Tutorial Friday: Brow Maintenance

Tutorial Friday: Brow Maintenance

posted on: 3.15.2013

Brows are arguably the most important feature on a person's face. They do, after all, frame the face. My biggest pet peeve is seeing someone made up real pretty, but they neglect their brows. It ruins the whole look for me! Don't underestimate the power of the brow. I did for the first seventeen years of my life, and have definitely learned my lesson. For this week's tutorial, I'm showing you how to easily maintain your brows and what products I use on my brows on a daily basis. Please note that this is not a tutorial on how to shape your brows, just how to trim them and fill them in. Onwards and upwards!
  1. Take a spoolie brush (or a comb- whatever your heart desires) and brush your brow hairs straight up. 
  2. Any brow hair that is sticking above where you're going to fill in your brows is going to be cut. I like using the Tweezerman scissors from Wednesday's post for my brows the best.
    Step that I forgot to include: At this point I also tweeze any little hairs below my brow that are growing out. After an intense week of classes, my brain is fried and I apparently forgot to include the picture of me tweezing my brows. My apologies! But I don't really think you need a picture to know what I'm talking about!
  3. Now it's time to fill in the brows. Depending on how lazy I'm feeling, I'll use anything from an eyeshadow to a pencil to fill in my brows. When I'm in a rush, I use a brow pencil. When I have more time, I use an eyeshadow (MAC Brut). When I know I'll be sweating or going to the pool or beach, I use a waterproof cream, like Makeup Forever's Aqua Brow.
    To fill in the brows, I line the top half of the brow, then the bottom half of the brow (I really hope that makes sense). Then I fill in the empty spots in between the parts I lined first. I don't really fill in the first 1/3 of my brow because that part of my brow is pretty full on its own. The sparse areas I have are from the arch to the end.
  4. Once you're done filling in your brows, I like to ensure that my brow hairs stay in place with a tinted brow gel. I use Anastacia's Tinted Brow Gel in Espresso.
And that's it! It's pretty simple once you get the hang of it. I hope I accurately described each step. I'm still trying to get the hang of picture tutorials! If you need any clarification, please don't hesitate to comment below and I'll try my best to clarify things for you. Have a great weekend!
