It’s time to talk eyebrows! I didn’t plan on doing this post until a bunch of you asked about my eyebrow routine. (I had shared an Instagram Story of me scaring Justin while wearing a face mask and dying my eyebrows. Needless to say, people had questions.) So here we are!
Eyebrows are really having a moment, and it’s easy to see why: A good eyebrow can really do wonders to make your face look finished and defined. My eyebrow routine is nothing revolutionary, but I do think it’s a very effective way to bring out my more sparse and light-colored eyebrows.
Without further ado, here are the four steps and products I use for my eyebrow routine:
If you’re not using Tinkle razors yet, you’re missing out. It’s a tiny razor that’s great for getting those tiny baby hairs off your face and exfoliating your skin. I use it to shape my brows and get rid of the little hairs around my natural brow. Honestly, I don’t really even pluck my eyebrows anymore! (Granted, I don’t have a lot of brow hair to work with in the first place.)
I’ve tried several types of brown tint in the past, and none of them compare to the ease and effectiveness of Just For Men Hair & Beard Dye! I first heard about this product from Mikelle Kennedy, who has stunning, bold eyebrows. When she said she uses Just For Men to tint her eyebrows, I knew I had to try it. Then my friend Lauren started using the product too, I decided to jump on board the trend.
Just For Men is only $7-8 and the tube lasts forever. There’s no mixing of dye—just squeeze a little bit out onto an angled makeup brush and apply it across your natural brow shape.
Then you’ll let the color sit for about 10 minutes and wipe clean with a makeup wipe. And there you go! Your eyebrows will be nicely tinted for about a week.
I use the Light Medium Brown color, which is universally flattering.
Glossier Boy Brow is truly the best brow pomade ever. I use the brown color to shape and fluff my brows in between my brow tinting sessions, and it does such a good job of creating the look of individual hairs—without having to use a tiny brow pencil to draw them on. It takes about 15 seconds, stays on all day, and shapes the brows while adding some color.
The brown color seems to pair well with most hair colors. (I recently bought the blonde color and think it’s too light.) This brow product really is my ride or die—you need it in your life!
My friend Katie of The Listening Ear Project turned me onto this hack for quickly and affordably shaping your brows: Instead of paying for brow lamination at a salon, you can get the same look with glycerin soap bar and makeup spoolie!
Just get the spoolie a little bit wet, scrub it on the bar of soap, and use that on your eyebrow to shape it. Then, once it dries it will look like your eyebrows have been laminated. Amazingly, they will stay like that all day long! And because the soap is clear, it looks totally natural.
If you’re looking for an easy way to define your face and look more pulled together, this eyebrow routine is a quick fix. Let me know if you try these four products for yourself!
