All about brows

You guys know how much I LOVE doing my brows. Since the past three years I believe, there has not been a single day when I have left the house without drawing in the brows.

I can allow mascara and lipstick, shocker I know but brows are essential for me even when it comes to a 'no-make-up' look. I just feel naked without them. Plus sparse, undefined brows make any one look older. 

I usually use drug store brow pencils, usually chocolate brown in colour to quickly create a shape. I use pencils purely due to convenience. However the HD Brow palette in Vamp is a match made in heaven for my brows. 

It comes with three brow shades namely a deep coffee brown, a cool taupe-grey and a warm chocolate brown to mix and match and create the perfect colour. We also get a skin toned colour for the brow bone, so that the brows pop up more and to even out edges. 

It also comes with a mini applicator which I thought would be useless but is in fact of very soft and of good quality. I in fact only use this to apply the powders as its quick and easy instead of using a make-up brush. 

The deep coffee brown is too intense for me and I would reserve it for occasions or when I am trying out a particular look which requires an intense brow. Think Selena Gomez.

My two favourite colours from the quad for everyday use are the cool taupe-grey and the warm chocolate brown. 

I am wearing the taupe-grey colour below and it matches my brow hairs exactly hence looks uber natural. You can't even tell I am wearing any powder and it makes the brow look naturally fuller. 

The chocolate brown colour that I am wearing below however matches my hair colour exactly and makes my brow look intense and texturised. 

You can however tell that I have probably done my brows with this colour. 

I usually wear glasses and I can't stress how important brows are in framing the face. I adore the palette as these are the only powders I can use on my brows and anything else look too fake or does not do justice. 

If you are a brunette or have black hair and want something that looks natural, does not smudge and lasts long, then the HD Brow Palette in Vamp would be perfect for you. 

For £19.95, it is quite a good deal as its likely to last for a couple of months for sure.

I remember contacting them and checking out their website to order the HD Brow palette but they told me they were in the stages of being revamped so this must be the new revamped packages.

For a short time I was getting the actual HD Brows done professionally.

Now I know the palettes back I'll have to check it out :o)

I sooo want this. Looks so natural. my eyebrows are super black. so i'll only get use out of two colors, have you used all of the colors? neutral look?

@Lina Kim - Try feathering in a powder eyeshadow that is lighter than your hair colour and darker than your actual brow colour, with a liner brush. Also finish it off with a clear mascara as that will give it texture :)

@LaaLaa Monroe - You are correct, these are the revamped palettes.

Sheefa F said...

@Crissie - I only used two colours as one was too dark for me. You could probably get away using the chocolate brown and the darkest colour.
