I have stumbled upon the most amazing eyebrow pencil ever, keeping in mind that I’m not a pencil kinda gal, I always use eyeshadow eyebrow fillers, but this little one was worth the ‘temporary’ switch…it is the Perfect Brow Pencil by Anastasia!
This double-duty wizard is comprised of a velvety pencil on one end, and a brow brush on the other, each uniquely suited to create a beautifully natural brow.
I got it in Medium Ash – which is a taupe based brown. This pencil is super dry, it doesn’t smudge, melt or make your eyebrows feel oily or stuck together. The brush on the other opposite end is also helpful for grooming after application of color. Color itself is build-able, so you can make it as light or as dark as you want.
Eyebrows are very important and it’s even more important to have the right shape that frames your face correctly. Once you accomplish that, you will sport a complete your look with the perfect eyebrows that will frame your face and make your eyes stand out.
Here is a tutorial by Anastasia herself on the quick and easy way to get the perfect eyebrows in the comfort of your home!
1. Align the brow brush vertically from the center of the nostril upwards. Make mark “A”. This is the starting point of your brow.
Place brow brush diagonally from the bottom outside corner of the nostril to the outside corner of the eye. Make mark “B”. This is the ending point of your brow.
2. Select the stencil that fits the most of your natural brow hair through the cutout. Align stencil with points “A” and “B”, making sure the top burgundy line rests parallel on the forehead. Use Mini Duo Brush and Anastasia Brow Powder Duo to fill inside the cutout.
3. Tweeze hair outside the stenciled area in the direction of hair growth.
4. Apply highlighter pencil on the brow bone starting above the iris to the end of the brow and blend using the fingertip. Anastasia Highlighters define brow shape and highlight the brow bone.
5. Apply Clear Brow Gel lightly in short, upward strokes. This must-have gel keeps unruly brows in place all day without flaking.
