Welcome to my blog. I'm Lucy. I document my life, travels, food, favourites here...

The Edit: Filling In The Brows


Most girls fill their brows in nowadays, whether they've done it well or not, they do it. I started to fill mine in about over a year ago because they were a little sparse. I naturally have quite thick brows, the hair is very dense and they can get out of control at times. Except I made the dreaded mistake when I was younger. I over plucked. Now it wasn't over the top, but they were silly and now I'm left with ends which are thinner than the base. I've been spending the past few months growing them out and they're getting there, but I still need some help. I will add that I prefer to use a pencil, but I don't think I've found the 'perfect' shade yet.

The first product I started out with was the colour Naked in the Urban Decay Naked Palette, which you can see has a massive dint in it. I think this is my favourite powder out of them all, just because it's the colour I want in pencil form! I've tried Wedge by MAC, which isn't right for me at all, but now it's a great crease shade. HD Brows in Foxy is another one I've tried, which I do like. I mix the warm brown and dark brown together to create a shade which is acceptable. Yet again, I prefer to use these as eyeshadow. Next up are two new additions, Boutique eyeshadow in A Nod Is As Good As A Wink, basically a brown but if used very lightly, it's a good shade. Urban Decay The Brow Box is something I've only had for a few days now, but I'm the most impressed with it. It has two shades and wax, along with two mini brushes and a mini set of tweezers. Perfect for travelling to. 

My favourite eyebrow products are pencils. I find them easier to work with and I find they create a shape which frames my face well. A good one to start out with would be either, Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in 002 Hazel or L'Oreal Super Liner Brow Artist in 02 Blonde. I like it when brow pencils comes with a little brush attached, it just saves on something to carry around. The L'Oreal one is my favourite, as on the other side of the pencil, it has a little wax pencil. Something unique for a drugstore product. I've been using MAC Fling most days for months now and I do like it, except it runs out quickly and I find it's a little too ashy for me. I next tried the Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil in Blonde, which is far too dark for me so that will be given to a friend soon. My latest find is Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in 01 Blonde, which is a new favourite. It's a hard wax stick with a spooly on the other side, along with a sharpner, which I haven't figured out how to use yet. This is the one I'm wearing in the above picture, as it's been my go-to pencil for a few weeks. 

So, what do you use on your brows and do you have any suggestions for me?
