The Art of the Eyebrow
Good eyebrows are vital to having a good makeup day. Thick and full is in, but not everyone has been blessed with Lily Collins-esque brows, so we say fake it til you make it. Luckily there are amazing green beauty products available to help you do just that.
Depending on what your level of brow help requires you have a ton of options to choose from. But what everyone needs in their arsenal without a doubt is a good brush/spooly combo and a colored brow pencil, powder, wax, or all three! The Defining Brush from EcoBrow is a tiny little stick of magic. The brush end is thin with short and sturdy bristles, so you can get precision shaping and a natural wispie hair look. The spooly end helps soften and blend in color while also helping to tame any rogue hairs. This brush works well with any type of brow product.
For those of you that prefer a pencil, the alima PURE Natural Definition Brow Pencil is where it's at! It's soft and creamy but also matte formula glides on effortlessly and easily blends in and up to fill in the brows. This option is perfect for the beginner as it is easy to handle and to clean up and start over if you happen to make a mistake. If you need a little more color or maybe a little more definition and hold you can't go wrong with a wax. EcoBrow delivers in this area as well, with a variety colors that are heavily pigmented, even someone with the lightest and sparsest of brow can achieve a bold and full brow. For those that might prefer a powder but still need something keep unruly brows in place we recommend 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Eye Brow Powder Gel.
- Trim rogue brows with brow scissors, but do not trim too short.
- Arch your brow over your brow bone, not over your pupil.
- Your brow should start in line with the inner corner of your eye.
- When filling in your brows do not make the start too dark, it should be lighter than the rest of the brow to achieve that blended gradient look.
- When blending your brow color use soft and light upward strokes to mimic hairs natural growth pattern.
