Ladies: the verdict is in. Forget ombre hair, well-groomed eyebrows are the hottest new fashion accessory! Want to boost your brow game without spending big bucks at the salon? Celebrity makeup artist Kelley Baker shares her top tips for eye-catching eyebrows.
Step One: Shape
Attaining the perfect eyebrow starts with choosing the right shape for your face. Waxing is a quick and efficient way to shape your brows, though it can be painful and irritating to your skin. To reduce the pain, Kelley recommends applying tea tree ointment prior to waxing to soften the skin.
Step Two: Highlight
Once you’ve got the shape you desire, now it’s time to make those brows pop! A highlighter pencil, or “magic stick” as Kelley calls it, can help lift the brow and make you look more awake. Simply draw a line using the pencil below the hairline.
Step Three: Blend
Using a thin brush, blend the highlighter cream into the hairline, following the shape of the brow. Then blend down over the lid to obscure any line of demarcation.
Step Four: Add color
Using the same thin brush, blend in a color powder similar to your brows to fill in any gaps.
And voila! Enjoy being the object of eyebrow envy today!
