Brow Confidential - My favorite Brow Products RIGHT NOW!

Maybelline Master Drama Eye Studio in Bold Brown | Wet n Wild Color Icon in Mink Brown and Dark Brown | Boom Boom Brow Powder in Tina | Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Chocolate | Wink Brows to Go Quad in Chocolate | Tarte Tinted Brow Gel in Rich Brown 

I am all about my Brows, and the BOLDER the BROW the better.  Here is a list of my current faves (ranging in various prices   - proof that quality isn't always determined in price)  and how I like to use them.  You can certainly channel your inner Cara and Brooke with these products.  Enjoy ! 

I LOVE this cream/gel textured pencil ( not intended for brows). It is dark and smooth for blending with a small angle brush. This gives the same effect of the Dip Brows at a fraction of the price.  

Wet n Wild Color Icon Brow & Eye Pencil -  $.97  (Target Stores) 

Now at under a dollar you would think a pencil would not be of the best quality.  That is sooo not the issue here. I bought these on a whim not thinking I would even like them but I was pleasantly surprised.  I  absolutely love these pencils , I have both the Dark Brown and the Mink Brown sometimes I like to have a darker brow ( Mink is a tad darker not black but darker than your typical brown).  If you're on a budget these pencils are perfect for you. 

Do I even have to discuss ABH Dip Brow ?? It is any and every makeup lovers favorite or one of their favorites.  A little goes a long way and Anastasia is the Queen of Eyebrows so all of her Brow Products ( when used properly) give you superb results.  I did find that I can also use Medium Brown as well as Ebony due to the color of my natural brows, but when paired with a Brow Powder ( if the dip brow is too light) all is well again.  

LOVE this powder, Miss Tina as I affectionately like to call it. I use this to fill in my brows when using pencils I like the shade of brown its not too light or too dark.  It is pigmented enough that my brow hairs seamlessly blend in.  I go lighter on powder towards the start of my brows to give that natural look.  I've had it for a while and it is not anywhere near finished , it really lasts.  

This Quad is complete with Highlighter ,  Wax and two Brow Powders all the tools you need to create , sculpt and perfect the perfect brow.  I love keeping this in my makeup bag during the day its about 4 products in one compact - genius !  

Nails : Zoya Nail Laqcuer Pixie Dust  in "Arlo" 

I've used this alone on my brows with no other product and it really gives you a natural effect.  You want to fill in sparse areas but you DON'T want to look like you've just filled in your brows - this is what you need.  Also perfect for those days when you want to wear that bare naked makeup as if you don't have anything else on.  

**Update 10/24 : The Tarte tinted brow gel paired with a brow pencil for a more defined brow is effortlessly chic. I've used it with the Wet n Wild pencil in "Dark Brown"  and I loved the look , you can check it out here and here . **

There you have it , my current Brow Favorites !
