Brows for Dummies from Anastasia

As I mentioned last week, I am becoming more obsessed with my brows than ever before. They make such a difference, especially when I'm going for the no-makeup makeup look. A little extra definition on my brows really make my eyes seem brighter and I look more awake.

When I first tried Anastasia's Go Brow Universal Brow Pencil, I wasn't impressed. The pencil was very hard and I couldn't get the color to start. But once I warmed it up a bit, I go it working and the texture is great. I was skeptical of a "universal color" as well. How could one color work for everyone? But I do think it might actually work for most people with light, medium, or dark brown hair. It is a mid level brown that is a bit ashy, so it should blend in to most browish brow colors. I use light short strokes to fill in where my brows need some extra color and fullness. They stay put and the color lasts all day. On the other end, is a matte highlighter that is perfect to define below the brow without adding more dark color, just besure you blend it in 1well. I like the simplicity of this product, very streamlined. For $21 you get all you really need for great, easy brows. Currently, it is only available at Sephora stores and of course online.

Brow Lovely!

Since you are into brows, you should try Benefit BrowZings. That stuff rocks! It is on the pricier side but last forever.

Benefit Brow-Zing was the first brow product I ever used. I think I had it for 5 years before I tried something new!

Hi Beth-

Would you recommend this product over Benefit's? I am always looking to try something new.

I like the simplicity of this product but it may not work for everyone. If you like Browzings, you might like the pan color Anastasia has that you apply with an angle brush. Or in the past I have used DuWop's Brow Wow which is very similar to Benefit's. It all about finding the one that matches you color the best and finding a product you love to use. Good luck!
