Okay so I overplucked the brows a little in high school & they never grew back. After high school I put my trust in various people who have all butchered my poor brows. So, I do them myself now. And you can too! It takes practice and it can get messy but practice makes perfect 😉
Items needed to do your own at home waxing:
Pre-wax cleanser ( I use witchhazel)
The color closest to my wrist is Anastasia Beverly Hills. Benefit is in the middle & NYX is at the bottom. It’s no surprise to anyone anymore EYEBROWS are everything in today’s world. We all want brows that are neat, symmetrical and defined right?!
Below are three products that will have your eyebrows looking flawless.
BENEFIT HIGH BROW COSMETICS
Worth picking up if you are looking to highlight the arch area to make your eyebrows look that much cleaner. Makes a big difference! Brings a subtle definition to my brow & helps them look fully groomed.
NYX WONDER PEN
Now this formula is great. I can dot an acne scar or a sun spot with this little guy & it disappears. I love the coverage it’s super natural & blendable. I use this to BRIGHTEN my eyes along the water line, works wonders & looks so natural.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
This is great for a more natural highlight under the brows. It also covers brow hairs as they grow back in, but that doesn’t look cute sometimes.
I recently purchased the Pro Performance sponge at MAC & what a huge disappointment. It’s so stiff (nothing like the beauty blender) nothing flexible about this sponge. I can’t use it for foundation but I can use the pointy side for blending my concealer so it’s not a total loss.
The eyebrow set is great for setting eyebrows, & lasts all day.
I highly recommend this to groom brows.
The BB cream is not that great, I wish I would have bought the CC cream instead. Prep & Prime BB cream gives a matte, dull, non-glowy look. I tried returning it but because I didn’t save my receipt they couldn’t exchange it. If you have dry skin this isn’t for you.
Here’s how I created the look. Hope you enjoy!

Sup guys & gals. So I got a couple things from Sephora & I wanted to tell you about them. Let’s start off with the holy grail of primers. All I can say is “wow” this stuff is aaaahhhh mazing, I love it. My foundation goes on flawlessly & my skin feels extremely hydrated. Do you know how hard it is to find a good makeup primer?
On to the next, I got my favorite eyebrow pencil ( need I say more ) I mean Anastasia is literally the queen of eyebrows, seriously. http://anastasiabeverlyhills.com/brows/brow-wiz.html (chocolate) Super-blendable & very natural.
It’s pricey, dramatic, and pretty. It’s one of my favorite high end mascara’s that I get to buy once in a while 😉
