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…
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.
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
- 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.
- 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.
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.
Do you have a favorite vegan brow gel you like to use? What ways do achieve #browgoals?
