There used to be a time when thin, over-arched eyebrows were the bomb. But those days are gone. Right now, it's all about those 80's bushy eyebrows ala Brooke Shields and Madonna. The more-defined and bold the brows, the better.
Hello 80s: Bushy Eyebrows by Brooke Shields and Madonna
Personally, I always have had thick eyebrows so getting on this trend wasn't difficult. I didn't have the need to buy eyebrow pencils or powders because I figured that I have thick and dark enough brows and adding more might be over the top.

I changed my mind though. I got jealous looking at those perfect, thick brows celebrities always had and mine though thick, wasn't close to perfect.
NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Taupe/Ash
This NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder is my first dabble into the eyebrow makeup world. Reviews I found online garnered good enough ratings and the price wasn't too steep so I made the jump in purchasing this.

Each NYX eyebrow cake powder kit includes a slanted brush and a round wand. There are six color combinations and I chose the Taupe/Ash. There's a Black/Gray combo but I figured that can be too dark for my already dark brows.

Both colors are matte and have some cool undertones to it. I think the duo shades are perfect for defining my eyebrows without it being too in-your-face.

How to Use: I use the round brush to get a little bit of the wax and then comb it through my eyebrows to shape them. After that, I use the angle brush (I used my own eyebrow brush) to apply powder to brows. I use the Taupe to define the shape and the Ash to fill in the gaps. As a finishing touch, follow up with round wand again to style and keep brows in place.
