Brow Tips & Tricks ( Because No One Wants To Look Constantly Surprised )

The Skinny Confidential talks New Year's Eve.

No one wants weird, wirey, way too thin brows AKA ‘tadpole brows.’ If you don’t know what I’m talking about watch The Bachelor ( half of the girls each season have them ).

To be real brows can change your WHOLE face. All in all I’m about good brows.

I know we’ve touched on the whole brow subject but a lot of you guys have asked for a full blown eyebrow tutorial.

So. Your wish is my command:

Products used:

travel brow kit

MAC’s brow powder for blondes ( use this one if you’re brunette )

brow makeup brush ( << SERIOUSLY a game CHANGER!! )

clear mascara

brow ‘brush’ ( << necessary, trust )

♡ My flannel can be found here

If you want to learn more about my makeup routine, check out The Skinny Confidential Book ( which also has A LOT of eyebrow info!! ).

  1. Great tips!! I always stand by the Anastasia products especially their brow gel! It holds everything in place like glue but it has a flexible feel to it!

  2. These videos are amazing and so well done! You sound like a legit makeup artist, and it was so funny hearing your actual voice instead of imagining it as I read your posts:)

    And to answer you question, I use Bobbi Brown´s “Slate”eyeshadow and fill in my brows. I have auburn-brownish hair and a fair complexion, so it´s the perfect color.

    Keep the videos coming:)


  3. Great tip on brushing upwards rather than down for the second half of the brow! I knew something was off with mine and now I know why it always made my eyes look more hooded than they already are!

  4. Love this! I used to always skip my brows but now I never do. Sounds superficial but I can’t even leave my house without doing my brows 🙂

  5. Love this tutorial! I’ve been using the great lash clear gel for awhile now on my brows and am glad to hear I’m not the only one! Question on brow shaping – do you wax, pluck or thread? Which one works best while trying to maintain the thicker brow look?

  6. Anastasia products are great for brows. I also overplucked, like Gwen Stefani and the rest of the celebs I blame for this horrible old school trend. Sob!

    1. You can try taking biotin to grow them and getting an eyebrow stencil kit so you can create faux thick eye brows while yours grow.

  7. Thanks for this tutorial! Can you tell me about the cosmetic mirror your’re using in this tutorial? That looks like something I’d really like to try.

  8. Hi Lauryn! You are so adorable. I absolutely LOVE your blog and your videos are so fun!! Do you have a recommendation for someone that does waxing/tinting in San Diego for brows?


  9. Hello,
