5 easy steps to Eyebrow Heaven!!!!


from left to right: scissors, 2 in 1 spoolie/mascara wand&brow brush, brow pencil,tweezer, eyebrow filler, razor blade, concealer and angled brush.

Hi Lovelies,

My very first pictorial is going to be on eyebrows. Lots of people compliment my brows and ask me how i do it, so i decided to show you all these easy steps you can follow to achieve beautiful brows.


It is important to note a few things about eyebrows:

1)Never remove all your hair, never!!!
2)Your brows are sisters but not twins.
3) Always work with what you have.

No matter how wonderful your makeup looks, if your brows ain't fixed, your look ain't complete. With that said let me proceed.....

First of all, a few things you need for beautiful brows are:

-Tweezer/razor blade and a small scissors
-Spoolie or mascara wand
-Brow pencil  (brown)
-Eyebrow brush
-Eyebrow filler or matte eyeshadow (brown)
-Small angled brush
-Concealer (2-3 shades lighter)
5 Easy Steps
Step 1:

After brushing your brows upwards with your mascara wand or spoolie,remove any stray hair along the natural brow line using a tweezer to pluck, one strand at a time! oooouch, you are screaming now, i know! initially its painful, but when it becomes routine you wont feel pain. If you are tweezing for the first time, there is a trick i learnt... use iceblock on the brows to numb that area! Its easier to use razor blade to remove stray hair, but remember you have to use a new blade, which could be very dangerous! Please be very careful when using blades.




Step 2


With a brow pencil, draw a line following your natural shape.



Step 3
With your eyebrow filler or any matte brown eyeshadow fill in your brows to remove any harsh lines created by the pencil thereby giving the brows a more natural look.



Almost done...




Step 4

with an angled brush and concealer, highlight the brow bone and above the brows to clean it up and make it pop some more.



Step 5

Finally, blend away any excess concealer so that the skin around the eyebrow is even with the rest of the face. And there you have it.





I hope this helps. Your comments and questions are welcome. Please follow this blog for more helpful tips. Enjoy the rest of the pictures and as always stay beautiful. CM.

  1. Love love love! Seems like a lot of work tho....and you know me, I pay attention to my eyes but adding all these, I'll spend 5hrs just on my eyes alone. LOL

    Maybe you can let us know how to make the brows even. That's a predicament I'm faced with everyday being that I have a unibrow and have to shave off the intersection

  4. Thanks everyone, I appreciate all the comments!
    @anon13.51, if you are in lagos, we sell eyebrow fillers in the studio! Send me your email and I'll forward you the address! Yes you can use pencil to fill in the brows but it wouldn't look as natural as it would
    be with a filler!
    @Tope, do try it out and let me know how it goes!
    @Trace, starting with removing hair, you should do both simultaneously, so that you can keep tabs on how both would turn out! Do the left, then the right then the left and the right till you achieve almost identical brows! Keep practising and let me know how it goes!

  13. @Anon02:33, its a good thing you have identified your skin type, all you have to do now is stick to a routine to take care of your skin, don't change products, know what works for you!
    As for choosing the right foundation/concealer powder, you need to speak with a professional makeup artist so you can test your right shade! Then again you know makeup shouldn't be used every day, especially as you have oily skin! Sometimes should should just let your pores breathe! I'll send you my studio address! Thanks for stopping by

  14. I sure don't use makeup everyday,just 2 or 3times α week,sometimes ℓ̊ don't apply for α whole week. Am also skeptical about using α foundation and α concealer,which would u recommend ℓ̊ use along side the powder?? I need prices for the powder,brow fillers and concealer/foundation (depending on the one Ʊ recommend). I.don't want my face looking cakey,ℓ̊ just somethingwi

  15. @Anon 03:54! Aside from not using makeup everyday, what skin routine do you follow? Its important you have one! It should include but not limited to cleansing, exfoliating, facial treatment! Nothing too fancy! I can recommend clear and clear range for oily skin and neutrogena! I trust these products! You can also get a mud mask which you can use alongside facial steaming, do this once a month, it helps to shrink the pores! Before I can recommend makeup products, I need to know what you use presently!

  16. I love every bit of this but I'm sure I won't get it *sadface* I leave my eyebrows bare,no pencil nufing @ all

  17. @Anon 04:36, as long as your brows are well groomed,no stray hair, no sparse, then you are fine! Then again the idea here is to give the brows a near perfect,well defined and neat finish! So you can try it out, it just takes constant practice

  26. Hi Jules,
    Yes you can line both the upper and lower part of the brows with a pencil, before using the brow filler, for a natural effect.
