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.
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.
