Sometimes, the shape and thickness of the eyebrows do not fit the face well, and it is necessary to transform the original eyebrows. But for makeup beginners, and most people, maybe they don’t have time, or they don’t know how to transform their eyebrows, they don’t make any changes to their native eyebrows. The blogger shared this post at Cosmeticskey just to share with you the tricks to modify your native eyebrow shape and how to draw eyebrows step by step.
It is important to know that eye makeups are the most important part of a girl’s face decoration, and drawing eyebrows is also a step of eye makeup, different eyebrow shapes will shape different beauties. As we all know, good-looking eyebrows are the key to a perfect and delicate makeup look. Natural eyebrow drawing can improve our appearance, so it is clear that eyebrow shape is crucial in human facial features. How to draw on natural looking eyebrows has therefore become a topic that many beginners and senior makeup artists like to discuss.
1. Prepare Eyebrow Drawing Kit and Eyebrow Trimming Tools
The first thing is to prepare the tools for eyebrow trimming and drawing: eyebrow powder, eyebrow drawing pencil, eyebrow trimmer, eyebrow trimming clip, eyebrow trimming scissors, eyebrow brush, eyebrow dyeing cream, etc. These tools are all needed in the process of eyebrow trimming and eyebrow painting. Don’t underestimate these tools, part of how well you draw your eyebrows is influenced by the eyebrow drawing tools.
2. Modification of Native Eyebrows
First, use a spiral brush to comb the eyebrows in the direction of their natural growth, so that it is easy to see the original shape of the eyebrows. According to the shape of the eyebrow, determine the position of the head, peak, and tail of the eyebrow.
Under normal circumstances, the position of the head of the eyebrow is perpendicular to the eye socket. With an eyebrow pencil, the eyebrow drawing pencil is perpendicular to the eyebrows, the edge of the eyebrow pencil coincides with the outer edge of the black eyeball, and the position where the eyebrows and the pen holder intersect is the eyebrow peak. Use the eyebrow pencil to connect the two points of the nose and the end of the eye. The extension line of the eyebrow pencil and the extension line of the eyebrow end intersect at one point, which is the position of the end of the eyebrow.
After determining the brow heads, brow peaks and brow ends, and the right brow shape that suits you, use an eyebrow trimmer to gently trim off the stray hairs around the brows. Here’s an eyebrow trimming tips: Make sure the eyebrow trimmer is close to the skin and gently scrape off the excess hairs against the direction of eyebrow growth. The area between the left and right eyebrows also needs to be scraped clean so that the eyebrows look fresher.
Finally, use the eyebrow brush again, brush upward from the bottom of the eyebrows, fix it in the middle of the eyebrows, and then use the eyebrow trimmer to trim the long eyebrows slightly. Use the brush to sweep away any excess hairs and keep them fresh. The modification of such native eyebrows is completed.
3. Eyebrow Filling
For makeup beginners, the blogger personally suggests that you can use an eyebrow pencil to gently connect the eyebrow heads, eyebrow peaks and eyebrow tails in sequence to draw a more shaped outline, and then fill in with eyebrow powder. If it is the first time to draw eyebrows, and cannot master the eyebrow pencil well, you can also use the angled eyebrow brush to outline your eyebrows outline with a brow gel, which will give you a clearer eyebrow shape. I personally think this eyebrow drawing tutorial is more suitable for makeup beginners. Of course, for senior makeup artists, this method can also be used to draw European and American eyebrows.
Beginners should also pay attention when drawing eyebrows for the first time. When the eyebrow pencil touches the skin, it must be light, so that the eyebrows drawn will be natural and beautiful. In particular, pay attention to the brow heads that must be drawn lighter, and the part from the peak to the end of the eyebrows can be slightly darker, and then apply the eyebrow dye to make the eyebrow color closer to the hair color, and the eyebrows will have a more overall sense.
For senior makeup artists, they will pursue a higher level of eyebrow shapes drawing. Usually, to draw a natural brow shape, the makeup artist will start at the waist of the eyebrow, draw upwards, diagonally towards the outside, and color in the areas where natural eyebrow hairs grow. In the sparse or gap of the eyebrows, you can draw thin lines on the skin to mimic the growth of hair.
In this regard, I will share with you the eyebrows drawing references of senior makeup artists:
- From the peak to the tip of the eyebrow, it is drawn with outward strokes.
- The tips of the eyebrows are drawn slightly diagonally downward along the growth direction of the eyebrow.
- The brow heads may not be drawn, but if the eyebrows are sparse, you can use the eyebrow pencil to gently draw a light hair-like line upward.
- The brow bone, the protruding part of the bone below the brow peak. Stray hairs here need to be scraped clean and a little highlight added as appropriate. Of course, if you want natural-looking brows, you can just slightly trim the stray brows.
4. The Choice of Eyebrow Color
Eyebrow colors for everyday use are generally: gray, dark brown and black. Among them, gray and brown eyebrow pencils are more suitable for daily life. Of course, it also depends on the individual’s hair color, and the best rule is to insist that the eyebrow color is lighter than the hair color. You can also refer to the following eyebrow drawing guide for daily eyebrow color selection:
- Gray eyebrow pencils, which can make the overall eyebrows deep and thick but true and not stiff.
- A dark brown eyebrow pencil is generally used for drawing light makeup to make the eyebrows look natural, realistic and stylish.
- A black eyebrow pencil, which can be used for the waist of the eyebrows, can emphasize the three-dimensionality of the eyebrows and strengthen the strength of the eyebrows.
In addition, it should be noted that the shade of the eyebrow color should be coordinated with the color of the eyeliner and eye shadow, as well as the overall makeup, and the concentration of the eyebrow color usually does not exceed that of the eyeliner. Of course, if you wear thick makeup, the eyebrow color needs to be darker; light makeup, the eyebrow color needs to be lighter and more natural; and if you want to wear stage makeup or need to do a special look, you can also use other exaggerated eyebrow color.
The above is the basic eyebrow drawing step by step. If you are a makeup beginner and learn how to make eyebrows drawing for the first time, this post can teach you how to draw on eyebrows naturally.
