Top 5 Brow Grooming Tips from the #AskBenefit Twitter Chat

image

Maintaining your brows can be a handful. Thankfully Jared Bailey, the brow wizard at Benefit, was kind enough to share his beauty expertise with us yesterday in a fun and informative Twitter chat. He schooled us on everything from bleaching to over-plucking, and now our notebooks overflow with new tricks—we’re Benebabes for life. Here are our top five most helpful tips gleaned from yesterdays chat: 

1. “Pencil is going to be for definition, gel is to tame.”

2. When bleaching your brows, “Be careful! Bleaching around your eyes can be dangerous. Consult a brow artist in person.”

3. When trimming your brows, “Proceed with extreme caution. The key is to brush them up and trim them like a bonsai tree: very gently.”

4. “Work your natural arch! Since everyone’s brows are different, cookie-cutter styles and stencils simply won’t do.”

5. Over-plucked? “Visit a Brow Bar here for brow mapping. For a quick fix, sweep your bangs to the side!”

Benefit’s Gimme Brow: A gif Tutorial

While we adore video tutorials, sometimes we need a quick step-by-step that we can move through at our own pace. Enter: gif tutorials. Like videos, they make it easy for us to imitate the motions, but we don’t have to press pause every time we need to take a second look. Plus, they’re pretty fun to watch.

When it comes to our daily beauty routines, we often overlook our eyebrows. We’re so busy evening out our tinted moisturizer and applying that extra swipe of lipgloss we usually forget that one of the most important final touches is filling in our brows.

Luckily, our friends over at Benefit Cosmetics have got us covered with their life-changing new product, Gimme Brow. The innovative fiber-gel formula adheres to skin and hair creating eyebrows where there were none before. Best of all, it blends easily and is a cinch to use thanks to its precision applicator brush. To prove just how genius this product is, we asked our editorial intern Ashley to transform her arches before your eyes with just a few swipes of this (magical?) wand. image
