Eyebrow Tutorial

We begin with this season’s must-have beauty look: statement eyebrows. The over-plucked brow of the nineties and noughties is long gone.

Dita Von Teese, Cara Delevingne and Rachel Weisz have all rocked the strong brow trend. Even if you don’t want to go big, perfect eyebrows are a compliment to any makeup style.

Eyebrows are expressive, they frame your face and need to be in proportion to your eye but everyone’s eyebrows are different. This handy diagram (below) shows you how yours should line up to suit your face.

Then it’s a matter of choosing your hair removal technique whether it’s plucking, threading or waxing. Finally, fill in the brows with a powder or pencil.

DIY Eye Makeup

pencil and liquid eyeliners are staples of most women’s makeup bags and some men toor. Though, in recent years, gel eyeliner has become the newest tool of choice. It’s easier to apply, it gives a thicker kohl line and you can easily achieve a sexy smudge effect.

One secret everyone should know about their eyeliner pencil is that it’s easily transformed into a gel liner. All you need is a kohl pencil and a lighter. This is the perfect tool for tightlining (eyeliner on the upper waterline for emphasis and pop).
