Beautiful Brow Techniques

Hello! How are you today? Ready to get those brows going on?

I know I am! Learning to do my eyebrows has been a very fun journey for me. I’ve enjoyed learning about different brow products and brow techniques.

I’ve always had very prominent brows and never really had to use anything other than something to hold them into place, but you know how it is as we mature and things begin to change…

Upside is, we can always learn new things, and learn how to keep our beauty as brilliant as ever!

To begin this journey, I first went to my Avon website and learned about the different types of eyebrow products available and ordered several that appealed to me. The good thing about eyebrow products (at least Avon’s), is that they’re not really expensive, so it is great to get several products to try out.

I’ll go over the different products that I tried for my new look and tell you their price points as well. But first, I’ll share with you the techniques I’ve been learning along the way too. I’ve been watching YouTube videos and reading how-to’s, and practicing.

Here are a few of the first steps to begin with:

Beautiful Brow Techniques

Ahead of time tip: Tweeze and keep your eyebrow hairs trimmed. I trim my eyebrow hairs by brushing them upward and then taking my shears and trimming them at the top so that there are no long hairs going crazy.

Then, when you’re ready to do your eyebrow makeup, you will want to brush your brows with your brow brush and have them smooth and ready for product application.

You can measure where your eyebrows should begin, arch, and end, with your eyebrow brush or a pencil. Begin at your nostril – place your pencil upward. This is where your eyebrow should begin. Then from your nostril, halfway through your eye, to find your natural arch, and then from your nostril to the outer corner of your eye, is where your eyebrow should end.

To begin, start by outlining how you want the shape of your eyebrow to be. If you’re not sure, this is where practice makes perfect. Just be patient with yourself and try a little color at a time till you’re comfortable with the amount of product, and the size brow that you think look best for you. This is what took me a little while to to get used to. But I am getting more and more comfortable with having a finished brow look, and am really enjoying it.

For our next beautiful brow step, which products will be best for you?

Avon Eyebrow Products

Here is a list of the Avon Eyebrow Products that I used, and their prices:

  1. Avon True Color Glimmersticks Brow Definer – Regular price $9.00, right now $3.99
  2. Tattoo Station Proof Brow Pencil – Regular price $10.00, right now $7.00

  4. Tattoo Station Proof Brow Pomade – Regular price $23.00, right now $19.00
  5. Avon Pro Brow Brush – Regular price $9.00, right now $5.59
Avon Eyebrow Products

I will tell you my favorites, and what I used each for.

Firstly, I really like the Ultra Luxury Brow Liner because it is a very fine-pointed pencil and I can resharpen it, and keep it that way. I like using it for outlining. I can get the perfect definition cleanly using this pencil, and it goes on very easily with no tugging. Do not draw with a straight, precision line though, just kind of lightly flick the pencil on to look more natural.

I like using both the Glimmerstick Brow Definer and the Tattoo Station Brow Pencil as well. They are not quite as thin a point, so they are great for filling in. When I decided to fill in an area underneath the front top of my brow that needed to be colored in and blend with the rest of my brow, I found that the Glimmersticks worked best for this job. I ordered the Tattoo Station Brow Pencil and Glimmerstick in different colors – One is more black/gray and the other more taupe/brown. I like to use them both since my hair is different colors too.

For the Pomade. It goes on very well and is brushable. I personally am not ready to use the little brush that comes with it to draw on an outline or fill in with it, at least till I get a bit better with my technique probably. If you’ve had more experience than I, you will most likely love this formulation. It is waterproof and has a 24 hour wear time. I’m going to keep practicing with this one. It has very good pigmentation, and the color I chose is a brown/gray. Perfect for my hair color.

The last step in completing a brow look is to use the spoolie end of the brow brush to gently blend and soften the product(s) used on the brow. You can do this as you go as well. If you blend too much, you can always go back and add more color where needed. But if you like it just the way it is, omit this step. It’s all about what you think looks pretty on you.

I have to tell you that after I finished my brows, I felt more spunky! I put on some darker lipstick, a bit more eyeshadow, fluffed my hair, and put on my earrings. It changed my whole attitude.

