Eyebrows are probably the single most important piece when putting together your face. Even if you don’t wear makeup having well-groomed and shaped brows really make the difference in your look; brows are the frame of the face. Now if there was ever a piece of beauty advice I wish I listened to it would be don’t over pluck your brows. Ugh coming up as a teenager I had my hard-headed moments and of course back at that time circa the mid to late 90’s thinner brows were in.
I spent way too many nights with tweezers and a magnifying mirror, a bad combination for someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing. Let’s not even talk about the night I let my friend tweeze my brows into the thinnest lines possible, A MESS. I wish I could say as I hot older I left my over-plucking days behind me, but nope. I should never be allowed to own tweezers, I’m just not responsible with them. Every grooming session starts the same and I tell myself I am just going to pluck the few random hairs. A bit later I’m staring in the mirror wonder what happened, I really need to leave my shaping to a professional.
So here I am again trying to keep my hands off my brows as I attempt for the 500th time to let them grow in. In the meantime I have reached for these great brow sculpting pencils from Hourglass. When you have very little brow hair drawing some on can get challenging. My arch is not well-defined and is actually a bit too low so trying to create natural looking definition is important. The triangle shape of the Hourglass Brow Sculpting Pencil allows me to draw in a shape without a harsh noticeable line. The formula of the pencil combines the benefits of a powder, a pencil and a wax in one for a very natural finish.
I have lightened my eyebrows just a bit to give them more of a deep brown tone over their natural off black hue. If you have very dark eyebrows and don’t want to actually lighten them you can always fill them in with a slightly lighter pencil. With my brows lighter at the moment I’m using the warm brunette pencil, when I don’t lighten I use the dark brunette pencil. The best part of the Hourglass Brow Sculpting Pencils for me is that they replace me needing to use multiple products.
By altering the angle at which I hold the pencil and adjusting the pressure I can brush, define, fill and set all with one pencil. Even the most brow challenged person..*cough me*.. can get a nice looking brown with little effort. Use a light hand and build in your desired level of fill and coverage. And don’t forget brows should be sisters not twins, so don’t fret if you can’t get them to look exactly the same.
The Arch Hourglass Brow Sculpting Pencils are available in 9 shades.
