As you’ll know if you keep up with my blog regularly, I recently took the plunge and had my eyebrows tattooed by the fabulous Sarah Colton (you can read this post here). I explained to Sarah how I wanted to have a really natural look, but with careful definition to help to frame my face. Sarah worked her magic and gave me the brow shape that I’d been lusting after for years and I absolutely love them! I have a beautifully defined look that is so natural that it’s hard to tell that I’ve had any help in the brow department whatsoever.
Just recently, I was introduced to the Professional Eye & Brow Palette* by HD Brows. The palette, which retails at £29.95, features all six shades from the best-selling HD Brows Eye & Brow Palettes that are all long lasting and anti-smudge and will also stay fresh for up to 24 hours. Perfect for work or special evenings out!
I was really keen to try out the palette and see what strong, defined looks I could create with my new brows.
First of all, the palette is so sleek that it’s easy to carry around in my makeup bag or even in my kit, and the compact mirror makes it easy for touch-ups or application en-route. I also love that the palette features a double-ended brush – an angled brow brush on one end, with a dome sponge on the other for precise application and blending.
The first thing I noticed is that the colours are extremely highly pigmented which means a little goes a long way, and that there’s a great colour payoff. The six colours that the palette features are; Ash Blonde, Warm Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Brown, Rich Brown and Carbon. The two colours that I used were Ash Blonde for the beginning of the brow blended out into Rich Brown at the tail of the brow. I found that these two colours were perfect for my colouring and with the variety available in the palette, I’m sure that anybody could find a colour to suit them.
I’ve added a few images below to show you the difference between my natural hairstroke tattooed brow compared to the HD Brows powdered brow.
As you can see from the images above, it’s so easy to create a much different look using the HD Professional Palette. I love both of the looks and it’s nice to be able to be so flexible in which way I choose to make up my brows!
For anybody who likes to experiment with their brows or prefers a more defined look, I’d really recommend the HD Pro Palette. If you’d like to take a look at the palette in more detail, you can view it on the HD Brows website here.
