In the following steps, I will describe how I retain a natural shape for my brow, and clean them up to get that salon look.
Step 1: Materials
- broad tipped set
- as well as fine tipped set (see photo)
- Rubbing Alcohol and Cotton Pads (for occasional cleaning of tweezers)
- Brow Pencil that matches your brow color
- Brow Brush
- Small Scissor
- Highlight Pencil or White Eyeliner
- Brow Gel
Step 2: A History Lesson & Helpful Tips
Some of the most historically sensational eyebrows have been on the faces of movie stars. If you look at the grid, you'll see that most of these starlets brows appear natural and full. The ones that are thin are drawn back in with dark pencil. For a natural look, you barely use an eyebrow pencil at all. If you have to use a pencil, it is to fill in sparse spots. (I have a small scar on my left eyebrow that I often gently dust with an eyebrow pencil)
Eyebrow pencil is not as waxy as eyeliners and other makeup pencils, it is more of a powdery pencil that requires a light touch when applying. Use sparingly.
