A few years ago, back when I still wrote for Babble (I stopped because with baby #2 the deadlines were just too stressful), I wrote an article about the small makeup steps that can make a big difference in your look. These are the steps that we skip because they aren’t a big deal, or we didn’t even know that was a thing. Step #2 was concealing above and below your brows. Yes, that’s a thing. And it really does make a big difference!
For years, I’ve been using Too Faced’s Instant Attitude Brow Lift (at HSN or Amazon) for this crucial, 30 second makeup step. I draw a line under and over each of my brows, then quickly blend with a fingertip. It makes my brows look much better. They don’t look highlighted, but somehow it makes them stand out a bit more, look more professional and cleaned up.

Unfortunately, the Too Faced pencil I use is hard to find now (I actually think it’s been discontinued and places are just selling out their stock). So, when this similar product showed up at my doorstep, I was excited to try it out! It’s basically a neutral concealer in a stick form. It is very similar to the Too Faced, though it goes on looking more pigmented at first, it blends a bit more with my finger, so the look afterwards is basically identical.
This is going to be a new staple product for me! Do you highlight your brow? What are you using?
