Eyebrows have been the bane of my life, I had lovely thick eyebrows but back when I was 14 in 2005 I HATED them so overplucked them, they were never the same again, they grew back gradually and were decent again apart from the inner bits that have always been sparse especially on my my right eye and were like that until I was about 18 when I overplucked them AGAIN because I am a total idiot!! and now im 22 they do not grow good.....at all, they grow where I don't want them to (e.g in no shape) so I keep them fairly thin, thankfully I have never overplucked them that much they were barely there or anything so yes I keep them thin now but have to pencil them in as I like medium brows for my face, the right one I still don't like so im still 'mothering' that, I thought i'd do this post as alot of people on youtube/blogs have commented on they like my eyebrows but believe my without eyebrow pencil i'd be lost and I only started filling my brows in when I was like 18 before than I was in the dark LOL
So above is my 2 fave 'Eyebrow Pics' they were taken on a shoot on the same day so I obviously was having just a good brow day
This with nothing is my eyebrow in its total natural state -
To start doing my brows I line my eyebrow pencil straight up in line from the side of my nose, this is where you brow should ideally start (obviously my brows have been filled in so this is just for an example!)
Then I go from the arch bit down to the end and just keep brushing over with soft, feathery strokes, don't get the pencil and treat it like a felt tip or heavy hand you have to gradually build
I also always put concealer under my eyebrows for a clean definition and highlight the brow bone area so the arch is emphasised. The main key is practise, practise, practise, I rarely get annoyed at my brows now but theres been so many days when they were in worse shape and I couldn't get them even to save my life and would nearly be in tears with frustration as I hated them!
Right now I am going to carry on growing them whilst trying to keep them in shape, Ideally I want to start getting them threaded as I think thats the best option for brows,
It's hard to explain in a blog post so this is just really a post on what I do instead of trying to make it a tutorial as that would be abit hard on a blog but I think I shall make a video about it soon as one of my lovely friends Natalie (hi if you're reading!!!) requested it a while back I just haven't had the time.
P.S these are my eyebrow inspirations -
