Hey loves! It’s time for another Alphabet Challenge! Wanna join the Alphabet Challenge? See how at the end of the post!
I deeply apologise because this is up so late, but I Co-Hosted the Beauty & Fashion Bloggers’ Blog Hop on Saturday and I was out the whole day yesterday. I really hope you guys don’t mind but here is my post for this week’s Alphabet Challenge.
B is for Brows!
B for Brows! Filling in your eyebrows are super important! Eyebrows frame your face and can make you look neat and bright. This is one of the most important steps in your makeup routine even if you have full eyebrows. It can make a HUGE difference and light up your entire face.
So, today’s post will be all about brows. I will be showing you guys my brow routine, how I like to fill them in, where I shape my brows and the products I use.
Where I Shape My Brows
This is my eyebrows not filled in. I get them waxed at the Benefit Brow Bar every 2-3 months to maintain the shape. The last time I went (in this picture) was two weeks ago. I am very impressed by their service and the outcome of my brows.
You can get them waxed at the Benefit Brow Bar for RM42. They recommend a monthly visit but I really am not willing to spend RM42 on my brows monthly. Going once every 2-3 months will be fine if you tweeze/shave the little wild hairs that grow out.
The Products I Use
1) e.l.f Eyebrow Kit in Medium
2) Naked Palette (Virgin eyeshadow)
3) BH Cosmetics Spoolie Brush
4) e.l.f Flawless Concealer Brush
My Brow Routine
What I do is really simple.
1) Brush out my eyebrows with a spoolie.
2) Using the angled brush that comes in my eyebrow kit, I start filling in my brows with the powder from my eyebrow kit starting from the arch outwards. I like the arch and the end of my eyebrows to be a little bit darker.
3) Then, holding up any brush vertically from the side of my nose and the inner corner of my eye, I draw a guide line to know where to stop. This is where your brows should start.
4) Fill dem bad boyz in!
*I promise my eyebrows are not this light in real life. The shade I use matches my hair pretty well.
This is how it turns out if I fill in my brows according to “where my brows should start” but I really don’t like this look as I think it looks too harsh on my face. So what I do is, using a little teeeeny bit of water, I blend out the inner corner of my eyebrows to create a soft, blended look (like below).
5) Finally, using the wax part of my eyebrow kit, I layer the wax on top of the powder to set it in.
6) Then, using Virgin Eyeshadow from my UD Naked Palette, I highlight my browbone with the e.l.f Flawless Concealer Brush.
7) Tadaaa! That’s it!
