It is a well known fact that perfectly sculpted eyebrows frame the face, give you a more polished look, and are the starting point to any and every makeup look. Sculpting your eyebrows is not only easy, but it takes little to no time to achieve. If you want to know what it takes to achieve a very natural, arched eyebrow then your search has ended. . Read on…
- Eyebrow brush or Spoolie
- Slanted tweezers
- Eyebrow scissors (optional)
- Eyebrow pencil or powder
- Small concealer brush
1. Brush Eyebrows into Desired Shape.
Use an eyebrow brush or spoolie (pictured above) to brush your browns into desired shape. I usually use upward strokes to make the hair more uniform. After brushing, you may use eyebrow scissors to trim any stray hairs. This is completely optional.
2. Pluck Stray Hair
Find a quality pair of slanted tweezers to pluck stray hair. I personally love Tweezerman because they maintain their sharpness despite continued use. To prevent over-plucking, or if you are a beginner, you may use an eyebrow pencil to outline your desired shape.
3. Fill in Sparse Areas
Use your favorite eyebrow pencil or powder to fill in sparse areas. If you are using a pencil, it is essential to use short light strokes to maintain a natural “hair-like” appearance. Make sure your brow pencil or powder resembles your natural hair color. Very few people can pull of a REALISTIC black brow.
4. Define Eyebrow
Using a small concealer brush, brush a concealer that is 1 shade lighter then your skin tone to the underside of your brow (brow bone). Make sure you blend well. You can brush concealer above your brow to create an even more defined look, however this is optional.
