My brows are very sparse at the inner corners and I like a fairly natural look (not his natural though!). Any product recommendations please? Have just come to the end of an Anastasia BrowWhizz which I quite like but I'm pretty hopeless at gettng a good shape! Also have Benefit Gimme Brow which is okay but also just about finished. What else can I try?

Bumping! Am looking at the Anastasia prodicts and womdering whether to try something else.

Does anyone have any Anastasia favourites?

I've just bought the Anastasia Beauty express kit, which has the stencils, eyebrow brush, brow wax, brow powder and highlighter: I've found the stencils really useful: you get a variety of shapes to choose from - I use the medium arch and it helps to get a really decent shape. I sometimes use the soap and glory brow archery pencil (which is exactly the same as the brow wiz imo, just a lot cheaper) at the very end to finish off and tidy them up.

Never used Anastasia brow pomade as that looks a bit scary!

I've got a couple of favourites I use - MAC's eyebrow pencil (it's more a waxy type stick) in Spiked and the Benefit Browzings kit. I'd like to try Anastasia but I like to try it first for a colour match and I don't know anywhere in the UK that has that available.

Always made sure to brush the product through with a spoolie, so I basically bulk bought a load of plain disposable mascara wands from Ellisons to do the trick. Also useful for brushing through brows to trim them if you do them yourself and to rub away smudged mascara (when you've let it dry first so that you don't have to wipe away and redo eye makeup).

Gimme Brow by Benefit is amazing! Buy another one! I also like their brow pencils and use in combo with the Gimme Brow. I haven't historically been a fan of Benefit but the brow stuff is great I'm sure the lady at the benefit counter is worth a visit.

I really like Make Up Revolution's kit. It has 3 powders which you mix to get the right shade, wax, mini tweezers and mini angled brush.
The powders go very dark when mixed with the wax, be careful! I have dark brown eyebrows and hair and use the Light/Medium kit.
I brush my eyebrows, then mix two powders to get the colour right onan angled brush, then mix the powder with the wax and draw a line. If there are a few stray hairs (my hair is very curly), I dip a clean old mascara wand in the wax and comb through. Don't go near the beginning of your eyebrows (= near your nose) with the colour, as theymay end up looking too fake.
You get it from Superdrug and it costs £2.50 (!).

I have the Elizabeth Arden brow powdery thing m.feelunique.com/p/Elizabeth-Arden-Color-Intrigue-Dual-Perfection-Browshaper-and-Eyeliner-27g?url=Elizabeth-Arden-Color-Intrigue-Dual-Perfection-Browshaper-and-Eyeliner-27g&slang=EN

I'm a brunette but bought the blonde colour and it looks totally natural and a breeze to apply. I am using a proper brow brush from Mac. This is my desert island product, it's very subtle but makes a huge difference to my look.

As a pp mentioned, brow pomade!
I use MAC's version, but it is very easy to build up a light colour with it. I like to think my brown look immaculate - I use an Anastasia BH brush as well.

Thanks all. I typed a post lasr night but lost it. Maraki, your recommendation sounded perfect until you said not to go near the inner (nose) corners - that's just where I need to build some brow.

The Elizabeth Arden product looks worth a look. Such a pity the Anastasia products are mail order .... I'd love to try them at a beauty counter. I took a guess with the shade for Brow Whizz and it's a great match for my natural colour. If I can keep scrapping out the bottom of Gimme Brow for another week or so, I think I'll get myself to Benefit and Eliz Arden for a look, otherwise back to Anastasia.

Thanks!

I use wunderbrow. Took a few tries to get it just right but absolutely love it now!

JournosAreLazy Fri 03-Feb-17 22:49:51

I hate wunderbrow. Only used twice and I find it really fake looking. Now sitting in drawer gathering dust. How do you use yours knackered to get it looking right?

Product called 'beautiful brows' is a nice light build-able powder with stencils for different looks from natural to glam.

Mrsknackered Fri 03-Feb-17 23:01:21

I have fairly thick brows but they are fair so maybe that is why I like it, but I always scrape off the excess so it looks like there is barely any on there and start from the middle to the ends as that's pretty much a sweeping motion, and then with the little bit that's left, shape the front? If any of that makes any sense!
The first few times I used it were bloody dreadful but I knew it could look nice as my younger sister uses it and hers are gorgeous - so I persevered!

They sell 'angling' brushes which you are supposed to use first under the brow then use the brush that comes in it, but I don't bother with all of that!
