Don’t walk around with “angry” eyebrows. If you’re guilty of neglecting your brows, we urge you to repent. If you only ever read one article about mastering the finishing touches of your makeup, it should be on how to do your eyebrows. Or at least we think so!
How to Do Natural Eyebrows
You don’t have to be born with great eyebrows to transform them into a more natural-looking set. For starters, any stray hairs with unibrow ambitions need to go. You can pluck or wax these. If you have sparse, patchy eyebrows, we recommend applying the eyebrow-powder-and-pencil duo Maybelline Brow Satin for fuller, natural-looking brows.
How to Do Thick Eyebrows
Start off by brushing your eyebrows upwards with a spoolie brush (a great eyebrow-shaping tool!). Fill in any sparse areas with a pencil and follow up with an angled brush and matching powder to define your brows. Brush again and seal the deal with coloured gel. A lick of translucent powder around the edges will help to define the shape of your brow. To thin out overly thick brows, avoid excessive tweezing. Instead, map out their look with a brow pencil before you start plucking.
Smudge-proof and waterproof NYX Professional Makeup Tame & Frame Brow Pomade Chocolate is a must for harnessing, enhancing and styling thick brows.
How to do the New Eyebrow Look
The inside of your eyebrows should ideally line up with the outer edges of your nostrils. Place a pencil from your nostrils at 45 degrees to find out where the brow’s outer end should be. We recommend the versatile brow-enhancing L’Oréal Paris Brow Genius Dark to create striking, natural-looking brows. We also love the precise, thickening L’Oréal Paris Brow Plumper to help you gain full control over your brows.
How to do Bold Eyebrows
You can finally achieve tamed, but standout brows by using the softening, natural-looking NYX Professional Makeup Tinted Brow Mascara. This one product accentuates your brows and avoids noticeable residue. It gives you the power to do brows your way.
Scrawny stick-brows or thick, clown-like brows will likely never be in fashion. Use these tips to craft eyebrows that match your face, personality and the occasion you are styling them for.
