The Brow Down

Brow Down - Favorite Brow Products - TheSubtleStatement.com

If there’s one makeup item I would choose to have over any others before leaving the house, it’s a brow product. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good mascara, but I have pretty naturally long lashes on my own. If I don’t have my brows filled in (in the parts I am still trying to grow out) I feel naked.

Until a couple years ago, I never filled my brows in at all, and looking back pictures, it makes the biggest difference. I wish I would’ve started much sooner. After a good almost 12 years of growing my brows back in after a bad pencil thin waxing experience, I’m almost fully there. The brow tools aid in the extra help I need for any sparse spots, and keep them shaped and clean.

Benefit Brow Zings (in light) is my favorite brow product. Most days this is the only one I use. The hard angle brush and powder are the perfect tools to give your brows a polished shape. The wax and blending brush fill in any sparse spots, and blend the two products together well.

Benefit Gimme Brow (in light/medium) is a great product to subtly fill in your brows, and make them appear fuller, as well as work as a brow gel to keep them in tact.

Anastasia Brow Wiz (in taupe) is a great tool to quickly pencil in or shape your brows, or use along with Benefit Gimme Brow. The retractable ultra fine tip prevents looking too “pencilly” or thick.

Fall Staples

 Jacket: Gap (similar)  /  Sweater: Hive & Honey  /  Denim: J Brand /  Knit Socks: Forever 21  /  Boots:  DV Dolce Vita  /  Handbag: Louis Vuitton  /  Rings: David Yurman & Vintage  /  Watch: Michael Kors  /  Nails: Julep Alma (Trina Turk Fall 2012 Collection)

These boots were a TJ Maxx find. I’ve worn them all Summer, and they’ve been my go-to shoe this Fall. They’re a year-round staple in my closet. I’m such an ankle boots girl. I have so many similar pairs, but these are my favorite. I love the ankle length height.

This jacket was a steal on the clearance rack at Gap. I spotted the find this Spring, for $35 down from it’s $170 price tag. The removable faux fur lining & collar make this jacket so versatile.
