Eyebrow pencil tips

Hello everyone!

As we all know, well groomed eyebrows balance your features and frame your eyes As I told you previously, I'm kind of obsessed with eyebrows

A common way to groom your eyebrows is by using eyebrow pencil.  This post will explain how to use it correctly.

If you want well defined, natural-looking eyebrows, all you have to do is follow these few simple steps and additional tips below.

Step 1: Fill-in the eyebrows with your pencil using thin, hair-like strokes.  Use short strokes that overlap, to make the eyebrows appear fuller.


Step 2: Blend colour and groom brows with an eyebrow comb or spooley brush.
Step 3: (Optional) For very defined brows, take a small flat brush and apply creamy concealer around the brows to tidy up the edges.  
Step 4: (Optional) Keep you eyebrows in place with a brow gel.

Tips:
  • Choose the shade closest to you natural colour.
  • Never, ever fill in your brows with black pencil!  Unless you want the black Sharpie brows, don’t do this.  Even if you have black eyebrows, you want to fill them in with a dark brown colour - not black.
  • Make sure your eyebrows are groomed, before applying any make-up.  
  • When it comes to filling-in your brows, the key is to remember to imitate the look of the hairs.
  • Never use solid tick lines to “draw in” the eyebrows.  A series of thin, overlapping strokes provides a more natural-looking result.
Remember eyebrows are sisters, not twins.
