We've all heard it time and time again, "brows define your face." I often joke that I can't leave the house without my brows. But it's true. My makeup routine isn't complete until I shape and fill them. I also admit that I'm more prone to groom and pluck my brows than shave my legs (sorry hubby).
Over the years, my eyebrows, and the products that I use, have drastically changed. Right now, I need something quick. I need something that will outlast my long day and be child/sweat proof. I've found just that. My beauty practices are constantly evolving, but this brow routine is here to stay. Enjoy!
I use the following 3 products for my brows:
Clinique Instant Lift for Brows (soft brown)
Clinique Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse (soft brown)
Clinique Airbrush Concealer (neutral fair)
Brush through and groom the brows. My preference is to get them threaded every 3-4 weeks for maintenance and pluck in between.
Using Clinique Instant Lift for Brows, underline the brows and create symmetry if possible. One of my brows grows closer towards the center than the other so I fake this symmetry by using featherlike strokes.
Using Clinique Instant Lift for Brows draw and connect the top part of the brows. This is where I have the most difficulty. One of my brows naturally grows with a sharper arch than the other. Thankfully, I can still create symmetry by using delicate strokes once again!
Using Clinique Instant Lift for Brows, fill in brows from center to the outside. Less is more! Remember to use a light hand and subtle strokes.
This is optional! Sometimes I skip this step if I am in a complete rush, but it definitely makes a difference. I also recommend this step in between brow grooming to hide sparse hairs.
Using Clinique Airbrush Concealer, I underline my brows once again to create an extra lift and sharpness. Blend out using your ring finger or a concealer brush.
Using Clinique Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse, set your brows! I start from the center and work my way towards the arch. This will ensure your brows are locked and loaded.
