Anastasia Beverly Hills

Eyebrows

By  | 

Let’s talk about eyebrows today. I have to confess that I’m very lazy when it comes to eyebrows. I don’t pluck and/or trim them regularly. I also do not have the urge to have perfectly shaped eyebrows at all times. I prefer them a bit messy, which looks more natural to me. When I pluck my eyebrows I follow my natural shape. I rarely use stencils. Almost always when I do my make up I also fill in the eyebrows with a pencil or an eyeshadow. I prefer pencils over an eyeshadow, because for me pencils are easier to use. Here are the eyebrow products that I use (more or less) often.

Products in the photo above:

  1. Philips (eyebrow) trimmer: I use it to trim and shave my eyebrows. Mainly I shave what’s above the shape.
  2. Japonesque scissors: With scissors I finish what the trimmer didn’t reach and shorten the hair where needed.
  3. Milani – Brow Fix in 02 Medium: A very practical when you’re traveling. There are two different shadows for eyebrows included, a highlighter, brush, sponge applicator and tiny tweezers. The shadows can be also used as eyeshadows. I thought the lighter shade would be perfect for me, but it’s a bit too yellow.
  4. Essence Stylist Set comes with two shadows, three stencils and a brush. One of the stencils fits me, but I rarely use it. I like that the shadows are ashy toned and not too yellow. I use the lighter shade often. I don’t like the packaging.
  5. Anastasia Beverly Hills 17A brush is a nice brush. I like that it’s stiff but the bristles are not harsh. Though I’d prefer if it wouldn’t be so wide.
  6. Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pencil in Ash Blonde: Love this pencil. It’s very hard and I love the light ashy color.
  7. Make Up Factory – Eyebrow Styler 6: Another favourite of mine. It’s darker and a bit more yellow toned, but still natural looking. This one is the softest of all brow pencils that I have.
  8. CK – eyebrow pencil in Blonde: Nice pencil but a bit too grey.
  9. Essence – Eyebrow Designer in 03 Light Brown: Nice color but I really have no idea why did they put shimmer in it?!
  10. Essence – Lash & Brow gel mascara: I use it to keep my eyebrows in place. It not like an hair gel, but it still does the job.

I forgot to include my tweezers in the photo above.

This is how the trimmer looks like.

    Moje obrvi potrebujejo le pinceto in občasno črn svinčnik, da zapolnim praznine. Je prav hecno, ker so moji lasje naravno svetlo rjavi-blond obrvi so pa čisto črne :unsure:
    Hvala bogu da so sedaj močne obrvi v modi :wink:

      Obrvi so praktično vedno temnejše od las. :yes:
      Ti kar ponosno “nosi” svoje črne obrvi! :cute:

    Catrice Brow set! I used the Essence brow set before but it was to yellow-ish for me and the darker shade was too dark, and the light one too light xD
    so I bought the Catrice one and its amazing: the colors are ashy, I can use both shades, depending on what makeup look I want to achieve, both shadows have great staying power, and you get a two-sided brush and tiny tweezers with it…and the packaging is practical and you can carry it around in your purse. I just love it!
    and since I have never been able to find a brow pencil that suits me, I guess I’ll stick to it =) :wub: :thumb:

    Uf, res dost stvari:) Sj nisi useh kupila ane? Koliko pa stane tale Philips brivnik?:)

    • Maestra

      August 27, 2011 at 21:49

      A veš,d a sem pa res čisto vse od tega sama kupila. :yes: :biggrin:
      Skozi leta … Spomnim se, da sem Anastasia zadevi kupila, ko sta bili znižani za 70%. CK sem prav tako kupila na znižanju enkrat davno. Essence zadeve sem kupila čisto tako, da sem nekje začela. Make Up Factory se mi je zdel dobre barve.
      Philips brivnik pa se ne spomnim,koliko je stal. Kupila sem ga že kar precej časa nazaj. Rekla bi,da je okrog 15-20€. :think:

        Aja no skozi leta pa se zihr nabere :) Samo ti imaš že tako toliko stvari, maš pomoje že samo eno sobo za kozmetiko:P :wub:
        Pa tale brivnih ubistvu samo zabrije dlačice ali kako, mislm se kj vidi ko jih pobriješ, si ne znam predstavljat, ker mam res goste tmne obrvi in nevem če se ne bi kljub temu kj poznalo :) Je pa huda zadeva slišat gre gotovo hitreje kot s pinceto… :hmm:

          Na temnih obrveh se verjetno ne bi najbolje obneslo britje. Morda samo, ko želiš kaj na hitro in si ne moreš privoščiti puljenja. Sicer pa tole zadevo priporočam najbolj za krajšanje obrvi. :yes:

    Jaz imam samo pinceto. :)

      August 27, 2011 at 21:45

      S pinceto sem tudi jaz začela pred mnogo leti. :yes:

