Pump those brows.

Bold fuller brows are so 2014!

Blame it on Cara Delevingne who I loveeeeee!

But what are you supposed to do if you aren’t blessed in the brow department or you tweezed them all out in the ’90s because you loved Pamela Anderson or are you simply scared of augmenting your assets with a little pencil and powder action?

I’m here to help and give you a few pointers. As I’ve had experience.. I tweezed way to much in the 90’s and therefore have to tend to my brows every day with love and care.  I’ve tried to grow them back over the last couple of years but it’s just not happening! 🙁

Tweezing

The first step to your brows is tweezing and knowing where to tweeze.  Using your eyeball as a guide, line up the handle of the makeup brush on the outer edge of or your iris. Wherever it hits—that’s your arch. You should have a natural arch in your brows that you should follow. This is where you’ll take the most hair. But keep in mind that may only be a few hairs or a lot of blondies.. Depending on how hairy those brows are 🙂 Remember to also hold your skin tight with the other hand while tweezing.  This will help with the pain and also prevent the hair from breaking.

Use this diagram as a guide.  But be careful not to take to much from the top and ends of your brows.  The ends are always the hardest to grow back.

Filling your brows in

You can fill in your brows with a pencil or powder and an angled brush—use whichever one you’re most comfortable with. If your brows are particularly sparse, I suggest a two-step approach. First use a pencil painting wispy light feathery strokes to create the illusion of real hairs and create the shape then  a powder to soften the pencil with a small angled brush.  I also like to brush the hairs with a clean mascara wand during this whole process to smooth it all out even more.

Natural brow look but still drawn in.  Follow the instructions above.

Heavy Brows…  Yes these are the fashion right now.
There is nothing natural about this look.. Be heavy handed.  Draw a square lines with that pencil or gel liner an accentuate the points.   Then fill it in with a shadow of a touch lighter shade.
