First, I would like to apologize as its been a long time people asked me advice about eyebrows. Actually, Ive always loved wearing make up and as I like well done things, I pay a particular attention when shaping my eyebrows every morning.
You may think it takes an awful amount of time and you dont have time for this. Sincerely, I spend only 2 minutes on my eyebrows. Perhaps, youll spend more time at the beginning but with practice, itll be just a formality.
For this type of advice, I think there is nothing better than a video. As I am not a camera professional and there are girls really good at it, here is a video of one of my favorite vlogger ItsMyRayeRaye.
This girl is just fantastic!!!
The video speaks for itself. However, here is the sum up of the necessary steps to shape and fill your eyebrows.
THE TOOLS :
- Eyebrows brush
- Eyebrows scissors
- Eyebrows pencil (or a powder with a beveled brush)
- Eyebrows gel
STEP 1 / BRUSH YOUR EYEBROW
Its recommended to brush your eyebrows up. This detail has its importance as it ensures your hairs have the same length and it helps you define your eyebrows initial shape.
STEP 2 / LINE THE BOTTOM OF YOUR EYEBROW
This step guides you when defining the shape you want. Then, you just need to tweeze the hairs outside the line. Some people prefer wax. For non-professionals, I greatly recommend to go to a beauty institute. However, tweezers remain the best technique for me.
There are different kind of tweezers. You need to choose the ones which fit the best to you. I personally prefer the beveled type.
STEP 3 / TRIM YOUR EYEBROW
Brush your eyebrow again while paying attention to brush the front of your eyebrow upward and the end downward. Then, trim your hairs. There are scissors specifically conceived for that. Although its an important step, its not essential to have beautiful eyebrows.
The steps 1, 2 and 3 can be done once a week as it depends on the hairs natural growth.
STEP 4 / TWEEZE ABOVE YOUR EYEBROW
Handle with caution! A lot of us screw this step up. Always follow the eyebrow natural line!
STEP 5 / FILL YOUR EYEBROW WITH A PENCIL OR A POWDER
The pencil application is quicker but with a less natural finish. You can also use both while beginning with a powder and finishing the line with a pencil. Ensure to always fade the front of your eyebrow to get a result as natural as possible. Use a color close to your natural color. You can fix the result with a gel.
STEP 6 / CLEAN UP WITH A Q-TIP
You just have to remove the excess of pencil with a Q-Tip. Actually its like drawing!!!
To correct the imperfections, you can also use a thin brush with a little quantity of foundation. Always ensure to fade it to get a natural result.
Voilà!!! Feel free to post your comments or questions. Ill be glad to answer and to know the result on you.
