Bare Minerals Brow Color/Bobbi Brown Eye Brow Brush

12 Jan

If you didn’t pick this up in my Tweezerman review, I’m obsessed with eyebrows. Like many women, If I use one makeup product in the morning, it’s mascara. If I use two, it’s mascara and brow filler. Strong brows are back, baby, and I love it.

I like using loose powder for my brows because it’s easier on the rough-bristle brush I use than a solid powder is. Plus, I think it’s easier to control how much powder ends up on my brows. Bare Mineral’s brow colorĀ (I use Brunette) makes Thakoon-like brows a breeze.

Bare Minerals makes a good brow brush, but I prefer Bobbi Brown’s. The bristles are coarser and sparser, so they more closely resemble brow hair and therefore provide natural-looking enhanced brows. A brush that has finer and tightly packed bristles can easily make brows look painted on.

I use a small amount of powder and use short, fast strokes to mimic brow hairs. The whole process only takes 30 seconds, and it makes a huge difference in the way I look. If you have a shadow that matches your brows, go ahead and try that before making the plunge. You’ll be blown away by how big a difference brow definition makes. The Bobbi brush is a must-have, though. I’ve tried others, and nothing compares to the look you can achieve with this brush.

The brow filler is $11, but don’t let the tiny pot fool you. This powder will last and last; plus it comes in six different colors, so you’re able to get a close match. The BB brush is $25, and I can’t sing its praises enough. Fill your brows, beauties! It’s one of the fastest things you can do to transform your face each morning.

    Defined brows are so lovely. I agree about the powders. I’ve been using the same (SAMPLE) pot of loose powder to fill my brows for years now. Good post! šŸ™‚
