We have all seen those unforgiving posts on Instagram when someone gets carried away and ends up assassinating their eyebrows. In most cases, it looks like their eyebrows have died and gone to heaven (hence the term “halo” or “ghost” brows). Bad eyebrows are never a good look, so that’s why I recently shared a product review guaranteed to make you a brow boss. It was pretty brief, so I wanted to give you a detailed step-by-step guide on seamlessly blending concealer to create the best brow look. You can watch this video I created for a guided step by step
STEP 1: PREPARE
Wax, thread or brush your brows into the desired shape. There are different styles to choose from, so go ahead and experiment (have a look at these examples for inspiration).
STEP 2: PRIME
Use a primer to keep your brows in place and a brush to create more definition.
STEP 3: OUTLINE
To make your brows stand out, you’ll need to define them. Use wax, pencil or gel to achieve this look. Take your time with this and outline with feathered strokes to create a natural look. Make sure to fill in any gaps in the middle too.
STEP 4: APPLY THE CONCEALER
To clean up any mistakes and highlight your brows, use a concealer two shades lighter than your skin tone to outline your brows. Apply gradually in layers using a dense angled brush.
STEP 5: BLEND, BLEND, BLEND
This step is crucial to preventing those infamous “halo” brows. Using an angled brush, blend out the concealer as best you can. Then, take your foundation brush. Assuming you’ve already applied foundation to your face, use the residue from your foundation brush to blend out the concealer around your brows. This will help soften any demarcations created by your concealer.
STEP 6: SPOOL THE BROWS
Lastly, to make your brows look as natural as possible, take a spoolie, and brush the beginning of your brows towards the centre of your face. Take your foundation brush again and start between your eyes and work your way up to your forehead. This will get rid of any monobrows that are trying to merge.
