Does anyone else have a plethora of eyebrow issues? I honestly think my eyebrows are the least fave part of my face and the most difficult to tame. My eyebrows are not twins, not really sisters and to be honest I’m not even sure if they’re friends!
I have funny eyebrows. The look I would like is the model worthy natural looking brows. So I continually try to grow them out. When they get longer however they are wiry and unruly and so I trim them and then they just look too ‘done’ when I put product on them.
I don’t have my eyebrows professionally done. I have done in the past and whilst there has been nothing at all wrong with them, they again, look very ‘done’ and I’d rather they just looked a bit more natural. HD is not for me.

I also dye my hair quite blonde but I am naturally very dark, so my eyebrows are pretty dark. I have started giving them a bit of a dye, not because they need to be any darker, but because I have a lot of very light hairs in there as well, by getting these lighter hairs darker I look like I have a much thicker brow.
The thought of dying my own eyebrows was initially terrifying but actually they turn out really well and I haven’t had a disaster (as yet…)! I use the Eylure Pro-Lash Dylash in Dark Brown* which is very inexpensive.
If like me you use the Benefit Precisely My Brows* in shade 3 then you will know it has been out of stock everywhere for weeks and weeks! Very annoying! So I have a package of other products that I like but pencil wise I am really struggling to find anything that I like that much…
I do like the Topshop brow pencil* but it isn’t a thin plastic coated tube with a thin sharp pencil in, it is an actual pencil. I have this product in blonde, they come out quite dark in my opinion. Anyway, the product itself is good, but you can end up with a generous thick brow…
My new fave whcih I think is a reasonable dupe is the Max Factor Brow Shaper in 20 Brown whcih I picked up in Boots a couple of weeks ago in desperate measures.
Other brow products that I like and use a lot are the Benefit ready, set, BROW! clear brow gel * which keeps them in place all day. The clear gel is really good as you can do it in a hurry and don’t end up with marks all over your face!
And I also like the Benefit Gimmie Brow* but I only use this for a full face of make up, it makes your brows look more done.
So for now, until my beloved Benefit Precisely My Brows* in shade 3 comes back in stock, I will be sticking to my everyday routine of filling in with the Max Factor Brow Shaper in 20 Brown with a slick of Benefit ready, set, BROW! clear brow gel * over the top.
