“A forehead knowledgeable confirmed me this easy hack and it is modified the best way I do my eyebrows.”

Don’t fear, it’s not you.

In the previous couple of years, the eyebrow cosmetics class has exploded and it’s solely persevering with to develop.

It’s so much.

In response to Profit Beauty’s Nationwide Survey, 76 per cent of us attain for an eyebrow pencil to place our brows on each morning. I’m a type of folks, too. I take advantage of eyebrow pencil most days to make my brows look pure and full. Solely, I didn’t know how I used to be making use of my eyebrow pencil was doing… the precise reverse.

The factor about eyebrow product is as soon as it’s on, it’s actually laborious to return with out ranging from scratch. Very like your refined cat eye eyeliner that unintentionally turns into a really dramatic wing while you unintentionally apply an excessive amount of product, pure brows can rapidly turn into darkish caterpillars when you’re not cautious.

One minute, you’re colouring away and the subsequent, Groucho Marx is staring again at you within the mirror.

However how a lot eyebrow product is an excessive amount of eyebrow product? And is there a ‘proper’ strategy to apply eyebrow pencil/gel?

Once I put this query to Profit Australia’s Nationwide Forehead Artist Hannah Mutze, she confirmed me the place I used to be going fallacious.

“Actually, it is best to solely apply product the place your brows want it – assume tweaking the form, and filling gaps and holes,” she informed Mamamia.

“As an alternative of making use of color opaquely by way of the forehead [i.e. colouring it in], define your form and apply just a little color the place you want it, then mix the color upwards and inwards with a spoolie [brow brush] to melt the color for a pure end. You need to see pores and skin beneath your brows, they’ll look 100 instances extra pure and also you’ll be saving product.”

That’s nice recommendation, however how does it look in follow?

To display simply how a lot of a distinction tracing and mixing makes versus ‘drawing’ your brows on, I attempted each on my brows on the similar time.

On the left, I current: a traced forehead (I used the Profit Forehead Contour Professional eyebrow pencil/pomade). The colored in forehead is on the suitable.

Whereas I would be completely pleased to go away the home with both of those eyebrows, you’ll be able to see how the approach used on the left creates a fluffy, naturally full wanting forehead, whereas the right-hand facet appears to be like a tad extra… full on.

It is solely a refined change, however for me, it is the distinction in my eyebrows wanting ‘executed’ and simply naturally good.

And, as Hannah so helpfully talked about above, tracing round your brows makes use of much less product, which is a win in itself.
