The Eyebrows On Fleek thing doesn't really work with bangs.

Ever since I've been wearing these here bangs I've had this issue of not knowing what the hell to do with my eyebrows. And I kind of love my eyebrows. It's a shame to cover them up, you know?
Also, because I'm kind of lazy and tend to psych myself out, I don't love love trimming my bangs. I often leave them a little bit (ok, a lot a bit) too long before trimming them. And when my bangs are just on the other side of being too long, you can't even see my brows.
So, what's the problem?
Um, it's when you can see my brows. It's maybe only 50% of the time but those couple of weeks you can see them, I want to FLAUNT them. And my brows, as much as I love them, they aren't perfect. So I kind of always need to use some sort of eyebrow product to make them even.
This is where the *Jane Iredale Retractable Brow Pencil (in Dark Brown) comes in.
I mentioned this in my favorites of November because it's just that good, but you need a little more information.
So, starting off, this pencil has the tiniest nib of any eyebrow product I've ever used. Seriously. And that miniscule nib is what makes it possible to get super natural looking brows. I've been a Glossier Boy Brow fan, and an Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil fan, and a *Sigma Brow Powder fan and none of these give me the same natural brow look quite as well as this one. You can read about boy brow here, because it's a very close second to this eyebrow pencil.
That mini nib makes it super easy to draw in little, tiny, individual eyebrow hairs. And it may seem like a pain to do, but really it's not that bad. I just fill in the front part of both my brows with thin little strokes and it makes all the difference in the world. Plus the nib is on the hard side, this makes it easier to get the realistic brow hair look because you can't accidently press too hard and get a really thick line.
Real talk, I've never been an instagram brow kind of gal. It just looks so totally off with the makeup that I wear. Add in the bangs and using a brow powder (which gives a thicker, less hair-like result), and brow gel (for darker, slightly thicker brows) looked even more fake.
I'm now a *Jane Iredale Retractable Brow Pencil convert. Sure, it takes me a minute longer than swiping through some boy brow, but the results are that much better that it's so worth it.
What eyebrow makeup do you use?
