Makeup* your eyebrows!

9 Sep

 My last post was all about eyebrows, and how important they are in framing your face. Not everyone needs to have statement brows like Jennifer Connolly or Camilla Belle but just see the difference between a happy medium See Gwen Stefani – Nuff said.

 

 

Thicker statement eyebrows have been on trend for a while now so it is refreshing to see that the high arch will be back for autumn winter 11 – I know did you ever think there would be an eyebrow trend?

You cannot just follow trends if they do not go with your face shape but you can use makeup to pretend or try it out!

First off, once you have had your eyebrows threaded and it has left you with your perfect brow shape  (See previous post here)  you will need to know a little bit about how to contour your face with Makeup.

When focussing on the eyebrows you need to know that the area underneath the end of the eyebrow needs to be highlighted – When putting on my eyeshadow I start with MAC Vanilla shimmer pot as a base for other makeup – Then when I am finished I will put an extra bit just on that area under the eyebrow so it is uber prominent! I will show a step by step in my next post! x

I have a massive crush on Kim Kardashians’ Makeup face. Its always perfectly applicated (it could possibly look too polished day to day- but I still love it) and this photo shows exactly the right places that should be highlighted and where should be shaded darker. If you think about where your bones are prominent on your face such as you cheekbone and under your eyebrow bone your on the right track!! * hint* This also helps with where you put your bronzer/ blusher I.E. NEVER a pink stripe  on the top of your cheekbones! TOO HIGH! It can be blended up like the below 🙂

Her eyebrow has been shaded with an angled makeup brush to give the perfect shape and long line at the end. Therefore if you want to recreate this look you need to get the right tools!

If you have unruly brows you need an eyebrow brush – Any old mascara wand will do or if you fancy a treat the Dior brush has a lovely shape and handle! After you have tamed your brows you may want to put a lick of clear mascara on top; this is only for quite long eyebrows that never want to stay in your perfect shape!

The Bobbi Brown eyebrow brush has thick bristles so if you put a little brown powder (eye makeup will do as long as its the same if not darker shade than your own brow colour) and work the brush over the eyebrows it will colour them in without staining the skin under your eyebrows – this can happen when people use an eyebrow pencil straight onto their skin! And its not a good look!  If you fancy an even more perfect eyebrow shape put a bit of brown eyeliner/ eyebrow pencil on the back of your hand and blend with a brown eyeshadow – using the angled brush create the shape you want to! Simples!

    […] I LOVE big thick eyebrows and in every possible opportunity I will paint on some massive ones in a photoshoot as I think they are bold, difficult to perfect (from a Makeup artist point of view) and can change the whole look of someones’ face – See one of my previous posts! *Makeup your Eyebrows!* […]
