So, what needs to be done to get your best brow? What fixes do you need to do? read on.....

 

BROW FIX #1  GAPS AND HOLES

 

GAPS NEED A PENCIL FIX

Nothing fills in a brow gap better than a pencil. All it really does is make the skin look like the same color of the brow and viola. Gap gone. Oh, and in photos? You won't even be able to tell. TIP: Brow shadow will not make gaps and holes disappear in a photo. Powder is not strong enough to hide it. What makes a pencil work? It's the wax in the pencil that does it.

The only thing to figure out is what KIND of pencil. Yep. There's tons of types of pencils now to choose from.

 

  1. BE PRECISE

A precision brow pencil has a super thin, narrow lead that makes the pencil strokes look exactly like hair. If you want a super natural look, this is the way to go. Trick is to apply the pencil in the same direction of hair growth so it matches, and then blend lightly with a super soft spoolie so it looks natural, not like makeup. Try my fav elke® spoolie, made super soft just for this purpose.

TIP: Regular spoolies can be too hard and will only remove the pencil, not blend it. Plus it can be irritating to sensitive skin.

 2. BROW PENCIL? THINK GEL INSTEAD

For a stronger fill and holding power, try a gel waterproof brow pencil. Lasts literally all day and will not budge. I've seen in last through humid New York summer months, hot yoga and a swim at the pool....  Same technique, but you'll find the gel pencil puts on color but not in a hair like stroke. It's a softer look and you can blend it with a spoolie as well.. but after 1 minute, the color will be set.

TIP: Brow Gel Pencils are great for oily skin, and if you just don't want to touch up your brows during the day.

3. BROW SHADOW IN A PENCIL

Didn't realize that existed did you. Introducing the Brow Blender Pencil. Yep. It's brow shadow in a pencil form.

If you're tired of your brows looking like your grandmother's... try a shadow. It's softer, lighter, easier to apply and yep, in a pencil form to make it even easier. Just draw on, blend and go. It even makes your brows look thicker. Ours is even waterproof... What I love is how easy it is to blend and shade. The spoolie brush on the end makes it blend perfectly. And go light handed on the application. It will make blending easier and look more natural.

TIP: If a pencil doesn't look right, it's usually the application of it. Go with a lighter stroke and blend down. If you don't like you can easily blend it off and try it again. If you apply a pencil too heavily, it's really hard to blend and even harder to get off. Makeup artist tip is to always go lighter and build up if needed. Makes makeup application sooo much easier.
