With fuller brows back in style on the runway, the eyebrow craze is at an all time high.
Just because you weren’t born with naturally thick and beautiful Cara Delevingne brows, doesn’t mean you can’t put in a little effort to get a similar look.
Tools you’ll need -
Before you begin, be sure to have a pair of tweezers, an angled brush and a spoolie on hand. Looking above and below your brow, pluck away any stray hairs, but don’t get too carried away. You’ll need your angled brush to apply pigment and the spoolie for finishing touches.
Although the shape of our brows have been naturally created on our faces, you can essentially shape them in any way you want. If your face has more angular features, opt for a softer, more rounded brow to balance things out. The opposite goes for those with rounder faces: emphasizing your brows by making a sharp arch adds that intensity to your face you may have been missing before.
Line it up –
There are three important points of your brow to focus on. The first is the beginning of the brow, closest to your nose. Taking a pencil or brush, line up the beginning of your brow with the side of your nose. If any hairs grow outside that line closer in to your nose, pluck those away. Then, move your pencil diagonally so that it lines up with the bottom of your nostril, extending to the brow. The portion of your brow the pencil hits is where you should create your arch when you start filling in your brows. Finally, line up your pencil diagonally along the outer corner of your eye, extending towards the brow again. That point is where the tail end of your brow should be. If it’s too short, you can create length with your pigment. If it’s too long, pluck away the extra hairs.
Use small strokes -
An eyeshadow or pomade is most preferable because you can use an angled brush to apply color and use gentle strokes to fill in gaps and make it look completely natural. Work your brush upward and sideways to create a naturally bushy effect and try not to draw in bluntly straight lines; it’ll look too obvious.
Blending is the key -
Blend the pigment in with your brow hairs. Brush upwards, to the side and then down to get every hair for uniform brows that look as natural as possible.
Brow gel -
Once you’ve finished everything, gently comb through your brows with a clear brow gel to lock everything in place. You can also spritz a bit of hairspray onto your spoolie or a disposable mascara wand and comb through them for the same effect
