JUST BROWS-ING

Simply You Style - - Simply You | Beauty -

Even make-up novices have sur­ren­dered to the fleek­seek­ing brow trend and know the im­por­tance of a good, strong brow. We spend plenty of time draw­ing on, fill­ing in, and shap­ing them, so pre­serv­ing all that hard work makes sense, right? Un­for­tu­nately, the ma­jor­ity of us are miss­ing the last cru­cial step – ap­ply­ing an eye­brow gel.

“Brow gels are the ul­ti­mate styling prod­uct when it comes to set­ting and sculpt­ing,” says Ben­e­fit Cos­met­ics’ global brow ex­pert Jared Bai­ley. “Think of a clear gel like a top coat for your other brow prod­ucts,” he says. To ap­ply a clear gel, al­ways start where the hair is most dense. “You want to di­rect the hair in the di­rec­tion you want it to stay.”

If you’re after a multi-pur­pose prod­uct, try a coloured brow gel with added fi­bres. “Fiber gels are like the ‘lit­tle black dress’ of brow prod­ucts be­cause they do it all – tint, tame and vo­lu­mise. The for­mula glides right over the hair and cre­ates a glaze while fill­ing in bare spots.” Just as easy to ap­ply, start by back­comb­ing the brows to wrap the prod­uct around each hair. “This will look messy at first, but then redip the wand for more prod­uct and style the brows in the di­rec­tion of the hair growth,” ex­plains Bai­ley.
