Eyebrow Tutorial by Holly Beasley

Posted 2:01 PM by

how to: eyebrows

Eyebrows are the most identifying facial feature that frame your eyes and, when shaped properly, bring out the eyes and thus brighten the face. Even if you already have a pretty nice natural shape to begin with, a subtle change can make a difference. The eyebrows show emotion and can soften or define facial features. Taking the time to shape the eyebrow is a small change that can really make a huge difference!
 
Before we begin with the step by step tutorial, let’s discuss a few tips to keep in mind to help along the way. First, practice makes perfect; don’t get discouraged if you don’t get it the first time, or the second...or third. Secondly, brows are sisters, not identical twins - don’t get caught up in making them perfectly identical. Lastly, back up from the mirror. Getting the balance, shape, and thickness of the brow correct for the face is achieved by seeing the brows not only up close but from a distance as well. Your brows may look impeccable in the magnifying mirror but in person they may look uneven on the face and/or too thick or too thin. 
 
So let’s get started!
 
Begin by finding the placement of your brow. Refer to this diagram to know where your brow should start, arch and end.
 
 

 

 
Step 1: Apply eye primer to the lid and into the brow area. We recommend Blinc Eyeshadow Primer. Comb brows into shape. 
 
Step 2: Using an eyebrow or eyeliner pencil, outline the bottom of the brow with short, wispy strokes starting at the inner corner and working up to the arch (Image 1). We recommend using the Youngblood Eyeliner pencil. Continue the line from the arch to the desired tail of the brow (Image 2). Repeat on the other side. Remember, when working with a pencil, it is important to use a light hand as too much pressure can create an unnatural and harsh end result
 
Step 3: Outline the top of the brow starting 2/3rds of the way in from the inner corner to the peak of the arch (Image 3). Continue the line from the peak of the arch to the tail connecting the top and bottom lines (Image 4). Repeat on the other side.
 
Step 4: Take a soft brow brush and lightly diffuse the lines toward the center of the brow.
 
Step 5: Using the Bdellium 762 angled brush, apply brow powder to the inside of the brow using a light hand (Image 5). We recommend using the Youngblood Brow Artiste Palette. Start in the middle and work your way toward the tail end. Pick up more brow powder with your brush and begin to fill in the front of the brow where you want it to begin (this can be extended past the natural brow or within it). Lightly brush brows with a brow brush to blend the products.
 
Step 6: At this time you can clean up any mistakes around the brow with a Q-tip. If more definition is desired, concealer applied with a precision concealer brush can be used around the edges.
 
Step 7:  Next, using the Bdellium 975 mixed powder brush, apply face powder over the entire brow area to set the brows and soften the edges (Image 6). We recommend using the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Rice Powder. And your done!
