| Eyebrow Do's & Don'ts | Beginners Eyebrow Tips for Natural Looking Brows |

Before getting into makeup, I had no idea my eyebrows would be so important to me. I used to never do them, and now even if I'm not wearing any makeup, I always have to do them! I really feel like they make my face look so much more complete, if that makes any sense. 

Anyway, through some serious trial and error, I think I've finally gotten the hang of doing my brows. It took a lot of horrible and hilarious mistakes, but you have to fail a few times before you can master something. I'm in no way an expert, but I'm getting there!

I figured I'd put together a list of some eyebrow do's and don'ts to help others avoid the mistakes I made!

Here are my tips for natural looking brows:

Don't brush your eyebrow hairs down

Even if your hairs naturally grow downwards, don't do this. When you brush the hairs down, it brings your whole eyebrow down.

Do brush your eyebrow hairs up

When brushing your eyebrow hair, do so in an upwards motion. It lifts the hairs and makes your eye area appear bigger and brighter!

Don't use a color that is too dark or too light for your eyebrows

Finding the right color for your eyebrows can be a little tricky, trust me I know. I went through blondes and light browns before realizing my perfect shade was taupe. 

Do use the correct color for your brows

Although it may be hard to find the perfect match for your brows, it makes all the difference when it comes to creating natural looking brows. 

Don't draw your brows on with straight lines

It may seem easier to just draw a straight line when doing your brows and although you'll be saving time, your brows will actually end up looking too harsh. 

Do feather in the product

If you carefully feather in the product you'll for sure be spending a little more time doing your brows. However your brows will appear much more natural than if you just drew a straight line across. 

Don't use a heavy hand when applying product

This is an easy mistake to make when using a pomade, but you never want to do your brows using a heavy hand. This will make your brows look harsh and blocky.

Do use a light hand

When you use a light hand you'll have better control of how much product you're applying. Your brows will look much more natural if you use light strokes and if you go in the direction towards your ears.

Don't square off your brows in the front

This just makes your brows look big, blocky, and fake. Your natural brows aren't squared off in the front, so when you do them you shouldn't square them off.

Do go really light in the front

If you notice, you actually have less hairs in the front of your brows than you do throughout the rest of them. When you do the front, you should do light strokes going up to create the most natural looking brows.

Don't drag your brows down at the ends

When you get to the ends of your brows, you may want to extend them a bit. Don't drag your brows down though, this just brings the whole brow down which could make your brows and eyes appear more droopy.

Do extend your brows in the natural direction they go

When you go to extend your brows, just extend them a little going more straight out. This way you don't bring down your whole eye look.

Remember I'm not telling anyone that the way they do their makeup is right or wrong. I'm just providing some helpful tips for making your brows look natural. You can do your makeup however you choose to, it is a creative outlet used to express yourself, you're allowed to do whatever you want with it.❤

  1. this is so great for someone trying to get into brows! Easy to understand and TRUTH for someone like me. I completely agree with ALL of these!! I can definitely agree with the one about making them blocky looking- that is the WORST and I try to avoid that as much as possible! I'm all about the natural brow (yet polished) look!!
