05 May Perfect Eyebrows
Warning: May cause addiction to fabulous full brows!
Tools you will need:
- Eye shadow
- Angle brush
- Gel eyeliner (optional)
- Brow gel (optional)
- Brow brush
To choose the right color for your brows, try to pick a color that is slightly lighter or darker than your natural brows, depending on the look you want to achieve. I like to go slightly lighter, this way I can control how dark my brows will be.
Keep in mind the shape of your brows.
You always want to follow your natural shape and just tweak it , if need be. Ideally you want to keep your arch lined up with the outside of the iris.
Using your angle brush and eye shadow, outline your brow. This is the time to exaggerate the arch of your brow if you need to. This will be the base for your shape. Next, start filing the inside of the shape you just created. Swipe the color in an upward motion, following your eyebrow hair. Keep doing this until you’ve achieved the fullness you are looking for.
If you’re feeling adventurous and want to try something more bold, I love using a gel liner to define my brows first, then mixing in an eye shadow to shade them in. this creates a lot of dimension.
We’re almost there!
Now you don’t have to do this step but I love the effect it gives. Using a flat brush take some concealer and swipe it right underneath your brows. This will give it a clean, sharp look.
Last but not least, if your brows are out of control and like to move around a lot, stick them in place using a clear eyebrow gel.
With the growing trend of perfected brows there are a lot of brands now offering Brow Kits that usually contain a variety of colors so you can really customize your look. Don’t be afraid to play!
