I was a latecomer to the art of eyebrows, and I definitely wouldn't rate myself as having strong brow game, but I can't deny how much a little bit of filling n' shaping can change the shape of my face. But with eyebrows as fair as mine it has been quite a challenge finding the perfect balance between actually being able to see them vs committing the cardinal sin of blonde hair and black brows... I'm sharing four of the products that I have tried, and how suitable I find them for us blondes!
First up is the Sleek Make Up Eyebrow Stylist. I have to admit I was blindsided by the reasonable price - just £6.49 - and I have to say the quality does reflect this. The pencil has a very crayon-like consistency, the colour is also too dark for me despite being called 'light', and compared to the other two pencils I'm reviewing here it has a more reddish tone to it. Not the best but for a quick, cheap fix it does the job!
Next up is the Charlotte Tilbury Brow Life Eyebrow Pencil in Grace Kelly. I'm a sucker for the dark red and rose gold packaging, and it's a brand that definitely gives you value for money (even if that does mean spending a little more money...) This pencil was the perfect fair colour for me, a beautifully soft consistency that could easily be built up depending on how brave I was feeling, and it also comes with a highlighter - all in the one tool! The only downside is that it ran out after only a few weeks, so even though it was a dream to use it's not something I can afford to replace every month.
My most recent brow tool is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in taupe. I was irresponsible and bought this colour just because 'blonde' was out of stock, but the colour is actually quite a good match! The pencil is very narrow, which means it's great for shaping, and it's also a soft texture so it's pretty much impossible to over-apply it, which is a godsend for a novice like me. I've been desperate to try an Anastasia product, and so far it has lived up to expectations - a slightly cheaper alternative to Charlotte Tilbury as well!
As well as using a brow tool to fill and shape my brows, I tend to use the Benefit Brow Zings palette on top. This palette comes with both a gel and a powder, the first for shaping and second for filling. I personally found this quite a lengthy process, plus you don't have as much control with a brush as with a pencil, so now I just dab the powder on top on my pencilled brows as an extra filler, and to lock in the colour.
What eyebrow products do you use? Have you tried any of these products before?
