All About The Brows - Eyebrow Tutorial

Hello loves! I wanted to post a quick eyebrow tutorial showing you how I fill in my brows everyday! I've been doing this for a good while now so I fill my brows in pretty quickly each morning, it just takes practise. 

Everybody's eyebrow shapes are very different so your routine may vary but I just wanted to share a few tips and tricks I've learnt along the way!

Brow time!

I always start by brushing up my brows making sure they are looking neat and tidy. This is the point where I like to look for any stray hairs and pluck them away. 

Next I will mark out where my brows need a little filling in.. 

I always start by taking my brush and lining it up with the side of my nose right up to the start of my eyebrow, this where you want to begin filling in the front from.

To find out where your arch should be, again line up your brush against the side of you nose and place it on a diagonal, the brush should cross directly across your iris. Here is where you fill in your arch.

(FYI I'm looking away here so it's not going through my iris, but I'm already aware of where my arch should be)

Finally line up your brush with the edge of your nose and the outer corner of your eye and up to the brow bone, this is where your brow should end.

For the front part of my brow I always like to use a colour that is a little lighter, so for this I choose NYX Tame and Frame brow pomade in the shade 'Blonde'. 

My brush of choice is always a small angled detail brush.

I'll always use brush stroke motions to keep the appearance light and to appear more 'Hair' like.

For the rest of my my brows I like to use something slightly darker, using different shades can make the brows look more natural. 

I used a combination of the two matter brown shades from the Maybelline 'The Nudes' Pallette.

I will then begin to fill in my arches on the top and bottom, since my brows need a lot of attention I have to fill in the top and bottom of my brows. 

Again using light brush stroke motions to try and maintain a natural look. Be sure to fill in all the way to the end of your brow, but keep it thin and tapered on the ends!

Brow gel is a new obsession of mine! I love this one from Essence, it's a great dupe for the Benefit 'Give me Brow'. 

Brow gel is a great way of adding some subtle colour and definition to your brows and helps to keep them in place all day long!

I will brush the brow gel all the way through my brows, being careful not to brush too much through the inner part of your brows, remember we want to keep them looking a little lighter at the front!

This brow gel has little fibres that give the appearance of fuller thicker brows.

This is my before and after brows! For me brows are such an essential part of my everyday make up look they help frame your face and draws more attention to the eyes.

I love having a neat and polished brow, I have to admit my favourite products for brows is always a pomade and gel, so I would recommend trying out a few.

How do you fill in your brows? What are you favourite brow products?

Let me know!

Thanks for reading..
