Makeup Basics: Brows

Makeup basics


Makeup basics series continues! Brows are a very important part of the makeup. Good brows lift your eyes and do wonders for your whole look.

Before you start with the makeup, you should shape your brows. I recommend a professional to do that, that way you get the best possible shape for your brows. I personally like to do that. I let my beautician-friend pluck my brows for me ’cause she can look at them with a fresh pair of eyes. If I start to pluck them I easily pluck too much. You know? Anyway, brows are easier to do if you have a nice shape for them first. That way it’s easier to see where the brow colour should go.

There are different shapes for brows, but maybe this is the classic one (google).

Brow products also come in many forms. There are powders, gels, pens and waxes. For a beginner I would recommend powder or pen, ’cause it gives a more natural finish. But as always it’s up to you what formula you wanna use.



Zuii Organic Eyebrow Definer in Taupe
This is bomb. I couldn’t live without this! The brow colour is already in an angled shape, so it’s easy to apply. The formula also keeps the brows in place. This is simply the best brow product in the world.

Guerlain Eyebrow Pen in Blonde
This is a regular brow pen. This gives a really natural look. I use this if I’m in a hurry. The shade is a bit warm though.

NYX Tame&Frame in Blonde
 I thought this was a dupe for Anastasia but I’m not so sure. This is maybe more waxy? But anyway a great product and you get a nice brow with this.

Ecotools Angled Eyeliner Brush
This is my favourite brow brush. Does the job.

Stagecolour Eyebrow Powders
 I bought these from work some time ago. I don’t know the shade. I use these more as an eyeshadow though.
