Killer Brows

The biggest make up trend lately seems to be to having perfect brows. Now unfortunately, mine will never be anywhere near the standard of  'brow goals' photos that girls seem to share incessantly, I don't have the patience or time and to be quite honest I'm really not all too fussed. I'll happily just admire from a distance. 
But I did pick up a couple of products that I thought might make my brows looks a bit more sociable acceptable. 
Firstly, to get killer brows, you need to make sure that they're shaped well, whether that be waxed, threaded or plucked. My favourite place to get my eyebrows waxed is like 2 hours drive away so I get used to them being a mess. 
(As you can tell this palette gets used a lot!)

A basic product that almost all make up companies now product is a brow palette, which had different shades to help fill in the gaps in your eye brows, and usually a wax to help keep them in place. I purchased a palette from Make Up Revolution, for only £2.50 which comes with a little compact mirror in the kit. This is the extent of my brow routine.

This can be used along side brow stencils, which come in different shapes to help keep your brows on point. 



However, my new products that I'm excited to try are:
- Maybelline Brow Satin Medium Brown
- Rimmel Brow This Way Styling Gel Medium Brown

Maybelline Brow Satin

Retailling at £5.99 in Boots (currently on a 3 for 2 offer!) this is a double ended brow tool. The first end is a retractable pencil used to help create a defined brow shape and the second end is a soft padded 'brush' used to fill in your brows. This is perfect for travelling light as it's all you could need in one product. So I'm rather excited to see how good this product is and whether it will be something I purchase again. 

Rimmel Styling Gel

This product is similar to the wax in the palette above, except it also has a colour and therefore is another all in one product. It is very similar to a mascara brush and claims to define and sculpt brows. It is also fade proof which is great as it means one less thing to have to reapply during the day. It is suggested to apply across the eyebrows in the natural direction of hair growth; but definitely be careful to avoid looking extremely fake. This is currently only £3.99 in Boots (they're offering a free gift if you spend over £10 on Rimmel products too). So even if this product turns out to be a bust, for the sake for £4 it's definitely worth a shot. 

You never know, maybe my eyebrow goals might change with these new products!
What is your number one brow product that you can't live without?
