Take a page from LeToya Luckett’s book. Givin’ good eyebrow should be the norm and all it takes is the right product(s) to get that defined, but not overdone look.
Allow me to introduce Tarte Cosmetics to your makeup bags. I’ve been a fan of anything MAC Cosmetics for years, but I knew it was time for a change. I learned about the waterproof emphasEYES Brow High-Definition Brow Pencil ($19.50, tartecosmetics.com) after being invited backstage to see the makeup looks before a fashion show during New York Fashion Week last season. Some brow products wipe off at the first sign of sweat, but this one stays put. But I do have one bone to pick: only medium and taupe are offered so Tarte should think about introducing an in between shade since the medium brown is a too dark. But with that said, I threw caution to the wind and am currently wearing the medium brown. New Year, New Attitude I say.
Another item from Tarte’s real estate of “natural” products is the ToolBox Brow Know-How Eyebrow Kit ($18, tartecosmetics.com). This kit is perfect because it contains all the right stuff – brow gel, brow pencil, tweezer, brow brush, brow powder, brow wax, and 3 brow stencils, and a mini mirror.
Here are my 3 quick tips for getting the perfect eyebrow shape:
Tip 1: Tweeze your eyebrows after taking a shower or by applying a warm compress to them beforehand.
Tip 2: Don’t press too hard when you use an eyebrow pencil because the finished result will look unnatural.
Tip 3: Control your unruly eyebrows with brow gel. Hairspray is also a great substitute. Just spray onto your brow brush before you groom them.
