I swear, EVERY morning I am running late. I keep trying to simplify my makeup routine more and more to make it easier to get to work on time. My least favorite part to do are eyes – if you can’t do eye makeup right, I think you shouldn’t do it at all. It requires a steady hand and patience, neither of which are in typically available for me in the mornings.
I have eliminated any sort of complicated eyeshadow. I’m just doing a wash of a base color, usually MAC Paint Pot in Layin’ Low or Painterly, a thicker line of gel pencil eyeliner (I am really like the Shea Moisture Ultra Smooth Long Wear Eye Pencil these days), a quick squeeze from my eyelash curler then a very quick coat of mascara. One area where I never skimp, though, is brows. I think most people neglect this part of their face, but 20 seconds can really change your look, and Paula’s Choice Brow Defining Cream Duo ($21) is terrific.
Paula’s Choice is one of my favorite go-to lines for skin care, but this line also has some really exceptional cosmetic products. I always have a Brow Defining Cream Duo on hand and I use it every single day. It is so easy to use. Unlike many of the brushes that come inside compacts, the one in this brow duo is excellent. I use the spoolie end to brush my brows up first, then I use the angled brush side and dip it in each of the two colors of brow cream to make a color a few shades lighter than my natural brow color. Then, I quickly tap the cream onto my brows, and finish with a quick sweep of the spoolie.
I prefer a cream brow product to powder for two reasons. First, the cream doesn’t smudge like powder. Second, a cream product holds my brows in place. I love the two shades in the Brow Defining Cream Duo – I can use just one or mix them together. Unless your hair is very fair or very dark, these two shades will work for you. Once you use this product a few times and get the hang of it, you will be astounded at the difference groomed brows make, and you will be amazed at how quickly you can use this.
Whether you like to take your time with your makeup or you are always in a hurry, this is a brow product that you will absolutely swear by. Another bonus – all Paula’s Choice products are 100% fragrance free, clinically proven to be non-irritating, and never tested on animals. – Lisa
