I am a firm believer that good brows can completely transform the face, just looking at those rather scary pictures of celebrities with their eyebrows photoshopped out is enough to convince you (and scar you for life). Now don't get me wrong, I don't particularly think my brows are anything spectacular, and they certainly aren't on par with those amazing gradient style brows that I would have no chance of pulling off. I've got to make do with what I've got, so for the time being, presentable, neat and natural brows are the way forward for me, and that task has certainly become a lot easier since discovering these three products!
I recently decided to upgrade my 10 billion year old tweezers to the ever so pretty, baby pink Anastasia pair. They are so precise, they pull out even the shortest of hairs with ease and make the dreaded mission of plucking the old brows a total breeze. They even survived an accidental whirl in the washing machine, which I would not recommend doing, (although I would recommend that you check your laundry before you stuff it all carelessly into the washer, oops!).
To fill in my brows I used to use the Anastasia Brow Wiz, but I've since discovered the Soap & Glory Archery brow pencil and I can tell you that it's identical to the Brow Wiz except a whole lot cheaper; £8 or £16 for the same product, I know which one I'm gonna buy. The only difference between the two that I can tell, is that the Anastasia version offers a wide shade range whereas Soap & Glory only has two. I'm using 'Blondeshell' which is the lightest out of the two which in my opinion isn't really that light (I used medium ash in the Brow Wiz just for reference). That being said it's a really great product, the spoolie on one end is great for combing through the brows and shaping them before you apply the product, and it's also pretty handy to go over afterwards to get rid of any excess product. The pencil end is really tiny so you can mimic fine brow hairs and get much more natural looking brows. It's honestly pretty hard to mess up with it, so you can avoid frightening people with eyebrows that take over your entire face (no offence if you like that look).
To finish I set my brows with a brow gel which is a must for me, nobody wants to check their appearance at the end of the day and realise they've been sporting out of place, scarecrow brows all afternoon. I use the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel as it's just the best and when I use it my eyebrows literally do not budge all day! I've tried various other brow gels, even the Mac one which is pretty poor compared to Anastasia's version. I feel like I've written Anastasia about a million times in this post, so I'm sorry for any overkill!
