My Everyday Brow Routine

Hi again everyone, so in my last post I revealed that I use actual mascara on my brows as opposed to brow gels and powders and in this post I'll share with you exactly why I do this and which product I do it with. As my hair is a very dark brown colour I use the CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion in the shade black brown on my brows.
When I first got this mascara I was devastated that it was a dark brown, it did literally nothing for my lashes - except for making them even more invisible. My lashes would just simply blend into my skin colour when I used this on them. So, there I was about to cast this mascara to the back of my mind when I decided to have one of my silly moments. I decided since I didn't have anything to do with the mascara that I was at least going to have some fun with it otherwise. 

I messed around with it on my brows and thought that it'd actually looked good. I was a bit confused though. If it made my eyelashes blend into my skin, why didn't it do the same to my eyebrows? I still don't really know why that's happened, but I'm glad it did. This discovery has since served to make my morning makeup routine move along a lot faster, just a few swipes with the wand on each brow and then it's over.

I know that there's the Benefit Gimme Brow that basically does the same thing, but, this mascara is much cheaper. However, the Lash Blast wand is way big, so I would not recommend that you use this if you have thin eyebrows. With the Gimme Brows' small wand I'd recommend that you use that instead if you have thinner brows or another mascara that has a small wand.

When I use this on my brows and it dries, it keeps my the hairs in place and this is probably the reason why I don't think I'll eve use a powder on my brows - my brows can be so unruly. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this for the thick browed gals out there if you're looking for a cheaper alternative.
Quick tip however, don't under any circumstances use black mascara on your brows - even if your hair is black - if anything use a dark brown colour on them. There's a reason why there's no company that makes black brow products - it just doesn't look natural. 
T'is all.
Bye everyone and I'll talk to you in the next post!

  1. It's always good to know what others do with their eyebrows! I currently use powder on mine but am looking to do something different as I don't think that the powder defines them very much.

  2. What I've noticed is that with the mascara it gives you full coverage really fast, and would be good to try if you're looking for more definition.
