Soft Eyebrows Tutorial


Hello everyone! I'm doing my first tutorial ever so please bare with me. Today I'm going to show you how I do soft brows. This is the perfect everyday look for me since I leave my brows thick so I don't want to overdo my eyebrows by making it strong. I want to make it look soft. Everyone has a different way of doing their eyebrows. This is mine.

Things you'll need:
1. Razor/tweezers
2. Eyebrow scissors
3. Lash comb/spoolie
4. Eyebrow powder
5. Brow mascara (optional)

Let's start with the shape of the eyebrows. Note that these are only guidelines and you don't need to follow them exactly.

1. Using a pencil or brush, make a line from the side of your nose to the inner corner of your eye. Where it lands in your eyebrow is where you should start.


2. Make a line from the side of your nose to the center of your eye. Where it lands is where the arc of your eyebrow should be.

  

4. Make a line from the side of your nose to the outer edge of your eye. Where it meets is where your eyebrow should end.

  

Knowing these guidelines, use a razor or tweezers to shape your eyebrows. If you're not confident, use a white pencil to draw until where you are going to remove.

Using a lash comb or spoolie, brush your hairs in an upwards motion.

 

If there are any hairs that are standing up after you have brushed your eyebrows, cut them with eyebrow scissors.

 

Using brow powder, fill in your eyebrows. For this tut, I used E.L.F. Studio Brow Powder in Medium.

 

Start from the middle of your eyebrows around the area of the arc. Then blend outwards. Using less or no additional powder, blend near the inner part of the brow going to the middle, then blend from the innermost part of the brow going out. The idea is that you use the most brow powder in the arc, less going out, then even less as you go in the eyebrow. Remember that this is a soft brow look so we don't want them to be in-your-face. If there are any areas where there is little or no hair, remember to fill it in to get your desired brow shape.

  

 Using your lash comb or spoolie, brush your brows upwards to make sure that the powder has been distributed evenly.

  

Optional: Run through your brows with a colored brow mascara to furthur soften the look. I used ELF Studio Brow Treat and Tame in Medium.

  

And your done!
Remember this look? I used the exact same steps and products to achieve this brow look.

  

 I hope this helped. Ciao!