    Uuuu – sploh nisem vedela, da obstajajo tako uporabne škarjice. :w00t:

    • Maestra

      August 27, 2011 at 20:54

      :yes: Še dobro, da imaš mene. :biggrin:
      Škarjice so res uporabne, sicer mi uspe s tem glavničkom “uporabno” operirati samo na eni obrvi, na drugi pa bi moral biti na drugi strani, a ga ne gre drugače namestiti. Je pa seveda snemljiv in lahko škarjice uporabljaš tudi brez njega. ;)
      Škarjice bi za moj okus lahko bile malo manjše, a so vseeno kar priročne. Všeč mi je, ker se ne bojim, da si bom oko staknila. Če rabim manjše, posežem po tistih špičastih za nohte in upam, da se ne pičim v oko.

    Uf, to je pa veliko materiala za obrvi :).
    Jaz jih krajšam redno – to naredim kar s škarjicami za nohte (obrvi počešem naravnost držim z glavničkom in s škarjicami malo oblikujem). Obenem redno populim tiste, ki gredo čez linijo. Imam tudi Essence brow set, kjer občasno uporabim temnejšo senčilo; sem pa ugotovila da je to primerno bolj za večerno priložnosti, čez dan na soncu mi je učinek preveč opazen…

    • Maestra

      August 27, 2011 at 20:43

      Hehehe, res ni malo. :blush: :biggrin: Večino dokaj redno uporabljam. In z leti se stvari naberejo. Ko sem začela obrvi sploh “barvati”, sem se zelo lovila glede barve svinčnikov, senčil.
      Tudi jaz sem včasih uporabljala škarjice za nohte, a sem se vedno bala, da si bom staknila oko. :scared: Ko sem zagledala te od Japonesque (v drogeriji v Ameriki), sem jih kar kupila. So sicer malenkost (pre)velike, a so kar kul.
      Če nanašaš s čopičkom, ki je priložen Essence set-u, potem te razumem, da izgleda zelo opazno, ker je čopič takšen. Priporočam, da obrvi dobro prečešeš, potem ko si že nanesla senčilo. Tako omiliš oster videz senčila in izgleda bolj naravno. ;)

    :haha: Šimer v svinčniku za obrvi, joooj, Essence ga pa res zna pihnit. Jaz sem še zmeraj pri osnovah, ker še zmeraj nisem zadovoljna s svojo obliko obrvi in še zmeraj hočem k dobri (!) kozmetičarki da mi jih oblikuje (k slabi sem že šla, pa ne bi več :wink: ) in še zmeraj tega nisem storila. *vzdih* Torej ena navadna pinceta in od Essenca gel maskara. Včasih dam gor še kakšno rjavkasto senčko, samo vse redkeje, ker ni nobena čisto 100% glede na odtenek in me to moti. Zelo rada bi si kupila dober svinčnik za zapolnjevanje obrvi ampak imam tako čudno barvo, da si je ne znam kupit. So svetlejše od las in nekako … sivo-rjave? Ne starikavo sivo, ampak tako … ne vem. Čudna barva in večina rjav ne paše zraven. Bedno. Če lahko priporočiš kakšno dobro kozmetičarko, se pa tudi priporočam za infromacijo! :rose:

      August 27, 2011 at 20:38

      jap, šimer v svinčku za obrvi. V trgovini tega nisem opazila, ker seveda ni testerjev. :hmm:
      Verjetno si opazila, da sem večkrat v postu omenila, da so nekateri odtenki preveč rumeni zame. Po moje pepelnati odtenki bolj naravno izgledajo za obrvi. Predlagam, da iščeš med takšnimi odtenki, ki potegnejo na sivkasto. Poglej pri Make Up Factory ali Art Deco. A si tale Essence set že preizkusila? Ta temno senčilo je kar “nevtralne” sivkasto rjave barve. Ko naneseš senčilo, trepalnice še dobro prečeši, da omiliš videz. ;)
      Kozmetičarke pa žal ne znam priporočati, ker ne hodim h kozmetičarki. :blush:

      Lahko ti jaz priporočam mojo:) Občasno hodm k njej na obrvi, ko se jih meni ne da kdaj pulit in jih super zrihta:)

        Tjaša, lepo prosim za info! Ne morem klikniti tvojega profila, lahko pa ti mojega, imam javni mail, lahko tam urediva, da ne bova pri Parokeetkah nedovoljene reklame zganjale. :)

        Maestra, sem potem v enem od komentarjev ujela ( :search: *) da je Catrice eyebrow set boljši, tako da bom najprej tega preizkusila! :) Hvala za nasvete!

        *mi je tako všeč, da sem prav iskala priložnost, da ga nekam napopam :wink:

    Yeah… my eyebrows are quite big and they sometimes look very messy… but I’m don’t ‘take care’ og them very often. The only thing I use to add some eyebrows is a eyeshadow from Strom Sleek palette :)
