hi guys welcome back let me first start by apologizing for being gone for a little while I gave birth to my second baby girl on February 11th and I'm happy to say that she is a healthy beautiful baby but needless to say I've been very occupied with that I did want to get on though and do a quick video on my eyebrow routine sort of a tutorial and a review in one I asked in one of my last videos if you wanted to see an eyebrow
00:32
tutorial using both the elf eyebrow kit and the Tarte Amazonian clay brow mousse these are two products that I've been loving and pretty much the only main products that I use on my brows from day to day so a lot of you said yes and that is what I'm gonna do today now as you can see these are my eye brows naturally what I normally do is get them threaded every six to eight weeks just to clean up and maintain their shape and then the
01:02
rest of the time I just maintain them at home by tweezing and trimming them a little and I don't do anything fancy I mean I just have a regular Revlon tweezer that I've had for many years and I just basically stick to the area below the arch and clean up any stray hairs here and a little bit up top and then I would say probably like every two weeks I go in and just trim a little bit here because they do tend to get a lot Basheer in this area now my natural
01:33
eyebrows are very thick this is their natural arch what I do when I get them threaded is I just have her basically thin them out a little bit in this area but I maintain their natural shape and I find that for most people if you stick pretty close to your natural shape it is gonna be the most flattering on your face because there's a reason that they are that way on your face and it's also a lot lower maintenance because then you don't have to worry as much about maintaining the shape as frequently so
02:04
now to begin the eyebrow tutorial a little bit about each product first I have the elf eyebrow kit which I discovered about two months ago and fell in love with immediately I got it in two shades I have both medium and dark and I will tell you that for me they both work quite well though the dark is probably a little bit better match the only difference that I can really tell in the two shades comes down to the brow gel or
02:34
brow wax that you see on the right hand side in the dark shade which is this one it's just a slightly darker wax and the medium shade as you can tell is just a little bit lighter but other than that the brow powders pretty much look identical so if you're debating between which shade to get and you're basically like a really dark blond to medium brunette then I would say go with the medium and if you're a darker brown to black hair then I would go with the dark I mean there's not a major difference
03:05
and a lot of it comes down also to how much product and how much pressure you apply though there are two more shades in the elf eyebrow kit there is a light shade and an a shade both of those would work better for lighter to medium blondes and fair complexions leaves retail for three dollars and they can be found on eyes lips face calm or I've seen them at Target and some other retailers like Walmart so they're pretty easy to find the price is unbeatable especially for the quality of these
03:36
products now the second product I have here is the Tarte Amazonian clay waterproof brow mousse and I have mine in the color riche brown which I believe is the darkest shade and it comes with 3.4 grams and when you purchase it it also comes with this dual ended eyebrow brush and spoolie which I really love I think this is a great quality brush set that you're getting with this product but these two together retail for $28 so
04:06
there is a huge difference between the Tarte and the elf in terms of price I would have to say though that they both perform fairly similarly from what I've gathered and using them so if you're looking to save some money the eyebrow kit from health is definitely the way to go I wanted to try something new and I love tart as a brand they're brand that focuses on natural good ingredients for your skin and the quality of their products for me have always been really great so I think that if you're looking to try something
04:37
on the higher end or you're willing to shell out the $28 this is definitely one of the higher-end products that I would recommend the tarte brow mousse comes in three shades they have a taupe which works for lighter brunettes two blondes they have a medium brown which would cover the middle range of hair colors and skin colors and then the third shade which is the one I have is rich Brown which definitely would work better for darker brown to black hair so the main reason I thought that these two would be
05:08
comparable for a review is because they both have a bit of a waxy or gel like texture to them that helps to hold your hairs in place without having to use a brow gel while depositing pigment so I think they both accomplished that I think that the shade ranges are pretty similar and the big difference comes down to price and I wanted to give you an alternative from the drugstore that works just as well as one of my favorite high-end products so let's go ahead and get started I'm gonna use the elf
05:40
eyebrow kit on my right brow and then I'll do the tarte on my left elf eyebrow kit i forgot to show you does come with this little dual ended brush as well although this one is definitely cheaper quality it has an angled brush which is pretty decent for a drugstore brush this other side i find to be pretty useless for me it's just like a fluffy brush that you would use for eyeshadow application I don't normally gravitate towards this brush when I'm at home for day-to-day use but I think it's a good enough brush that if you are traveling
06:12
or if you want to just throw this kit into your back you don't need to bring another with you I think this would do enough of a job so the way I use the eyebrow kit is I will just take a angel' brow brush this one is bite Anastasia and I'm gonna go into the colored wax product and I just basically take my brush in here and grab a decent amount of it and I'm just gonna start to fill in the sparse areas of my brows and I'm doing this very
