How to choose the right brow product

Brows are all the rage these days! Everywhere you look, people are obsessed with having PERFECT brows. However, no two eyebrows are the same which also means your brows may not look like the ones you see on Pinterest. But don’t worry –  that doesn’t mean you can’t have your own version of perfect brows!!

Of course, you should start with shaped, groomed brows (we’d recommend seeing an aesthetician for this). Then comes time to select a brow product and you realize there’s a ton of different ones to choose from! There’s brow pencils, pens, powders, pomades AND mousses… whoa. Where do you even start? Well, it comes down to personal preference and what kind of brow you have. Take a look:

Brow Pencils/Pens

Brow pencils and brow pens work great for defining your eyebrows naturally or filling in sparse areas.  We’d recommend the Senna Sketch-A-Brow Pencil, or Senna Powder Brow Styling Pencil

Brow Mousses

If your eyebrows tend to be a little “unruly” and need just a little bit of color, then a brow mousse would be perfect for you! We love the Blinc Brow Mousse.

3 Easy Steps to Curling Eyelashes

Curling Your Eyelashes

Many of us curl our lashes either because we’ve simply been told to do so or it’s what we’ve always done. But why do we really? What are the benefits? Curling your eyelashes opens up the eyes and makes them appear larger! Whether your lashes are naturally straight or have flattened out over time, curling your eyelashes can really help your eyes stand out. We are bringing to you an easy step-by-step process to curling eyelashes with a few extra tips and tidbits thrown in!

Choosing an eyelash curler

Selecting a lash curler is important because it needs to fit your eye shape and lash curlers are made quite different! We recommend a curler with a rounded pad vs. a flat pad. Over time the rounded pads are more gentle on your lashes and they are less likely to split like the flat ones, which can break your lashes off – eek!

It seems like the lash curler that always gets recommended is the one made by Shu Uemura. This lash curler works great on Asian women and women with larger eyes, however it does not fit as well for Caucasian eye shapes! The Make-up Studio recommends the Japonesque Power Curl Eyelash Curler which is a more universal one. We love that it opens up wide to fit your lashes into! Spend the time and try different brands to see which one works for you.

Japonesque Power Curl Eyelash Curler

Step One:

Position lash curler so that you are close to the base of the lashes and gently squeeze. Then release, move out half way and gently squeeze again. The point is to achieve a natural curl instead of a bent lash such as the results you would get with a flat pad lash curler.

Step Two:
Apply mascara and separate lashes using a small metal lash comb.

Finish with Blinc’s Heated Lash Curler to lift the outside lashes and any that stick straight down.

 

 

 

 

 

NOTE: The heated lash curlers are more of a finishing tool and produce the best results when used in conjunction with a traditional eyelash curler!
