Emily Skye may be well-known for her health and fitness advice, but we needed to know something about her beauty routine: What keeps her brow game so strong? The wellness influencer tells Health she relies on a few products to keep her brows full and well-groomed.

“If I don’t have a photo shoot or filming or a meeting, I won’t wear any makeup,” she says. “But my eyebrows—I won’t leave the house without using an eyebrow gel or pencil. My eyebrows are pretty out of control. They’re pretty wild.”

Fuller brows are an enduring trend, and Skye says the brand Benefit Cosmetics has some of her favorite go-tos. The first thing she grabs is their Precisely, My Brow Pencil.

“I use it to fill them in and define a little bit,” she says, adding that she’s also loving the 3D BROWtones Instant Color Highlights to hold them in place. “I also love Gimme Brow [eyebrow gel] because I love thick, natural brows.”

To keep her brows from getting too unruly, Skye plucks any hairs that are out of place and uses a brush and scissors to trim. About once a month, she applies an at-home eyebrow dye from 1000 Hour. “It’s really easy to use and helps with getting ready so you don’t have to pencil them in as much,” she says.

Along with her eyebrows, Skye uses one other beauty product every day: Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm. "I like a few different colors, but Hibiscus is my favorite one,” she says. “It gives you a bit of color."

Her fresh-faced look is supplemented by her extensive skincare routine, which starts with keeping hydrated. While she says it’s often overlooked, she credits drinking a lot of water for her clear skin. As for the products she trusts, Skye switches it up between the HydroPeptide and Ultraceutical systems.

I’m still not sure whether @babymiaelise’s onesie is a bear or a sheep but either way it’s pretty cute and snuggly! 🐻🐑 Alright, I’m about to get slightly deep for a little bit... I find it crazy how many people spend their whole lives searching for happiness, most of the time in all the wrong places. Nothing they have ever seems “enough” or they get bored with what they’ve got and want more or different. I think it’s easy to overlook the amazing people and things we have in our lives when we’re so caught up focusing on what we don’t have. Yep there will always be things we don’t have and there will always be people out there with “more” which doesn’t necessarily mean “better”. On the other there will always be people with less than you. Anyway my point is we all have so many things in our lives right now that have the potential to make us insanely happy if we only took the time to truly appreciate them... and the things that make us happiest in my opinion aren’t “things” at all - they’re PEOPLE! I have everything I need right now, my amazing man @recdedmond who I’ve been with for 8.5 years and my incredibly gorgeous little girl Mia who is the absolute highlight of my life. I am honestly the happiest I’ve ever been and I always try to make the time every single day to be truly grateful for my family. I still have down days or times when I feel sh*tty and temporarily forget about how blessed I am 🙄🙈 but the more effort I make to spend time practicing gratitude and making sure I have perspective the happier I am. . - Just a few thoughts for the day! 😊😘 Be grateful for all you DO have. Family (which don’t have to be blood by the way) are MOST important! 💗🙏🏼 . .

When she was pregnant with baby Mia, who is now almost seven months old, she had eyelash extensions. Now back to her natural lashes, Skye says HydroPeptide’s Lash serum is helping them grow back.

Skye cleanses her face up to three times each night (“to make sure everything is off!”), and uses a serum before applying moisturizer or a hydrating mask. A few times per week, she exfoliates using a Clarisonic brush to remove dead skin. Every once in a while, she goes in for a microdermabrasion, chemical peel, or dermaneedling appointment.

Like any exercise regimen, your skincare routine can take some time to perfect. With these essentials from Skye, we can hone in on certain features—like our brows and lips—to make mornings more manageable.
