I never realized how much work goes into grooming brows, until I became a make-up artist, because all I ever did was get my brows waxed, filled them in with brow powder and a brow brush to maintain them. If I wasn’t going to rely on waxing my eye-brows, then I suggest tweezing them.

Once your brows have been waxed. Grab your brow/eyelash brush to brush your brows. I prefer to brush them upwards. They look fuller, cleaner, as well as this technique really opens up your eyes.
With your make-up brow brush of your choosing, dip it into your brow powder. Use brow powder, as opposed to eye shadow. Although, you can use it. Eye shadow isn’t really sturdy enough. It’s a bit more flaky, messy, light. Brow powder is much sturdier to remain in place without using brow gel. Remove any excess product onto a paper towel or the back of your hand. I have a few faves.

Begin applying the make-up at the arch (middle) of the brow, working your way to the tail (outter eye). Not adding on any more product, finish it off by filling in the inner eye of the brows. To blend, brush your brows once more upwards.
Make-Up Artist Trick:
Follow every step, except the first one. Instead of waxing, use tweezers to pluck your eye-brows.
