Merry Christmas to all who celebrate today! With the twist of fate this year I did beauty posts on both last day of 2017. and Christmas. Well, it was more with the twist of the calendar, I do beauty posts on Sundays. Anyways, let's talk about a subject dear to every makeup and beauty lover, brows. Eyebrows are to 2010s what blush was to 1980s and sparkly lip gloss to 2000s. I remember when the brow craze started and around 2011., 2012. everybody was walking with brows to strong for their facial features. I'm not the one to judge, I had my own brow experiments gone wrong (more about that later), but it is a fact that eyebrows can drastically effect the way your face looks. More than any other area of the face. Except maybe lips if they are too big. 

Now, first of all, I have to say my brows are completely natural. I never did any of brow tattooing, micro blading, threading, etc. I even never had my brows plucked by anyone else except myself. Since the age of 12 I've been tweezing my brows on my own and with the exception of over plucking them twice and leaving them too thick once it's been working well for me. Also, I sometimes colour them a bit with Titania Eyebrow & Eyelash Dye, if I feel they don't match my hair colour well. You are supposed to have brows two shades lighter than your hair if your hair is brown, and if it's blond two shades darker. I don't really follow this, I decide the colour of my brows by looking for a colour I like. This dye is not very permanent, it washes off after I while, but I still like it. Here I'll go through all the steps to get perfect brows if you are doing it all by yourself at home.


Even if you want your brows to look completely natural you'll have to pluck them at least a bit. Except if you like the shape of unplucked brows, which is totally fine, but I assume that people who do wouldn't even click on this post. I find that you can't really pluck your brows perfectly without good tweezers. Sharp ones that are not to hard but not to easy to squeeze work the best for me. I used to be afraid of sharp tweezers (mainly because my Mom taught me that all sharp beauty tools are bad) and I had two pairs of non sharp tweezers so I could pluck all the hair I wanted to be gone. Then I got a pair of Tweezerman tweezers and never looked back. They are truly the best tweezers you can get, in my opinion. You can (as every beauty book suggests) brush your brows before and during plucking, but I do it after the plucking and before filling them in. Any old brow brush will work, I had one from Sephora but it broke in my makeup bag so now I have this one from Oriflame and they are both pretty much the same.

Filling them in

I tried every single product for filling in the brows known to mankind. Shadows, waxes, mascaras, markers... Like a lot of people I found my favourite among Anastasia Beverly Hills products, their DIPBROW pomade. I've been using it for the past two years and I love it. Which brow product you'll use depends a lot on personal preferences so you have to test and try them until you find your favourite one. With my brow pomade I use Sigma Small angle E65 brush and that's pretty much the only brush I use for brow gels/pomades.


This is an additional step and you don't necessary need it and honestly I skip it for the most of the time. I used to fix my eyebrows with hairspray. Obviously, you don't spray it directly on your brows, that would make a huge mess and can potentially hurt you eyes. All you need to do is spray a little bit of hairspray on your finger and gently apply it on your brow. This is a great way to make sure your brows look amazing, still I find that it works the best when you are filling them in with eyeshadow. Recently I discovered a brow fixing product I like a lot, Sephora Universal Brow Freeze. It's basically a wax in a pencil and it complements my brow pomade perfectly.
