The first time I saw this ^ joke on Instagram, I fell out of my chair laughing.
I never used to fill in my eyebrows. 1: Because I would just get a little lazy and 2: It seemed unnecessary. I didn’t have any huge bald patches so I thought, “No Need!” …. And then a makeup artist filled in my eyebrows for me.
I was wrong.
It makes a difference. In pictures, it’s a huge, “Look, now you have eyebrows” difference. In real life, filling in your eyebrows helps define the shape of your face. I was actually surprised at how much of a difference it makes.
Also, once you get it down, it takes 30 to 60 seconds. For real. I spend 10 times that amount of time looking at cat/pet photos on the internet and that is not a joke.
I use one of the following four things depending on how much color and definition I want. From lightest to heaviest:
Quick (20 seconds for real-sies), with light and natural looking coverage. Perfection for everyday, doesn’t show up well in photos.
2 | Billion Dollar Brow Universal Brow Pencil.
Great, quick pencil that truly is universal. Taupe shading is what makes it universal. In photos the taupe can make your brows look like a totally different color than your hair. But does hold brows in place beautifully.
3 | Maybelline Expert Wear Twin Brow Pencils.
You’re Still The One, after all these years. The best $4 you will ever spend. Seriously. These pencils really do the trick. You can get a couple shades (I use Blonde and Auburn) mixed together to create a natural color for photos or videos. The first brow pencils I ever used on my own and after trying a ton of others, still a fav. My only complaint is that you have to sharpen them! I’m lazy!
