Pimples can be the worst thing in the world, but it can also be a great way to look stylish.
To help you make sure your brows are in good shape, here’s a cheeky guide on how to keep them neat and tidy.
Make sure your eyebrow area is clean and free of makeup When eyebrows are done, make sure they’re clean and dry.
They can also help to avoid smudges from any potential makeup remover.
A quick tip to get rid of smudged brows: Apply a thin layer of water-based makeup removers like Tarte Tarte, Urban Decay Naked Basics and MAC Primer Potion to the brow area, then rub on a few drops of eye makeup remonger.
Check your brow bones If you’re still having issues with smudging, it’s a good idea to check your brow bone.
It can be tricky to spot when it comes to brows, so it’s worth checking to see if your brow is slightly raised.
If it is, it means your brow should be well rounded and is not too high up on your face.
Check the contour of your brow If you have a bit of a curvy face, you may be able to get away with a little less curvy brows because they’ll look a bit more natural on the eyes.
But if you have more straight lines or have a more natural brow shape, you’ll need to work on that.
Remove excess makeup It’s best to work through the process of removing makeup from your browbones.
Makeup can often feel a little bit flaky on the brows and can make them look unnatural, so removing it can help make sure you don’t have to worry about smudging your brow again.
Avoid smudging by choosing the right eye shadow, blending it and applying it over your brow This might sound like a no-brainer, but choosing the correct eye shadow can actually be quite helpful for brows.
If you can find a product that looks like a neutral colour, then you’ll have a better chance of getting the right shade for your brow.
Make your brow feel more natural You’ll also want to look for products that help to make your brow look more natural, and these can help to remove any smudging and give your brow a bit less lift.
Here are a few things to look out for when applying eyeshadow over your eyebrows: A matte eye colour like ColourPop Eye Shadow or Urban Decay Eyeshadow Duo is ideal.
It’s not too shimmery, but will help to soften your brow and soften the lines on your browbone.
It will also help keep your brow lines looking clean and natural.
Another great way is to use a brow pencil to highlight your brow, which can help your brow stand out.
For a little extra extra shine, try using a brow powder.
Blend brows with a brow brush and powder to make them more even and more natural to the eye A brow brush or brow powder is great for adding some natural colour to your brow to make it feel more like your eyes are closer together.
A brow powder can also add some extra volume and definition to your eyebrows, so be sure to experiment with different brands.
Check to make sure the brow is not falling out while you’re brows blending It’s important to check to make certain that your brow isn’t falling out.
Make certain that the brow brush is angled at the top and you’re not creating a crease or an uneven line.
If the brow looks uneven, then it’s probably not the right colour for you.
Check for creases and uneven lines with a makeup removals tool This can be an effective way to check if your eyebrow is looking good before you start applying eye makeup.
A remover can be a little difficult to find, but if you look closely, you can sometimes spot them with a tissue.
Make a note of where you spotted it, and then check to see whether the product you’re using is to blame.
You can then look at a few different eye shadows to see which one works best for you, and if you’re concerned about the appearance of your eyebrows in the future, use a product like Makeup Remover to help you remove the product from your eye.
Use a brow gloss to smooth over the smudgy brows for a more professional look If you’ve got a smoky brow, a browgloss can be used to smooth the smudge out and make it look a little more natural.
Try a colour like Urban Decay Makeup Powder Brow Gloss for an easy-to-use brow gloss.
