Cara Delevingne is iconically known for her eyebrows!! Thanks to her and the on-going trend, we’re all doing whatever we can to get those thick, luscious brows. A lot of us struggle with sparse areas or eyebrows that don’t grow back easily. It has been highly requested that I share with you guys what I do to make my eyebrows look full and lush. In a recent Get Ready With Me Video I asked people to comment below with what they use to grow their brows and I told them I would provide a blog post with my experience. I was floored by the engagement of my viewers! You guys shared so many amazing tips with me that I know my readers and followers will find such a benefit from. I can’t include all of the great advice that I found in the comments section, so please be sure to watch the video and read everything.
I’ve always had thin brows and I’ve always struggled with growing my brows. So, I have tried so many products to make my brows fuller. I’ve heard a lot of people suggest castor oil, but when I tried it it just didn’t work for me. I think it’s very messy and it gets all over the place. Plus, I just found it to be uncomfortable. That’s not to say it won’t work for you though! Coconut oil is the same thing- I have heard it works well but it is too messy for me.
I also tried Chella a while back, which was an effective product for sure. It will take about a month to see results; at least it did for me. If you have the patience, or aren’t looking for something that has to work instantaneously, then I would go with this.
For my brows, I’ve been using Latisse. I know it’s meant to be use for eyelashes, but it works great for me and I’m definitely satisfied with the results. The thing to keep in mind with Latisse is that you MUST use it consistently. If you falter from your routine for a little while, your eyebrows are just going to go right back to the condition they were in before. Latisse is a prescription product, so access to some people may be limited. I use it twice a day and try to use it as consistently as I can.
There are so many great products out there, it can be hard to choose. My best piece of advice once you’ve found the product that works for you is to make a commitment to yourself that you will continue to use it. Make it part of your skincare routine. That’s the only way to encourage growth that is going to last.
A lot of people also fill their eyebrows in to either darken up the color or make them appear stronger. There are pencils, gels, liners, powders – a sea of things you can use! Finding the perfect color for your brows can be a little bit of a science, similar to searching out a foundation. When you have a night off, try a couple of different shades and see what you feel like complements your face. If you’re a brunette, go about two shades lighter than you natural hair color; if you’re a blonde, go two shades darker. This is a common rule to follow if you want to most natural looking brows.
One great tip I got from Anita Warda, one of my lovely YouTube subscribers, is to avoid using a waxy pencil to fill in your brows. She found that it can clog hair pores, effecting the stimulation of growth. Girlfriend is so right! I recommend sticking to a powder filler, so you don’t have to worry about clogging your pores. Another subbie, Tracy Quinlan, said that she uses RapidLash Serum and it worked to help her eyebrows grow.
One product you might like to try – and it’s one that I have been eyeing lately – is Grandelash. I have heard that this product works wonders!! Maybe when I’m finished my current bottle of Latisse I’ll give it a whirl.
I would also love to hear your thoughts if you’ve tried any hair growth products! Make sure you leave yours tips in the comments section below. A huge thank you again to all of my subscribers and viewers on YouTube that took the time to share their best kept secrets!
