Taming the brows

I’ve never been a person whose been bothered about her eyebrows. I’ve always just thought ‘I wear glasses, you can barely see ‘em, waste of money, why bother!?’ That was until I made a little online make-up purchase and it came with a free gift. That free gift was a Smashbox Brow Tech to Go, travel friendly eyebrow pencil and gel. From that moment, my eyebrow game forever changed.

I started using this twist up pencil and fell in love – the colour was almost a perfect match (I use the shade Taupe), it applied like a dream, with very little pressure needed and the fact that it was free just clinched it for me! The pencil is waxy, waterproof and slightly angled which makes drawing on hair-like strokes super easy and natural – some people like the overdrawn, tadpole look, but it’s just not for me!

When I went to New York earlier in the year, I knew I’d have to go into Sephora (would be rude not to, right?) and repurchase this dream product. The only down side of it is that it comes in only 2 shades, Taupe (dark blonde/light brown in colour) and Brunette (dark brown) but luckily for me, one of those shades is spot on for me. The gel on the other end is great to, small brush and doesn’t give your brows that crispy, glued down feeling.

Boots are currently offered a free gift when you buy 2 or more products from them, so stock up! http://www.boots.com/en/Smashbox-Brow-Tech-To-Go_1272241/
