Brow Drama


Let’s start the New Year off with one of my favorite finds of 2014, Maybelline Brow Drama. Years ago, after seeing a photo of me without makeup, I vowed never to leave the house without my eyebrows filled in again. I became a passionate proponent of eyebrows, always on the hunt for the next best product.


Maybelline Brow Drama, $8

A properly shaped brow will change your life, or at least your face. Eyebrows frame the face, bringing out its natural structure. Eyebrows make eyes pop, check-bones enhanced, and the face looks instantly youthful. Well-defined eyebrows are like a mini face lift.

In this case, a face lift will cost under $10.

I’ve spent a few minutes on my brows every day over the past few years. If I’m with clients, or speaking in front of an audience I do a heavy brow. (I like Anastasia Eyebrow Duo or Makeup Forever Aqua Brow.) But that all seems like too much effort for daily life. If I did that for yoga pants days, I would look like a Kardashian.

That’s what makes Maybelline Brow Drama so fantastic. In 1-2 swipes brows are perfectly shaped and look naturally full. Easy peasy.

For best results, be sure your face is dry, especially your eyebrows before applying. Otherwise, it gets messy. Take a minute to pluck any stray hairs prior to applying. The only downside is if you have any unruly hairs, this will emphasize them.  Take the wand and lightly brush your brows in one movement toward your nose.  Next, pull the wand back toward your ears.  That’s usually enough but if you want a slightly darker tint, brush one more time toward your ears.

Like a slightly heavier brow? Add this on top of any powder/pencil you already use. It will help shape and set your brows beautifully.
