How To Use Pictorial
I have terrible brows. They grow all over the place, but not in the gaps I want them too. Off late, I never knew what good brow wax and powders could do to me and obviously Lakme shoe polish black eyebrow pencils were the last thing I wanted to try. Then, I saw Deepika Padukone’s eyebrows and I wondered what art or technique goes behind it because it would be next to impossible to have the eyebrow hair right in the exact place you want them to arch or curve. Hence began my journey of getting better brows in the shape I want them to without waiting for the growth and something that would frame the face.
I bought this Inglot Brow Wax for Rs. 300 and they do have some other shades too. Check out the website to see what shade matches you best. I got this brown one, because black eyebrows can make you “Ramleela ready” so to say. I stick to brown wax and powders please 😛
I have tried transparent mascaras and even old toothbrushes and gels to hold my eye brows in place, but now it was time to add definition and not just the hold.
So, I know we need two things for that, basically the wax and the powder. And oh, yeah, we also need an angled brush, any size you are comfortable with getting to the eyebrows, it will do just fine. Vega has one which will be good for starters. The gel liner by Maybelline will also do fine if you want to try and the angled small brushes ELF gel liners provide will work too.
Next, you need a brow comb to ease out all the clumpy colour which might have got accumulated in the process and to distribute the colour of the powder equally. That’s what I do and you don’t need to necessarily do it too, and last but not the least, use a tissue paper to guard your cheeks against any fall out of the brown brow powder,
The Inglot brow wax came to me in a dilapidated condition. I suppose it melted on the way and the consistency and the texture I find a little too loose for me. When you compare the NYX transparent one, you can see how thick it is, but that too makes it difficult to use. So, I just wish the Inglot one was a little stiff so that it won’t feel like a gel you know.
I am very happy with the colour I got, it feels nice and gives some colour too. I just need to trace it and fill a brown color in the brow and comb out and I am done. Since it feels a little light, I found that it does hold the hair in place, but still could do a better job of the hold if it were thicker. Once the powder goes on, I am happy with the result and the hold and the color as well.
The brows feel set for 5 hours minimum, but please be careful not to use a wet wipe and remove it all off 😛
Last Word on Inglot Freedom System Brow Wax #573:
I am happy with the wax, wish it was a little thicker if not as thick as NYX. It is so worth trying if you don’t have a customised color of wax and powder. I am going to try the powder in a corresponding shade as well.
