I always have a love-hate relationship with my brows. Sometimes its on point and sometimes its too thick but often times its just ordinary. I once had it dyed to brown at browhaus because i was too lazy to do my brows everyday. The color stayed on for a month or two and then I was back to having a plain jane brows. I was actually looking forward to this segment of the event as I am one of those girls who doesn’t have a clue on how to handle their own brows. I had tried benefit before but it was for their lightweight hello flawless foundation. I had my eyebrows done by my sister before i went to the event but still i was aiming for a more defined version. Honestly i don’t trust myself with my own eyebrows as i tend to do a betty la fea job at it. One of my biggest concern for my eyebrows is that it has spars and its unshaped. This segment was hosted by make up artist and beauty guru Ana Victorino.
This is what i learned from her before she introduced our Brow guru “Celina”.
The right brow shape can
1. Slim down your nose
2. Open up your eyes
3. Frame your face
My best friend Bianca was chosen as the first model because her type of brows is the one with the spars. Celina applied Goof-Proof Brow Pencil which i agree with Ms. Ana that it was like a tongue twister when spoken. Ms. Celina told us to focus on spars when filling up the brows. This product is made of wax and can last up to 12 hours plus it comes with 6 shades. You read that correctly it really comes with 6 amazing colors that can cater to your brow needs. It is actually a lot thicker than the normal eye pencil but when i got the chance to hold it up close it was actually easier to glide unto the brows.The sample photo of the product posted on this blog was downloaded directly from benefits official website for your reference.
There were 5 girls that was picked By Ms. Ana to have the brow make over by Ms. Celina. The categories were the girl who had spars, uneven, unshaped,undefined and not groomed. Ms. Celina have done a great job in solving all the girls brow problem and here is the end result.
After that we were given a chance to do our own eyebrows using benefits new line of brow products. There were only 2 products that i absolutely adore. I was actually clueless on what to pick but luckily Ms. Celina was there to guide me. I told her i want a more defined but still natural looking brows. she told me since i already had it shaped all i need to do was enhance it.
‘High Brow’ Highlighter – at first i was hesitant to use this as when i swatch it on the back of my hand all I could see was a pink streak. Ms. Celina told me that this can be used to brighten the eyes. Since i have dark circles around my eyes I opted to use it anyway . So what i did i glided this on top of my brows and I find it creamy and easy to apply. After a few minutes i blended it and indeed it turned out to be natural looking and my dark circles was not that noticeable.
Gimme Brow’ Brow Building Gel- I am every bit in-love with this product as for one it was easier to apply. I love having thicker brows as it makes me look more younger than I already am. My eyebrow goals are Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins. I want a brow version like that without the restriction of smearing or being erased easily by sweat or water. What i love about this is that it gives you the freedom to shape your brows without looking unruly. The fibers of the brush stick to your brows and the formula of the gel was not that waxy so it was easier to apply. It also fills in your spars making the illusion that you have a thicker natural looking eyebrows. Plus it was not that heavy and you don’t have to worry about it being erased as benefit promised that it was waterproof. I actually tested that out first hand after the event it rained like crazy. So when i alight in front of our house i was already soaking wet. i dried myself with a towel and was about to wash my face but then i noticed my brows and it was still divine.
Here is the result of my amazing brow experience with benefit. I would definitely purchase the products mentioned above. I have recently found out that benefit offers brow services like waxing and threading. I would like to try that really soon.
