Then you are living under a rock if you haven’t heard about the brow product that has gained worldwide popularity, the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade.

I have been lusting over the Anastasia Beverly Hills products for a long time now, but unfortunately they aren’t available here in Ireland. Once I got to NYC however, I made straight for Sephora and picked up the products I’ve had my eye on for a while now.

Two of the products I picked up were brow related:

1. The DipBrow Pomade

2. The Brow Duality ( like a concealer pencil that cleans up the brow after you use the Pomade)

 If I had the choice to buy just one… the Anastasia’s DipBrow Pomade would be it! This brow must-have is the easy-to-use, long-lasting answer to eyebrow perfection, whatever shape your brows are in, if you’ll excuse the pun! 😉

This tinted, creamy formula is waterproof, smudge-proof and ideal for creating defined, natural-looking brows that will last ages!The gel-mousse glides on seamlessly and adheres to each individual hair, so the final result is perfectly precise brows, which will stay put!

The colour I opted for was Dark Brown… I don’t like my brows being too dark or standing out too much, so I preferred this colour, which is a natural ashy brown shade.

With Dipbrow, I find my brows are sculpted better and have a much more defined looking shape, that takes way less time to achieve than when using a powder.

It’s a win/win for me!

So how do I apply it? I will do a YouTube video on my channel using both products soon, but for now here is a rough guide.

Dipping the bottom of my brow brush into the pot, I scoop out a tiny tiny piece and pop it on the inside of the lid. Taking my CrownBrush IB113 brush, I take a nice amount of product onto the brush and carve out the middle to end tail of my brow and then I do the same on top.

Taking a bit more product on my brush, I then gently run through my brows, filling them in with small feather like strokes. Now the part you need to pay most attention to is the beginning of your brow. After I have filled in my brow, I use whatever gel is left on the brush and then I apply it gently to the start of my brow.

The key to nice brows is light at the start and heavier from the middle to end. Every single time I apply the dipbrow, I take my CrownBrush C162 brow brush and lightly brush through my brows… this takes any heavy residue off and leaves your brows looking natural, defined and arched.

After I have filled in my brows, I take the Brow Duality and go along the brow bone and clean it up to make my brow shape as prominent as possible.
