I’ve been asked to do an eyebrow tutorial for the longest time, but because I’ve been struggeling to find brow products which stay put during the summer season I have been postponing it a bit. I have finally found some products I really like and because some of these products are waterproof they work well for the beach as well. Yay!
The importance of eyebrows are often underestimated. You can’t really understand the importance of great eyebrows and how much they frame your face until you take them away. Just check out how some of the worlds most beautiful women would look without any eyebrows:
Pretty scary, huh? ;)
How I do my brows:
1. I start by plucking underneath the brow, little by little. Don’t go too fast on this step, more is less. If your brows are sparse like mine, you need to be extra careful to not remove too much hair. Invest in a great tweezer as it’s terribly annoying to work with tweezers that can’t manage to pluck the smallest stubs.
The tweezer I use is by Fred Hamelten, and this little baby plucks even the smallest hairs. It has won prizes for being the best tweezer in the world, and I can agree on that. Doesn’t hurt that it’s shiny and pretty either ;) I got mine here.
2. I like to start by carefully filling in the sparse areas with a waterproof eye brow pencil (really great for the summer and beach time!). I apply it using small delicate strokes followed by carefully brushing through the brow with the brush that comes with the pencil. I then set the brows with an eye brow powder which gives an illusion of fuller brows. I apply slightly less on the beginning of the brow as I think it looks more natural that way. I still like the brow to have that nice square-ish shape though, so I have a little trick up my sleeve for that issue which I will tell you about in the next step.
Both products are by Billion Dollar Brows. The brow powder is in the colour Taupe, which I apply with an angled brush from the same brand.
3. The secret trick I’m talking about is to apply a concealer along the edges of the brow. I just dot on some concealer and gently dab it in along the edges of the brow creating a square-ish shape on the inner part of the brow. This also makes the rest of the brow look cleaner and more groomed. Lastly I brush through with an eye brow gel to make sure they stay in place all day. The brow gel I use is also by Billion Dollar Brows.
