Here are some handy tips I’ve pick up over the years for shaping your brows.
- You hold a pencil straight against your nose on the right and no hair should be on the left side of it
- You then move the pencil diagonally from the base of your nose across your pupil, this is where the highest point of your brow should be
- You hold the pencil against your nose diagonally just under your eye and no hair should be below the pencil
I use this system as a guide when tweezing or applying brow make up. It will just give me a general idea of where to fill in or where to take from.
Obviously everyone naturally has a different brow so you can’t manufacture a completely different shape than what you have but this can act as a handy guide!
Mostly I use a brow pencil, an old rimmel one I have, and NARS brow gel. The brow gel is clear it just keeps my shape groomed, I really like it.
There are much better brow products on the market and powders do look much better than pencil but for day to day make up I just think the pencil is quick and easy. For special occasions I use Benefit Brow Zing.
