HD Brows Review/Swatches & A Quick Eyebrow Tutorial


Today I am reviewing the infamous brand HD Brows. I have been wanting a new eyebrow kit for my kit, as I work with many different models they all have different coloured hair, most of the kits available come in a set of one eyebrow shade, gel and eye colour. That is when I saw the HD Brows Professional Eyebrow kit. It is the perfect eyebrow kit every MUA needs with a variety of 6 different shades. You also get a brush with the kit of which one end is a slanted brush and the other end is a sponge to allow you create a smudged smokey eye look or even to diffuse your eyebrows once you have filled in your eyebrows .. bonus!The kit has an amazing sized mirror which is another feature I totally love, I think the most common shade is the brown (bottom row second one across) as this suits most people.

HD Brows Professional Eye & Brow Kit - £29.95

I wasn't aware HD Brows also do makeup (bronzer/blusher) so I was quite intruged and decided to try this out as well. I must say again I am really impressed, the blusher has a great soft texture and comes with a sponge, I personally wont use the sponge to apply blusher. Again this comes in alovely compact ehich is bigger than your average sized blusher compact and a decent sized mirror. The blusher is a gorgeous rose pink colour which would compliment all skin tones.

I have decided to do a eyebrow tutorial as I get a lot of requests for this from my readers. We all know eyebrows are a big thing these days and to be fair they can change the structure the frame of our facein an instant. I've been doing mine along before the hype since about 7-8 years ago as you can see I don't really have any or any definition they have got darker over the years but they are still very fine. There are lots of eyebrow products out there I prefer to brush them in as they look less fake than if you pencil them in when you have fine and unstructured eyebrows like mine.

1. Here you can see my bare eyebrows I usually do my eyebrows first but for the purpose of the tutorial I decided to do them last, you can see from the first picture and the last picture how much of an impact eyebrows have.

2. I start of with outlining my eyebrows, for this I use my HD Brows kit and a angled brush.

3. I then brush them in, I tend to use two shades the darkest at the bottom blended into a shade lighter towards the top of my brows.

4. I use a concealer above my eyebrows to make them look neater and more defined.

5. After blending the concealer in above my eyebrows I then add a highlighter under them (on my brow bone) this enhances the arch of my eyebrows even more.

It may look time consuming but once you get the hang of it its actually quite simple, if you want a more natural look go without outlining your eyebrows at the top just work your way up, it is also important when filling in your eyebrows you work with brush strokes in the direction you hair grows or you can end up with unevenly filled eyebrows. If you are just a beginner at filling in your eyebrows then try getting comfortable with a lighter shade and then fill in with a darker shade. I also do step 2 for when I am threading/plucking my eyebrows it helps me not to over thread/pluck and helps me achieve the shape I want a lot easier specially if I am wanting to change the shape of my brows.

  1. I have the HD Brows palette, which is probably a little too light in colour for my brows but I love it anyway. They do such amazing brow products.

    1. I think it's well worthit tbh the pan sizes are bigger than average eyeshadow pan sizes so you get lots of product, but they also do quads if you are wanting one for personal use x

  5. Thanks for the tutorial, I have their old quad eyebrow palette but the black shade shattered all over the other colours annoyingly. The palette you have is better as has two more than the other one, xoxo.
