My current makeup routine? A tinted moisturizer, concealer, a little bronzer, mascara, and brow products!
Since wearing a mask is a real doozy when it comes to applying makeup, if I’m going to put on some beauty products I like to keep it nice and light. Since I’m probably due back for a microblading touchup at this point, after I apply my tinted moisturizer I like to go in and fill in any sparsity in my brows. And the brand I usually reach for? Benefit of course!
I’ve been using Benefit’s brow products for years now and truthfully, after having tried out so many other brands, I do have to say I probably like Benefit the best. They have so many options to choose from, the products glide on the skin, and they stay put.
So if you’re curious on what items to try out (since they have such a huge arsenal of products), keep reading!
Okay, so when it comes to brows, the first thing you want to do is fill them in. I love using a fine tip pencil and that’s where Precisely, My Brow Pencil comes in (C$32).
Available in 12 shades, this bestselling brow product is long wearing and waterproof. It features an ultra-fine tip allowing you to recreate brow hairs that look natural and flawless. One end contains a spoolie for grooming and the other has the retractable pencil which helps to shape and contour brows for a natural-looking effect.
This pencil is one of my favourites and I find it does last all day. It’s great for adding in a natural brow effect and won’t smudge or move throughout the day. Benefit has a lot of brow pencils to choose from, but truthfully I really love this one since the the pencil itself is very thin and allows you to customize the look you are going for. It really does leave you with a natural effect and the pigment of the product just glides on the skin. You don’t have to press down too hard for this pencil to show up (using a dry pencil is the worst).
Now that you have your perfect brows down-pat, don’t forget to set them! Grab Benefit’s 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Eyebrow Gel (C$32) to lock those brow hairs in place.
This clear brow gel helps to shape and tame brows, as well as lock in those perfectly drawn brows so they don’t budge for 24 hours.
Benefit also has a tinted brow gel as well but I love this one since it’s clear and universal. I love swiping this on to groom and tame and I find the formula to be flexible, not stiff. It also doesn’t flake off at all throughout the day.
Finally, to condition your brows and help them grow, take a look at their Browvo Conditioning Primer (C$38).
I didn’t actually actually know this product existed until recently and it’s a clear, nutrient-rich gel that primes and conditions brows, helping them to grow and look healthier.
Apply this primer before bed or even before you fill in your brows to help them grow and be healthier. The formula contains keratin and soy proteins, which are known to help brows grow and look fuller. In addition to giving your brows a nice treat, this is also great to use underneath your brow products as a primer so your products last longer.
The applicator is a soft-touch one that allows you to sweep this pen from root to tip. Although it’s not necessarily a necessity, if you suffer from sparse brows, then I would definitely take a look at incorporating this product into your brow routine (at least at night).
Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what Benefit has in their brow line up. I would recommend waiting to get one of their sets since you can usually get a bunch of full-size products for an amazing price (usually less than half off), so keep your eyes peeled for releases.
