Creating natural looking brows with Maybelline Fashion Brow Sharp PencilSunday, March 29, 2015
Lately, I find myself unable to leave the house without having to groom my brows first. I can skip everything else except for my brows... and my powder... and my blush... ok, and my lippie. Fine, I can't leave the house without putting on an acceptable and decent face, but it's the brows that I have to groom real well.
The last time Maybelline came out with anything to do with the eyebrows was their Maybelline Eye Studio Fashion Eyebrow 24H Coloring Mascara, which was also a HUGE hit with not only for me, but for all brow enthusiasts who have been looking for the perfect washable brow coloring tool.
And now, Maybelline comes out with their own eye brow pencil that ladies would sure love! Not only is it super affordable, it's compact and very convenient to use as well.

When doing eyebrows either on me or on clients, I make sure that I make it as natural looking as possible. Blending is also important so the product's blend-ability is also important. Although I wouldn't recommend pencils also that are so blend-able that they become smudgy. Don't use kohl pencils for your brows because they can smudge.
I find myself reaching out for this pencil lately because I haven't been able to have my brows threaded so I need a natural looking brow product to make my brows look put together, but not drawn on.
On my face, I am wearing: Pixy Ultimate Makeup Cake, CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Pretty Peach, Maybelline Fashion Brow Sharp Pencil in Light Brown, Canmake Nose Powder, Maybelline Lip Polish by Color Sensational in Glam 15
