Get perfectly shaped brows that flatter your features! Follow this guide and learn how to use an eyebrow pencil to achieve the ideal eyebrow shape for your face.

Tools you'll need:

  1. Prep and Analyze:

    • Brush brows upwards and outwards using the spoolie.
    • Refer to the chart above to determine the best brow shape that complements your face shape.
  2. Outline the Bottom:

    • With light pressure, use your waterproof eyebrow pencil to draw along the bottom edge of your brow.
    • Soft, feathery strokes create the most natural look.
  3. Define the Top:

    • Trace the pencil along the top edge of your eyebrow.
    • Blend lightly downwards for a seamless look.
  4. Enhance the Arch:

    • Using the pencil tip, gently emphasize your natural arch without making it overly sharp.
  5. Fill and Detail:

    • Use the triangle tip's corner to create hair-like strokes at the inner brow. Fill in any sparse areas.
    • Blend with the spoolie for a soft, realistic finish.

Pro-tip: For a softer, diffused brow, apply minimal pressure and maximum blending. For a bolder, blunt brow, apply more pressure and minimize the blending.
