MAKE-UP TUTORIAL: HOW TO SHAPEN YOUREYEBROWS.

 BY DAMILOLA POPOOLA

Happy Rainy Sunday!

Do you know that the way you shape your eyebrow can enhance your face and appearance by balancing your facial features? Eyebrows can either be thick and full or thin and scanty. Thick eyebrows are often preferable because all you need to do is tweeze or shape them with a blade, but thin eyebrows need to be filled out with eye pencil, which is usually tasking. Either way, here is how to shape your eyebrows in a way that fits any face.

INSTRUMENTS:
Blade or a tweezer,
Eyebrow pencil
An old toothbrush
Ruler

Step 1: Know your starting point by placing a ruler or pencil vertically in front of your face. Allow it touch the side of your nose and then mark the spot on the under brow. Repeat it for the other eye.


Step 2: Look straight into the mirror and make an angle from your nose to your eyeball, wherever the pencil meets your eyebrow is your arch; mark the spot with your pencil. Repeat it for the other eye.

Step 3: Make an angle from your nose through the edge of your eyeball to your eyebrow; that's the end point.
 
Step 4: Connect the points on the underbrow. Make sure you draw it from the tip to the end to form an arc and measure (a maximum of) 0.5cm on a ruler, then draw the line also on the upper brow.


Always know that it shouldn't extend that, but it can be smaller, depending on the shape and how wide your face is. A wider face means a wider brow and vice versa.

Step 5: Remove the hair that is left outside the lines you have drawn.

Step 6: Brush the hair upward with a toothbrush and remove the hair extending the lines on the upper brow. Also remove the air between the brows.

Step 7: When defining your eyebrows, make sure there is space between the two starting points, so you don't look like you're frowning.


Note: It is not wise to shave all the hair on your eyebrows because it alters your face and doesn't make a good morning after, if you know what I mean. You don't want to look into the mirror with your make-up off looking like a zombie (Lol). Your eyebrows define your face.

Meanwhile, so many people have been asking me about the type of eye pencil to use, (drum roll) here it comes...

Eye pencil/definers come in Light brown, Brown and Dark brown. Many shades of pencil fall into these categories, and there cheap ones just as there are expensive ones.

Let me use some popular people to describe the appropriate shades:

For people who have similar skin and hair colour with Monalisa Chinda, Nadia Buhari etc, I will recommend the "Light brown eye pencil/definer" E.g Davis and other products Colour 40, (Tara) Orekelewa (Light brown) Etc

For people who have similar skin and hair colour with Rita Dominique, and Tonto Dike, (yeah, Tonto Baby! Lol) i.e fair people with dark hair colour, I'll recommend the "Brown eye pencil/definer" e.g Davis 18, and other Colour 18 pencils, Orekelewa Brown, Zaron Brown medium, Jordana (Coffee bean) etc

For people who have similar skin and hair colour with Omotola Jalade, Taiwo Olushoga etc I will also recommend the "Brown eye pencil/definer" e.g Davis 18, and other Colour 18 pencils, Orekelewa Brown, Zaron Brown medium, Jordana (Coffee bean) etc

For people who have similar skin and hair colour with Tiwa Savage, Omawunmi, TY Bello etc I'll recommend "Dark Brown eye pencil/definer" E.g Davis (03) and other 03 pencils, Orekelewa (Dark brown), Jordana (Lavish Brown) etc

Note that if you feel that your eyebrow is too light or dark, just try the "Brown category" because it works for almost every body.
