Last weekend, I decided to do an eyebrow tutorial for people with no eyebrows. Unfortunately, the good eyebrow gene skipped over me and so I pretty much have no eyebrows.
Not to worry though… with a little bit of makeup and this eyebrow tutorial, you can look like you have eyebrows too!
The Eyebrow Tutorial:

It turns out that my perfect eyebrow pencil (after searching high and low) is a 5$ Rimmel pencil from Walmart. I use the color, “hazel” which seems to match my eyebrow color pretty well. I also like the consistency of the pencil, meaning that it isn’t too hard or too soft. It’s pretty much a killer deal for 5 dollars. The downside is that Walmart is usually sold out of this pencil. In other words, if you see it, buy it; you may not get another chance.
I’ve found that the key to using an eyebrow pencil, is to make sure it is really sharp before you start. I like to outline what would be the natural line if my eyebrows if I had them. I always think it is best to go with the natural flow of your face, if possible. Use short, quick strokes to complete the outline of your eyebrows. By outline, I mean do the bottom line, and top line and have them connect in the outside corner (but do not close the lines in the middle by the bridge of your nose).
At this point of my eyebrow tutorial, I would advise to re-sharpen your pencil and use short, hair-like strokes to fill in the rest of your eyebrow. Once again, stay away from the inside part, near the bridge of your nose.
Once you finish that step, use an eyebrow powder from Anastasia Beverly Hills, to fill in the rest. When you finally get to the inside part of your eyebrows, use a lighter powder with light, soft strokes to blend out the line. Some people may like a hard-line in this spot, but for me, they look better with a blended line.
Once you have the basic shape, use an angled flat brush to reinforce the shape of the eyebrows with concealer. I lightly shape up the top, but use a liquid concealer to create a hard-line on the bottom. Make sure to blend the concealer down.
You may want to use an eyebrow wand to lightly soften the top and inside lines. Be careful not to brush too much into the shape of the eyebrow.
The last part of my eyebrow tutorial is to sweep some lighter shimmer eyeshadow right underneath your eyebrow. This softens and blends the line you created with the concealer. I also lightly sweep some finishing powder across my eyebrows to soften them and lock them in place.
If you followed my tutorial, then…Voila! You now have eyebrows!
