5 Steps to Your Best Brows

How to Do Your Eyebrows: 5 Steps to Your Best Brows

One tool that has revolutionised the art of eyebrow shaping is the brow mapping pencil. If you're unfamiliar with this game-changing product, you're in for a treat. The brow mapping pencil is the secret weapon many beauty professionals and enthusiasts use to create perfect, symmetrical brows. 

In this post, we will explore how you can use the brow mapping pencil to transform your eyebrows into a perfectly framed masterpiece for your eyes. So let's dive right in, and step up your brow game!

1. Clean Your Eyebrows with a Gentle Cleanser

Start by cleaning your eyebrows with a gentle cleanser. This crucial first step removes any oils, makeup, or dirt that may be lurking in your brows, ensuring a clean canvas for your brow mapping pencil. For optimal results, consider using one of the best eyebrow products on the market. Remember, clean and primed brows are the foundation of any great brow look.

2. Determine the Shape of Your Brows

To determine the shape of your brows, you'll need to identify three main points - the start, the arch, and the end. This is where your brow mapping pencil comes into play. You'll use it to create marks that will guide you in shaping your brows.

  1. Start: Align the brow pencil vertically from the middle of each nostril upwards. This is where your brow should start. Make a small mark here with your pencil.
  2. Arch: Next, angle the pencil from the edge of your nostril through the centre of your eye. This should be the highest point of your brow, the arch. Mark this point as well.
  3. End: Finally, angle the pencil from the edge of your nostril to the outer corner of your eye. This is where your brow should end. Mark this point too.

Remember, everyone's face is different, and what works for one person might not work for you. Play around with these points until you find a shape that you feel suits your face the best.

3. Fill In Sparse Areas Using an Eyebrow Pencil or Powder to Create a More Defined Look

Once you have your shape determined and your sparse areas filled in, it's time for the next step: defining and enhancing your brows. Here, a good quality brow pen comes handy. Unlike the heavier look that brow pencils can sometimes give, brow pens can lend a more natural, hair-like appearance to your brows.

The trick is to use the brow pen to create small, hair-like strokes, mimicking the natural direction of your eyebrow hairs. Start at the base of the brow and work your way upwards and outwards. Remember, less is more - you can always add, but it's harder to take away.

Brow pencils, on the other hand, are great for adding depth and definition. Use them to outline the bottom and top of your brows, staying as close to your natural brow line as possible. Blend with a spoolie for a softer, more natural look.

Combining the use of brow pens and brow pencils can help you achieve a fuller, well-defined, and natural-looking set of brows. Experiment with both to understand what works best for your brows.

4. Use a Spoolie Brush to Blend the Colours Together for a Natural Finish

After you have filled in your eyebrows, take a minute to step back and assess your work. If you notice any harsh lines or if the colour looks too intense, don't panic. This is where your spoolie brush comes to the rescue. 

Gently brush through your eyebrows with the spoolie, focusing on areas where the product is heavily applied. The bristles of the brush will seamlessly blend the colour, soften harsh lines and distribute the product evenly across your brows, creating a more natural finish. 

Remember, the goal is to enhance your natural eyebrows, not to make them look like they're painted on. Take your time with this step, and keep blending until you're satisfied with the look.

5. Set Your Look with Clear Brow Gel or Wax for Lasting Power

Now that you have perfectly shaped, filled, and blended eyebrows, it's time to set them in place for long-lasting wear. This is where the brow growth gel and eyebrow styling gel come into play. Brow growth gel is a magic potion that not only locks in your perfect brow look but also promotes fuller and thicker brow growth over time. 

Apply it generously across your brows and let it work its magic. On the other hand, an eyebrow styling gel keeps your brow hairs in place, providing a flawless finish that lasts all day. Its lightweight formula ensures that your brows won't feel heavy or sticky. 

Use it as the final step in your eyebrow routine and you're all set! With these two gels in your arsenal, you can achieve beautifully defined brows that look great and stay put no matter what your day has in store.

Conclusion

Perfecting your eyebrows doesn't have to be difficult. With the five simple steps outlined above, you can easily achieve salon-worthy brows in no time. When cleansing and shaping your eyebrows, opt for gentler products and methods to avoid damaging or overplucking the delicate area. 

After you've perfected your desired shape, fill in sparse areas with eyebrow pencil or powder and then blend it out with a spoolie brush. To finish the look off and ensure that it lasts throughout the day, apply a clear brow gel or wax which will also set stray hairs in place.
