I received a lot of questions regarding what I use for my eyebrows, so I decided to do a brow tutorial. As brows are the frame to your face I am never fond of over plucking the brow but styling them to enhance your features. There are a lot of different ways of taking care of them.
To be honest I have been bleaching my brows for years making it easy for me to play with the color and shape. It’s good to remember that the darker you go when filling the gaps between the hairs the more attention you will draw toward the brows. I always recommend using a brow pencil that is one or two colors lighter than your actual brow.
I prefer to use a brow pencil instead of a gel or powder as you can work a little more precise. If your brow hairs are on the light side you can opt for a colored brow gel to deepen the color. Using a brow powder can help to soften the appearance of the brows.
Find a few of my favourites below:
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Definer / Delilah – Brow Line
Laura Mercier – Eye Brow Pencils / Tom Ford – Brow Sculptor
Christian Dior – All-In Brow 3 D Backstage pro’s. A convenient powder and gel in one.
Brow How To:
Step 1: Make sure the brow is clean and brows are plucked. Comb the brow through by using an official brow brush. Apply a brow primer if you want. People usually skip this step, but it will help keep your brows from slipping off your face! Brow Brush
Step 2: Comb the brows upwards to be able to draw a straight line at the base of the brow. I used Laura Mercier’s eyebrow pencil in Auburn. Eyebrow Pencil Laura Mercier
Step 3: Comb the brows downward to fill in the brows from the highest point toward the end of the brow. Here I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Auburn which is slightly darker than the Laura Mercier version. Brow Definer Anastasia Beverly Hills
Step 4: Comb the brow from the base to the end of the brow. Use the other end of the pencil (or a clean mascara wand) to pull the color up and through the brows. This will also blend any harsh lines, but if you want a really defined lower line, you can always go back in and add. Brush the eyebrow through.
That’s it! You’re done. You can finish with brow gel, if you want – I usually skip it unless I want to add a little extra sheen. Please let me know if you need any alternative product suggestions!
