Anastasia Beverly Hills, Brows 101, Eyebrows

Eyebrows. You either love them or hate them. I love them but they are extremely high maintenance - the undergrowth, the unibrow, the filling in or if your eyebrows or twins or sisters? I think mine are sisters! For my eyebrows are really important to me as they frame my face and they just have to look good. I envy those who have perfect eyebrows who hardly need to get their eyebrows done but there are ways that you can make your eyebrows look 'on fleek'.


There are many ways to shape and tame your eyebrows. Plucking, waxing or threading are the three main ways to shape your eyebrows. Plucking the eyebrows involves using a tweezer and plucking out the stray hairs that don't fit in with the shape of your desired eyebrow. Waxing is the quickest out of all the three ways as it is applying a hot oil on your eyebrows and using waxing strips to shape your eyebrows. While my favourite method of threading involves a thread and threading your eyebrows. I have been through all three of them and personally threading your eyebrows is the best way to maintain your eyebrows. It lasts longer in my opinion in comparison to waxing which I found lasted me about 2 weeks. On average, my eyebrows can stay in shape for about a month without getting them threaded.

Filling them in

I have only ever used eyebrow pencils as they are just quicker for me to use on a daily basis and I am a little sceptical about using eyebrow promades. However, at the moment I have been loving the Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyebrow Promade which stays on all day, the promade doesn't rub off and keeps my eyebrows looking fresh.  I alternate between the Sleek Brow Stylist or the MUA eyebrow pencils, I love both of them but if I had to make a preference it would be the Sleek Brow Stylist as it has a crayon-like pencil. 


Tweezers - There will be times where you're doing your makeup or examining your face (we all do it, don't lie) and you come across that stray hair in the middle of your eyebrows or underneath. Tweezers will be your friend, but please do not go overboard and start plucking your eyebrows until they become sticks. I use any tweezers from Superdrug which are very easy to use. 

Scissors - To trim those long eyebrows hairs, any pair of small angled eyebrow scissors would be great. If you haven't had your eyebrows done in a while, it would be ideal to trim your long eyebrow hairs which make your eyebrows look a lot neater. 

Eyebrow spoolies - the majority of eyebrow pencils come with eyebrow brushes so may not need to buy one separately. They are especially essential for blending out any eyebrow product applied to make your eyebrows look natural. 

Keeping eyebrows neat

Concealer - If you haven't your eyebrows done in a while, using concealer underneath your eyebrows to shape them and define them makes your eyebrows look nice. Concealer can also be used on a day to day basis as part of a makeup routine which is mainly used to highlight underneath the brows as well as shape the brows more clearly.
