Mine happened circa 2014-2015, and when they happen, you gotta get them out of your system, like dating bad boys or wanting a pony or getting food poisoning. You just have to let it pass through you.
If you happen to be going through that era of your makeup journey right now, Benefit has three new brow kits you might like.
The Benefit Foolproof Brow Powder kits come in 1 Light, 3 Medium and 5 Deep. Each one has two shades — a lighter shade for the inner part of your brow and a darker shade for the outer tail — to get that bold ombre brow effect. They’re $24 each and available on counters right meow.
The kits come with an applicator with a pointy blending sponge on one end and a spoolie on the other. The powders are super soft, and the sponge picks up plenty of product, so you can get lots of all-day-long-lasting color up in your brows in less than a minute.
One of my brow powder pet peeves is when I can see dark dots of brow powder settling into the pores in the sparse spots in my brows, but that doesn’t happen when I use Foolproof.
When things start to go awry (it happens), and your brows get too bold, all you have to do is grab a clear brow gel. Benefit has one, and it’s the best one out there IMO (even better than the famed Anastasia brow gel). Just run that back and forth through your brows a few times to turn down the intensity, wait for it to dry, then fill in any remaining sparse spots.
