Sleek Oh So Special palette // MUA clear mascara // MAC eye brow pencil in Spiked // Sigma E65
I don't have the fullest brows in the world. Those empty areas on the top aren't the result of over plucking. They've been like that all my life, I just never had hair grow there! It always bothered me, until I found out about the wonders of eyebrow pencils.
My first venture into the eyebrow shaping world was with this MAC twist up eyebrow pencil, which I still love to this day. It doesn't match my natural hair colour perfectly, as it is a little bit lighter, but I don't think it's that noticeable. Even if you have black hair like mine, filling your eyebrows in with a totally black pencil can look very harsh. I tend to use the pencil on my lazy/time pressured days, as a quick swipe on the top and front of my brows tends to sort them out.
Recently, I've taken a crack at filling my brows in with eyeshadow. I'd always watched the Pixiwoos doing it in their tutorials and I could never understand why you would choose to faff around with powder eyeshadows when you can do it so quickly with a pencil! The fact is, it looks a lot softer than just the pencil, which gives you a nicer, more natural finish. I start by using the brown of this Sleek palette through the front of the brow and then mixing it with a smidgeon of the black on the back!
Lastly, just to make sure everything stays in place, I go over my brows with a bit of this MUA clear mascara. I've tried Benefit's offering of a clear brow gel, and although it does work better, you can't beat this and it's £1 price tag!
