If you have been with me for a while then you may know I am rather obsessed with e.l.f makeup. I love that it is inexpensive but still great quality. My holy grail brow product has always been the 'Eyebrow Kit' in the colour Ash. 
When the UK branch of the elf website closed and stopped distribution (it is now back up and running) it lead me to search for more readily available products.

Cool toned brow products can be a little more tricky to find if you aren't willing to fork out nearly £20 for a brow powder (I'm looking at you Anastasia Beverly Hills). But more and more brands are bringing out wider colour ranges and it has lead to me having a few that I want to share.

Aside from the Mac shadow, which I did purchase in duty free, all of the other products are less than £6 and pretty easy to get your hands on.

In terms of application I start with a either the wax from the e.l.f kit or the Maybelline colour tattoo applied with the real techniques brush, followed by a powder using the slightly thicker angled brush from seventeen. Then the brow gel/mascara to fix it all in place.

I prefer to use separate brushes for each stage as it means you get a sharper more precise line and quite honestly you can wash the brushes slightly less often if one brush isn't getting clogged up with both wax and a powder. Lazy or what?!

I get a little bit obsessed with brow products as I think well groomed eyebrows make such a big difference to your face. So if you have any other recommendations I would love to hear them.

  1. I hardly ever fill in my brows but when I do, I opt for Sleek's brow palette. It's really good :) X
