Want Natural Looking Brows? Look No Further!
I’ve loved makeup for as long as I can remember. I think it was truthfully my first love and then shoes. I think my love for makeup stemmed from watching my mom do her makeup. I was just fascinated by this whole theory of enhancing your beauty through makeup products. I most definitely started wearing makeup early in middle school, probably around 5th or 6th grade and let me tell ya, it was not good. Thick black eyeliner and pencil thin eyebrows, it’s painful for me to see old photos. I’m glad I went through that phase though, because you learn best through experience and mistakes. Since then, I’ve spent countless hours doing research on makeup products, figuring out my skin type and skin tone, watching makeup tutorials, finding inspiration for makeup looks, and finding the perfect brow pencil for natural looking brows. I’ve blossomed and not to boast, but I’m pretty damn good at doing makeup.
Here is the thing about makeup, truthfully there is no right or wrong way of choosing a look. It is a form of art that expresses your personality and that’s the beauty of makeup. So, if you’re someone that likes to go more natural, great! If you like bold colors and sparkly eyeliner, great! I hate when I see women put down other makeup looks because it doesn’t match their own. Get off your high horse lady. Personally, I have always loved a more natural look. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy doing glam every once in awhile, because I do! Actually, glam is my favorite makeup look to create. I just mean that I tend to lean more towards nude/warm colors and tones. I always joke that my ideal makeup inspiration is a greek goddess or the Kardashians.
I have a few favorite brow products that I use, but I’m going to be focusing on just one today. Like I said above, I tend to lean towards more natural makeup looks and this brow product gives you the natural looking brow that everyone craves.

Anastasia Brow Wiz Dupe
If you are a real penny pincher and still think 23 dollars is way too much to spend, I do have a dupe for you. The NYX brand sells a brow pencil very similar to the Brow Wiz. It has the same look and fine tip that the Brow Wiz has and only clocks in at 10 dollars. I did find it on Amazon though for even cheaper, 7.99! Hurry Hurry though, I don’t know how long that sale will be running. You can also find it on NYX or Ulta’s website. I have used both and I will say, I like the Brow Wiz a little better. The formula just goes on a little more natural than the NYX Micro Brow Pencil. The NYX Micro Brow Pencil does produce very good results though and I would urge anyone to try it.
Tips for Applying Your Brows
Listen up ladies, it took me years to get the perfect brow. This type of stuff takes time. So, if your’e going into the eyebrow game brand new, don’t get discouraged if you don’t get the results you wanted on the first try. Look up tutorials on YouTube on how to apply brows and try try again. Desi Perkins does a great tutorial on how to apply your brows and she uses the Anastasia Brow Wiz. I’ve been watching Desi’s videos for years and I completely trust all the work she does, not to mention she’s a world famous makeup artist. Check out her video and become a master at applying brows!
