That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 7.16.18
Question of the Week: Spill it, what products do you use on your eyebrows?
Answer: Oh, my eyebrows are very high maintenance. I was hoping after having them microbladed, they could be product-free. But somehow I only fuss over them more!
I use two eye pencils, Kevyn Aucoin The Precise Brow Pencil ($25) in Ash Blonde and Brunette. The brunette shade fills in any gaps in the middle of the brows, then the blonde shade gets used on the edges. The tip is as small and thin as a single brow hair. And the formula is super sturdy.
Then, I use Hourglass Arch Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel ($28) in Blonde to brush through the brows. As the name suggests, it has fine fibers in it that cling to hair and bulk it up. It really does add volume to puny brows. Plus, the brush is dual-sided so you can choose how much gel you want to use.
When are thin brows going to come back in fashion? LOL.

EauMG is Currently Craving: I thought I was a strong woman that could avoid buying another highlighting palette this year. Well, I’m not. Who can resist the beauty of Pat McGrath Labs Sublime Skinlighting Trio?! It’s absolutely stunning.
