I feel fairly certain that brows are the most neglected part of our faces when doing makeup. Mostly I think some are rather intimidated by them, and don’t want to look as if someone drew sharpies on their faces a la Chola style.
So we’re not all about that. What we are about is gently filling in those brows so that they can frame the work you’ve done on your eyes and face. Bold brows are back, and they aren’t going anywhere any time soon. They were seen all over the runways for the past few seasons, so those of us who spent the 90’s tweezing all our brows off have some growing in to do. Luckily, using eyebrow pencils and powders can stand in while they fill in. Here is how to get amazing brows using the new Billion Dollar Brow Best Seller Kit from Kohls.
- Starting with the product end of the brow pen, which is a universal shade and will look good on anyone, lightly feather strokes in the direction of hair growth instead of trying to line your brows. Think of it as you are filling in hairs – the makeup will stick to your skin, not your hair, so it’s important to keep it natural with those feathery strokes.
- Take the spoolie end of the wand and brush it completely out. This will actually remove some color and make it more natural looking. If you removed too much color, just go back and feather in more strokes.
- Set them with gel. This keeps them perfectly manicured and in place. I prefer clear gel over colored, but I tint my eyebrows to match my hair so I don’t need any other color going on up there.
A few tricks:
- The set comes with a double sided pencil with a light highlighting shade and a darker corrector shade. Use the highlighting shade along the underside of the brow and blend well with the accompanying brush. This “lifts” the brow and gives you a more youthful appearance.
- The corrector side of the pencil is awesome under your eyes. Again, using the stiff concealer brush, apply it in strokes and blend well.
