How to Make Up Brows and Lashes
How to make up brows seems a bit of a mystery and it’s a shame that
as we get older our eyebrows become so sparse that we often give up.
One look at a beautiful celebrity tells us how important eyebrows are.
lift and open up the eyes, so they should not be neglected. However
sparse and unruly they have become we can turn them into an asset. Here’s how…
You will need..
Tweezers and an eyebrow brush plus a
soft eyebrow pencil like the one below in a color that matches your
brows. A powder shadow in the same color with a small, flat, angled
brush for application. Check out this page for the right make up tools and let’s get on with how to make up brows and lashes!
- The eyebrows should begin above the inner corner
of the eyes. If necessary pluck any hairs between these points. Then,
those below the arch to emphasize the curve. Do this carefully to avoid making the eyebrows too thin.
- Toward the outer edge of the brow is often a little fuzzy, so you
might need to tweeze a few little hairs above the brow too. Careful
here, because we need to retain the brow line. Don’t over pluck and
never pull out the white hairs, they can always be coloured.
- Now use the soft eyebrow pencil to fill in the shape with tiny hairlike strokes.
Then soften with the brow shadow and brush. Tap the brush on the back
of your hand so it isn’t overloaded. To blend or soften further, a baby
cotton bud is a good tool.
- Finish with the eyebrow brush and a tiny spot of gel warmed in your hand, to brush the little hairs and the unruly ones up and into the new shape.
Voila! ‘A’ list eyebrows.
New eyebrows can make us feel a little self
conscious so use color sparingly. After the shortest time, you won’t
feel right without them.
So, now you know how to make up brows lets complete the picture and make
the very best of our eyes and lashes. You can find all the tools and
brushes I recommend at The Online Beauty Spot USA or the Online Beauty Spot UK & EU.
Making the Most of Every Single Lash
Eyelashes, they used to be our pride and joy. We made them up
like Jean Shrimpton or Twiggy depending on our mood. Sadly today they
are fewer, and also stubbornly straight. I still find eye make up to be
the most effective and will probably never stop wearing mascara. Lets
find out how to make up our lashes to put them back in the limelight.
- An eyelash curler is a must have! Choose one
with good rubber liners. It takes a little time to get used to using one
but the eye opening effect it has, even without mascara, will amaze
Look slightly down into a hand mirror and lay the curlers as close to
the base of the lashes as possible and slowly and gently squeeze to
press the curl. Hold for about 30 seconds. How does that look?
- Some of the best mascaras
on the market today are inexpensive and promise thickening, lengthening and curling
magic. Some have a tiny brush specifically for the tiny but ever so
important inner and lower lashes.We’ll help you choose the best mascara for your needs.
- Avoid the kind that have lots of thickening filaments as they tend
to fall onto the skin below the lashes and make a dark shadow. Beware
the huge difference between brown/black and black. In daylight black can
look very hard and aging. Choose brownish/black for daytime and save the black for candle light!
- A good lengthening mascara will have a brush with wide
apart bristles to grab the lashes at the base and coat each one
Look up slightly and wiggle the brush into the roots of the
lashes and brush upwards. Touch on the lower lashes very slightly. For
evenings you can apply another layer but beware of overdoing it, the
result could look hard or make you look tired. A soft smudge of powder
shadow drawn on the lower lash line with a baby bud is more effective.
