Turn Your #BrowGoals Into Reality With This Genius 30 Second Trick

March 12, 2018

Mother knows best. 

Recently, I was chatting with my Mother and somehow the topic of eyebrows presented itself.

“Apparently,” my Mother starts, “you’re now supposed to add face powder to your eyebrows.”

“Oh yeah?” I reply.  Suspicious as I’d never heard this beauty tip before.

“Yep,” she says. “Can’t remember where I saw it but I guess it makes them look thicker.”

Ah. Thicker, you say? Combine thicker and eyebrows in a sentence and I’m all ears. While I have serviceable eyebrows I don’t have great, envy-worthy eyebrows. I was intrigued…

Vegan Eyebrow Tips

Putting it to the Test

The next morning, after washing my face and applying cream I decided to give it a go. I’m not a “makeup person” and thus don’t have fancy tools or many products. But that’s okay–this trick is perfect for those with a fuss-free beauty routine.

I simply took a face powder, I use bareMinerals original loose powder foundation, dipped my face brush into the powder and powdered my brows. I then used a colored eyebrow gel like I normally would.


It works!

The face powder covers all the eyebrow hairs nicely. Therefore, when you use the colored gel, it really gets in there and coats everything nicely.

I also tried using this incredible pearl face powder before applying brow gel and it too worked wonderfully.

How to do it

  1. Apply a skin-colored or translucent powder to eyebrows with an eyebrow brush. Really get in there with the brush to make sure all the hairs are covered.
  2. Brush eyebrows upwards with a colored eyebrow gel.

That’s it! Super easy, fast, and simple brow routine that gives you lush brows without all the fuss.

Eyebrow Gels 

The eyebrow gel I currently use I don’t really like very much. I’ve used Boy Brow from Glossier and Gimme Brow from Benefit in the past. Although I liked these products, they aren’t vegan and so I will not buy them again.

After some searching online I found a few products that I like the look of and will try when I run out of my current brow gel. These products are vegan and have loads of really great reviews.
