I have very sad eyebrows. Fair, sparse, and thin. They require a lot of help. That said, I still like them to look natural. Not too perfect, fuller but still a little messy. I love layering brow products to give my brows more dimension and make their filling in a little less obvious. My new go to brow routine consists of two new brow products from Urban Decay. The Urban Decay Brow Beater Microfine Brow Pencil and Brush ($24 CAD) is fabulous. Teeny twist up brow pencils like these are always my favourites. The tiny point makes drawing in hairs possible and the lightweight gel formula applies with ease, unlike some dryer, waxier formulas. The Brow Beater formula actually contains moisturizing ingredients like vitamin E, organ oil, and coconut oil to give your brow area some love. It is waterproof and lasts all day for me without fading and disappearing. I love that there is a spoolie on the end of the pencil because it saves a step reaching for a brow brush or separate spoolie.
There are four shades available. Taupe (shown), Neutral Brown, Warm Brown, and Dark. Taupe is a great option for me. In a perfect world it would be a little lighter and a little cooler but overall it works.
I always follow the Brow Beater pencil application with the new Urban Decay Brow Tamer Flexible Hold Brow Gel ($24 CAD) in Taupe. I don’t necessarily need the hold, since I don’t have much brows to speak of, but I love it to add more dimension to my brows. The brush for the brow tamer is a nice size. Small, but not too small, and it picks up the right amount of product so you don’t have to worry about wiping off any excess. I have been using this for weeks now and it hasn’t gone thick or gloopey on me at all, and still continues to pick up the right amount of brow gel. The formula is very lightweight and leaves brows soft, yet in control, with no crunchy feel. The Taupe shade is quite a bit cooler and lighter than the Taupe shade in the Brow Beater so I love the extra dimension that creates.
It is also available in Neutral Brown, Warm Brown, and Dark, to match the Brow Beater shades, as well as in Clear.
Here is how I usually wear the products. This is a very quick application that only takes me a couple minutes, if that. I’m sure if I felt like dedicating 10-15 minutes to my brow routine I could have some killer Instagram worthy brows but that’s just not practical for me. I like it more imperfect and natural. And no, my brows don’t actually slope down like that. It’s some weird camera angle thing I’ve managed that makes my head look super narrow. So not flattering!
