When you’ve got fair hair like me, drawing on eyebrows becomes somewhat of a necessity and believe you me, finding ideal eyebrow pencil tips is never easy. If you’re looking for eyebrow tips that really work and that can make your eyebrows look amazing, I’ve got some right here!
Shade comes first
One of the first eyebrow pencil tips we’re going to talk about is the shade! Yes girls, the shade makes all of the difference when it comes to your eyebrows, so make sure that you are choosing carefully. If you choose a colour that is too dark, it can stand out too much and a shade that is too light won’t stand out enough, so you’ve got to choose carefully.
Two shades lighter than your hair
Ideally, the shade that you choose for your eyebrow pencil should be about two shades lighter than your hair. Why? Because that way it’ll blend in but still be a little different than your hair colour.
Use the pencil only in your hair
One of the most common mistakes when it comes to drawing on your eyebrows is that people go outside of their hairline along their eyebrows. One of the eyebrow pencil tips that I have is to make sure that you use the pencil only in your hair. Stay in bounds even if you have to trace your arch and around your brow a little, inside the hairline.
Keep pencil off the top end of brow
When you are dealing with eyebrow pencils, it’s important that you keep the eyebrow pencil down on your eyebrow. Avoid pencilling in along the top end of the brow. The top arch is thinner than the rest of the brow, which means that keeping the eyebrow pencil away is the best bet to make everything look natural!
Don’t make them dark
This deserves its very own category! When you make your eyebrows too dark, it can actually clash with your eye makeup and can even make your face appear smaller! So girls, make sure that you lighten up the strokes and the colour. Always watch just how dark your brows are.
Never press too hard
One of the biggest eyebrow tips that I’ve learned when I started to use eyebrow pencils is never, ever press too hard. I know that it’s hard to do, especially when you are in a hurry, but keep your hand light. Most of all, make sure that you aren’t pressing down completely on the pencil tip.
