Have you ever looked at someone’s eyebrows and thought what the hell were these ladies thinking? Makeup mistakes do happen but let’s be honest the concealer method which has been used by elite makeup artist for years is a dangerous move for anyone who doesn’t know the trick on creating perfect and natural eyebrows.
I have been in the beauty industry for over 16 years and must say the concealer trick has caught on greatly with the masses. Almost everyone you see has an idea of defined brows, but not everyone gets it right.
The angry bird which is what I call these badly drawn brows are everywhere. The sad part is most of these women don’t even know how their brows are overdone, and hideous.
You’ll always notice them by their eyebrows with the concealer screaming “Hi”. All it really takes is blending and you are good to go. Here are a few tips to help you perfect your brows using the concealer method without going overboard.
Use a concealer that matches your skin tone: The one problems I have noticed is women using the wrong concealer shade. Don’t go too light, always chose a concealer a shade lighter than your usual tone to give your brows dimension. Using a shade that is too light usually looks a hot mess and will only stick out like a sore thumb.
Use the right shade of eyebrow pencil: The idea around the concealer technique is to create a natural looking brows. Chose a pencil one or shades lighter than your natural hair colour and if your hair is lighter always go for one or two shades darker than your hair colour.
The days of using black pencil to draw in eyebrows are GONE! Another suggestion would be to try matte eye shadow if you have problem finding the right colour. TIP: Mix a tiny drop of water with your brown eye shadow to create a paste then apply using a small angled brush.
Go easy: My advice would be to build up your desired look with concealer and brow pencil to ensure you don’t overdo it.
Finished look: Finish your brows off with a spooly (mascara applicator). This is done after you’ve applied your eyebrow pencil and concealer to smooth out any harsh lines. Your completed look will look flawless and natural.
