Sleek Brow Kit

I first used the Sleek Brow Kit in 'Dark' two weeks ago and was really impressed, so much so that it's now part of my regular makeup routine. It's great for filling in the brows and gives a really lovely, natural finish.

The kit comes with an angled brush to use with the pigmented wax, a blending brush to apply the setting powder and tweezers to pluck out any stray hairs. 


There isn't a huge difference. I've just lengthened it a little and tidied it up. Luckily, I don't have really sparse eyebrows so I don't have to spend ages on them. Here's what I do:


1. I use an eyebrow brush in gentle upward, diagonal motions to neaten the hairs;
2. With an eyebrow pencil, I give them shape, then use the pigmented wax to soften the line;
3. I fill in my brows using the setting powder;
4. I use a spool brush to fade the beginning of the brows to prevent them from looking harsh and blocky. This gives a more natural look;
5. Finally, I neaten it all up and give them added definition by applying a little bit of concealer using an angled brush. 

I think it's a handy little kit. It's also available in 'Light' which would suit blondes ('Dark' is better suited to brunettes and darker hair shades). The kit retails for £7.99 and can be purchased from www.sleekmakeup.com and Superdrug

    1. Hi Cassie! Yeah, I know that feeling of not being too sure whether to go ahead with a makeup purchase. Its main purpose for me is filling in the brows- it does a great job at that. I still use an eyebrow pencil to shape my eyebrows because I'm not that keen on exclusively using the wax. I'd say it's not vital to have- I mean, a dark eyeshadow will do the trick for filling in the brows- but it's handy and I'd recommend it.

  12. I've been looking to buy this but can't get a hold of it anywhere. It is sold out on the site and superdrug doesn't have it.
