I love Posh & Becks like everyone else but mon petites, the last thing I want to do is bend it like em! What I would love to emulate is the vintage brows of Brooke Shields. The full, bold brows are just so timeless and while I wasn't born with her mythical eyebrows I can achieve this look with the help of eyebrow maven Malynda ' Boom Boom' Vigliotti and her wallet friendly tools that transform my scant brows into Junoesque brows of perfection!

BROW IT INSTRUCTIONS
First things first: lets take a moment to look at that face... work it girl! Now let's get back to business- there are numerous brow products on the market, but Boom Boom Brow products cover (pun intended) nearly everything you could need for daily grooming. Without further ado here are the Brooke Brow tips:
Tip 1: Choose the Right Shade for Your Eyebrow Pencil
If your brows are fair, choose a powder two shades darker than your hair. (If you have dark hair, go two shades lighter. Boom Boom offers various shades to choose from) Hold your skin taut at the temple, and with the brush line the brows softly along the upper edge. Then line along the bottom edge. With feathery strokes, fill in between the two edges.
Tip 2: Blend the Color With a Brush
Like the title states - blend the color with the Boom Boom Brush! Run in short strokes over the entire length of the brows to soften and blend the color. Start at the inner corners, and brush up and out. Ladies it's all about the blend so be precise please!!! One more time for added emphasis !
Tip 3: Highlight Those Eyes Please
With the eye-brightening, Push-Up Brow Highlighting Pencil, $18 (which is double sided one side with sparkle the other without) glide the soft pencil on your browbone and again mon petites blend it in! It will leave you looking absolutely radiant. The color works for most skintones but in the summer months I usually skip this and use a concealer since I am already dark it can be a bit too ashy for me (hint Boom Boom hint!).
Tip 4: Gel It Complete!
Brush on the Boom Boom Brow-ssiere Brow Gel, $10 from the inner corners of the brows to the ends. This will keep errant , unruly hairs in place and prevent the powder from smudging. It won't leave your browns shiny either - very natural looking.
