I was browsing through a magazine, when I ran into a close up of Miranda Kerr (my style icon), and her eyebrows struck me. I immediately wanted to shape mine just like them. Straight across, no arch, full and long. Her eyebrows are the main focus of her face, and that was what I was trying to achieve. In retrospective, maybe I should have consulted with a brow artist before plucking away, but no-patience Nicholl took the plunge with the tweezers. Thankfully, this is one of the few times such an instance turned out as planned. (unlike when I took scissors to my bangs…)
1. With my BrowGal Tweezers, I tweezed the arch out of the top of the brow, and cleaned up under. I don't wax, so I tweeze the excess hairs every couple days before filling in.
2. I have been using The BrowGal pencil (in chocolate) to fill in. First, I use the comb on the end to brush upwards to create fullness.
3. Then, I outline my brow. I create a "stencil" around it. I only fill in the inner ends and outer ends.
4. This is where I create length during my stenciling process. I draw out the pencil a little past the outer corner of my eyes, and then fill in.
5. I highlight the bottom and top of my brow. This step is everything. I didn't know the effects of highlighting until recently, and now I can't live without it.
6. Lastly, to keep your brows intact throughout the day, I use a wax pencil over them. You can also use gel. This ensures that all hairs stay in place, and that your brows look strong and fierce 24 hours.
