Brow Must-Haves

Most of you know, I’m a bit of a Benefit lover… I did work for them what seems like a lifetime ago…well, it was 6 years ago. I’m a sucker for their pretty packaging but more than that, I love their products.

Recently, they launched the Brow Contour Pro… I have my firm favourite brow products which I’ve mentioned before:

Precisely my Brow Pencil and Gimme Brow and if i feel like a bolder brow, I go for some Brow Zings.

For more details on these (and some of my other faves), head over to Beauty Benefits

When it comes to brow products, I like what I know and I know what I like and I’ve been like that for years, but every so often, Benefit will bring out a new brow product and it will be a total game changer.

Brow Contour Pro - Duty Free

Step forward the Brow Contour Pro £28.50 (photo above taken in Duty Free at Glasgow Airport hence reduced price) This gem is a 4 in1 defining and highlighting brow pencil.

Firstly, it reminds me of those pens you used to get with the 10 colours and I loved them, so that’s a good start.

Secondly it comes in five different shades:

01 – Blonde/Light

02 – Brown/Light

03 – Brown/Medium

04 – Black/Light

05 –  Black/Deep

It’s probably best to get one of the Benebabes at one of the fab counters in Boots, Debenhams, House of Fraser (or anywhere else you usually find a Benefit counter) to help you choose the right shade. As much as I am fair skinned, my hair is balayage so I tend to have a darker root and my eyebrows are naturally a bit darker anyway so for Precisely my Brow Pencil I tend to go for shade 2 or 3. In the Brow Contour Pro, I went for shade 1 because there is a darker pencil within it.

The Brow Contour Pro features a lighter brow shade, deeper brow shade, edge definer and arch highlighter to create clean, shaped brows with depth & dimension.

How To Apply…

Click & Contour!

Press down lighter shade tab and twist until you see product.

Fill in brow with LIGHTER SHADE from START to ARCH.

To switch shades, just press down tab of selected shade until it clicks in place & twist for product.

Next, fill in brow with DEEPER SHADE from ARCH to END.

Then, stroke DEFINER below brow from START to END and above brow from ARCH TO END.

Blend gently.

Last, apply HIGHLIGHTER beneath your ARCH and blend outward.

This is a great tool for creating the perfect brow. All too often, I find that people forget just how much of a difference brows make. They totally frame your face.

Remember, your brows are sisters not twins, so they shouldn’t be identical.

If you’ve tried this product (or any other amazing brow or beauty products) that I should know about, let me know. I’m always on the look out for new things to try. (Although it’s got to be a pretty special brow product to knock any of Benefit’s ones out of my Top Beauty Must Haves).

Hope you have a great weekend.
