I hope all of you are having a lovely and makeup-filled week ?✨
This is another one of my artworks about makeups! I carved an eyebrow tutorial onto a linoleum block. I thought it’d be cool to share my drugstore brow routine with you all!
- Step 1 is to pluck any stray hairs. I always remove any lil hairs that are growing out of my eyebrow shape. I do this until I’m able to get my brows done, which is usually once a month because my brows are rather sparse. I never pluck any hair from the brow itself. I trust my brow guy with all my heart, so I just try to keep his masterpiece in check.
- Step 2 is to fill in the brow with an eyebrow pencil. I start filling in my brow in the middle and go down into the tail of my brow. I apply more pressure towards the tail to define it and less pressure at the beginning so it doesn’t look harsh. I create hair-like strokes. It’s helpful to draw a line under the brow and draw in an upwards motion. I try to keep my brows looking fairly natural; bold brows are not my thing. My preferred eyebrow pencils are the wet n wild Color Icon Brow Pencil in Brunettes Do It Better and the e.l.f. cosmetics Instant Lift Brow Pencil in Neutral Brown.
- Step 3 is to lock in the brow with an eyebrow mascara. One of the most important things to do in makeup is to set products. For example, you use powder to set a cream contour, foundation and concealer. Same goes for brows. Eyebrow pencils and powders must be set with an eyebrow gel or mascara. The only drugstore eyebrow mascara I’ve tried is the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in Soft Brown. The wand is a lil weird — it has a ball-like shape at the beginning. (I can review this for you all soon!) It keeps my brows in place allllllll day.
- Step 4 is to clean up the brow. I tend to make a small mess when I fill in my brows. I usually use a makeup wipe (as shown in the pictorial) because I fill in my brows before applying any sort of makeup product. Cleaning up your brows the same concealer you use to highlight your under eye area is also okay — I tried this recently and it lifts the brow nicely. It’s just a matter of preference.
I hope you all enjoyed this lil eyebrow pictorial! If you’d like more, please let me know in the comments below! Also, don’t be afraid to request reviews of any of the products I mentioned.
