|I have pretty thin brows, how can I do a gradient filled in brow? Great blog btw :)|
Thank you! :)
Gradient brows are actually pretty simple to do, although I do suggest practicing a bit before you go out with them. You will need your typical brow-filling products… an angled eyeliner brush, brow powder or eyeshadow, and concealer (for cleaning up edges).
There are lots of youtube tutorials on the topic, but here is my little “how-to”:
1. Using your angled brush and your color, draw a line along the bottom side of your brow.
2. Fill in the tail of your brow up to the arch. The arch and tail should be the darkest part of your brows.
3. Use whatever is left on your angled brush (don’t add more color unless necessary) to blend the line you created in step one upwards, filling in your brow from the center to the front. Use upward and outward strokes to make the color as soft as possible. Once you have finished this, the front part of your brow should be lightest, gradually darkening as it goes towards the arch and then the tail.
4. Use your concealer to clean up around your brows and to add highlight to your browbone. Your concealer should either match your skintone, or be one shade lighter to bring focus to your newly-perfect brows!
