How To Do Eyebrows Like An Actual Pro

Whether your eyebrow vibe is full and boyish or sculpted and defined, our five hacks will get your brow game strong in an instant. It’s time to live your best brow life…

1. Map the Shape

Want to know how to do eyebrows like a makeup artist? The secret is to start by roughly mapping their shape on your face before pencilling them in. As a general rule, the beginning of your brow should be in line with the corner of your nose, and the highest point of your arch in line with the centre of your eye. If your brows are particularly sparse, this will show you where to fill in any gaps and help you to create a shape that’s ultra-flattering. Mark the outline with the angled brush and powder in your shade of the Brow This Way Eyebrow Sculpting Kit, then lightly fill before sweeping the wax through your arches to groom and fix.

2. Etch and Sketch

Thinking of trying microblading? To fill in gaps and create a microbladed effect on your brows at home, try our new Brow Pro Micro 24HR Precision Stroke Pen, available in the shades Blonde, Honey Brown, Soft Brown and Dark Brown.

This super-precise liquid brow pen is here to step up your brow game, one flick at a time. To achieve your ultimate brow goals, start by brushing through eyebrows to reveal your natural shape. Then, use the fine tip of Brow Pro Micro 24hr Precision Stroke Pen to etch hair-like strokes into any gaps. Want to go for a fuller brow look? Map out your desired shape, then use the pen to etch further strokes underneath your arches, feathering the pen into the edge of your eyebrow for a natural-looking shape.

3. The Ombre Effect

If you’re ready to try grid-worthy ombre eyebrows, start applying your shade of Brow This Way Fibre Pencil to the centre of your brow, before etching it through to the outer point in short, sharp strokes. The end of your ombre brow should be darker than the beginning, so build up colour here for definition. After sculpting the middle to the end section of your eyebrow, go back to the start and blend pencil through with a lighter hand. The final gradient finish is so Instagram-ready.

4. Lift and Highlight

To get your brow arches on point, use the tip of tap Magnif’Eyes Mono Eyeshadow in Q-Jump directly underneath the arch, moving through to the very end of the brow. Lightly blend with fingertips to diffuse the pale, shimmery shadow. This gives the illusion of a higher arch and a super-sculpted brow look.

5. Ready, Set, Brow

The final step to becoming a pro in how to do eyebrows? Lock it all in with a sweep of Wonder’Full Brow Mascara. Perfect for fixing your pencil in place, the fade-proof, shower-proof formula lasts up to 24 hours, taming stray hairs into place and adding instant volume for a fuller finish. Your brows will not budge all day.
