Pencil, crayon, powder, felt tip liner? What kind of product do you use to enhance your eyebrows?
Why You May Need Eyebrow Makeup
Eyebrows are such an important part of your ability to express emotion and convey expression.
- A raised eyebrow
- A frown
- A look of surprise
All these are conveyed with your brows. Look at the Mona Lisa, notice how she has an enigmatic expression. It’s impossible to read her face as she is without brows (it was the fashion trend at the time to pluck them out).
This is why if your brows are sparse or fading away, putting a little powder or pencil on them will really make a huge difference to your face.
Eyebrows are the frame for your eyes – the bring attention to them.
Tips on Selecting the Right Makeup Products for Your Eyebrows
In the video above I discuss some of the common brow products you could consider.
Brow powder – great if you have sparse brows that you want to make look a touch darker or thicker
Brow pencils – work well and fill in where brows have gone missing – use short strokes to imitate hair
Brow Felt Tip liner – a newer version of the brow pencil and really easy to use.
Fast and Easy Eyebrow Tutorial
Below is a video with tips on applying eyebrow – a fast and easy eyebrow tutorial.
I’ll always remember a training program I was running when one younger student (in her 20s who had strong eyebrows naturally) mentioned that she’d never think about using a brow product. I showed her by applying one eyebrow with a pencil to my brow, just what a difference an eyebrow product can make – she suddenly saw how having a defined brow brought attention to the eyes.
