My Beauty Favorites — Week of October 5-11, 2015

We are already well into October, can you believe it?  It was 85 today, but I’m hoping it cools down soon and stays cool!

This week, I’m loving a long wearing brow pencil, a volume-building hair product, an ultra-moisturizing hand cream and a supplement that will help prevent sun damage in skin.

Leave a comment and let me know what you are loving now.  I am excited to hear!

Smashbox Brow Tech Matte Pencil

Smashbox Brow Tech Matte Pencil ($21 USD) –A brow pencil with an ultra-fine point that allows you to mimic hairs to extend your brows and fill in sparseness. Benefits are that it’s long wearing, non smudging, water resistant, sweat & humidity resistant.

Umbreen Sheikh  of Wink Brow Bar in NYC has shared her tips on shaping / perfecting your brows which can helpful when using the Smashbox items. They include not overdoing it even though bold brows are in.

What I think:  This is very easy to use.  I use feathery stroke.  The main thing I do is fill in the tail of my brow, and then use the spoolie brush to blend it in and make it look natural.
