Perfect Hollywood Brows!

Hey beauties!

So, groomed eyebrows are one of my big beauty musts for a perfectly polished look. 
A little grooming goes a long way, it adds shape to your brow, opens up your eye and structures your whole face. 
So if you beauties desire perfectly shaped brows Hollywood style just like Megan Fox, here's your how to...

1) PLUCK! 
    You will need a little shape to begin with, let your brow hairs grow until you have enough to work with. Here is a picture of the sort of shape you should aim for:

    I find it's always easier to get the right shape if you brush your brows first with a spoolie (the brush on the end of your eyebrow pencil). 
Remember not to get too carried away and over-pluck, it's not a good look at all. 
Never pluck above the brow, only from below.  

2) TRIM!
    If any of you beauties have long thick eyebrows like me, you may also want to trim them. You can do this by brushing them upwards with a spoolie and use a pair of clean nail scissors to gently snip the ends off. 
    TIP: you wont need to cut very much off, literally just the ends to neaten up. 

    By this stage, you beauties will be ready four your eyebrow pencil application. Don't be scared, it's super easy once you get the hang of it!
    I always start by using the spoolie to comb through brows.
Next, draw 3 dots, 1 just above hair-growth at the beginning of your brow, 1 3 quarters of the way across your brow, and 1 just after your brow finishes.

I usually define my own brows a little differently to this, taking the centre dot a little further over so the arch isn't as big and my brow appears longer and straighter. But this is just my own personal preference. You beauties will have to experiment to see what you like the most.

Now, it's simple a case of joining the dots together and filling in sparse areas with short, feathery strokes. Remember to sketch in the same direction as your natural hair growth and not to press too hard on your pencil, you don't want your brows to look too harsh and heavy. This should really define your brows and create a gorgeous arch. 

Lastly Brush into place with your spoolie. The transformation is complete, you should finish with a precise arched brow!

So there you have it beauties, flawless Hollywood brows in minutes, just like the stars! Xx
