There once was a time, not too long ago, where filling in my eyebrows never occurred to me as a thing people did. I would do my full face and leave my little face caterpillars naked. The day I started filling them in changed everything and I haven’t been able to turn back. I’ve flirted with a couple of different brow products here and there and have certain ones designated for different looks. Even though I have options, I’ve found myself going back to my first brow love, but coupling it with something that offers a little more hold.
Who’s surprised that I’ve gotten back into MAC Mystery? It was the first product I ever used to fill in my brows and it’s still just as good as it’s always been. It’s a neutral, deep, matte brown and I still love applying it with the MAC 266 angled brush. For a step-by-step on how I use this bad boy, I did a (still relevant) post on it way back when.
I think my brows are becoming a bit unruly. Every once in a while I’ll look in the mirror and see a rebellious hair or two going against the grain and I’ve felt like they need some extra taming. I dug out the NYX Brow Mascara in Black to whip my brows into shape. It holds everything in place and adds a cool, dark brown tint that fills in anything I might have missed. I used it all on its own in my brow routine done three ways for light makeup looks.
