#EYEBROWSONFLEEK: HOW TO SHAPE & FILL THE PERFECT BROW

I’m sure you’ve seen the selfies and makeup pics flooding Instagram accompanied with the hashtag, #EyebrowsOnFleek.

 6 NUDE LIPSTICKS PERFECT FOR WOMEN OF COLOR


Nowadays having thick, exotic-looking eyebrows is the thing. Have you ever wondered how the “Instagram eyebrow” is achieved? Well, we’ve found some of the best eyebrow pictures on Instagram and will walk you through the steps the ladies took to get those impeccable brows. 



The key to perfect eyebrows is using the correct products combined with the proper shaping technique. Though everyone doesn’t use the same method or products, some aspects of filling-in eyebrows remain the same. Before you begin filling in your brows, they should be groomed and then shaped according to the dimension of your face. 

THE STEPS
To groom your brows, brush them upwards using a spoolie and trim any long hairs. After trimming, brush the hair back down and outward. After your eyebrows have been groomed, you can now move on to shaping the brows. 



Begin by taking an eyeliner pencil or powder (your choice) and holding it alongside the bridge of your nose. Your eyebrow should start at this point. Next, place the pencil diagonally from the nostril to the outside corner of your eye to determine where the brow should end. Now look straight in the mirror and mark the highest point of your brow, or its arch.

Now that you have marked your brows you should tweeze or wax any excess hairs. For a more pronounced arch, remove hairs under the peak. Using a dark brown eyeliner or brow pomade you can then begin to “draw” your brow into the desired shape. 

After the desired shaped has been reached, fill in any sparse areas with brow powder or eyeliner pencil and then blend slightly using an angled brush or spoolie.

Now proceed to line the top of the brow with a concealer the same shade as your skin tone. Next blend the concealer upwards and outwards using an angled or flat brush.
