DON'T GET BROW-BEATEN !



                                                                                                                                                                            I thought I would share some of my favourite items that I use that can make your eyebrows look great.Eyebrows done in the right shape can make such a difference, even help give you a real lift. There are some really  easy and affordable items out there and below is a list I hope you may find helpful,                         


This make-up mirror from boots no7 is one of the best I have had, its really magnified, and lights up. This is the best thing for plucking your eyebrows or checking for stray hairs. It makes such a           difference if you can see them so much more clearly, and great if your eyesight isn't great.              

If you pluck your own eyebrows, that's great, but there are many of us that prefer to get them done professionally. Waxing is very quick,Threading takes longer but you will get a much more sharper finish. Some advise : If you go anywhere to get your eyebrows waxed or threaded, make sure the therapist is very aware of the shape you desire, take some pictures of eyebrows you like the shape of, so they know what type of desired affect you want. Any decent therapist will advise you if your not sure which type of shape will suit you.


A really good pair of tweezers are important, Tweezerman are great, you can get them slanted or rounded, They will grab the finest of hairs.


Eyebrow Tinting can be a saviour. Especially if your eyebrows are grey or sparse. Eyebrow tinting thickens the hair. The most important thing beforehand is to make sure you are not sensitive to the dye. I recommend this is done professionally in a salon, it is not expensive and only takes about twenty minutes in all. Make sure you tell the therapist what desired colour you want, natural or dark, depending what your hair colour is, ask for their advise, shades can be mixed together. But if you go to a different salon, make sure you are sensitive checked again. They do not all use the same brand.
You can buy your own eyebrow tint kit, invite a friend round and do each others. You can buy the kit as shown above in most beauty retailers. Remember to check your not sensitive.                           


Eyebrow stencils are a handy little gadget to have in your make-up bag, you can find these in most beauty suppliers. You can use these to create the shape you want your eyebrow to be and then pluck them into shape. You can also place them onto your eyebrow and use eyebrow shadow. They really give a defined shape, make sure you use the right shade. For Blonde, grey looks great, yes grey! try it and see!.                                                                                                                                                Eyebrow powder like the one pictured above is    great to use with the stencils mentioned above. Its thicker than eyeshadow, and feels a little waxy. It will stay in place and not wear off until you cleanse it off. There are many different brands out there, have a look on Amazon and search eyebrow stencils, the powder will be on the same page. Bobbi    Brown also do a great little eyebrow kit as do HD Brows and Hi Brow
                                                                    Hi Brow kit

HD Brow kit
  The Hi Brow kit is great value because you get the stencils added in its little kit. But for the Rolls Royce of eyebrows try getting the full works at a salon with HD Brows. at a salon, they will       thread,tint, and finish your brows to perfection                                                                             
        
                                                     
Last on my list is Eyebrow fix, like a clear mascara, brush this over your finished brows and they will stay in place. You can buy this from The Body Shop or Superdrug or on line beauty retailers.              
I hope you have found any of these ideas helpful

  2. Love this post, Laurie! I probably need to stop tweezing my eyebrows (my best friend would probably dance a jig if I would) and start getting them done. I appreciate your tips on that. Also appreciate the stencils advice. I didn't know you could get stencils by themselves. I got some with an eyebrow kit that I no longer use because of the ingredients. I'll have to look into that. Thanks, doll!

  5. I have such sparse eyebrows that I look so washed out if I don't have them filled daily. I have been so tempted to get them tattoo but I am too scared.

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!

  6. I have always tweezed my eyebrows and used really good tweezers - they make a huge difference. I fully admit I never get round to any more than that these days. Can't remember the last time I even wore make-up! But well groomed eyebrows are a thing of beauty :) #brilliantblogposts
