Perfect eyebrows tips and tricks
Lucky enough to have brows, but isn’t thick and full. I still need a little touch-up. Ever since I’ve started drawing my brows, it became my habit. The first thing I do after a shower in the morning: Draw my eyebrows. Otherwise, I feel something is missing. I’m not confident to meet people.
Been using Sephora powder brows kit for one and the half year, yeap, it lasts for one and the half year and I used it every single day. It was my first time using powder form, it took me some time to get used to it. Before that, I used cyber colors auto eyebrow pen, restocked a few times, I would say it’s pretty good and the price is reasonable. This time, I’m back with auto brows pen! I find it easier to get a defined brow.
Stumbled upon Benefit Cosmetics Defined and Refined Brows Kit while scrolling Sephora website, it has anything we want to define, fill and set the eyebrows. I bought it at RM90 instead of RM169. What a good deal. The only color choice I had was 02 / Light.
I always wanted to try Benefit Cosmetics Brows product because the packaging is attractive and I love the design of every item. By just looking at the metal box, I couldn’t resist buying it. The brows kit comes with Mini-size BROWVO! Condition Primer, Full-size Precisely, My Brow Pencil (RM117), Full-size High Brow Highlight & Lift Pencil (RM108.), Brow mapping tool and Tips & Tricks.
RM169 for a full brows set is totally worth it!
Make sure to twist until you see the “white” liquid for the first time before used and subsequently twice once for each brow.
No doubts, the nutrients rich conditioner primer gives a fuller and healthier eyebrows. It acts like brows wax/gel that keeps the brows in place. It’s a lot easier to draw with eyebrows auto pen, I just have to touch up a little to define the brows. Draw it lightly or use a lighter color if you do not want to look like “shin chan” as the conditioner primer will enhance the color. One of the tips is applying it at night before sleep.
“Your left brow and right brow seems uneven” or “Your left brow is thicker than your right brow” YEASss… I get that all the time. The mapping tool helps in getting rid of all these problems. However, I wouldn’t want to waste time measuring..it’s gonna take 10 minutes to draw my eyebrows instead of 5 minutes? Unless I have to attend some special occasions, the mapping tool may be really useful.
First, align the base line with the tip of the nose. Mark the top and bottom of the brows, then tilt the mapping tool out of your pupil position to mark the arch. Lastly, tilt the mapping tool to mark the end of the brows.
Precisely, My Brow PencilThe name, Precisely, says it all. It’s thin, more strokes and effort needed but you get to draw precisely for more defined brows. 02/Light color suitable for light brown hairs. I do not have a photo showing it because I broke mine! Dropped on the floor for 2-3 times and it’s gone. Anyone out there who is as clumsy as me, please consider.
Connect the points with the auto brows pen and fill up space in between. Brush it to make it even and a soft looking brows.
The texture of the highlighter is creamy but it can be blended easily with the fingertip without leaving patchy colors. The linen pink shade illuminates the eye area, it gives the dimension and lifts the brows instantly. The eyes look brighter and glowy in a way.
I use this High Brow Highlight & Lift Pencil to highlight my nose for all-
Voila! I’m able to walk confidently on the street or in the shopping mall now. Hahah…
Overall, this is a perfect eyebrows kit for anyone who wishes to achieve perfect brows on every occasion. To me, an eyebrow autopen is more than enough for my daily make up routine. I personally prefer Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil (Love this! will blog about it soon) than Precisely, My Brow Pencil because less effort is needed. I’ll use the primer and highlighter when I’m attending party/events. As for the mapping tool… it’s a little time consuming unless I have too much time to get myself prepared.
