Basic Brow Tutorial

Hi readers!! Someone requested that I do a tutorial on how I do my brows. I am not an expert on this but I want to share with you my own tips (which I know you have heard or even watched from other youtube gurus out there.. :D) 
To start off, I want to share with you my untidy brows. hehe I do not have that beautiful arched brows. Some really like their brows thinner because it is easier to work with thin brows rather than bushy ones. I even saw a tutorial showing that they trim their brows. I, on the other want to keep that bushyness (err... almost unkempt look) by not trimming it. I always think that thick brows give you that virginal and innocent look. haha. yes, i still have that perception that those women with thin brows look older. However, I also want that arch that really gives you a more defined look. So how do I reconcile them? 


First tip: GROOM IT!! Groom your brows but try not to over pluck.

Second: Outline your brows with a light hand. 


Apply your eyebrow pencil or your brow powder in a feathering strokes. You must apply it lightly or else it will be really hard to blend and will create a conspicuous outline of your brows. I use my Nichido Eybrow Pencil. I love this brow pencil. It stays on till the end of the day on me. Before, I love using brow powder found in brow kits but I discovered that using a pencil in creating an outline is easier.
Then, with a thick angled brush 
(i got mine for 15 pesos, I cut the bristles and voila the perfect brow brush!!:D )
Fill in your brows with a brow powder or eyeshadow that matches your brow color. 


I am using Avon Simply Pretty's Brow Powder in Brown. The color is just perfect for brow shading. It does not look reddish at all. I am using brown although my hair color is black since it looks more natural. I saw a  girl sporting that black brow shadow and damn it looks so Morticia Adam-ish. It looks so fake.. Or probably she just forgot to blend them properly. The key in filling your brows is blending!! what else right? As you can see in the picture above, I extend in shading the inner part of my brows to get that thicker and more natural look. 




Lastly, you can also apply a concealer on your brow bone to highlight your brows further.
You can also use a clear mascara to keep your brows in place but I find this unnecessary since my brows are well behaved. :D 
Here is a comparison of my brows.. So who say you can't achieve that arch even without over plucking? hehe


Here is a quick video tutorial so you can see better how I did this look:

  2. Love it! I only pluck a little bit! My brows started growing again and this one hair on the arch grew in a different direction so I cut it instead of plucking it! because if I pluck it, that area will be bald. *sigh why are eyebrows so annoying?

  5. i can't really tell if the scent lingers for so so long. it's just the initial application when you really smell it and even taste it. it's kind of like you eventually get used to the smell and don't notice it afterwards.

    i personally bought it because i'm a sucker for cute packaging. lol but after trying it, i would really much rather use my nivea one (or carmex) especially if my lips are super dry. i find that one to be more hydrating than eos.
