Did you know that the shape of your eyebrows can change the way your face looks? They are that important, trust me!
I’ve never been a big fan of pencil defined eyebrows on myself, so for me, tweezing always did the trick to give a clean and classical frame to my eyes… or so I thought. A few days ago I went to a Benefit counter and the lady serving me introduced me to something that completely changed the way I felt about filing, shaping and defining my eyebrows.
The product is called Benefit Brow Zings and it’s a brow shaping kit that comes with a little angle brush and pigmented wax for shaping your eyebrows, a small blending brush and powder to set everything in place, and the cuttest pair of tweezers!
I was absolutely blown away with the result and was immediately convinced to get the Brow Zings kit. The final look is so natural and flattering, and it doesn’t make you look as if your little sister drew your eyebrows with a crayon.
The kit comes with a leaflet taking you through all the steps, so it’s pointless describing them here. Instead, I’ll share with you some handy tips that are not on the leaflet and will made a big difference.
Before starting you might want to use a little eyebrow comb to tidy your brows in case you have messy eyebrows like me. Remember to brush the hairs upwards otherwise you’ll end up with a shape that makes you look tired and sad; we don’t want that! :)
Try to follow the natural line of your eyebrows as much as possible rather than drawing a line where there are no hairs and filling it with powder; this will give you a more natural look.
If your eyebrows are not even, you can use the wax and the angle brush to make them look symmetrical or even slightly increase the arch in the middle, if you like arched eyebrows.
When you’re done with the wax and the powder, use the other side of the comb to brush off the excess and to make them look more natural and blended with your natural hairs. This was recommended by the makeup artist that did my eyebrows at the Benefit counter and I thought it made a crucial difference!

I strongly recommend this product! If you’ve never filled your eyebrows, either because you think they look fine the way they are or because you think it looks fake and weird, trust me, this is exactly what you need. I think my eyebrows look ok naturally, but now they look amazing!
