I received some amazing brow goodies from Benefit Cosmetics that I’ve been trying out for the last few weeks and was inspired to create a pictorial to show you how I do my brows.
I’ve tried all different types of brow products and, personally, I find that with a brow pencil, it’s much easier and quicker to achieve a natural looking result versus a brow cream or powder. I’m obsessed with the Precisely, My Brow Pencil because it has a micro-fine tip that allows for utmost precision and is incredibly easy to work with and lasts all day long. LOVE!
Let’s get to the brow transformation!
Step 1: Use a spoolie brush to comb through the brow hairs.
Step 2: Trace along the bottom of the brow with the pencil.
Step 3: Trace the top of the brow; connect the two lines at the brow tail.
Step 4: Create soft brush strokes and fill in brow; thicken as desired. Use a light hand to apply the color at the front of the brow and deepen the coloration towards the brow tail to achieve a natural looking gradient effect.
Step 5: Blend out the color with the spoolie brush.
Step 6: Trace a concealer underneath the brow using a small flat brush to clean up the line and create a more precise shape.
Step 7: Finish off by setting the color and brow hairs with a clear brow gel.
That was pretty easy, right?!
Here are some fun fact about my brows:
I over-plucked my eyebrows in high school and they were superrr thin (it wasn’t a cute look)! Yikes! When I was 25, I decided that I wanted a different brow shape than the thin and highly arched brows that I was sporting at the time, so I grew them out — best decision ever.
My good brow is the right one; the left one can be quite troublesome since it suffers from incurable patchiness due to years of tweezer damage.
TIP: If you apply too much brow color and want to lighten it, dust a translucent setting powder on top to soften up the color. 🙂
