Speed Brow - Let's talk eyebrows!
My eyebrow style is natural, I don't like very arched or structured brows that look harsh, very thin or very thick brows. It's best to have them quite full with a slight arch to lift your face. There's no right or wrong brow shape but the way God created them is obviously what's best. Do not shave them off and draw them on higher!
If you need to fill in your eyebrows with powder or pencil, make sure it looks soft and natural - I would recommend a powder e/s like 'Brun' or 'Cork' from Mac to fill them in and maybe a wax or gel to keep them in place.
I first used Benefit's clear eyebrow gel years ago just to tame my eyebrows which has been discontinued, I then tried Elf's clear eyebrow gel which was a complete waste of money as it did not hold. I have also tried Mac's clear eyebrow gel which was nice but didn't hold very well. I have also tried Vaseline or hairspray applied onto a mascara wand which did help but nothing to write home about. I went into Benefit a couple of days ago and saw that they still do an eyebrow gel with the same formula but a tinted version.
Meet Benefit's 'Speed Brow' eyebrow gel which claims to tint, tame and set eyebrows in record time... I have been wanting it for AGES!
The colour is "neutral" which is basically clear with a tiny brown tint which would suit almost everybody. FYI: My mum is blonde and this also works for her.
BEFORE: Here are my eyebrows naturally with some foundation I manage to apply onto them accidentally whilst rubbing it in. The hairs are quite long and manage to look down which is tres annoying.
AFTER: Here they are with the speed brow applied, the slight tint helps to get rid of the foundation residue and make them look sharper and obviously tamed, I have worn this everyday for the past 3 days and omg do they hold? my eyebrows stay in shape the whole day and they don't feel crispy when I touch them!
I recommend this if you like eyebrow gels and want one that holds! The only bad thing is the tube is quite small so I'm not sure how long this will last me as I use it everyday.
What do you use for your eyebrows?
