Before I post my “eyebrow shaver,” I thought I’d just comment on a hugeee pet peeve of mine, which is when people colour in/use the wrong colour for their eyebrows. ughhh
Prior to starting this blog, I probably watched 50 videos on how people do their brows. The majority of the bloggers used a brow pencil 2-3 shades lighter than their hair and I think for people with brown hair or brown eyebrows that’s fine (kinda). But when your hair is black, 2-3 shades lighter is STILL BLACK. I don’t know where these people took art classes, but unless I missed out on something, 2-3 shades lighter than black isn’t chestnut or chocolate. When girls with dark hair colour their brows in these lighter brown shades everyone can clearly tell your actual hair from the pencil on your skin and it just looks extremely unfortunate.
But this epidemic of wrong coloured brows does not end here! nononono. People who dye their hair but don’t dye their eyebrows seem to be under the impression that their eyebrow colour has also changed. I’m sorry to tell you that you have been misinformed. If you dye your hair a lighter colour and use a matching eyebrow pencil your darker eyebrow hair will be easily visible and thats just not a good look. As well for people who over colour their brows and basically colour outside the lines I hope that you now realize that it’s very noticeable for the rest of us.
Makeup is suppose to look natural and enhance your beauty so put down that pencil.
Exhibit 1: An eyebrow that has been drawn on with a lighter eyebrow pencil. See how you can clearly tell how this eyebrow has been drawn on. Don’t do that to your face
Now, I understand many people choose a lighter shade so that their eyebrows don’t appear harsh or overpowering. But don’t be concerned using a similar colour brow pencil can still achieve a soft look, just remember to spooooooley.
I’ll be uploading my eyebrow tutorial soon and hopefully you’ll all see the difference using a darker eyebrow pencil can make. – J
