I’ve had a lot of inquiry lately on how I’ve been doing my brows. I really like this look of ombre brows because it’s much more natural than filling in the entire brow (especially when you don’t have any brows to start out with) but it still gives your face that extra definition. AND it’s super easy— Triple win!
Ombre Brows How to:
- Start with your eye area primed and if you wear foundation, have that already applied as well.
- Take a creamy pencil that you want the darkest part of your brow to be.
- Draw on the outer 1/3-1/2 of your brow with your pencil. This doesn’t have to be precise, but try to not make it any thicker than you want your brow to be. Bonus: If you stop at this step, you’ll probably have some pretty good clown eyebrows!
- Take a clean angled brush, and in small, smooth strokes, slowly start drawing your brows down towards your nose. The brush will take the pigment from the half brow you already drew spread it out, creating an ombre effect. Keep doing this until you’re satisfied with the look.
- Smooth out any smudges or bumps, and you’re done!
- Play around with shades! When I’m working with clients who already have brows (okay—everybody), I usually go for a pencil that’s about two shades darker than their natural brow. However, the exact shade you choose is totally personal preference, so please experiment until you find the colour that suits you best.
- Don't be afraid of colour! For a fun look, use a colour (or two) in place of your regular brow colour. If you have no or light brows, you can choose pretty much any colour—for those of you with darker brows, try a deep emerald, plum, or navy.
See, I told you it was easy!
