TIPS FOR THE PERFECT EYEBROWS

Having figured out the type of eyebrow for your face, knowing how to draw the perfect brow is quite challenging but with the basic steps outline below you are already in greatness.

  1. Keep ready all your tool

Brow pencil, Brow gel, brow powder or brow pen are the four ideal kit to use in filling your brow. Other kits such as eyebrow blade, eyebrow brush, tweezer and brow stencils are also necessary.

  • Identify your starting points

Flip your tweezer so that it will appear upside down. Place it in a vertical position while putting it alongside the outer edge of the bottom of your nose. Mark the point where the tip is as it should be where your brow should begin. Then using your eye pencil, put a vertical line to locate the start of each brow.

2. Locate your end points

Put the tweezer so that it can be angled against your cheek while the open end is at the bottom of your nose and the other end is at the outer eye corner. Mark the spot where the tweezer crosses your brow to where the brow hair should end. Pluck the hair that goes beyond the line.

3. Shape your Brows

Use an eyebrow pencil that suits your skin color, start by brushing out your eyebrows with an eyebrow brush, draw a line at the bottom part of your brows, beginning at its fullest portion making sure that it is above any stray hairs and follows your natural arch. Shape your brows like you are drawing an upside-down check mark. Keep the peak of your arch on the exterior rim of your iris and right on your brow bone while tapering its ends.

With perfectly sculpted brows that enhance your features and open your eyes, you can get away with wearing minimal makeup–and still look great!
