Eyebrows on Fleek
2014 was, without a doubt, the year of the brows! Strong brows have dominated the catwalks this season. Super model Cara Delevingne is often credited with starting the bold eyebrow tend, but Instagram definitely made sure the obsession carried on. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Zendaya and Rihanna (as well as IG celebrities like Heather Sanders) regularly show of their immaculately groomed arches and popularized the hashtag #BrowsOnFleek on the Gram. “On fleek” just means “on point” – Perfectly shaped and groomed brows.
I have pretty sparse eyebrows and I have always used a simple eye brow pencil to fill them in, as well as dying them darker since I am a natural blonde. This works fine for a really natural, effortless brow look, but if you want more bold and defined eyebrows, I have found the PERFECT product.
I have been following @anastasiabeverlyhills on IG for a while now and drooled over the flawless makeup, and especially eyebrow, looks. Anastasia Beverly Hills is the eyebrow guru of LA. She is every celebrity’s go to for brows. Even Oprah goes to her. And you know anything Oprah does is gold!
So I recently started using Anastasia’s Dip Brow Pomade (in Soft Brown) applied with the #12 dual sided brow brush. It takes a while to get the technique down, but it’s so worth it! This product is water and smudge proof, so it stays on alllll day. I absolutley love it!
Here are a couple of pictures to show you my before & after. (Excuse the messy bun lol!). Right brow is done and left brow is natural. I sometimes also use a really light concealer under the brow to accentuate it even more.
I think this shade is just right for the hair colour that I have right now. I would like to try a darker shade for more of a dramatic evening look though. Here are some pics of the finished look, both brows fleeked!
There are lots of video tutorials on how to use this product, I think most of them are not very good, the best one I could find was this one HERE.
Below are some of my favorite brow inspiration pictures! Check them out and let me know what you guys think in the comments. Have you used Anastasia’s products? Do you have another brow routine that you swear by? x
