Current Eyebrow Routine

Current Eyebrow Routine

Ever since I started filling in my brows, I can't go out without doing it. I don't know what it is about brows, but they give you a totally different look, which I love. At some point in my life, thin eyebrows were cool and in the attempt to follow the trend, I may have overplucked {I know I'm not the only one}. Now that big full brows are all the hype (which I like a lot because it looks amazing with my fro), I have been regrowing my brows. I've used a few methods which I think are working, so maybe I'll put together a post on that later. For now, let's focus on filling our brows.

Step by step guide to the perfect brows

Step 1. Brush the brows

My eyebrows are quite rugged and uneven at the moment as I try to grow them out, but I've been able to work with them without a lot of fuss. I start off by giving them a good brush in the direction I want them to lay. 

Step 2. Fill in the brows

Last year, I switched from using an eyebrow pencil to mastering the art of brow gelcreams. I am currently using the MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme and loving the results. Most of the time, I use the Nanshy angled eyeliner brush. I start on the outer corners and work my way towards the middle. Once I get to where my brows start I blend upwards because this tends to give it the most natural look.

Step 3. Brush again

Brush through the brows using the same eyebrow brush in step 1 to blend the colour and give it a more natural look. Even though we'll tame the brows in the next step, I still never skip this step as I think the result differs.

Step 4. Apply a brow gel

Apply the Rimmel Brow this Way Styling Gel to hold them in place all day. You can read my full review on this product here.


How to fill your eyebrows with eyebrow gel


This gives me the perfect brows which are always on fleek, and I love it. I can't believe it took me so long to try out eyebrow gels only because I was afraid I'd make a mess and look horrible. It isn't as difficult as it looks and the results are way better than using an eyebrow pencil.
