Many professional makeup artists believe that defining the brows is the most important step to any great beauty look. Not only do our brows create a frame for the face, they instantly open up the eye area, and can make us look put-together even when we're not wearing any other makeup. Sold, yet?
Get the look
Once you've visited a professional brow tech to have your brows shaped, you'll need to fill them in with product every day to define them. To do this, you'll need a brow pencil, spoolie brush, and brow wax. Then, just follow this simple tutorial from L'Oréal Paris Canada makeup expert Eddie Malter...
Step one: Brush the brow. Use your spoolie to brush the brow hairs in their natural direction of growth- normally the hair at the start of the brow grows upward, while the ends grow to the side.
Step two: Define the brow with the colored end of the Super Liner Brow Artist eyebrow pencil. Work from the inner section of the brow using light, even strokes.
Expert tip: Pick a shade that is approximately one tone lighter than your hair color for a natural look.
Step three: Follow with the wax end of the pencil to hold the hairs in place.
Step four: Brush the brow one last time for the final look.
- Thick, full brows (a la Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins ) are very popular at the moment. If your brows aren't naturally full, don't fret- just follow our tutorial for tricking your way into Delevingne-esque brows!
- Remember: think of your brows as sisters, not twins! Don't stress if they don't look identical, they're not meant to!
