My Holy Grail Brow Products & Routine!
*all products mentioned below are hyperlinked!*
*video at the bottom if you're lazy!*
STEP ONE: Spoolie
I use a regular brow spoolie (usually one on the back of my brow pencil) to brush my brow hairs in the right direction. They naturally like to do whatever they want but I need them in formation #ok.
STEP TWO: MAC Veluxe Brow Liner in “Taupe”
I like to use a lighter brown color on the front of my brows to help give a faded affect, rather that block-shaped brows. I also use this brush in small, steady stroking motions in order to create hair-like lines where my natural brow hairs are sparse. Always brush out the color with the spoolie to disperse the product.
STEP 3: MAC Veluxe Brow Liner in “Velvetstone”
This is the same exact type of brow liner as I used in the previous step, just a shade darker. I use this color to outline my brow shape towards the back to give me a guide on where I want to fill them in. It’s ok if your line doesn’t look extremely perfect, we will clean them up later.
STEP 4: Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in Shade #5
If you don’t care to be extra like me, you can use this brow pencil alone for step one, two, and three.. honestly, truly. I just feel like its a bit too thick and waxy to use in the front part of my brow. Like mentioned earlier I like to create hair-like lines on the front, and that is hard to achieve using this pencil. However, this pencil is amazing for filling in the brows. I still use stroking like motions so that it doesn’t look like one thick line. The more you stroke the pencil, the more natural your brows will look. It takes a bit more time, but it always come out perfect when I use this technique. Again, be sure to brush out the color with the spoolie to disperse the product.
STEP 5: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC45 & Angled Liner Brush
Some people like to use a concealer that is 20x lighter than their completion to clean up their brows…I just can’t. I prefer using a concealer that is barely one shade away from my skin color because it makes it super easy to blend out. NC45 is literally my favorite shade concealer for this step for my skin. I also like using a cream concealer over a liquid concealer because I feel like it’s not as messy. It’s also a lot easier to work with if you are a beginner. Using an angled brush of your choice, apply a small amount to the back of your hand to make sure there isn’t too much product on the brush. Then carve out those brows (precisely) until they are as clean and as straight as possible. This takes me 20 minutes on each brow… on a good day. Don’t judge me.
Step 6: Sigma e39 Buff & Blend Brush
BLEND THE CONCEALER! Please. I'm begging you to blend that concealer. I know It may seem weird that I use a shadow brush for this step but let me tell you nothing works better! This buff and blend brush easily smooths out the concealer without messing up your nice sharp brows. You can use a different shadow blending brush (as long as its very dense), your finger, a beauty blender, or any other blending tool for this step. Just don't ever skip it. Ever.
STEP 7: NARS Clear Brow Gel
This… (clears throat) This is the most important step of my entire routine. I was sleep on brow gels for a while and now that I’ve started there is no turning back. The purpose of a brow gel is not only to set your brows in place for long lasting wear, but also to lift the hairs and make them more apparent. This brow gel by NARS shapes and keeps arches in place for perfect definition. The precision tapered brush is so small and easy to work with. It really brings shape and definition to every angle while creating fuller, smoother brows. It’s amazing and your missing out if you don’t finish your brows off with this.
