About my eyebrows…

Couple of my readers said how nice my eyebrows are and asked how I maintain them.

Thank you for your lovely comments :)

I don’t really do much to them but I will write about my few simple steps and maybe this will be helpful to someone.

There is just one thing I would like to address before I start and that is eyebrow shapes. Remember that the shape you were born with is the one that suits your face the most. Instead of trying very hard to make it look different, embrace what you’ve got and you’ll save yourself a lot of work.

Onto the routine:

I pluck my eyebrows with tweezers and do it myself at home. I have fast growing eyebrow hair and there is a lot of them too (talking about monobrow here). I would have to see a beautician every week or so to keep it nice. I don’t do waxing because I can’t stand that ‘waiting period’ between treatments. When I see a hair I need to get it out straight away.

Here's what I use:

1) Random tweezers from the drugstore. I don’t own Tweezerman tweezers but will invest in a pair one day. I have heard great things about that brand. Hope it’s not overrated.
2) Max factor eyebrow pencil. Well loved.
3) Elf Eyebrow Kit in Medium (this really is a lot darker than this picture) . This costs £3.50 and comparable to Benefit or Urban Decay kits (so I’ve heard)
4) Inglot 17TL angled eyebrow/eyeliner brush. Thin and soft - perfect for me.


Here's what I do:

This is how my eyebrows look ‘naked’. They were thicker in the past but I over plucked them few years ago when non-existent-super-thin eyebrows were in fashion ha ha


I use little brush that cames with Max Factor eyebrow pencil to brush the hairs down. Using light, small strokes I draw the top shape and fill in the main gaps.

Using angled, soft brush I mix both wax and powder from elf duo and fill in the whole eyebrow. I try to be very gentle with this because this duo is in shade medium which is a bit dark for me.
Ta da!

I never used to do anything to my eyebrows apart from tweezing them. I am really glad I have started to. I think it frames my face and makes me look little bit more grown up.


Hope these pictures weren't totally pointless.


Take care sweeties.

  1. Your eyebrows are lovely and really suit you!
    I never do mine because the powder I used to use is a bit too dark, never thought of getting a lighter one but I will now! :) xxx

  4. You do have lovely eyebrows and I completely agree you should stick to the shape that suits you. I was given a pair of Shavata tweezers as a Christmas present a few years ago and I absolutely love them, would recommend them to anyone wanting some decent tweezers.

    2. you're welcome! They're amazing, they pluck hairs out that you never knew you had :P got to be careful with them though as it's easy to get over excited and have no brows left!! x

  6. Both of your eyebrows were plucked perfectly. The angles are just right! Wonderful job, girl. Even your make up matches your skin tone.
