The Internet has proclaimed that in 2016, the "Instagram Brow" trend will be a thing of the past. Though I could appreciate the artistry of the brow 'on fleek' (I am a long-time fan of RuPaul's Drag Race, after all..) it was never a trend I picked up. It did, however, clue me in to the importance of the eyebrow - something I pretty much ignored up until that point. Sure, I tweezed my husband's unibrow from time to time, but I pretty much left mine alone.
Seeing all the different styles and shapes of brows has given me an appreciation for the way they can frame the face, and even how they work with my eyeglasses. I have two kits to show you today from Billion Dollar Brows - and I think that with these, you can create any kind of brow you want.
The Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit has four tools to help you beat your brows.
The Brow Duo pencil is very soft and creamy. The highlight worked for me both above and below the the arch of the brow, depending on what kind of look I was going for. I also used the concealer along the brow bone to help even out my skin tone. It would be good for those with discoloration or veins on their lids. The smudge brush is designed to work with the pencil - it has a thin, flat head with a defined edge to help you get right next to the brow and give that tail a defined look.
My favorite part of this kit, though, is the Universal Brow Pencil. It's my go-to pencil now! The color isn't as red as some I've used previously, and the texture is creamy, creamy, creamy. It's like a gel eyeliner to me. Very nice for filling in, though I'm not sure how precise it would be for those who like to draw in little hairs. I need a spoolie on the end of my brow pencils, so I'm really glad this comes with one. I watched a demo the other day on getting a higher arch that recommended using a spoolie to brush the front part of the brow up and the arch and tail hairs down, toward the eye. Then, fill in the brow, and use the spoolie to brush everything into place. Have you tried this?
Swatches from this kit: The Duo Pencil highlighter and concealer, and the Universal Brow Pencil. There really is a swatch of the gel there next to that.. but it's kinda like asking you to look at Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet, isn't it. Trust me, it's there.
