Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake in Thunder

One of the most popular questions I get asked is what I use to get my eyebrows so defined. I was pondering on whether to do a post on all the products that I have been known to use, however I thought better of it. The reason being is that I have found a product that knocks spots off all other eyebrow related paraphernalia and is the actual Holy Grail in my eyes.

Ladies, please be upstanding for Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake. This beautiful deep brown cake has been giving me fabulous eyebrows for months and I couldn’t be happier.


First things first though. I have my eyebrows shaped and treated on a regular basis and these are done using by a HD Brow Technician (I will write up a post, with pictures, next time I get them done). My brows have a high arched shape, which is not too dissimilar to my natural shape and therefore, I haven’t really had to mess about with my natural arch to create my brow shape.

The eyebrow cake looks like an eyeshadow, and feels very much like an eyeshadow, however you an use this product wet or dry to create different effects. Taking a small amount on your brush, (I use the Illamasqua Angled Brush, as it really does all the work for you). Using the angle of your brush, guide the product through your natural shape of your eyebrow to fill with product for a natural effect, or define your brows by creating a sharp edge using the angled side of the brush.



Illmasaqua Eyebrow Cake works well dry, however when mixed with water or the Illamasqua sealing gel, it creates a beautiful super defined brow. Dramatic and pushing the boundaries, without looking like a bad scouse brow.

I also use Aurora Gleam to highlight underneath the brow, giving more definition and light reflecting beauty.

This truly is the best eyebrow product I have ever used. If you want to purchase your own you can find the products at Illamasqua. They have also got a multipack online for the eyebrow cake, brush and gleam for £51
