Brow Wiz vs. Brow Definer: Why You Need Them Both

First thing’s first. Although you thought that {Anastasia Beverly Hills‘ Brow Wiz} was the only eyebrow pencil you could EVER want or need – you were, in fact, wrong.

But, that doesn’t mean you should cheat on it. It’s not time to resign your skinny stick of eyebrow magic to the make up morgue. You see, Anastasia Beverly Hills’ new {Brow Definer} may be a bit bigger BUT (as we all know), that doesn’t necessarily mean better. It’s what one does with it that counts… ahem.

You see, these arch rivals are anything but enemies. They’re actually perfect partners in the war against brow-tastrophes – complementing one another with their wicked sculpting skillz.

The ultimate outliner, {Brow Wiz} – as you’re all aware – has a distinctive waxy texture that is ideal for defining your brow shape. Using short, feathery strokes, sketch along the brow perimeter (use one of Anastasia Beverly Hills’ stencils to create the most flattering arch for your face).

Next, go in with {Brow Definer}. It has an innovative triangular nib, so you can achieve a multitude of different strokes (for different folks). Use the ‘tip’ to draw ultra-fine, hair-like lines; use the thin end of the wedge to create enviable ‘oomph’ then use the ‘fat bit’ (technical term) to fill in any gaps and create a smooth shape.

To finish, use the spooley brush to comb colour through and soften the overall effect – then set the hairs in place with {Clear Brow Gel}. Et voila! #eyebrowsonfleek #browgamestrong
