EYEBROW MASTERCLASS


EYEBROWS ARE HAVING A MOMENT IT IS ALL ABOUT THE BROW !AS A MAKE UP ARTIST MOST QUESTIONS I GET ASKED ARE BROW RELATED. AS YOU GET OLDER EYEBROWS START TO DISAPPEAR NOT JUST THE SHADE AS THE COLOUR FADES BUT ALSO THE SHAPE AND DEFINITION. PAST TRENDS HAVE CAUSED US TO OVER PLUCK AND HORMONES CAUSE BROWS TO FALL OUT AND NEVER GROW BACK. CERTAINLY MY OWN BROWS HAVE GOT SHORTER AND FINISH MIDWAY SO MY BROWS NEED ATTENTION AS PART OF MY DAILY ROUTINE.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BROWS CANNOT BE UNDERPLAYED THEY FRAME YOUR FACE MAKE YOUR EYES LOOK CLEARER AND THE LENGTHEN OF BROWS CAN MAKE YOUR EYES LOOK WIDER.

THE TREND RIGHT NOW IS FOR LOW ARCH , THICK CLEARLY DEFINED DARKER BROWS. SO TODAY WE ARE GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW TO ACHIEVE THIS IN OUR MASTERCLASS.

TOOLS

Tools

FIRST LETS GATHER ALL OUR TOOLS

  • EYEBROW STENCILS (EYELURE £4.95)
  • TWEEZERS (I LOVE TWEEZERMAN FROM £19.95)
  • MAGNIFYING MIRROR
  • PENCIL SHARPENER
  • BROW BRUSH AND COMB
  • SMALL ANGLED WEDGED BRUSH
  • EYE PENCIL (I USE CHANEL LE CRAYON SOURCILS 40 £23)WHICH HAS A SPOOLIE ON THE END
  • POMADE (ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS £19)
  • GEL (LEGENDARY BROWS TILBURY £18.50)
  • HIGHLIGHTER PENCIL

COLOUR

IN THE PAST THE ADVICE WAS ALWAYS TO MATCH YOUR HAIR COLOUR BUT THE CURRENT TREND IS TO GO A SHADE DARKER . EXCEPTION IS IF YOU HAVE BLACK HAIR YOUR BROWS SHOULD BE A SHADE LIGHTER. BEWARE IF YOU HAVE BLONDE HAIR AS BROWN TEND TO LOOK REDDISH ON FAIR BROWS SO I WOULD TEND TO GO FOR A DARKER GREYISH TONE.

SHAPE

TAKE THE EYEBROW PENCIL AND HOLD IT PERPENDICULAR AT THE WIDEST PART OF YOUR NOSE THIS WILL INDICATE WHERE YOUR BROWS SHOULD START SO MARK A POINT WITH THE PENCIL. KEEPING THE BASE OF THE PENCIL WHERE IT IS SWING IT TO THE CENTRE OF YOUR IRIS THIS WILL INDICATE WHERE THE ARCH SHOULD BE. MARK WITH ANOTHER DOT. SWING THE PENCIL TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE EYE THIS IS WHERE THE BROW SHOULD END. MARK THIS POINT. TRICK: IF YOU EXTEND YOUR BROW A LIITLE LONGER PAST THIS POINT CAN REALLY WIDEN SMALL EYES.

NOW CHOOSE THE STENCIL SHAPE YOU PREFER . I CHOOSE SLIM ARCH AS IT IS CLOSEST TO MY OWN BROW. STARTING WITH THE FIRST DOT. HOLD TH STENCIL STILL AS YOU COLOUR IN THE BASE COLOUR WITH THE PENCIL. ENSURING YOUR PENCIL IS SHARPENED TO GIVE LIGHT FEATHERY STROKES. ADJUST OR EXTEND THE LENGTH TO THE FINAL DOT.

Stencilling

TIDY

US THE BROW BRUSH TO BLEND THEN BRUSH BROWS UPWARDS. FOR COMPLETELY DEFINED BROWS YOU MAY NEED TO TRIM ANY LOOSE HAIRS OUSIDE OF YOUR NEW SHAPE. TWEEZE BELOW THE BROW OUTSIDE OF THE SHAPE. IT IS OPTIONAL IF YOU FEEL YOU NEED TO PLUCK ABOVE THE SHAPE IF YOU HAVE HAD THEM THREADED PREVIOUSLY YOU WILL PROBABLY NEED TO DO THIS. IT DOES GIVE A CLEAN LINE. USE YOUR MAGNIFYING MIRROR TO ENSURE YOU HAVE ALL THE STRAY HAIRS.

FILL

NOW TAKE THE POMADE WHICH IS A WAXY COLOUR AND YOUR SMALL ANGLED BRUSH. USING SMALL UPWARD STROKES COLOUR IN OVER THE PENCIL TO GIVE A PRECISE LONGER LASTING FINISH. USE THE SPOOLIE IF YOU GO OUTSIDE OF THE LINE TO CORRECT MISTAKES.

FINISH

USE A SETTING GEL TO FINISH AND SET THE EYEBROWS OR EVEN A SMALL AMOUT OF HAIRSPRAY ON THE BROW COMB AND COMBED THROUGH. THIS WILL ENSURE BEAUTIFUL BROWS ALL DAY !!!

TRICK: I LIKE TO DRAW A SMALL HIGHLIGHTER PENCIL AROUND THE BROW TO GIVE THEM A NICE EDGE. IF ANY OF YOU INVESTED IN THE NYX WONDER PENCIL MENTIONED IN MY PREVIOUS BLOG THIS CLEAR LIP PENCIL IS PERFECT FOR THIS.

SPARSE BROWS

THERE ARE MANY PRODUCTS AVAILABLE TO FILL IN BROWS CONTAINING FIBRES TO BUILD ON THE HAIRS ALREADY THERE. WUNDERBROW FIBRE FILLER £19.95 IS VERY GOOD.

TATOO BROW BY MAYBELLINE £7.65 IS A PEEL OFF GEL TINT THAT LASTS FOR 3 DAYS AVAILABLE IN DARK BLONDE, MEDIUM BROWN AND DARK BROWN.

FOR A MORE PERMANENT FINISH MICROBLADING IS THE BEST OPTION IT LAST BETWEEN 1-3 YEARS. A TATOOING TECHNNIQUE WHERE SEMI PERMANENT COLOUR IS TATOOED USING HAIR LIKE .STROKES. FROM £200 UPWARDS.

SO GIRLS (AND BOYS!) NO EXCUSES FOR IMPERFECT BROWS ……GET PRACTISING.
