Good morning dears.
It's a new week, and I thank God for preserving us all. It's not everyone who lived through last week that are a part of this new week, so say a silent prayer of thanks to THE ONE who preserved you.
Like I promised in the last post, here is the pictorial (picture tutorial) on drawing the eyebrows, and it's my very first tutorial yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! *running round the room ringing bell*
It's unfortunate that I can't arrange this post exactly the way I want because i'm not blogging with my laptop. Every picture is supposed to be captioned, but my iPad can't do that.
So about this post, I will explain everything in steps, and i'll post the pics in steps too. I really do hope you get it.
HOW I DRAW MY BROWS
First, I get my tools which includes an angled eyebrow definer brush, brow shaver, Tara's eyebrow pencil (any other brand of pencil will do too), a spoolie ( clean mascara wand), concealers, cotton swabs, pencil sharpener.
Next, I shave off stray hairs that may get in the way, so that the brows will come out clean and neat.
In picture 1, I have shaved off the stray hairs.
In picture 2, I have drawn the first outline under the brows. Note the way it is drawn as close to the hairs as possible, and how it follows the hairline.
In picture 3, I have now drawn the top outline also. Note the way I had to draw outside the hairs to create the arch, and how the top line meets the bottom line in a pointed manner.
In picture 4, I start filling in the outline starting at the tail of the brow. Remember to use light feathery strokes, and when I get to the area where I have hair, I only fill the sparse areas so that the brows won't look too thick when i'm done.
In picture 5, I stop filling the outline just before I get to the beginning of the brows. So that it will have a faded effect and not look 'boxed' like scouse brows. After that, I use my spoolie to brush the penciled brows within the outline to blend everything in.
In picture 6, I start highlighting the brows using my angled brow definer brush to apply concealer at the very edge of the brows. Be careful not to clean off the drawn brows ooooo! You need a steady hand for this....the steadier, the neater.
In picture 7, I have blended out the concealer downwards into the skin.....don't blend upwards into the hair.....blend it downwards till it disappears into your skin.
In picture 8, I have applied concealer at the edge of the upper part of the brows....as close to the edge as possible.
In picture 9, I have blended it out properly upwards into the skin.
There you have it! Brows are done!
Don't fret if you don't get it at first....keep practicing. Brows are one of the things a lot of people struggle with in makeup, you will get it with time. Remember that practice makes perfect.
I really do hope my pictorial helps someone out there.
Have a wonderful day folks.
