Hi!! So, yes this is my first beauty related post. Why? Because I’m not really all that great with different beauty stuff but this tip has really helped me a lot so I thought I would share it with you! Have you ever thought about putting makeup on your eyebrows? Why would you do that, you ask? It really helps to define your eyebrow shape, fill in any patchy spots and really helps to “frame” the face. Once I started doing it I really found this was the finishing touch I needed to pull together my look!
As you can see from this before and after picture, the end result is not over powering but it definitely gives a more defined look. And, the great part is you don’t need any fancy makeup tools or kits like you may think. All I use for my eyebrow makeup is three things.
You need eyeshadow that matches your hair color and is a MATTE shade. Shimmery colors will NOT work for this!! An eyebrow comb and an angled brush, The comb I got at Sally’s beauty supply in a cheap pack of brushes and the angled brush I got at wal-mart. First, you use the comb to just comb through the eyebrows to get all the hairs going in the same direction. Then, with the angled brush just dip the flat tip straight in the color and tap off any excess. Just tap it the one time, don’t go trying to get a ton of color on it. Then, just brush it through the length of the eye brows defining the outer edges. It will take a little practice so I suggest just trying it out a couple times before actually doing your full make up. Then, once again use the comb to put the hairs back in place. This will also help brush through the eyeshadow in case you were a little heavy handed in an area. Here I have done all my makeup except for the eyebrows:
This is with one eyebrow done, so you can see the subtle difference.
And, here is with both done, much better!
Now, I’m ready for the day!
I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope it inspired you to try out eyebrow makeup as well! Thanks for reading!
