BROWS. They’ve made a HUGE comeback recently. Gone are the days of Drew Barrymore’s teeny tiny drawn on arches and now, the bigger, the better. Bushy, even! Brows are (unfortunately) often overlooked and, from what I can tell, it’s usually because people don’t know how to fill them in or don’t want to take the time to using multiple products to achieve that bushy brow look.
Adding definition to your brows helps to make your eyes pop, wakes your face up and even makes you look younger. The good news is that there’s an easy, quick way to fill in your brows and it makes a HUGE difference. I realized the pictures had in my previous brow tutorial might not be cutting it when it comes to showing you how to fill them in so I decided to make a short video to help. I used this technique on every bride (and bridesmaid!) I’ve done this past summer. I used the same product for all of them: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. It’s the quickest, easiest product and comes in whatever color you need.
But first, a little demonstration on the power of a well-defined brow:
On Rachael I used Brow Wiz in Caramel and stuck to her basic natural shape. Darkening her brows just a tad made a huge difference in bringing out her eyes and making them pop. She was definitely feeling the results! 🙂
I went a little bit more dramatic with Janine because she has darker hair and a bit more of it to work with. (This is one of the things I realized with my many many attempts at turning my own brows into the trendy bushy brows of the season . . . if the hair isn’t there, it’s hard to fake it no matter how many products you use.) Janine was able to pull off the big brow look of the season. I made hers bigger and darker using Brow Wiz in Soft Brown.
One Brow Filled In:
Here’s one more example of the importance of the brow . . . they’re especially important if you’re going for a darker smokey eye.
So . . . HOW do you do it?? Here it is.
In the video I finished the look using Benefit’s Gimme Brow in light/medium, which is a colored brow gel (looks like a mini mascara) that enhances individual hairs. You can use this over the Brow Wiz or on its own if you already have some brows to thicken them and add dimension.
Let me know if you have any questions!
