What do you use to fill in your eyebrows?
I had been using the Anastasia Dip Brow forever, but I recently began to search for something that had a little more of a natural look to it. I still love the stuff, but I had been searching my stash for something different. A few neglected but well loved makeups found their way into my daily rotation. Benefit Brow Wiz and It Cosmetics Universal Brow Pencil are two brow products I remember loving and I was enjoying changing it up with those, until I got my hands on the Jane Iredale GreatShape Eyebrow Kit*.
When this first arrived to me in the mail, it seemed a little underwhelming and I didn’t have great expectations for it. I had never tried the Jane Iredale brand before, so I never knew what I was missing out on! This kit is new to their product line. It comes in a travel-sized compact and houses two small pans- one is a pigmented brow powder and the other is a botanical brow wax. It also comes with a tiny double ended tool with one side being an angled brush and the other side being a small spoolie. I typically don’t use the brushes that come with sets like this and opt for a full size but I actually don’t mind the quality of this one.
The brow powder is a soft and natural color that won’t look harsh, which is exactly what I love so much about it. The shade I wear is Brunette which isn’t too cool or too warm and is kind of a dark taupe neutral brown. This product is only offered in Brunette and Blonde and although the shade range is minimal I think the neutrality of the shades will mean a lot of different hair colors and skin tones will find a fit in one of the shades.
The way I like to use this is by dipping my brush back and forth between the wax and the powder and applying it to my eyebrow to create more of a shape. I’m not an angular eyebrow person like so many people are these days. I just kind of go with the shape of what my eyebrow is already doing and try to fill in the bare spots. I like that the wax offers a little bit of hold but my eyebrows don’t look stiff and harsh and tattooed on like they occasionally did with the Dip Brow. I am really liking more of a natural look with my eyebrows right now. Perhaps it’s because summer is on its way and I just can’t be bothered by anything that’s too high maintenance!
What are you using on your eyebrows these days? Do you like natural or sculpted eyebrows? Do you go back and forth between your preferences like I do?
