Eyebrow Makeup

We spend a lot of time making sure our eyebrows have that perfect shape we all desire. Sometimes eyebrow makeup is usually the forgotten product in the makeup regimen. When using the correct eyebrow product and eyebrow color, anyone can have perfect eyebrows.

You must learn how to pick the best eyebrow color and eyebrow products.

Eyebrow Pencil: The eyebrow pencil is the most common product to use on ones eyebrows. However it can look harsh, so be sure to have a sharp point for easier application. For a more natural look, use short soft strokes and remember to blend with a firm eyebrow brush.

Eyebrow Powder: Brow powder is always a matte powder with high color pigments. You can also use an eye shadow that is matte and matches your hair color. Eyebrow powder provides the most natural look. Apply with an angle eye brush and with light strokes. Blend with an eyebrow brush.

Eyebrow Gel: Brow gel comes in clear or color formulas. It is only necessary if you have unruly eyebrows. If you use the clear formula, fill in prior with an eyebrow pencil or powder and apply the gel on top.
Sometimes it can be hard to figure out the exact color you should use on your eyebrows.

How To Apply Pencil Eyeliner:

First you need a eyeliner pencil, and a pencil sharpener.
Next you must prepare the skin with a layer of foundation over the eyelids to help the eyeliner go on smoothly, although this is not essential.
Try using a silicon based eyeliner pencil as it will glide on easily and last for a long time.

Work from the inner corner of each upper eyelid and move outwards along the roots of your eyelashes with several short strokes. Smudge this first layer with a finger to soften the look and cover any thin skin on your eyelid.

Add a second line for more definition, again drawing along the roots of the upper lashes and covering the entire length of the eyelid.

Next, draw a line along the roots of the lower lashes, stopping halfway along and working from the outer corner inwards.

We all admire the eye cat look -For a ‘cat eye’ look, flick the outer corner of the eyeliner with your thumb so that it wings outwards.
Start the line in the centre of your top lid, then draw the line in little connected dashes; it's easier and avoids stretching the skin. Make the line thicker towards the outer corner of the eye.
Try to think of drawing the line on to the bottom of the lashes rather than the eyelid.
Only start the line from the inner corner of the lids if your eyes are quite large.
If your eyes droop slightly, or just for a nice effect, curl the line upwards slightly at the corner of the upper lid.
