Tutorial: Defined, Shaped Brows using Make-Up

Today's post is a tutorial on how to shape and define your brows using make up. Well groomed brows is a trend that continues to grow(no pun intended), and with good reason. Eyebrows completely frame your face. A thin over-plucked eyebrow will age you and very bushy eyebrows will overtake you face. Eyebrows that are rounded will soften your face and a high arched brow will evoke a Marilyn Monroe style defined look.

What you need:
❤ Brown eyebrow pencil (Essence 02 brown)
❤ White pencil (Catrice Kohl Kajal 040 white)
❤ Highlighter (Urban Decay Naked2 "Bootycall")
❤ Spool
❤ Dome brush (Inglot)

Here's what we start with. Messy, untamed brows. How attractive.

A slight improvement. In this picture I have used my spool to brush my brows into shape.

Taking my eyebrow pencil, I draw one straight line which begins from the beginning of my eyebrow (in line with the inner corner of my eye) to the arch of my brow (above the outer corner of my eye). It is important that your eyebrow pencil is recently sharpened. This keeps the pencil sharp, making the line drawing clearer and simpler. It also peals off any bacteria that may be lurking on your pencil.

I repeat this process above my brow.

I connect the upper and lower lines and create one downward facing line. This completes the eyebrow shape.

With my eyebrow pencil I filled in my brows using strokes that go in the direction of my brow. For a more natural look, use your spool and brush inwards, starting from the inner corners of your brows.

This is an additional step that is great for nights out and for when you know you are going to be photographed. Taking your white liner, trace a line under your arch.

Taking my chosen highlighter ("Bootycall") I have blended this line downwards for a more natural appearance. This makes your arch really prominent. This is your finished look!

Hope you enjoyed reading!
