Menat El Abd, Regional Brow Artist at Benefit Cosmetics, is back with some fool proof tips to get your brows looking flawless for the fashion season.
How to Get Flawless Eyebroaws Every Day
Prep Prep Prep
First step to prepping the brows is waxing them at Benefit Brow Bars, located at Sephora. Let the experts use their brow waxing, mapping and tinting skills to give you polished brows that you can upkeep at home. Tip: during those 3-5 weeks for them to grow, avoid over-plucking too often or too hard.
Treat your eyebrow hair like the hair on your head by adding BROWVO! Conditioning Primer Nutrient Rich Eyebrow Primer into your daily routine. The formula contains keratin and soy proteins to help brows look fuller, thicker and healthier in just 21 days.
Mind The Gap
You can go ahead and fill in the brows using your favourite brow product – Menat loves using Goof Proof Brow Pencil, to shape the brows nicely. The technique is so simple, you draw in soft hair strokes to create an illusion of fuller brows. Don’t forget to take the spoolie brush and blend any harsh lines for a softer look. If you want to transform the brows later on the day, add a little bit of volume using Gimme Brow+.
Aftercare is just as important and Menat adds:
“My final and most important tip for maintain your brows’ shape is to be extra gentle and soft while taking off the brow make up with the cotton pad. Grab a cotton pad, soak it in make-up remover then slowly swipe off the product softly. Always make sure you swipe off in the same direction and avoid any friction so you don’t lose any brow hairs.”
Now that your eyebrows are in tip top shape, it’s time to figure out what to wear to the shows.
