Sleek Makeup has created the perfect compact to answer the cries of many an unruly brow. Bold, furry brows are big this season and impeccably defined brows are crowning flawless faces everywhere down the AW11 catwalks. I love statement brows, I think they look fabulous and frame the eye beautifully, but sadly due to a spell of over-exuberant plucking, circa 2001, I have been left with quite sparse brows. I usually use mac eyebrow pencil in spiked and then comb them through with mac eyebrow gel, but was keen to give this new brow kit a go.
As you lift the lid you are greeted by a shaping wax and setting powder, accompanied by a pair of diddy mini tweezers, an angle brush and a blending brush. The kit comes in two shades; light and dark. I was sent the light one to trial, and it suited my eyebrows excellently as you can see below.
To achieve my defined brows:
1/ Tidy up the brows and tweezer any loose hairs away. Comb them through with a brow brush to prep them for application.
2/ Apply the shaping wax with the angled brush. This brush is great in creating the sharp, clean edges to your brow. Run the brush through your brow, following its natural shape.
3/ Apply the setting powder with the blending brush, sweeping through your eyebrow and filling in any gaps. This will help create a fuller, shapely brow.
I can’t really say anything bad about this product; it does exactly what it sets out to do and is so easy to use with the brushes included. I love that everything you need is in one place and it is a definite makeup bag essential.
Sleek Makeup launch their brow kit (£7.99) on 26th October 2011 and it will be available online and in Superdrug stores.
