No one wants to go around with eyebrows looking like this. Nor should they. Ever. But not everyone knows how to shape and fill in their brows. So, voila! I give you 3 magical and easy steps for finding your perfect brow shape!
As shown above, use a brush or straight edge to find where your eyebrow starts, arches, and ends according to your eye shape.
-Line the brush up with the edge of your nostril and hold it vertically to make an “imaginary” line straight up to your brow. For beginners, you can make a little dot to mark this spot with your brow powder so you know you can’t go any farther in than that. This is where your eyebrow should start.
-Now, make a line from the edge of your nostril to the outside edge of your iris. Where this line extends up to your brow is going to mark where your brow should arch.
-Finally, make the line reach from your nostril to the outer corner of your eye and this will show you where your eyebrow should end.
Easy, right? Now comes the hard part.
Step 1- Groom your brows with Brush-on Brow Gel, brushing the hair in an upward motion. Oh and that wasn’t the hard part.
Step 2- Underscore the bottom of your eyebrow and the top. You’ll make an actual line using an Angle Shading Brush and Brow Powder. Don’t worry about the line looking too distinct. It will all be groomed out later.
Step 3- At the arch, connect the top and bottom line together and pull down to make the “tail.”
Step 4- Leave the inner part of your brow only slightly filled in for a natural, dimensional brow. You still want to be able to see the hairs. So don’t re-dip your brush in brow powder! Just use whatever is left on your brush, and brush upward in the direction that the hair is growing.
Step 5- Now, brush through your brow until all the lines are blended and you have the desired depth. If you want a more defined brow, you can take a Square Detail Brush with a tiny bit of concealer (your skin tone or one shade lighter) and apply under the eyebrow for a natural highlight.
Now for the before and after shot! Cue the oohs and aahs. You can really notice the difference in the “after” pic between the eye brow that’s been filled in and the one that hasn’t.
OK, well if you’ve made it this far, you’ve reached the end! Hooray! This is probably my longest post yet, visually at least. But I think the photos really make all the difference. Now it’s your turn to try this technique. I’m sure you will have beautifully sculpted eyebrows in no time!
