Brows 101

  

Brows are the only feature on your face you really shouldn't mess up. As most makeup artists and beauticians say, brows frame the face and can drastically effect your look. Tricky thing is that brow trends are always changing. We've all been there, wearing brows plucked into a thin line or, worse (well, you can't exactly say what's worse), those that are too thick they look ridiculous. Right now we are living in the era, of thick, bushy brows and some people are taking it to the extreme and won't leave the house if their brows are not ''on point''. If there's something I've learned in the past decade (since I've started plucking my eyebrows), less is definitely more in brows department. That means: as little plucking as necessary and in the same time as little filling in or overdrawing. If you want to keep it simple you can pluck them, fill them in with an eyeshadow in the colour of your brows and call it a day (which I do sometimes). When I want to step it up a bit, I use a brow mascara or wax with shadow on top. 
Here are some of my favourite brows tools and products.

Twewzerman tweezers Only after I got a pair of Tweezerman tweezers I've realized it does pay off to buy good quality tweezers. I've haven't used any other tweezers since and couldn't be happier with them.

Benefit Browzings This little palette contains a wax, a shadow, pair of mini tweezers and two brushes, one for the wax and one for shadow. There are three colour choices: light, medium and dark. I opted for light and it fits my brows perfectly, mainly because wax is actually pretty dark. Little tweezers are unnecessary most of the time, I  maybe used them once when I was running late. Mini brushes are, surprisingly, very good, you can fill in your brows nicely using them. Oriflame also has a similar product called Eyebrow kit, I've used it in the past and it's also great and inexpensive.

NYX brow mascara My newest brow discovery, lately I've been wearing only this on my brows. Shade I got is Black and one layer is quite enough to get the brows I want.

Sephora Brow brush (number 10) and brow comb (number 11) My favourite brow brush and the only brow comb that I use. If you are looking for good brow tools I would recommend these two.




Obrve su jedini deo lica koji stvarno ne bi trebalo da ''upropastite''. Kao što većina šminkera i kožmetičara kaže, obrve su ram za lice i dramatično mogu da vam promene izgled. Nezgodna stvar je to što se trendovi u oblikovanju obrva stalno menjaju. Svi smo bar jednom nosili obrve tanke kao linija ili još gore (u stvari ne zna se šta je gore) one koje su toliko debele da izgledaju smešno. Trenutno smo u eri debelih, bujnih obrva i mnogi su to doveli do ekstrema pa ne izlaze iz kuće ako im obrve nisu ''pod konac''. Ako postoji jedna stvar koju sam naučila tokom prošle decenije (od kad sam počela da čupam obrve) to je da je manje uvek više što se obrva tiče. To znači: što manje čupanja je moguće i u isto vreme što manje popunjavanja i docrtavanja. Ako želite da sve pojednostavite možete samo da ih počupate i popunite senkom i tu završite sređivanje obrva (što ja ponekad radim). Kada želim malo više da se potrudim, koristim maskaru za obrve i vosak sa senkom preko.
Ovo su neki od mojih omiljenih proizvoda i alata za negu obrva.

Twewzerman pinceta Tek kada sam počela da koristim Twewzerman pincetu shvatila sam da se stvarno isplati imati kvalitetnu pincetu. Nisam koristila nijednu drugu pincetu od tada i prezadovoljna sam.

Benefit Browzings Ova paletica sadrži vosak, senku, mini pincetu i dve četkice, jednu za vosak i drugu za senku. Postoje tri nijanse: light, medium and dark. Ja sam izabrala light i savršeno mi odgovara, verovatno jer je vosak prilično taman. Mini pinceta je uglavnom nepotrebna, možda sam je koristila samo jednom kad sam žurila. Male četkice su, iznenađujuće, jako dobre, možete lepo da popunite obrve sa njima. Oriflame takođe ima sličan proizvod, zove se Eyebrow kit, koristila sam ga ranije i takođe je sjajan, a nije skup.

NYX maskara za obrve Moje najnovije otkriće za obrve, u poslednje vreme nosim samo nju na obrvama. Boja koju sam ja izabrala je Black i jedan sloj je dovoljan da bih dobila obrve kakve želim.

Sephora četkica za obrve (broj 10) i češljić za obrve (broj 11) Moja omiljena četkica za obrve i jedini češljić koji koristim. Ako tražite dobre četkice za obrve ove toplo preporučujem.
