Current Brow Routine

I'm always fighting my brows into some sort of a shape it feels. They're naturally quite bushy and long which would be great right now while we're all trying to get our brows on fleek, but back when I discovered tweezers I didn't want lovely thick brows and as a result, butchered them into submission. Years later they won't grow back properly at the front, so I'm trying my best to except these little sisters for who they are now.

Once a week I give them a good tidy up and pamper. I tend to comb them into shape before tweezing away any stragglers and trimming the crazy sprouty hairs at the front. My left brow is slowly getting there and filling out a bit at the front, but the right is forever patchy and happy. Tis life I guess and I'm certainly not going to lose any sleep over it!

However, I do rely on a few little things to make them look a bit more unified and presentable on a day to day basis. Seeing as I change up my brow routine quite a bit I thought I'd share the current roster with you. I'm not that picky about what I use, as you know I love the Soap & Glory pencil, but I'm also quite partial to a cream or gel. Yep, I'm a brow floozy and I don't care.

At the moment its all about the Illamasqua Brow Cake in Thunder (£15.50). I've wanted this for ages but as I was quite happy with my other brow products I didn't feel the need to rush out and panic buy it. A few week's ago hubby and I went into London for the day and as we passed the Illamasqua counter in Selfridges I thought I'd treat myself to this and a few other goodies. Thunder is the perfect shade for me, neither too warm or ashy. It's also super easy to apply with a MAC 266 Small Angle Brush (£16.50) and I find that I don't need very much at all. It fills in my gaps but it still looks quite natural and not too dramatic, although you can go full on if you like (I won't judge you).

To finish off and set my eyebrow hairs in place (they wander - not a good look!), I've been using the L'Oreal Brown Artist Plumper (£5.99). I have the clear version of this and it's as good as Benefit's Gimme Brow and the MAC brow gel but much cheaper. The wand is smaller enough to pick every little hair up and it doesn't leave things crispy. I'll have to try out the brown version at some point to see how that measures up, but for now I'm pretty happy with my little routine.

I'd love to know what your brow routine is and whether you've used any of these products. Let me know in the comments!
