Trends aside, good brows are always in fashion. If eyes are the window to your soul, then your brows are the frames to the window. And so, its important to at least act like you know what you're doing.
I'm probably going to upset a few people by saying, I strongly dislike (hate is so negative) Instabrows, fade brows, HD brows, ombre brows, and the list goes on..IMO and in the opinion of many other makeup artists, this trend needs to DIE. In fact, it should have already died a fiery death. The trend began its days at the makeup desks of drag queens, where it should have stayed. Brows should look like hair, not stencils, not perfectly formed doubles of each other...they are hairs, they should look like hairs, please.
There are plenty of brow products to try. Pencils, pomades, gels, pens, powders, all created by various companies, in various palettes and shades, all merchandised with the promise of ease of use and application, AH-mazing brows, all able to be created by you at home, correcting even the most severe plucking jobs. But, you and I both know, deep in our hearts, that isn't always so.
Enter, Whipped Paint by Smitten Cosmetics. Available in Light, Medium and Dark, with a soft, mousse-like consistency it easily transforms your brows without being gluggy or overpowering. It can double as an eyeliner or paint it over the eye lid as an eyeshadow too! I love a product that has multiple uses, anything to lighten my kit!
Everything you need for a great night out....a great pair of earrings, a clutch just big enough to hold the essentials, your Modelrock KitReady Lashes in #236, Smitten Whipped paint and your Makeup Weapons 1.10 Eyebrow brush and spoolie combo.
But, I here you say, howwwwww do it do eiiit!??! I have a quick trick for when I'm racing out the door and maybe I've put my CC cream on and my brows need a little something. I promise you can do it in just a few strokes.
The image below will help. And for the record, I have nothing on my face here...its just me.
And there you have it! It takes a light hand so don't go in with loads of product on your brush, or heavy strokes if you go for a pencil. And remember to brush the product through the brows.
I welcome your comments and questions.
