Prep Your Brows in 8 Easy Steps 0 289

Do you know that eyebrows are often the first thing you notice in a person?  No matter how sultry or dramatic your eye makeup is, it is your brows that make or break the look.  So there is no excuse not to groom!  I’ve created this pictorial to take you on a journey to perfect photo ready brows.

Tools I used:

  • Milani Brow Fix brow shaping kit in the shade “Medium”
  • Éditor eyebrow pencil in the shade “Red Brown”
  • E.L.F. Small Angled Brush
  • E.L.F. Concealer Brush
  • E.L.F. Spoolie Brush
  • Brow razor

1.  Shave

Using the brow razor, shave any stray hair growing out underneath your brow without disturbing the natural brow shape.  Make sure that you apply small strokes by moving the razor in the downward direction.  # 1 RULE: Do not over shave!

2. Bottom

Line the bottom of the brow with the eyebrow pencil.  Instead of a shade that matches your brow color exactly, pick a lighter shade for lining.

3. Top

Line the top also, but this time only on the outer half.  Remember to release the pressure at the tail of the brow to create a diffused end.

4. Outer

Using the small angled brush, fill in the outer half with dark brow powder.  The key to making it look natural is to run the brush in the direction the hair grows.

5. Inner

Take a bit of light brow powder and fill in the remaining inner part with light brush strokes.  This gives a softer look to your brow’s front end.

6. Set

Slightly comb through upwards with the spoolie brush to spread the powder evenly and set unruly hairs in place.

7. Lift

Apply highlight powder right under your brow bone using the concealer brush.  (I prefer concealer brush to the eye makeup brushes when it comes to this.)  This gives the effect of a lifted arch and defined brows.

8. Voilà!
