How to get perfect
Our Global Head of Make-up Paul Merchant, explains how to style eyebrows properly.
Natural eyebrow make-up in three stepsTo get perfect-shaped eyebrows, use your nostrils as a starting point. Take a straight tool like a brush, eyeliner pencil, or a ruler and then do the following:

Tools to shape for perfect eyebrowsThe choice of color depends on the skin tone, eye color as well as hair color. As a rule, brows are two shades lighter or darker than the natural hair color (on the head). If you have very dark eyes, you can confidently choose an Eyebrow Powder that is two shades lighter than your hair color. This will discreetly accentuate your eyes. Otherwise, a shade that is two shades darker than your hair color is recommended.
Did you know? Eyebrow Powder can be applied both dry and wet. If you use Eyebrow Powder in combination with the Cake Eye Liner Sealer, it even becomes smudge-proof.
Now it's time to fill in the brows. Use a firm, angled brush to apply Eyebrow Powder and tap off the excess. Using the steps above, first, apply the brush to the lower line of the brow and then gently sweep upward through the brow hairs. The color concentration should be most intense at the lower baseline at the beginning of the brow and fade out toward the end of the brow, just like an ombré effect. Use the flat tip of an angled brush to lengthen the end of the brow slightly.
When filling in, make sure not to cover the brows with too much color. To achieve a natural foundation, fine hairs can be drawn from the bottom to the top after applying Eyebrow Powder. To do this, simply choose a Faceliner, Contour Pencil or HD Cream Liner of your color and draw as realistically as possible. Practice makes perfect.
It is always a good idea to fix the eyebrows with Eyebrow Forming Gel for the crowning touch. Make sure that the right amount of product sticks to the applicator when pulling it out. Too little will minimize the effect, and too much will result in a flaky effect once the gel dries. Starting at the bottom of the hair, sweep the gel over the entire length of the hair in the direction you want the hair to lie. Now let the gel dry for a few seconds.