06:44
light handed I'm not putting a lot of pressure down because the more pressure you applied the more pigment you're going to deposit and the darker your brow is going to look and as you might have noticed from some of my past videos I do prefer on me personally a much more natural looking brow I think when you have really dark hair like mine it actually works in your favor to go with a more natural looking brow and even a shade or two lighter than your natural hair color so that they're not competing with each other so I have a lot of sparse areas right in this section of my
07:15
brow and that's where I'm just gently filling them in and then in terms of the shape when it comes to the shape I focus on the top part of my brows for defining it while staying within my natural brow hairs and then I just extended the slightest bit at the tip and then come back in and fill in any other sparse areas so the nice thing about this brow wax is
07:49
it does have some tackiness to it so when you come back into the kit to grab your brow powder which I just use the same brush with the wax on it it's going to adhere to your brows a lot more easily and it just basically works to help darken them a little more fill in any more sparseness that you might have and the combination of the two products I find for my brows is enough to hold them in place this wax has enough tackiness for my eyebrows that I don't feel like I need
08:20
to use a brow gel now if you have really curly hairs on your brows or just really unruly hair you may still need to come in with a brow gel to set them in place so once I'm done filling them in all I do is take a spoolie and one recommendation I have this is just off of an old mascara I think this was like a wet and wild mascara that I never used and all I do is take these schoolies off mascaras that either I'm done with or
08:51
that I didn't like wash them off really well with soap and water and then they can become your brow or eyelash bullies and that way you don't have to go and buy extra so I take it and I just brush it through the hairs and this is going to distribute the product a little bit more evenly make it look a little bit more airbrushed and natural and it also helps me see the shape and see if I need to come back in and adjust anything so that is pretty much it with the elf eyebrow kit on the right side and this is how it compares to the side that has
09:23
no product so now I'm going to go ahead and do the left side with the Tarte brow mousse and I'm gonna use the brush and spoolie that came with that now this product is just a little bit drier in terms of the wax or gel than the elf eyebrow kit but I find that it works just as well now they do say that this is waterproof I can't really speak to that because I've never worn it in an environment such as a swimming pool where I could really test it out but what I will say is that I find both of these products last me all day without any issue if you
09:54
have really oily skin the Tarte one is probably good hold up a little better than the elf studio eyebrow kit but if you have normal to dry skin or combination even where this area of your face is not really oily then I think you could go with either one so I'm gonna take the angle brush same thing just pick up some product on here pick up a decent amount and then just gently start filling in the area and this product is even a little lower maintenance than the elf
10:26
because there's only one product to go in and use and it does pretty much the same thing as the elf product so that's another thing to keep in mind if you need something really low maintenance and this would beat health a little bit I find this one is just a slightly darker and pigment and so I really have to be light-handed when I'm trying to keep my brows looking natural and again I focus on defining the top portion of
10:57
my brows rather than the bottom portion so as you can tell for it go ahead and brush and blend this side out this brow mousse is definitely a little darker in pigmentation on my brows than the elf and so I really do have to work on blending this one out a little bit more I also prefer this product when I'm doing a more smoky or dramatic eye because then I can afford to go with a little bit more defined brow but I do think that this can still be worn day to
11:28
day you just have to be really light handed with it and I am just gonna take my spoolie and blend it out so that is the other side it is still even after I blended it out a little bit darker but I don't think it's a major difference that you can't go out in public with these two brows being different products other than that though I think that these are both equally great products at the end of the day it comes down to how much money you want to spend and also looking at the color range and finding the best match for you the elf eyebrow kit has a
12:00
few more options in it the tarte one obviously only has three options but i do find that the colors tend to be a lot more universally flattering even though they only three shades if I had to recommend one to just the everyday consumer especially if you're starting out with the brow products go ahead and try out the elf eyebrow kit because you're not investing a lot of money in it I think the quality is still there it's a great kit and you have pretty much everything you need if you're traveling it's nice and sleek so
12:30
hopefully you found this tutorial helpful and the reviews helpful if you have any questions about either of these two products or any other questions about how I fill my brows in and what I do on a regular basis feel free to let me know in the comments section thank you so much for watching thank you for your patience I promise if you bear with me in a few more weeks I will come back to doing regular videos and I am in the meantime going to try to put up a video as often as I can hopefully once a week but probably in
13:01
about a month I'll go back to my normal routine have a good rest of your day take care and I will talk to you soon bye bye
