DIY Eyebrows

DIY Eyebrows

I honestly think eyebrows shape a face. No matter how well make-up is done, if eyebrows aren’t done (properly), the look isn’t complete! For whatever reason, every single time I go to get my eyebrows done and I say “Please, don’t make it thin, I JUST WANT IT CLEANED UP” my voice isn’t heard. Finally I had enough and decided to grow out my brows for 3 full months in order to have them shaped and waxed to my liking. I finally looked like a human again. And that’s the first step to the perfect brow.

Step 1: Get Fresh!

You will be way more successful “drawing” on a perfect brow or filling it in nicely once you have a fresh wax. Other options to cleaning up your brows are threading and/or tweezing. Make sure the person who is doing your eyebrow is either LICENSED or knows what they are doing. You don’t want to have to wait a full 3 months to grow them out if they’re not done correctly.

Step 2: Create Your Outline.

I bought a dark brown pencil from a beauty store down the street from my house for 99 cents. Trace your eyebrow so you can have a precise shape. Ironically, filling in my eyebrows require the least expensive products of all my make up, but takes me the most time. I won’t be satisfied with my make up unless my eyebrows are done as perfectly as possible.

Step 3: Color in the Lines!

You can shade in your eyebrows with the same pencil you outlined them with or use a brown eye shadow to achieve the same look. If you’re more comfortable using a shadow rather than a pencil, make sure it’s a matte brown. I do not suggest using any eye shadow with glitter/shimmer unless your goal in life is to look like Ke$ha.

Step 4: Conceal and Define.

Use a concealer one or two shades lighter than your skin tone to define a crisp outline underneath the brow.

Step 5: Blend.

Blend your concealer by dragging your brush down and out towards the tail of your brow. Keep doing this until you have the appropriate blend. Naturally, because we’re using a concealer 2 shades lighter than the rest of our face, you will create a nice high lite. It’s just important that it’s blended nicely so you don’t look like a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Step 6: Conceal and Define. Again.

Repeat Step 4 on your top brow. The goal is to define a crisp outline above the eyebrow. Start from the beginning of your brow and define all the way to the tip of your brow. Feel free to use a concealer closer to your skin tone for this step.

Step 7: Blend. Again.

Repeat Step 5 on your top brow. You want your eyebrows to look naturally clean and crisp, so blend the concealer until it closely matches your skin tone.

Step 8: Admire!

You’re basically done at this point. Love and admire that perfect brow shape you just created.

***Optional: You can go back and fill in your brow to be slightly darker with a pencil or shadow. My hairs are fine so I decided to repeat Step 3.***

If you’re satisfied with your work, set it with a powder, and then you’re done!

Tip: Your eyebrows are cousins, not twins! Don’t be discouraged if they aren’t perfectly symmetric. šŸ™‚
