One of the few blessings of this pandemic was the ability to work from home for the past year, which also means that I haven’t been really wearing makeup. Sometimes I’ll apply foundation, concealer, and mascara, but mostly I’ll just fill in my eyebrows, throw on some lip gloss, and nothing else. I like this routine because it’s minimalist, and my skin is clearing up really well, seemingly due to its ability to breathe without makeup. I thought my eyebrows would have grown back during the pandemic but that hasn’t happened. I have made peace long ago with the fact that I am a “little eyebrow” person. We’re not all blessed with big beautiful brows! Thankfully there are some great products on the market to create a nice-looking, affordable eyebrow routine for thin brows.
My all-time favorite product to enhance these little brows is Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, which costs $21. I use that as the base and then I fill in the remaining sparse areas with the Mac Eyebrow Styler Pencil, which costs $19. Then I clean things up with a highlighter pencil. When 2020 wrecked my finances, I had to cut back on the luxury brands and I began exploring more affordable, but still quality, products. I tested out a few items with varying results, and eventually landed on some solid eyebrow products under $10 each. I’ll definitely be going back to using ABH’s brow pomade when I can afford it, and continue exploring different products too. There are innovations in beauty products all the time, and I know I’m going to want to try new things that I haven’t before.
