Tips to Enhance Your Eyebrows

Anastasia Brow Pen
The unforgettable saying upon getting your makeup done at the counter – “I love a bold brow!” What does this mean, and why does every makeup artist insist that a bold brow is better? Well, for one, thin brows are out and have been since the 1920’s. Second and most importantly, they shape and define the face and eyes. Transparent eyebrows are the quickest area to spot when wearing full eye makeup. It’s obvious that something is missing. With that said, here are my quick tips to achieving that bold brow.

1. If you’re not used to coloring your eyebrows, start small by providing the main arch at least. Focus on the top of the eyebrow arch, and to get your point across, add a few stray hairs in the beginning, middle and end. Finish your brow by blending with a clean mascara wand or toothbrush.

2. For a touch more emphasis, use a stencil and fill in where appropriate with powder. Benefit makes a powder, or you can even use a matte brown eyeshadow.

3. To define your brow even further, try using Anastasia’s brow pen. Urban Decay makes one as well. However, I like Anastasia’s universal deep shade as it has a bit of auburn in it. Use a mascara wand to blend and comb brows into shape. Finish with brow gel to keep them in place.

4. Finally, see your local esthetician and get threaded. Threading is the best option when you want to shape your eyebrows. If your brow is in bad shape, bear the embarrassment and let it grow out for as long as you can manage. Then, let the professional do your brow shaping for you. Apart from “the pain” (this depends on your threshold of pain, I myself don’t think it’s as bad as the hype it gets), once you get threaded, you will be hooked!

Fabulous info! Plus, another tip is to take a picture of yourself after a beauty professional has drawn them in for you. That way, you can re-create the look at home. This comment has been removed.
