The Brow Diaries

A large chunk of my life has been dedicated to maintaing my brows. Sad but true. I've had some waxing incidents and some mono-brow horrors, but most importantly, I've never over plucked. My brow obsession led me last year to having a picture of the ultimate Delevigne brow pinned on my uni bedroom wall...but perhaps I shouldn't have admitted that. Anyhow, the point I'm getting at is I've got quiet a few products in my makeup bag dedicated to getting these brows in grooming perfection.

A trusty boy, and the first member to begin the collection was Benefit Brow Zings. This is the ultimate handy brow tool, with wax one side a powder the other, and some mini brushes and tweezers so your brows can be looked after on the go. I now prefer to powder through (obviously with the brow brush of Mac 266) and then apply the wax just a little at the front.

My favourite, or everyday go to I should say, is the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil. With a spooley one end and a lovely creamy wax pencil the other this one is so quick and easy to use. I always get a thick, bold brow with this one. Recently however, my friends bought me the Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift Pencil and I have to say not only is the colour the perfect match to my brows but it creates an equal if not better brow than the Hourglass...expect big things from this!

The final pencil comes in the shame of Soap and Glory's 2-in-1 Archery Brown Pencil. This is a much smaller pencil and at the moment takes a bit more time for me to use this so I can my brows nice and even and not too scary. However, for the price this is seriously a firm contender with the luxury items of my collection.

And last, but not least, is my Benefit gimme Brow. I blooming love this and thing Benefit should be awarded a brow crown for its creating. Just a simple little mascara like wand that you sweep through the brows to shape and colour. I like to apply this on top on my Hourglass to keep the place nice in shape or on a more natural makeup day when I don't want too much colour in my brows. 

Its a long story when it comes to brows I'm afraid. What are your brow go to's?
