Brow Pictorial for Sparse Eyebrows

Jul 15, 2013

In a previous post I featured a before and after picture of my brows.  Since then, I have had a few requests for a pictorial and so I created one.  I hope this pictorial helps those with sparse brows achieve the look of fuller brows.

Step 1: I start by brushing my brows upward using my Real Techniques Lash and Brow Groomer.  I do this to get an idea of the general shape that I want to achieve.

Step 2: I brush my brow hairs downward to see which brow hairs are too long and may need a trim.

Step 3:  I trim the hairs using brow scissors. 

Step 4:  After brushing the hairs up again, I razor any brow hairs that are growing beneath my desired brow.

Step 5:  I draw in the bottom portion of my brow with an angled brow brush (using my Make Up For Ever Eye Brow Corrector in #4) and extend the tail of the brow outward.  I start with very little product as a little goes a long way.

Step 6:  Without adding any additional product, I start filling the brow in using upward strokes.  I like doing this because it not only fills in the brow but it also tames the brow hair and tends to make them stay in place.  Also, you want to fill in the brow starting at the center or end of the brow.  Use the least amount of product and pressure at the inner part of the brow so that they don't look as drawn on.

This is what the brow looks like after its been completely filled in.  This is a more natural brow than I usually do.  To achieve a darker look, simply add a little bit more product and deepen the color. 

Step 7:  I clean up the brow using MAC's Studio Finish Concealer in NW40 which is a few of shades lighter than my skin color.  I do not use concealer above my brows anymore, however if you would like to define the top of your brow, use a concealer or foundation that is the same shade as your skin tone.

This is what the brow looks like after concealer application.

Step 8:  I then blend out the concealer using my finger or any fluffy blending brush.

Eyebrow Makeover - Before and After

Jul 6, 2013

I love a good brow.  They are my absolute favorite thing to highlight on myself and I rarely leave the house without doing something with them.  I get a lot of questions and comments regarding my brows so I thought I would do a post to talk specifically about what I use to "do" my brows.  I have very sparse brows so this method really works for me and my brows stay put all day!

My absolute favorite brow product is Make Up For Ever's Waterproof Eye Brow Corrector in #4 (which has been discontinued much to my dismay).   A comparable product would be the Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow or the MAC's Dipdown Fluidline.

I fill in my brows 99% of the time using the Brow Corrector.  However, when I'm in a rush, I will simply use a brow pencil.  My preferred pencils are MAC's Brow Pencil in Spiked or Stud.

I typically clean up underneath my brows using MAC's Studio Finish Concealer in NW40.  I do not use concealer above my brows.  I usually just clean that area with razor contouring.  I also trim my brow hairs with brow scissors.  

Hope you found this post helpful!  Let me know if you would like to see a step by step pictorial!
