When I first began my makeup journey 5 years ago, my eyebrows was the first thing I learned how to do. My eyebrows were a mess from over waxing, arching, and trying to have those 90 brows.
The 90’s was almost 20 years ago and the new brow trend is defined, full eyebrows. I used to spend countless hours watching my favorite you-tubers do their eyebrows. I would run to the local beauty supply store buy everything they used and practice. It was a struggle in the beginning. I had boxed brows, sharpie brows and I even did them with a black pencil once (big no-no).
I’m sharing my simple brow routine to help you in your current brow journey. The best thing about my brow routine is it’s a quick, simple, and natural. It will have your eyebrows filled in and on fleek in less than 10 minutes! because busy mamas like us need to keep beauty simple.
The key to a good brow like with anything else is practice. Don’t worry if you don’t get it perfect on the first try. It’s a skill that will be mastered with time and patience. Once it’s mastered you’re brows and life will never be the same again
There’s several ways and a multitude of products to use to fill in brows.
All of these brow products are offered by most makeup brands and come in a variety of colors to suit all eyebrow colors. My favorite way is using a brow pencil, I feel more in control and do my brows the fastest when I use a pencil.
*Spoolie: Makeup brush to brush brow hairs into place
*Brow Pencil: What you use to fill in brows
*Concealer: To carve and clean up bottom of brows
*Foundation of the day: To shape top of brows for seamless finish
*Brow gel: optional but it helps with keeping brow hairs in place
Use your face as a guide to know where to begin your brows!
Step 1: Brush eyebrow hairs following natural brow pattern. Take the spoolie or brow pencil place it next to the bridge of your nose. This is where brows should begin.
Step 2: Take your brow pencil and follow the natural shape of your brow, lightly sketch out a line underneath your brow
If your eyebrows are short like mine, just extend the line to above your outer eye area
Step 3: Repeat step 2 for top of brows now you have your basic brow outline. Take your brow pencil and lightly fill in your brow to your liking
**Remember never use a black pencil to fill in brows and don’t worry about mistakes you can fix that with concealer!
Step 4:Using concealer carefully carve and clean underneath brows
**Here you can fix any mistakes you’ve made while you were filling in and defining your brows**
Step6:Using your foundation of the day clean the top of your brows
**Use foundation that matches your skin tone it provides a more natural finish**
Step 7: Apply a eyebrow gel on eyebrows to keep hairs in place(optional)
How easy was that?
