My Current Favorite Brow Product

My makeup changes on a day to day basis depending if I’m going to work or going out. I don’t have a set routine, but one product I never leave the house without applying, is a brow product. I have always been a pomade kind of gal because I have naturally full brows that don’t need much shaping or defining. I always thought that a pencil product was better for people with thinner, unshapely brows who need a little extra help creating brows.

One morning before work, instead of reaching for my usual ABH dip brow pomade, I decided to try my Winky Lux Uni-Brow Universal pencil I had gotten in a Boxycharm a while back. This product has a similar tip to the ABH Brow Definer. It has a thicker, angular tip instead of a tiny pencil tip. This style works much better for me because I can quickly cover more space. The smaller tip pencils are better for people who need to create brows and draw lines.

I have been using the Winky Lux pencil regularly for two weeks and I love it. I don’t know if I will ever go back to a pomade. One thing I noticed is that my brows seem thicker than ever! It seems like the product promoted hair growth which seems impossible but just something I noticed.

I have the limited edition packaging version but I will link the product in it’s normal packaging that is available for purchase.

Why I Stopped Waxing My Eyebrows

I used to go to the nail salon regularly to get my eyebrows waxed. My mom would get her’s done and I thought it was just something I should do. I always had pretty thick eyebrows. I don’t have to fill them in too much because I have a good amount of hair. My day to day routine is just brushing a light amount of pomade through them and that’s it.

I had a few incidences where the ladies had waxed them a bit too thin, even though I would always tell them to keep them thick and just clean them up. I started getting afraid to get them done.

About a year ago, I started going to an esthetician and she asked me what I do to my eyebrows. I told her I get them waxed at a nail salon. She proceeded to tell me that that was the worst thing I could do. She explained how they use low-grade wax that is too hot. I told her that I go to a nice nail salon and she said, “believe me, they all use the same thing.”

After that, I started to rethink my brows. I decided to go a few months without getting them waxed. I was amazed how thick my brows got. I looked in the mirror and realized they were thicker than ever. “This is probably because I stopped getting them waxed,” I thought to myself. I took out a pair of tweezers and just did a quick clean up myself. Done! They were perfect. Why would I ever go back to waxing? All I needed was to every once in a while tweeze a few hairs and I’d be good to go. My brow hair grows slow, so it’s not like they are high maintenance.

Stopping wax has been the best thing. I love my brows more than ever.

Do you get your brows waxed, threaded??

Icy Vibes

I have been going blonde since the fall. It has been a process because I had medium/dark brown hair. It takes time because you don’t want to fry your hair. My hair is currently a golden blonde with some cool blonde pieces throughout, but I think I want to go platinum! I absolutely love how Victoria from IntheFrow rocks her icy, blonde hair with darker brows.
