Everyone wants to know how to create the “perfect” brows. What to use, what technique, etc. Well let me tell you love, there are literally SO many freaking ways to do your brows I’d rather just shave mine off and start a new trend. Might be easier that way.
Ok kidding but today I’ll be giving you a step by step guide on how to get your brows to look amazing and frame that gorgeous face of yours! These tips and tricks are meant for beginners, so please don’t hesitate to send me an email or leave a comment below if you have any questions.
Find your brow shade. Make sure that the brow shade you’re choosing is going to match either the hair on your head, or the actual brow hairs themselves. This is based on your own personal preference, so do you babe.
This actually isn’t like a step but a recommendation. I highly recommend that if you’re just starting to get into filling in your brows, start with a powder product. It’s easy to blend out if you go in a little too harsh and it’s (in my opinion) the easiest to apply to your brows. Once you get filling in your brows down, then I think you’re ready for pencils and pomades. Make sure to get a nice thin and angled brush that will pick up the product nicely and distribute through the hairs evenly.
Favorite Brow Brushes:
Brush your brow hairs in an upward direction with the spoolie end (the end of the brush with a mascara wand looking thing) This allows you to get a clear visual of the natural shape of your eyebrow and how you want to outline them.
Dip the angled end of your brush into your brow powder. Tap the excess against the side of the palette to get rid of some of the excess, and slowly feather in the color onto your brows. The idea is to try your best to follow the natural shape of your brow structure so that you get the best results suited for your face. Of course if you want to make them appear thinner or thicker, that’s your prerogative. I like to start at the underneath of my brows and flick the brush upward to mimic my natural hairs and the direction that they’re going. This will take a few tries, but I don’t think it will take you guys long to get the hang of this! Stay strong! 🙂
If you like a more natural looking brow, skip to step 6. Otherwise, now that you’ve defined the brow shape underneath and taken your spoolie through the brow hairs to occasionally brush them out to blend the powder, take the same spoolie brush and now brush the top of your brows in a downward direction. This is the same technique we use for the bottom outline of your brows, except on the top. You’re wanting to get a clear look at how you are going to shape your brows, so by doing this we can see the space that should be filled. Apply a little more brow powder to the angled part of the brush, and lightly outline your shape. Flick the brush downwards to blend with what you’ve already done so far.

Apply your favorite brow gel to hold all the hairs in place and to give them a little volume. This step really brings them to life giving them an even more natural appearance. Now for step 7.
JUST kidding you’re done!
