My Eyebrow Routine

So, I definitely do not have the most desirable brows in the world…but after years of plucking and growing out I am finally happy with them. I know I love watching how people perfect their brows so I thought I would share that today.

This post is going to be about how I do my eyebrow makeup, with regards to shaping my brows I get the HD brow treatment at my local beauticians- let me know if you would like a blog post on this.

Before and After

Step 1…guidelines

I always draw a rough shape of where I want my brows to start, arch and finish. This is something I definitely regret not doing in the past, I always stuck with where my brow hair was growing naturally. But I find that it is flattering to extend the brow slightly to fit my face shape better.

To draw the guidelines I use the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Espresso.

Step 2…filling in

Now the obvious part, filling in the gaps. I switch between different products to do this, but today I have used a brow powder from The Body Shop (Shade 02). I use a shade just slightly lighter that the pencil to do this so it’s not so harsh. I then go back in with my pencil to create hair-like strokes.

Step 3…Perfecting

Again, another step I never used to do but it definitely makes a big difference. I take a concealer and an angled brush to draw around the shape of the brow and neaten it up a bit. This not only makes the brows neater but also makes them pop. Today I used Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define (shade C3)- I have a separate review of this if you are interested!

Step 4…Set

Then it’s time to set the brows, this helps them stay in place. If I don’t do this I find throughout the day my brow hairs do whatever the like! I have two products for this, today I used NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel. But If I’m going for extra hold I use Pear Soap! I learnt this trick from PixiWoo, it really makes your brows stick in place.
