30 Second Brow Routine

While I love makeup, I would say I really only spend about 5 minutes on my makeup routine each day. Simplifying my beauty routine is important to getting me out the door on time. Over the years, I've found a good mix of products that are both effective and quick to apply!

I've been filling in my brows for quite a few years now, and I've used both pencil and liquid brow gel products. I definitely prefer brow gels for a more natural look, and it's a huge bonus that they're easier and faster to apply if you're not used to filling in your brows. While I love a good perfectly sculpted, full brow on all my favorite makeup gurus, I always feel way overdone when I try to do that on myself. So a simple quick swipe of brow gel it is for me!

You might remember last year's post when I reviewed a handful of Beautycounter products. I absolutely love that Beautycounter focuses on clean beauty while also producing high-quality makeup and skincare products that work. You would be completely surprised by how much junk is in our beauty products that can be so harmful to our bodies! Safer beauty is SO important.

My friend and Beautycounter consultant Rebecca gifted me with the Beautycounter Brilliant Brow Gel in the shade "light," and I haven't stopped using it since I received it! Between you and me, this routine probably takes me about 15 seconds total. Whether you're sporting a quick out-the-door look like I am in the photos below or you're dressing up for a night out, this brow gel will get you the look you're going for. You can see in these before photos that I have fairly sparse eyebrows. One thing to keep in mind when purchasing is to go a few shades lighter than you think. Since I don't prefer bold brows, the lightest color worked best for me!

Before applying the brow gel...

I simply swipe the product onto my brows while also shaping the hairs in the way I want them to go. Feel free to layer up and even go outside your regular brow line to create a fuller brow if that's the look you're going for.

After applying the brow gel! 
I love how it gives such a subtle change, but it really can transform your look and shape your face!
At just $24, the Beautycounter Brilliant Brow Gel is totally worth it, and the perfect small step toward creating a cleaner beauty routine.

If you're not sure what color to get or if you have any questions at all, my friend Rebecca is so sweet and would be such a great resource for you! Switching to cleaner beauty can be quite pricey, but she did mention some great promos they have going on right now featuring a free overnight resurfacing peel! You can follow and message her on Instagram or Facebook!
