Accentuate Your Brow Contours
Whether you pluck, wax or use another method to keep your brows groomed, it's difficult to create a completely perfect brow line. Fortunately, you can enhance the shape of your brows by accentuating their contours with an eyebrow pencil. Pencils come in two forms: hard pencils and crayons.
Hard pencils require frequent sharpening, but when they have honed tips they are very easy to control to make precise lines. The softer tips of crayon pencils produce wider, less defined lines, making them great for filling in the brow line and for creating more dramatic lines along the brows. For best results, match the color of your eyebrow pencil or crayon to the natural color of your brows as closely as possible.
Darken and Perfect Your Brow Line
Tracing the outline of your brows with an eyebrow pencil is just the first step to beautifying them. You also want to ensure that your brows are even in color, and you may want to slightly darken them to make them standout. One way to do this is by coloring with a soft eyebrow pencil crayon or with an eyebrow pencil that has a slightly blunt tip. For subtler color, you can use a powdered brow shadow, which is applied either with a sponge tip applicator or an eyebrow brush
Get Your Brows Under Control
Got thick brows that tend to stray out of place? Clear eyebrow mascara or control gel can help you to slick your brows down and keep them looking well-manicured. Cream-based brow shadows also control those wild hairs and provide added darkening benefits to enhance the color of the brows.
