Alright, alright, alright. This post was bound to happen. First of all, my eyebrows are naturally bleach blonde. Seriously if I don't color them in, you might look at me and think I don't have any eyebrows at all. It's wack.
Exhibit A) filled in and shaped brows:
Exhibit B) there are eyebrows there, I promise.
I know, I know, it's hard for me to look at, too.
Public enemy #1
Let me start by saying, if your brows are as invisible as mine are, powder is NOT FOR YOU! When I used to use powder *cringe* it didn't do anything for my brows, it basically just looked like I had some brown stuff under the white blonde hairs that were over my eyes. They LOOKED like I put power on them. No bueno. The problem with powder is that it doesn't look "natural" and it doesn't camouflage light eyebrows. AND it rubs off so dang easy,
The best stuff ever.
I've tried a LOT of different products to fill in my eyebrows. One day I went into Sephora for some brow pomade I had heard about. The shade I wanted wasn't in stock so a nice employee tried out a few other products on me. I fell in love with aqua brow!
I love love love Aqua Brow by Forever Makeup!! I get mine in the light blonde shade #10. I've done a lot of research on good brow tips and something I 100% agree with is that your brows should be 2 shades DARKER than your hair color. I totally agree because this helps add contrast to your look. Obviously it might differ if you have black hair, but I would say typically, if you don't have black or super dark brown hair, going 2 shades darker with your brows is the way to go.
Something I've learned with this stuff is you can kind of control how dark it is. If you layer it, it will get a little darker but if you add a little bit of it at a time, it can also be pretty light. If I get it too dark, I usually lightly rub a q-tip over my eyebrows to get some off so it isn't too dramatically dark.
-it's waterproof. I really REALLY love that it is waterproof. I've gone swimming while wearing it multiple times and it really does stay on! If I swim for a really long time then obviously it comes off a little bit, but it still stays on for the most part. It's nice because I don't wear eye makeup when I go swimming but I wear the aqua brow and it makes me feel like I still look kind of cute haha
-It lasts forever! You literally only need to use a drop of it (I put the drop on the back of my hand) and it covers both brows easily. I always try to use the smallest amount ever and I still always have extra that I sadly wipe off and throw away. I'm not one to spend more than like $10 on makeup but for $20 this usually lasts me at least 6-8 months. I always buy mine from Sephora because if there is even one tiny thing wrong with it, you can exchange it for a new one! I've used Aqua Brow for a few years and it always lasts sooo long!
-It dyes the brow hairs so it looks way more natural! It's of course not perminate dye, but it disguises the light blonde hairs for the time being that you wear it!
Part two will include a brow shaping tutorial! yay brow shaping!
