My Brow Routine Using Benefit Cosmetics!







Hi everyone, today I wanted to share with you my brow routine. When it comes to my brows I am not too fussy with them as I prefer them to look very natural. I like the natural shape they are, so when it comes to maintaining them I only tweezer them. When I fill in my brows I like to keep the shape but darken them and fill in more sparse areas. Two products I like to use are from Benefit Cosmetics. Please bare with my on my pictures I had to take my before and after ones with my iPhone as my lighting in my makeup room isn't set up yet.

These are the Benefit Brow Zings which comes with a wax and powder and the brushes you will need and the Benefit Gimme Brow which will not only set your brows but contains fibres which cling on to the hairs giving them colour and thickness. I find these two together create lovely brows and they are so easy and quick to use.

Before.
As you can see in the before picture the hairs are quite fair and don't really help to emphasise the eyes. They look a little lost within the makeup. First I use the Benefit Brow Zings Powder (you can use the wax first if you like) with the angled brush. I start from the middle outwards following the underneath and the over the arch out to the tip then fill this area in. I keep adding little at a time to get the darkness I want and keeping a neat shape. I then with a very light hand move onto the inner section, stroking up with the hairs applying a small amount of product giving this part a more squared shape. I then go over the whole brow making sure it is all blended. You always was the lightest part of the brow to be the inner section going to the darkest at the tip.

Once we have defined the shape and darkened them I go over with the Benefit Gimme Brow, this is such an easy tool to use! I start again stroking through the outer section making sure the arch and tip are defined then use the excess through the inner part stroking the hairs upwards. This will not only keep the hairs facing the way you want then but also add thickness and more depth of colour to the brows. You can increase the thickness by stroking the hairs back and fourth.





After.








After
You can see from the after pictures what a massive difference it makes to the face. The whole face looks more defined, and it adds structure to the makeup. They still look very natural, however they really lift the face and open the eyes. They are really easy products to use and I love using them. I hope you liked this post.
