Tuesday's Tip: Unruly Brows

 Hey guys!

So today I am going to start a new series of posts called 'Tuesday's Tip'. I know quite a few people do 'Tutorial Tuesday' but I thought I'd try something different instead! So today's Tuesday Tip is about, as you may have guessed, eyebrows. Eyebrows, eyebrows, eyebrows. I am currently at war with my eyebrows because they have almost no shape and are sparse and are basically just bleugh (very technical describing word there). They are also so uneven, I know so many people say that they are sisters and not twins, but mine are barely like third cousins! I do fill in my brows, and I have done a post on it here, in that post i used a brow gel to set my brows but I find during the day my eyebrows move about and flick up at the ends and just don't stay in shape at all! I have tried various cheaper brow gels and none of them do it for me! I know Illamasqua do an amazing one that apparently keeps them in place like no other, but i can't justify spending that much money on a brow gel when i know something basically for FREE could do pretty much the same job!

So what have I been using?!


spoolie brush | hairspray

Yes, it's just hairspray and a spoolie (not the actual pencil, i just don't own any other spoolie brushes haha) If you think I'm totally weird and have completely lost it, bear with me as I explain what to do!

1. Fill in your brows as normal (unless you have amazing eyebrows then i envy you so much!)
2. Spray the hairspray onto the spoolie
3. Comb through your brows and set them to how you want them!

It really is that easy, and it's so effective! Many of you may have already heard of this method or something similar but I just thought I'd share this with you. I know some people liked to use hairspray all over their face to set their make up instead of buying a setting spray, however I'm not really a fan of doing that because it makes my face feel tight and weird, but this doesn't! If you use hairspray on your hair, then this method is pretty much completely free because you're using a product that you've already got! and if you do fill in your brow, many eye brow pencils have spoolies on the end so you can just use one of those, like I did! This tip really works, and makes my eyebrow pencil or powder last all day, and they don't flick up at the ends, and make me feel as though I am one step closer to having Cara Delevingne's brows (I wish!!)

Thank you for reading, if you try out this tip let me know if it works for you!
