Statement Eyebrow


IN BEAUTY  / 

There are three things I never leave the house without: my phone, money for food and my eyebrows done. I don’t know about you, but personally, I believe eyebrows are an essential part of your face on which I never skimp time, even if I overslept. They’re so important, that we girls probably waited to be the minimum age imposed by our mothers in order to pluck our eyebrows (and if you were unibrow like me, then you probably even prayed to the gods and wished you could travel to the future).

Before starting this tutorial, I’d like to say that I like my brows strong and structured, because having soft facial features as me, thick brows help bringing strength to your face. Everybody can draw their eyebrows as they want to, but just in case, here’s a guide in order to find your ideal eyebrow shape.

1/ Start with clean & plucked eyebrows (duh), this photo is basically so you can see how my eyebrows look without a drop of makeup on them.

2/ Fill the shape of your eyebrow with Bobbi Brown’s Mahogany eyeshadow (or any neutral shadow of your preference), it doesn’t matter if it’s too dark or too artificial, we will fix it on the next step.

using – Bobbi Brown Mahogany
eyeshadow, e.l.f. eyeliner
angled brush

3/ With a brow wand, blend and comb the excess eyeshadow, make sure you blend well the hard lines, especially where you don’t have any hairs.

using – e.l.f brow wand

4/ Draw tiny hairs at the beginning of the eyebrow with Tony Moly Tattoo eyebrow pen, this will create that dense eyebrow look even if your brows are thin. If you make a mistake, blend it with the brow wand. You can also draw hairs everywhere else you need to.

5/ Comb your brow hairs upwards and make them stay in place with e.l.f. eyebrow gel (you can also use hair wax), this will help blend the fake hairs with the real ones.

6/That’s it! As you can see, it’s not expensive or difficult to achieve a statement eyebrow, you just need a bit of time and some practice.

  1. Omg hello! 😀 I never thought it’s that easy. But wait, do you thread or plucked your eyebrows? I’m gonna apply your tip especially on our graduation ball or even when I go out from the house. Hehe. Thank you so much, Adriana. Much love. -jullie 🙂 x

  2. When I was younger I used to have my eyebrows thin and arched high
    It was the look you know. But now that I’m older I do fill in my brows to look thicker. I also read somewhere having thicker eyebrows gives you a more youthful look. So you know I was all for it! It does take a while to get used to it I must say. Your brows look great! Thanks for the tips! I didn’t know elf has eyebrow gel!

  3. Ay me encanta! Siempre lucen perfectas tus cejas. Yo solo uso una sombra para darles un poco mas de potencia, pero siempre he tenido curiosidad por usar gel/cera, a ver si me voy buscando alguno. Y de peque yo nunca quise sacarme la ceja, de hecho hasta que tuve a mi primer bebé y comenzó a sentarse por sí sola fue cuando comencé a querer cuidar ese aspecto (y hasta que tuve a la segunda me puse en serio), así que tengo muy poco tiempo haciéndome cargo de mis cejas (y eso que nunca tuve una ceja muy agraciada pero siempre usaba/uso flequillo así que nunca se ven) soy un espécimen raro creo jeje.

  4. Yo casi casi tenía uniceja, jaja. Hace un par de años que me las maquillo (antes me daba mucha flojera) y de verdad que hace toda diferencia. ¡Que vengan más beauty posts!
