Welcome back to my blog! It’s Friday, woo! For today’s post I thought I would share with you a step-by-step tutorial on how I do my eyebrows! I often get compliments on my brows(which are always the best type of compliment!), and think I have finally figured out how to create the perfect gradient brow! So, if you want to find out how I do my eyebrows, then please keep on reading.
1. The first step I take when doing my brows, is combing them through with the spoolie end of my eyebrow brush (Makeup Geek). I comb the front of my brows up, and the outer half sideways to create the shape I desire before I apply product. This only takes a few seconds, but is a step I definitely wouldn’t miss!
2. Next, I take my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in the shade ‘Ash Brown’ and my Makeup Geek brow brush, and begin to fill in my eyebrows. I like to start with the arch/ outer half of my eyebrow as this is where most of the product will be. I then use little brush strokes to apply the pomade so the brow will look as natural as possible ( like real brow hairs). To create the tail of the brow I use more pressure so it is opaque and defined. I usually like my brows to be quite thick, so I draw on a new brow arch that is darker than my natural eyebrows, as you can see in the image below.
3. After this, I lightly draw a line underneath the front of my brow which will allow me to create the gradient effect I desire. I then, without applying anymore product, gently fill in the front section of my eyebrow, making sure to get lighter as I reach the front. I also like to check at this point that I am happy with the overall shape and colour of my brow; if not, I go in with my of the dipbrow until I am!
4. When I have created the brow I want, I then like to define it and clean it up using concealer (Freedom Concealer palette in shade’Light’). I use the lightest shade on a Morphe ‘M75’, which is a flat ended brush, and apply it underneath the brow. This gets rid of any mistakes, and really does make a big difference! I blend the concealer using my Real Techniques ‘Deluxe Crease Brush’ which defuses the product and blends it nicely into my Mac Paint Pot in the shade ‘Soft Ochre’, that I use to prime my eyes.
5. The final step I take when doing my eyebrows is setting them in place. I use the Maybelline Brow Drama mascara in the shade ‘Medium Brown’; it ensures that all of the hairs stay in place throughout the day so I don’t have to worry bout them smudging! And that completes my eyebrow tutorial!
I hope you enjoyed this post, and let me know if you would like more of these makeup tutorials! I will be back with another post soon.
