Experts say that eyebrows have two main purposes: keeping moisture out of our eyes and expressing emotion. But may we add one more function—fabulousness!? It really is amazing just how much of an impact eyebrows make. Too sparse, too unruly, too whatever, and your whole facial symmetry is thrown off!
So to help make sure your eyebrows are always on point, we're dishing our favorite tips - 8 of them to be exact -on how to do your eyebrows—and we're not talking tweezing or trimming. We're talking eyebrow makeup!
If you're a brow newbie, stick to easy-to-use brow products like a tinted brow gel or mascara which brushes on easily, tinting and taming brows with just a few strokes.
Weird, right? That seems the logical place to begin your eyebrow artistry, but it's way too easy to overdo the front. Instead, start at the center or tail of your brow to avoid putting too much on.
No matter what your method of choice, your handiwork should be tiny, hair-like strokes. You might see makeup artists outlining perfect brows in one fell swoop but they're pros. For the rest of us, tiny, angled strokes.
There are so many natural-looking options nowadays. One or two strokes of our new Brow Extensions Fiber Pomade Crayon creates thick, natural-looking eyebrows instantly thanks to hair-like fibers that adhere to brow hairs for a thicker, fuller effect.
A perfectly sculpted brow looks great in an editorial situation, but in real life, it can be a bit much. Buff out any noticeable eyebrow pencil lines inside the brow, and also trace over the outline ever so slightly with a spoolie brush.
It tends to get ignored in favor of its front and center half. This leads to unbalanced brows, which is not cute.
And add more product as you go. Halfway through doing your eyebrows, stand back, look in the mirror and survey your work. How'd you do? Missed a spot? A bit heavy on the left side? Brows are a series of checks and balances.
Always follow your natural brow shape rather than trying to recreate someone else's eyebrows.
