Anastasia Brow Express

You're eyebrows help give shape and definition to your face. Well groomed eyebrows give you a move put together look. I keep my eye brows shaped, my problem is that they're not very defined. I usually use an eye brow pencil to fill them in but recently I decided to take a bit further and I bought the Anastasia Brow Express at Sephora ($38). The kit looks like a little book and inside it comes with a brow brush, 4 eyebrow stencils, eyebrow wax, a highlighter, & 2 brown colors.
To use the kit you have to first choose a stencil that best fits your eyebrow and has as much of your natural brows within the cutout. Holding the stencil to your face can be a bit awkward. The best way I found to do it was to form a V with my index & middle finger and using them to hold either side of the stencil. Then you have to apply the brow powder using the eyebrow brush. There's 2 shades of power to use. One darker and the other lighter. Pick the one that is closest to you natural color or blend the two shades. Next, take the stencil and remove any hair that is outside of the powder area. Follow by applying the wax cream to keep your eyes brows in shape. Lastly, apply the highlighter along the brow bone underneath your eyebrows. You don't have to the highlighter given. You can use your own that best works with your makeup. And there you have it.
FYI: Other company's have their own version of this kit (powder, stencils, wax, brush,) including Too Face for $35 & Tart for $18. The sole reason I chose Anastasia is because she is know for shaping great eyebrows. You can also buy her products separately if you don't want the kit. Other lines also have similar products sold separately.

Pros: Easy to use and the products work
Cons: The stencil is awkward to hold on your face while you apply the powder
Buy Again: Maybe
Price: $$$$$
