The one major mistake I see more often than a Kim Kardashian selfie is OTT brow product. Thankfully, you don’t necessarily need a professional to correct your hyperactive application. You’ll know you’ve gone overboard with product if your brows are A. a block colour, B. you can no longer see your hairs, or C. you’ve extended the product beyond the bulk of the eyebrow.
If you fall into any of these categories, pay attention to these steps to create natural-looking definition.

If you do your eyebrows before the rest of your makeup, foundation can build up in the bulk of your eyebrows creating a dirty look on top of your eyebrow products. To avoid this, do your eyebrows last and run a tissue over your eyebrows to remove excess foundation (just avoid the skin so you don’t have bare patches). Now you have a clean slate to fill in.
Brush your eyebrows with your spool brush in the direction they naturally grow. Upwards towards the arch and outwards, is usually the most flattering technique as it will open up the eye area.
Next, apply brow wax with an angle brush to create guidelines so your powder sticks. Start at the front of your brow and follow the underneath line towards your arch and along your tail. Do the same along your top line. Feather some wax throughout the middle of your eyebrows to mimic your hairs.
Then, using the same angle brush, apply the powder on top of the wax, following the top and bottom lines, and use light strokes to mimic your hairs throughout the middle. TIP: If you don’t have an already-defined top or bottom eyebrow line, focus on creating hair-like strokes throughout the bulk of your brow.
Use the spool brush to blend the powder through your brows in the direction of your growth, making sure you’re spreading the powder through your entire eyebrow – this will create a soft, natural shadow which gives the illusion of hairs.
Finish with brow gel to keep them in place.

I love chatting to anyone who will listen about my new favourite products, skincare dos and don'ts and practically any other beauty-related topic under the sun. That doesn't mean I'm frivolous with my recommendations, though--you can count on me to give you the nitty gritty on all your wishlist products. In my spare time, you'll find me binge-watching old episodes of Gilmore Girls or at brunch with a large iced coffee in my hand.