Get Your Best Brow Look Going On!

And to me that’s what makeup is all about anyway. Enhancing our natural beauty, and making us feel great. I know that when I feel like I look good, I feel good. It really changes my mood, for the better.

How about you? How does makeup make you feel? We may have to discuss that sometime too.

I hope you enjoyed my eyebrow experimentation with products and techniques. I am very happy to share my experiences with you, and I hope it has helped you in your eyebrow journey too.

Let me know which products you like best, and I’d love to see your pics!

Till next time, stay fabulous!

Eyebrow Grooming 2-Piece Set Offers A $10 Dollar Savings

Eyebrow Grooming 2-Piece Set

Brows are HUGE right now — figuratively and literally, wouldn’t you say? And eyebrow grooming is all the rage, making sure to shape and fill in, and keeping those brows shining in the spotlight, as the superstars they are.

Avon has a fabulous 2-Piece Eyebrow Set to help you do just that. And, it is at a $10.00 dollar savings for you as well.

I told you in a blog post just the other day that I would tell you about the special little insert brochures that come along with each Campaign’s main brochure, and this is just what I was talking about. The hidden treasures that can be found in these special little booklets.

This special is featured in the Let’s Makeup! special feature booklet, on page 4. I’m linking you directly to the page.

Eyebrow Grooming Set for only $8.00

These special little booklets usually have bundle deals within them. And I was very happy to come across this special, as I was looking for an eyebrow brush for myself. I did find the eyebrow brush in the regular Campaign Brochure, and it was listed for $9.00 on its own, then I found this in the Let’s Makeup! booklet, and was like wow! I can get a brush and a brow pencil for $8.00, a dollar less than just the brush by itself. That’s an awesome deal!

Triple Brush-Head Eyebrow Brush

And check out this brow brush — It has 3 different brush heads on the same brush.

Eyebrow Brush from Avon – 3 Brush Heads on 1 Brush

I really love this feature. It’s like having 3 brushes in one. You can brush your brows, then apply the pencil and then blend that out, all using this same brush.

Then to set your brows — I’m going to let you in on an old-school beauty secret that I’ve used for years and just saw KKW’s personal make-up artist tell upcoming make-up artists this same trick on Glam Masters. Use hairspray, honey! What I’ll do with this new brush is spray a little bit of hairspray on the soft brush head (on the dual brush end) and brush that over each brow – you may need to re-spray in-between brushing each brow if the hair spray dries a bit. But yeah, it keeps your brows set great, and no wax flaking like some of the other wax-based finishers. Then just wash off the brush end with a little soap and water and let it dry, and you’re ready for next time.

Choose Your Brow Color

The brow pencil in this set is really awesome too. I love the color I chose, Brunette. I was at first concerned that it may be too dark for me since I have salt and pepper hair, but it’s really nice, kind of a taupe/brown color, so it works perfectly. It goes on very easily and blends very well. It does have wax in its ingredients, and that helps it adhere to your brows, but does not flake.

The brow pencil is actually a Glimmersticks Brow Definer, and not a “pencil” per say, so there is no sharpening necessary, just twist it up. These normally sell for $9.00 each, so yeah, you are getting this for free actually with this bundle deal.

This deal is good through the end of Campaign 4, which will end the afternoon of February 4th. Then the little booklet will be down and the link I’m giving you here for the bundle will no longer work, so don’t wait too long to get yours.

And there are other bundle deals within this little booklet as well. Here’s a link to the front cover of the Let’s Makeup! booklet. And a link to the Campaign 4 Brochure, where you can see the covers of all 3 brochures available now. The main Campaign Brochure plus 2 smaller insert brochures. Just click on the brochure you’d like to look through and then use the side arrows to scroll through the pages or you can type in a page number in the little box atop the pages. It’s a really fun way to shop Avon online, it’s just like looking through the booklets in person.

I’ll be featuring another special bundle deal from the Magnifi-scents Brochure very soon. This little brochure is good through Campaign 5.

I hope you enjoy shopping these little treasure-filled booklets and find some hidden gems for yourself.

Till next time, stay fabulous, and follow your joy!
