I’ve been using the brow perfector in Suriname and the Oural brow gel for a while and I’ve been very pleased with them. Since my brows are very different, due to scars, I created a tutorial for each of my brows so you can see how I fill them in.
This is actually the way my aesthetician suggests that my brows be filled. She does not do the 3 points in the typical fashion. She goes off of the inner corner of the eye, rather than the nose / nostril because everyone’s nose is shaped differently. For hooded eyes like mine, she does not recommend a sharp arch, so she suggests following the natural curve of the brow along the bottom side. She also recommends ending the brow by following the line from your lower lash line up, the same line you use for a cat eye flick.
1. Naked brows, brushed up.
2. Draw a line along the bottom of your brows.
3. Draw a line along the top of your brows.
4. Fill in the brows the rest of the way. Use a spoolie to blend the brow pencil.
5. Finish with brow gel.
“Using small hair-like strokes, follow the natural growth of the eyebrows. Start off lightly on the inner corner and concentrate the color towards the center. After the arch start to soften the strokes again for a perfectly defined looking brow.” –Niko Lopez, National Makeup Stylist
“To make the brow look lifted comb the hairs straight up and then slick the tips back down.” –Jason Hoffman, Lead Trainer
