How I do my eyebrows: A step-by-step picture tutorial.

I have been asked numerous times how I fill in my brows so I figured I'd do a step-by-step picture tutorial to show you what I do!  Brows make such a huge difference on a face, good brows make everything look clean and neat and finished.  Seriously, take a look.

So onto the tutorial!

What you will need:
1. A brow pencil (I use Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil)
2. A cream liner (I use ELF studio liner)
3. A brow powder, preferably a duo (I use Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo)

Extras you can use, which I like to:
A white, or very light, cream liner (I use NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in "Milk")
Highlight color of your choosing

My brow with nothing on it

Fill brows in with pencil.

Here's what they look like when I've finished filling them in with the pencil.

Grab an angled liner brush and your cream liner

Follow the bottom of your brows with the cream liner, creating as much or as little of an arch as you want

After using cream liner (sorry it's fuzzy, apparently I didn't get a clear picture of this), you can see where I placed the liner

Grab a clean angled liner brush and your brow powder duo

Fill brows in completely, covering the pencil and cream, blending everything together.  I use the lighter color toward the inside of my brow and the darker color on the outside.

Once that's done

Now, you can stop there if you want, but to make it a little more crisp, I like to do this next step.

Grab a concealer brush and your NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil (which I have depotted)

Draw a line under your brow

Blend it out with your finger and add your highlight color.

You're all finished!!

I hope that helps someone out there with measly little brows like I have naturally!  I put this together, too as a place to have all of the steps in one picture if that's helpful!
