To use an eyebrow pencil on your brows, hold the skin taut at the temples, draw a soft line along the upper and lower edge of each brow, and fill in the area between the two edges with feathery strokes. Blend the pencil in well with a wiry brush.
- Choose the correct eyebrow pencil
Select an eyebrow pencil that is a shade or two darker than your eyebrows if you have fair brows or two shades lighter if you have dark brows.
- Prepare the brow
Hold the skin above one brow taut with one hand, pulling at the temple.
- Draw along the brow line
Draw a soft line along the lower edge of the brow, then line the upper edge. Repeat this step on the other eyebrow.
- Fill in the brows
Use light, feathery strokes with the eyebrow pencil to fill in the area between the lines you drew. Follow the direction of the hair as you fill in the brows.
- Blend the brow pencil color
Use a small, wiry brush or eyebrow-shaping brush to soften and blend the lines so they appear natural. Use short strokes, starting from the inner corner of each brow and working out to the ends. You can use a clear brow gel to prevent smudging and keep the brow hairs in place.
