Simple Natural Eyebrows with Anastasia from Sephora

Ok brow game is not something I've ever really had, as it's been really quite the struggle to shape and fill in my frustrating situation of dark, thick eyebrows with spots of sparseness that don't grow out to match the rest of my brow hairs. Plus having a scarcity in the market for black hair shades doesn't help either!

So when I received the Anastasia Dip brow pomade in "granite" and Anastasia Brow whiz pencil in "ebony", I thought this was a killer combo to finally get my brows up to speed. The pencil has a very fine tip and I use it to outline the brow shape, plus fill in any missing spots. The dip brow pomade from Anastasia is of course one of the beauty scene's most-raved about product, and is a creamy, smudge-proof formula which you can apply really thickly or faintly with the slightest variation of the strength of your application.

I also received the Anastasia brow gel which is a clear brow mascara used at the end to set your brows.

All the products are from Sephora.com.au, which previously used to be known as Luxola (luxola.com/au). They changed their name when they expanded beyond a bricks-and-mortar store into a fierce online presence!

I've been using these products for a week everyday now and I'm really liking the improvements made to my brows! I put together a little tutorial of how I use these Anastasia products to achieve a quick and simple brow look you can use everyday before going to work, school or anything that doesn't require a super polished and precise set of brows sculpted to perfection.

Please go easy on me as I'm only just starting to find the right products to groom my brows! The end result is not completely perfect and defined, but is quick and easy and still looks natural.

Step 1:
Use the spoolie brush at the end of Anastasia's Brow whiz to brush your hairs into place. Very important if you naturally have curly hair to keep them in line.

Step 2:
Use the pencil end of the Brow whiz to fill in an outline of the shape you want, at the bottom and then the top. Normally it's best to make sure the bottom line is more defined than the top for a more natural appearance.

Step 3:
You can use a heavier hand to go over the ends of the brow where it tapers off, to define them further or elongate if you want longer brows.

Step 4:
Dip your angled brow brush into Anastasia's brow pomade, and carefully fill in your brows from around the part directly above your iris towards the outer ends. This is because when you first dip in the pomade it is the heaviest and most pigmented, so you don't want to start from the inner end of your brow which is where you would want a lighter look if you're going for something natural.

Step 5:
Now that you have less product on your brush you can start lightly brushing in the inner ends of your brows. You'll notice that it's a lot more faded. Keep working in the product to try and create a gradient effect, where it gradually transitions from light to dark. Whenever you re-dip into the pomade make sure your first fresh applications go onto the middle to the end of your brows (as in step 4) and you only go into the inner ends of your brows afterwards when there's only residual product.

Step 6:
Feel free to keep filling in your brows in sparse spots or to line them up more evenly as necessary, either with the pomade or the brow whiz pencil if you only need to make light, tiny touch ups.
When you're satisfied use Anastasia's brow gel to brush them into place and make sure they don't smudge or move by the end of the day.

Hope this tutorial was of some help! My brows aren't completely perfect but these are simply the steps I take for an everyday look that doesn't require too much maintenance. What products do you guys use for your brows? :)

  1. To be honest, I always use brown eyeshadows (as recommended by my fellow make-up artist) but using the brow gel may be a better option :) Your eyebrows look perfect!

  16. ABH brow products are LIFE CHANGING aren't they?? I used to use pencils that would smear or wipe off and powders that were just meh, but Dip Brow is my jam. That stuff lasts forever and you get such a nice shape! There's definitely a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, your brows look amazing. Your eyebrows look great!!! I also really love that lipstick on you.. What color and brand is it if you don't mind me asking? Hope you're doing well, Izzy!
