Brows (Shaping)

It seems like brows are the very favorite topic of Instagram, pintrest, beauty magazines, blogs, manicure/pedicure places, spas, you name it. It is a hot topic with good reason. They do add shape and interest to your face. It is something that you notice on practically everyone, if they have makeup on or not.

I am not going to say that I am even close to being a expert on brows. Honestly, I am not very good at it at all. I have a lot of friends that are eyebrow challenged, like me. Trust me, it becomes more of a challenge as you age, the eyebrow hairs get more sparse and there may even be a very wild hairs in there.

And more challenges as you age with the skin around those brows. Not being as firm and also the eyelids. This is because of eyelids becoming more hooded or 11 (might be called “wth” lines) the lines above your nose in between your eyebrows. Finding the right shape can become quite a chore.

The drawn on thin lines are out. And so are the McDonald’s arches. That can really age you. And really eyebrow shaping should be fairly easy. Well, I have found something that does make it easy.

Introducing, Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes, this is a great product to help with shaping and filling in the brows. I don’t think it gets the love it deserves. My daughter got this kit for me as a gift and I love it. Everyone can use, it doesn’t matter the age, size or shape of your brows. You can use this kit.

Inside the Brows and Eyes Kit

It comes with 5 stencils, brow wax, brown powder, duo shadows, instructions, a mirror and angled brow brush.

From the stencils you can pick which brow shape works for what you want or just want to try and see how it would look. That makes it so versatile for everyone. Family members or friends, you want to try it out on. It is also fun to see what you would look like with some different shaped brows. You might be surprised how good something looks that you thought you would never go for in eyebrow grooming.

Stencils and Instructions

This is the ultimate in eyebrow grooming, except it doesn’t include tweezers or small scissors. Those have to be bought separately but really most people will have the tweezers already. I don’t use the small scissors anyway, but I do know that is something you can do if you like that look as well.

The angled brush is really nice for applying the brow powder, really nice. I am even considering purchasing another Anastasia brow brush for a back up.

It gives you step by step instructions, on how to do it with a mirror included as well.

The packaging is okay. It looks like a simple cardboard eye shadow pallet, except it has a really nice magnetic close. So, it stays closed.

Anastasia is known for it’s exceptional brow products already. They have a great brow pencil. They really know their market for brows and have succeed at it. I don’t think there is anything from this brand in the brow range that you can go wrong with.

This little baby is the gold star as far as I am concerned and it doesn’t get the love it deserves.

It is $39.50 at Sephora for this whole kit, which is a steal considering everything in it. You can use those stencils for forever.

(This is shown for shaping the brow to get ready to pluck or wax. Not filling in or shaping the brow with the brow powder. Just to be clear on that point.)

So, if you find shaping your brows to be challenging or you just want to see if another shape works better for you. I would get this, it is like brown shaping and filling for dummies.

Love it, love it.
