Lethal Weapon: High Definition Browtec Pencil

My High Definition Browtec pencil is hands down my favourite brow pencil. It is one of the best weapons in my makeup kit and it has yet to let me down. If my house was on fire, it’s definitely one of the items I’d be trying to grab. That’s if they haven’t already been singed off mid-fire, because, then I’m fucked. I’d be a solid 2 without my brows.

The Browtec pencil is available in 3 colours, so it will suit a wide range of brows whether you are fair, dark, alabaster or full blown Twilight.  I use the Vamp pencil despite it being for darker hair, I like my brows dark, like my soul.

The pencil is slim,(cue frantic searching in makeup bag and calls of S.O.S), and has a retractable twist-up mechanism that is thinner and firmer than ever, delivering precise application every time. The firm texture makes this brow pencil easy to control and apply, ensuring lines are clean, accurate and not wonky!

It’s perfect for recreating super-fine hair strokes, so it stops you from drawing your brows on too heavy. It also has a spoolie to brush your brows in to perfect shape, this is also great for anyone with false eyelashes as you can use it to brush those through too.

With excellent colour coverage, the Browtec has a non-oily formula and contains a blend of waxes so application is easy and coverage is long lasting. I have used this on thinner brows to create a fuller look or on thick brows to just finish off the brow shape.

It’s a complete god-send! It’s available on the High Definition website and it’s Β£16.00, well worth the spend, as one pencil goes a long way. You can also get this pencil from your local High Definition stylist.

If you are a bride, I’d highly recommend this for your big day, it will show up fantastic on camera as it won’t cake on the brow.

Here’s a guide for your hair type: 

Bombshell: perfect for fair hair and skin
Foxy: perfect for medium hair and skin
Vamp: perfect for dark hair and skin

HD Brows – A cult you want to join!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock the last few years, you’ll have noticed that brows are kinda a big thing. The best type of brow you can have is a HD Brow and I am one of their biggest fans. You’ve probably noticed in the majority of my photos, my brows are in the focal point of the picture and good thing too, cause otherwise it’d be my nose!!! HD Brows, I am forever indebted to you. Mwah!

Recently, I decided to take my passion for brows a little bit further and undertook a HD Brows training course with the Beauty School. The excitement was at fever pitch as I made my booking and counted down the weeks until I started. Then, on the run up to it came the fear. What IF after all my talking about brows this and that, I was actually shite at doing them. Scarlet for me…

As I travelled to Warrenpoint to attend the HD Brows course the excitement was back and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in. I was greeted by Katie and Martina, the educators. They are both highly skilled HD Brow Elites so I knew I was in good hands. After all, I’ve a rep to protect πŸ˜‰

As we started to go through the theory, I relaxed as I realised it was quite a fun approach to the learning. You were asked to look at different face shapes and comment on their currents brows and what would make it better. I loved this part, I always enjoy changing someone’s brows even when doing makeup.

Next, came the threading part. We had pretty much one on one training for any of the practical elements. It’s actually harder than it looks. Those bad-ass ladies with thread in their mouth and every other orifice make it look simple. Eventually, I got my rhythm and I was taking hair like I just don’t care.

It’s not as easy as this mad ole wan makes it look…

Next up, waxing! We practiced on arms and hands first, a good safety measure, sure who will miss their hairy arms! We were told we would have models to work on too and I was secretly praying my client would have the brows of Cara Delevingne, at least if I waxed off too much we still had something to work with. There was no need to fear though, under the careful eyes and guidance of the trainers we slowly worked our way through the procedures. And voila, I had done it. I had styled the brows and they looked pretty effin’ good. If I do say so myself…

The next models we worked on, the educators took a bit of a step back and allowed us to take the consultation and make the recommendation on the brow ourselves with regards to colour and shape. I was really happy with how both of my models had turned out. I had a knack for the tailoring too, possibly from years of borderline living in The Lash Lounge!

Day two, this was a good day, as when I entered the school, our kits were awaiting. I dived right in, zero decorum. The kit was packed full of HD Brow items, all you need to kickstart your career. The kit would easily see you through weeks of brows. I couldn’t wait to use my Foxy and Vamp palettes as they double up as eyeshadow palettes too.

The day consisted of more practice models and further theory work such as contraindications and all kinds of different brow problems. Myself and the other trainers got to do each other’s brows too, which is serious trust on my part considering I barely knew them. Good thing I’d been nice to them all or they easily could have lopped off one of my brows. I’d die, on the spot.

The trainers also let us practice on them, it was all about getting as much time working on different kinds of brows and different approaches to tailoring to tastes. You don’t have to be a beauty therapist to do this course either, as there’s a different mechanism with HD Brows to other types of waxing. I even ended up doing Stephanie in the Beauty School’s offices, I was in the zone.

The range of products that come with the HD Brows brand really make it a differentiator too. There’s so many different products to ”finish” or ”fill” the brow with that you can uniquely tailor every different brow you meet. There’s also a gorgeous makeup range to complement the Brow range.

The HD Brow training and the support system are fantastic, you can attend refresher courses or send in photos of brows you’ve worked on to get feedback. You are also promoted through their salon finder on the official website. It’s not like other courses where finish the course and that’s it, the door is closed. It’s a network of brow enthusiasts and in order to protect the brand, they want you to be the best artist you can be.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in brows, a makeup artist, a beauty therapist or just anyone looking to make a career change. You will love it, I am already eyeing up the HD Make Up course next.

Oh, and if you want your brows did, call me πŸ˜‰
