How do you use an eyebrow pencil to create that beautiful power brow?

You know how it is. Your makeup bag is crammed to the hilt with makeup. Every now and then you loose a cap or a lid, or your eyebrow pencil sharpener goes missing, so you end up pencilling in your eyebrows with a blunt tip. Sounds familiar? This is the moment to make your eyebrow pencil your priority. The tip always has to be sharp. This allows you to draw straight, thin lines. A skinny, sharp tip also makes it easier to draw with a light hand.

 

There are two golden rules for applying eyebrow makeup:

  1. First draw the outline of the eyebrows, then blend in the colour of the inner brow section.
  2. The inside has to be lighter than the tail end, to create a pretty ombré effect. When the inside of the eyebrow is just as dark as the tail end, the eyebrow appears to sit on top op the skin. There’s a name for that in England: the Scouse brow (named after the habit of certain Liverpool women – nicknamed ‘Scousers’ – to go slightly overboard with their brow makeup). Trust us, you don’t want a Scouse brow.

Make-up products

There are also different kind of make-up products to fill in your eyebrows. See what suits you the most. Some like more natural like a soft pencil. Some like it more defined like a pomade liner which is also waterproof. See www.mrshighbrow.com for the different brow make-up

Ska (Saskia) begon haar loopbaan als eindredacteur en werkte voor magazines als Elle, Glamour en Cosmpolitan. Ze schreef over beauty en raakte steeds meer gefascineerd door wenkbrauwen, waar op dat moment nog niet veel aandacht voor was. Zo kwam het dat ze in 2009 een opleiding voor permanente make-up deed, en niet veel later wisten klanten vanuit het hele land, en zelfs daarbuiten, haar studio te vinden. Inmiddels laat haar rug het behandelen niet meer toe, maar runt ze met veel plezier vanachter de schermen de twee vestigingen van Mrs.Highbrow.
