BROW WOW!

MAKE SURE TO BLEND THE CONCEALER PROPERLY ET VOILA, YOU HAVE FULLER BROWS! :)

TO FURTHER EMPHASISE THE SHAPE OF YOUR BROWS, OUTLINE ITS SHAPE WITH A CONCEALER THAT IS A SHADE LIGHTER.

IN L.A. THEY HAVE THIS PROCEDURE CALLED BITCH BROWS. HEHEHE. APPARENTLY, THIS IS HOW A LOT OF L.A. MAKE UP ARTISTS RE CREATE KIM K.'S AMAZING BROWS. I FOLLOWED THE SAME PROCEDURE BUT I SKIPPED DIPPING MY ANGLED BRUSH IN WATER. WITH MY ANGLED BRUSH, I USED BENEFIT'S BROW ZINGS IN MEDIUM TO OUTLINE THE SHAPE OF MY BROWS. AND THEN I USED BENEFIT'S BROW ZINGS IN LIGHT TO FILL IT IN. MAKE SURE TO BLEND.

I USED BODY SHOP'S BROW PENCIL, WHICH IS A SHADE LIGHTER THAN MY HAIR TO CREATE THE ARCH. I BASICALLY DREW ON AN ARCH BY LIGHTLY FILLING THE BALD SPOT.

START BY COMBING YOUR BROWS UPWARD WITH A BROW COMB.
MY LEFT BROW HAS AN ARCH BUT MY RIGHT BROW HAS A SEMI WONKY ARCH. THIS IS WHAT WE WILL WORK ON.

One of the beauty trends for Autumn/Winter 2010 is the strong brow. Eversince I can remember my sister and I have always been obsessed with the perfect brow. At 13 or 14 I was plucking my classmate's brows in the stone tables of St. Scho! hahaha. My sister and I were also trying to figure out how Kevyn made Linda's brows look lighter. At 14 and not knowing the existence of Jolen facial hair bleach.... this was just magic!

This is kind of a step by step post on how I do my brows.
