brush through the brows & determine the shape
To determine your brow’s natural shape, brush brow hair upward in the direction of growth using the spoolie brush on The BrowGal Skinny Eyebrow Pencil. Eyebrows usually fall into one of three categories: an arch, an arc, or a straight brow. If you’re unsure of what your natural brow shape is for any reason (over-plucking, memory loss, too much wine) refer back to a childhood photo where it all began.
Brush through your brows with the spoolie brush and look carefully at both brows to see how they are different. Brows are sisters, not twins…but we like to dress them alike. Imagine they are like scales. The goal is to balance them while still keeping them bold and face-defining.
create your baseline
Starting at the point closest to the nose, create your “baseline.” This is the innermost eyebrow point on top and bottom. This point is directly parallel to your nose. You can even put your pencil along the nose and make a mark where your brows should start. Remember that your baseline is a guideline for both of your eyebrows. It has to be as level as possible when you look at both brows. You do not want to have one higher than the other. That will just make you look crazy.
start penciling in
Following the top of the baseline you created, mimic the same shape for the top of your brow, intersecting at the tail of the eyebrow. Ensure your BrowGal Skinny Eyebrow Pencil is freshly sharpened and able to create short, precise strokes. This will better emulate the look of real hair. Brush through the brows to blend and ensure a natural look. Repeat this step on the bottom of your brow, intersecting the two lines at the tail.
continue to fill in
After you have created the outline of your brow, fill in the middle with short, precise strokes to obtain your desired fullness. Comb through the brows again, and take one final look to decide whether any areas have been over-blended. Fill in any sparse or blurred areas to better define the shape.
Once you have your brows filled in, this is the time to remove a little bit of overgrowth. You can do this with scissors and tweezers. Brush your brows with the spoolie brush in the direction that hair grows. This will ensure you don’t take any chunks of hair out! Starting at the top of your brows, slowly trim hairs that fall outside of your shape, with the scissors flush against the skin. Less is more! You can always trim more later. Repeat this same step on top and on bottom of your brow.
Then go in with the tweezers to tweeze any remaining hairs you can’t get with the scissors that fall outside of your shape. Make sure you use The BrowGal Tweezers that are designed to get under the hairs and grab them from the root without any breakage. Always tweeze in a straight line. One hair at a time. Repeat this same step on top and on bottom of your brow.
Now accentuate your perfect new brows using The BrowGal Highlighter Pencil. Apply the matte side underneath the brow starting at the baseline, stopping at near center and close to highest point of brow and then continuing again toward the smallest outer point of brow. Apply the highlighter about 1 milimeter below your brow hair and blend with your finger or a brush. Flip the pencil over and use the shimmer end for a different look. This can even be applied directly over the matte color you just applied or on its own. Repeat on both brows.
