Eyebrows are literally EVERYTHING these days. I mean, I usually notice a person’s brows before I even look at their full face….I know vain, right?
With so many tutorials available at your disposal, in 2016 you have zero excuses to be caught with bad brows. Doing, shaping, and filling in your eyebrows can be as easy or as hard as we make it.
Even though there is no ONE method to the eyebrow madness, there are a few basic rules you should follow when trying to achieve maximum fleeky-ness!
1. Use the correct color to fill in.
Eyebrows are usually the first thing people see on your face so you want to make them look as natural as possible. Nothing is worse than trying to fake an eyebrow using the wrong color! Making sure that the color you are using to fill in your brows is as close as possible to your natural (or current) eyebrow color will help you achieve a natural, non-drawn-on look.
2. Use short light-handed strokes.
The purpose of “filling” in our eyebrows is to make them look as if they are naturally fuller, as if “I woke up like this”. When you use drawn out, heavy lines, on your eyebrows they tend to turn out too harsh. Using short light strokes when filling in those brows actually mimics and gives the appearance of real hair.
*Quick tip: Using a freshly sharpened pencil helps the strokes to come out more “hair-like”.
3. Use concealer to clean up those edges.
Concealer is like the icing on the cake when it comes to bomb eyebrows. Using a good concealer that is one or two shades lighter than your foundation will help clean up any mistakes, hide any ratchet hairs growing in and give your eyebrows that freshly waxed look. Be mindful of making sure that your concealer is not too dark or too light (or too dry) as that can counter-effect your brows and actually ruin them instead of sealing the deal. Also, be sure to blend out the concealer with your foundation.
So now that you know the basic rules of a good eyebrow technique, be a good friend and share this article. Friends don’t let friends have bad brows. They just don’t.
