Face: How I do my brows (Vid)

Eyebrows, just how important are they?

If you asked my 15 year old self she’d probably say not very…

One boring night, 2 stray hairs and Mum’s sharp tweezers ended in what could only be described as an eyebrow plucking frenzy.  Over the years, people have complimented me on my brows which is nice but now I feel it fitting to fill in the gaps for you, both figuratively and literally.

So this video shows you what I do to fill in the brows that I have:

I am not a makeup artist nor am I changing careers.  This is merely what works for me (as a reformed eyebrow criminal). 


My eyebrow products: 1.  Natio Brow Kit (Light/Med) 2. Angled Eyebrow Brush 3. Art Deco Eyebrow Gel. I bought all of these from Farmers but if you have favourite brands by all means seek them out, just whatever works for you. Alternatively type each of these into Google and you should be able to find a stockist.

Before you pick up those weapons (tweezers), I suggest you seek wise council from a brow specialist and/or buy a good brow kit first.

As luck would have it, thicker brows have been the new black for quite some time (try years).  So may the eyebrow force be with you because it sure as heck wasn’t with me in 1998.

    Haha this is SUCH a great post! What I said to you the other day went down the loo- I had to go and get my overgrown eyebrows done today!

    Thanks Gaia, all I can say is at least yours can get ‘overgrown’! 😉

    If only we had a mirrorball to look into the future of our eyebrows (as teens) ay Sarah! And thank you, I’m glad there was a helpful tip or two in there for ya 😀

    Thanks Gayle! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’d be lost without my eyebrow kit and a good set of brows so I thought I better share the knowledge 😁

    Love the Eyebrows Erin’s and the photos lol. I have never had eyebrows nor cared until now. Takes us to get older to figure it out aye ☺️. Going to look for the Natio one & try now xx

    Thanks Julie! Yep, its that old saying ‘you don’t know what you’ve got (had) til its gone’. So I just try and make the most of the ones I do have 🙂 Definitely that Natio works for me so give it a whirl. P.S. It comes with a brush, but if I were you I’d buy a seperate one 😊

    Thanks Louise! It was a bit scary being that close to the camera but the main thing was it was helpful 😀 xx

    Just like a pro well done😀!!
    Eyebrows are THE most important feature if you ask me. Just ask the boys that had them shaved off at school! How odd did they look without them ?!

    Thanks Clare! Too right, they looked so odd and yet I more or less did the same thing to myself with tweezers! Ah well, we all have horror stories….lesson learned 😁
