Tutorial: Get Perfectly Shaped Eyebrows Using the MAC Brow Finisher

"MAC Brow Finisher in Clear"

I’ve always wanted to try the MAC Brow Finisher in Clear but it’s discontinued in stores, though it’s still available online I more often shop in stores. When I saw that it was re-released with the new limited edition MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection, I snatched it up with my haul and I’ve been using it everyday since. It’s perfect! Holds my brows in place all day without being greasy sticky, or bleeding.

The MAC Brow Finisher is a slim wax stick used to shape and hold the eyebrows in place. It comes in a mechanical applicator with a retractable, slanted tip making it easy to use and application very precise. You simply brush your brows into place and use the Brow Finisher to shape the brows, then fill in with a pencil and/or powder of your choice.

Nicely groomed and shaped brows is all you need if nothing else. Defines your features and face. If I don’t do anything else I always shape and define my brows. Check out my video tutorial to see how…

The MAC Brow Finisher retails for $15 and can be purchased at maccosmetics.com. To get similar results on a budget, you can use the Wet n’ Wild Ultimate Brow Kit in Ash which contains two different shades of brow powder and a brow wax along with a brush, tweezers and a built in mirror. It retails for $3.99. Purchase it at drugstore.com or at your local drugstore.

What do you use to shape your brows?


When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

        Thank you. I used to try to blend with a concealer brush and always mess up. That’s when I thought to use qtips to get close without smudging
