How to Use Eyebrow Pencil
Hold a pencil point up and vertical against your nose to see where your eyebrow should begin; mark this spot with a white makeup pencil or a very light stroke from your brow pencil as a guide for later.
Choose an eyebrow pencil in a shade of taupe for most people; warm (red or orange-ish) tones will look good if you have red or strawberry-blonde hair; don’t try black or a shade darker than your hair unless you want angry, evil-looking brows. Grey-haired gals should go for light brown or taupe instead of another shade of grey.
If you don’t have a brow wax, use petroleum jelly instead of brow gel to keep your brows in place. Add makeup or brow sealing solution to give your brows a natural look. Alternatives to using a pencil every day can be temporarily tattooed on in a process called microblading. Consult a professional to learn more about this process.
