sparse and nearly impossible to regrow. Good brows are so incredibly important! They frame your face and give it structure, plus they highlight your eyes. Have you ever seen someone with terrible brows? Something just looks off regardless of how amazing the rest of their makeup may be. This has been a long struggle but after a lot of testing I have found the few products that will completely change your brows!

Billion Dollar Brows- Brow Boost $29

Available at- Billion Dollar Brows and Amazon
This first product is a gel serum that enhances brow growth. This is essential for those of us who went over board plucking or had a bad wax job! It has a doe foot applicator and a slightly milky color that dries clear. Apply this directly to your brows every night before bed and in a month you will start to see a dramatic difference. You only need to use a small amount so this tube will last you months. I was skeptical at first but after using this product for several months I can vouch for it's magical results. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills- Brow Wiz $21

Available at: Sephora, UltaAnastasia
This is an automatic brow pencil unlike any other. It comes in 7 shades which makes it easy to find your perfect match. At one end is the automatic pencil and on the other is a small spoolie. Using light strokes, outline the bottom and top of your brows. Then, fill in your brows with short light strokes. Finally, comb through your brows with the spoolie to blend everything together. This gives you the illusion of completely natural, flawless brows. I use the shade Caramel which is 1 shade lighter than my natural hair color. I have not been able to find any pencil that comes close to this. It gives you the most natural, full, gorgeous looking brows.  My only issue with this is it's time consuming. When you're in a hurry this may not be the best option. Typically it takes me about 10-15 minutes to do both brows with the Brow Wiz. 

Anastasia of Beverly Hills- Clear Brow Gel $22

Available at: Sephora, UltaAnastasia
I highly suggest you use this brow gel in combination with the Brow Wiz pencil. It keeps your brows in tact all day and locks in all of your hard work. You won't have to worry about your brows moving at all. It's dries quickly and completely clear. It doesn't flake and looks 100% natural.

Anastasia also makes a tinted brow gel for those of you who want extra coverage! Available in 6 shades for $22.

Benefit- Gimme Brow $22
Available at: Sephora, Ulta, Benefit, and HSN
This is my Hail Mary when I'm in a time crunch and I'm rushing out the door. It's a tinted gel with micro fibers that build up brow volume. It has a mini spoolie for the best control during application. It comes in 2 shades- Light/ Medium or Medium/ Deep (I use the Medium/ Deep). Simply comb through your brows and go over thinner areas to build volume. In 3 minutes you have great looking brows that everyone else will swear are real! If you happen to get product outside your brows just take a q-tip dipped in makeup remover to clean up the mistake. I use this product every day before work and it is the newest staple in my routine. I can't say enough great things about Gimme Brow!

I believe in investing in great quality products. I'm always an advocate for saving money and buying drug store products. However, there are certain products that can't be duplicated by cheaper brands. The products that will  dramatically change your look and are worth the extra money. Good brow products are definitely worth the investment!

  1. I love the fact that the Anastasia brow pencil comes in lots of shades. Sometimes it's really hard to find the perfect match because some brands only sell two different shades. I think i "need" some new brow products ;) ..Have a nice day! http://nadja-franco.blogspot.com
