Beauty Tutorial: Eyebrows 102


Eyebrow before and after

Many of you may be thinking, “Am I experiencing deja vu?” No, you aren’t. This, indeed, is my second article on eyebrows. (In case you missed it, see my Eyebrows 101 tutorial!)

I decided to do an update because I learned a new, awesome way of doing brows and I wanted you guys to be the first to know. How did I come up with this new way, you ask? I shall tell you in great detail:

One day I was looking in the mirror and was saddened by my eyebrows. They just weren’t looking good. They were losing their shape and just…. ugh. So I went to the MAC store with my brow concerns and asked the nearest artist for some help.

They educated me on “The Art of the Brow: Fake It ‘Til You Make It Edition.” The whole idea is to use a gel eyeliner as a base to create the underlying shape and either blend it into the hair you have or use it as a template to create brows, if you lack them. They suggest MAC’s Fluidline in Dipdown, but I found a much cheaper alternative that I used in the video. I thanked the artist like 43 times before leaving the store with all this new information.

If you want to see how to revive your brows or create new ones, check out the video below:

    YES I NEED THIS SO MUCH. My eyebrows make me sad too! But I’ve never heard of gel eyeliner!

    So interesting! I’ve never heard of using gel liner for this. Usually I just use Benefit’s Instant Brow pencil. Great post!

    Is there a way that this could work for blondes? My eyebrows could definitely use some love, but there aren’t exactly a wealth of blonde-toned eyeliners out there… Any thoughts?

    Thanks, and as always, great video!

    Filling eyebrows is something I discovered last year, and I’m so glad I did! It definitely makes a difference. I’m probably never going back to not filling my eyebrows.

    I hardly ever do anything to my eyebrows other than brushing them and putting some brow powder in them once in a while. Am I the only one who doesn’t really care about her eyebrows? How many of you spend the extra time on your brows every day?

    @Grace: What about a taupe gel liner? It might be easier to find then limiting yourself to technically blonde hues. Plus, taupe-y grey shades look great for filling in ashier blonde hair! And if it’s more gold, maybe add a little powder eyeshadow or pencil too?

    I just use MAC’s Brow Set in Beguile and find it to be such a brow saver. It’s worth every penny!

    love your tutorial. i always have problems with putting liners and things on my eyebrows because it seems like it ALWAYS looks so fake and done-up. not natural at all. but i think this trick might be my answer for making it look natural. thank you!
    p.s. thank you for using common drug store cosmetics. so many times in tutorials i’ll see a product and think it’s great…only to realize it’s like $50…which is definitely not something i can afford.
