3 Simple Steps to getting your Eyebrows on Fleek
Eyebrows are LIFE! When you find a great eyebrow technician you stay with them. You trust them with your life, literally. LOL!! Brows shape our face, brings confidence, and make us Poised. I am a firm believer that Eyebrows, Lashes, and Concealer is all you need for a great makeup look.
There are so many brow products on the market. Honestly, it is a little over whelming because you do not want to waste your money and time. I understand that feeling, when you get home and you are excited to try a product and its the complete opposite of your expectations. Below are 3 Simple Steps to getting your brows on fleek:
Step 1: Shaping/Styling Your Brows:
There are tons of brow tutorials and literature. There is nothing like experience. I highly recommend that you practice and explore different techniques. Do you not over tweeze your brows. Thick, natural brows are in!! If you use concealer to clean up your brows, use the correct color. When you are highlighting your brows, only highlight the brow bone and use one shade lighter than your complexion. If you sculpt the top of the brow use the color of your foundation, so you can have a clean and natural look.
Step 2: Determine the Product Consistency
There are so many brow products on the market. There are brow pencils, gel, pomades, and brow powders. Each brow consistency performs differently. You would need to play around with different products to understand which one works better for you. The brow pencils will give you a natural brow look, pomades can give a natural look and an unnatural look. It all depends on your preference. Brow powders will give you natural look as well. Once you find the consistency that you like, find the brand that works best for you. I use a combination of a pencil and powder because I like a full, natural, and clean brows. I prefer this combination because I feel more comfortable using those tools.
Step 3: Determine your Product Color:
The color of the product should compliment your skin tone. You do not want your brow product color too dark or too light. If the product is too light it will not accentuate your features. If the product is too dark it will make your face look “harsh/unnatural”. A rule of thumb is not to use Black on your brows. If you want a darker color, products in the color dark brown, chocolate, or ebony are good dark colors.
Go for a color that is the same shade as your brows. When using a brow pencil you can go one shade lighter or one shade darker. When using a brow powder you can follow the concept of the pencil. Brow pomades and creams are little heavier than the pencil and powder. I would choose a pomade color that is the color of your brows.
Remember there are multiple ways to achieve the brow mission. Explore and find out what works for you. Don't get over stimulated by all of the products and literature that is out there. Research brows that you like and practice on creating that brow look for yourself.
