I have a confession to make.
I’ve hated my eyebrows for just about my entire life. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve thought they were too bushy and too dark.
It makes me sad to think that as a little girl I was so self-conscious about them, but I really was. I remember wanting to get rid of them when I was in maybe 4th or 5th grade. I was on a trip to the Grand Canyon and I begged my sister to tweeze them in the back of the car on the vacation. She did, it hurt, and I was splotchy red for the remainder of the trip. Ouch.
Fast forward 20 years…I’m finally embracing my full brows and I’m totally behind the new filled-in, well-defined eyebrow trend (let’s please keep it trendy for as long as possible!) In fact, I’ve gotten so many compliments on my eyebrows that I have really grown to love taking some extra time to fill them in and make them a little bit “bolder.”
So I thought it would be fun to show you guys the product I’m loving lately that really helps make my brows pop, without looking like they’re drawn on with a sharpie.
It’s called Brow Wiz and I picked it up at Sephora. I just had them try out a few colors on me to find the perfect shade for my brows.
On one end is the actual pencil and the other end has a nice eyebrow brush. I typically take the pencil and lightly fill in any sparse areas to make them look darker. Then I flip the stick over and comb my eyebrows through with the brush. You can also use the brush to lighten up some of the pencil color if it gets a bit too dark in certain areas.
Finally, to highlight my brows even more, I swipe on a light shimmery eyeshadow across my brow bone.
And that’s about all the extra time I add to my beauty routine to make my brows fuller and more defined. Ever since I started doing this, my makeup doesn’t feel complete unless I’ve spent a few minutes working on my brows. I think it just makes my face and eyes look that much better.
It feels great to finally celebrate this part of me that I’ve tried to alter my entire life. Even if fuller eyebrows go out of style soon, I’m still sticking with this look…because it’s a trait I should have embraced a long time ago.
