Eyebrows frame the eyes and are one of the most expressible features of the face. Brows should be brushed and groomed first. Then shape and color is added with the eye pencil for the brows.
Brushing and Grooming Brows
Brush through brows with eyebrow brush to groom and shape.
Tweeze any hairs that obviously lie outside of the brow's natural shape.
Brows should begin directly over the tear duct at the inner corner of the eye and rise in a gentle curve along the brow bone. The highest point in the arch should be just about even with the outer edge of the eye's iris, tapering down and ending at the outside corner of the eye. To define the ideal brow length, line up a pencil parallel to the bridge of the nose and then at an angle across the outer edge of the eyes.
Adding Color and Shape
Eyebrow pencils put color into brows that are colorless, correct brow shape, and fill in sparse areas.
Eyebrows should be a shade similar to the hair. Look for an eyebrow pencil in a natural shade to compliment the hair color.
Use the natural brow shape as your guide. Enhance it without changing its fundamental shape. The brow should be soft with no peaks. A pointed or thin brow creates a harsh and/or surprised look.
Fill in shape with eye color. Draw upward following the direction the hair grows and the natural curve of the brow. Use light handed, fine strokes.
