How To Get The Perfect Eyebrows




Never underestimate how important your eyebrows are to your overall appearance. Eyebrows frame the whole face, and when looking their best they really enhance a person's prettiness. These are the tools that I use to get my eyebrows in tip-top condition...

Prep
First of all I pluck all the stray hairs around the eyebrows. I only pluck from underneath to ensure that the natural arch and shape of the brow is maintained. Next I take an eyebrow comb and brush all the hairs upwards, and then trim the edges with curved scissors to ensure that fly-aways are minimised.

Enhance
To fill my brows in and make them look better, I take a very small brush (as shown the picture above) and put a bit of powder on it. It is important to ensure that the colour of the powder matches your natural brow colour as closely as possible as otherwise the brows can look too fake. I really recommend the HD Brows palette for this, which comes in a variety of different shades to suit different complexions (I have the Foxy one). I like that I am able to mix the colours together to create the perfect shade for me. Another good brow powder is Benefit Brow-Zings, which I also use regularly, although now I've discovered the HD Brows one I think I'll stick to that one in the future. When your are applying the powder, concentrate more on the inner brow- the part closest to your nose- as that's where most of the hair is. When applying the powder along the brows go sparingly towards the edges as, again, you don't want it to look artificial. Finally I set my brows with eyebrow gel to ensure that they stay in place and filled-in all day. I'd  recommend the Illamasqua Brow Setting Gel for this as it works really well and doesn't leave any residue behind!

What do you think of my brow tutorial? What eyebrow products do you use?

  5. I have only just started filling in my brows, and I always feel like they look super fake and awkward at first even though I use a taupe brow pencil and I have light brown hair/ombred to blonde hair.
