YSL Couture Brow Wardrobe
HOW TO ACHIEVE FULL DEFINED BROWS
We may not all be blessed with natural full brows like Cara Delevingne, but luckily for those like me whose eyebrows are light and don’t grow in the areas they want them to grow, there are products out there like the new YSL Brow Wardrobe that will help us achieve natural looking full brows with little effort.
YSL got in touch with me a few weeks ago as you may have seen on Instagram stories when I opened the exciting package. They sent me four products from their couture brow range packaged in luxurious gold boxes. I’m certainly no brow artist and I don’t have the skills or patience to create statement looking brows like you can find in beauty tutorials. However, I’ve found the YSL brow range easy to use to create defined groomed brows – without any brow skills!
So, here’s a little something about my eyebrows, they are fair coloured and grow fast however not where I want them too and every six weeks I get them threaded and tinted – I’m due to get them done in a fortnight so they aren’t looking their best naturally at the moment so I was looking forward to trying out the new brow range by Yves Saint Laurent , to up my brow game!
YSL Couture Brow Marker - £21
The YSL Couture Brow Marker was the one I was looking forward to trying out the most as I had never used a marker on my brows before. It’s just like using a felt tip pen but with precise control as the angled marker helps to apply colour to the brows easily with minimal mistake. The marker creates full brows and frames the face to make defined statement eyebrows. I use the marker to outline first and then fill in, it can take a few attempts to get both brows equal but after a few goes you’ll soon get the hang of it.
YSL Couture Brow Palette - £35
Firstly, the YSL Couture Brow Palette comes in a stunning gold compact with a mirror, a firm angled brush and mini tweezers for plucking unwanted strays on the go – therefore makes the idea travel brow companion. There are three highly pigmented shades that can be mixed and blended to create sculpted and defined brows. The shades are long lasting and the angled brush does a great job at shaping and filling in the brows. Use lightly for a more natural brow or heavily for thick full brows.
YSL Couture Brow - £22
The entire range of YSL brow products are fantastic, but if I had to pick my favourite based on convenience and ease I would go with the YSL Couture Brow brush as it’s so easy to use and creates naturally defined brows on the go. I go over my brows length wise with the brush making sure every piece of brow hair is covered and then use the brush upwards to define the shape and then use the tip of the brush to accentuate the brow arch to frame the face.
It has a buildable gel formula with semi opaque pigments adapted to all brow hair colours and a 3-D gloss effect to give volume. The small shaped brush ensures that you get all brow hairs covered without making a mess (my previous gel brush was a nightmare for this as the brush was too big so I would always make a mess when I’m doing them in a rush). As the formula is buildable you can use it lightly to achieve natural looking brows or keep building to achieve a statement full brow.
YSL Dessin Des Sourcils - £21
The YSL Dessin Des Sourcils is made up of a velvety smooth formula which glides onto the brows effortlessly creating definition and the brush helps to keep them groomed and in shape. The brow pencil provides the right amount of wax to keep them in place and the brush combs through them effortlessly. If you want natural looking defined brows or statement brows the YSL Couture brow range has something for everyone.
