A great brow product is worth its weight in gold. From Audrey’s squared edges to Brooke’s brushed-out beauties and Kim’s perfectly polished pair, eyebrow trends may waver, but a product that can do it all is a beauty bag staple. Having your eyebrows shaped professionally to suit your features is essential, but once you’ve left the salon, the pencil (or gel, or palette) is in your hands.
If you’ve been naturally blessed with full brows, then a brow gel is a must. jane iredale PureBrow® Brow Gel can be combed through the brows to set unruly hairs in place, and the tinted formulas (blonde, brunette & auburn) can be used to match your hair colour between tints or simply to give the illusion of thicker, fuller brows. Brow gels have been known to set quickly and give the hair an almost “crunchy” texture, but our mineral formulas have a conditioning effect on the hair, moving with your brow hair for a truly natural look. PureBrow® Brow Gel also comes in a clear formula, perfect for “no makeup” days or for setting your look after using a pencil. Our tip? Brush up the hairs at the inner edges of your eyebrows for a fresh, youthful look.
If your brows are sparse or simply need a bit of filling in, then a pencil is your ideal brow tool. A fine pencil will allow you to physically draw on hairs where you feel you may need them, allowing you to be as precise as you need. The jane iredale PureBrow® Precision Pencil has a very fine tip, so you can really create thin, hair-like strokes. The pencil also has a spoolie on one end, meaning you can use it to groom your brows prior to using the pencil and brush the colour through the brows for a blended, feathered finish. This waterproof brow pencil comes in six diverse natural shades to cater for all brow hair colours.
If versatility is important to you, be it for the hip pocket or for a lack of beauty bag space, then a regular eye pencil can double up as a great brow tool. jane iredale’s Eye Pencil in Taupe is perfect for filling in the brows on the go and also doubles as an eyeliner to add subtle, natural-looking definition to the lash line.Brows can do wonders for your overall look, and we can’t stress enough how critical brow maintenance is for preserving your natural brow shape. Our tip put the tweezers down, book an appointment with a brow specialist and embrace your perfect brow shape that suits your face, your eyes and your hair colour.
