Light Eyebrow Tutorial

So, I changed my ever changing brow shape again, and how I fill them in~ 
Fair warning, this brow tutorial is a bit more extreme than my older ones because I'm basically trimming my brow hairs quite short and is definitely for the more brave at heart...

Tools you'll need:
Tweezers
Optional, razor
Depending how short you want your brow hairs; a fine tooth comb or brow comb
Scissors
Optional, face bleach
 So my brows are already slightly trimmed and bleached~ I bleach them with face bleach for roughly 10 minutes, if you choose to bleach your brows make sure to keep an eye on the bleaching process to lighten them to your preferred colour.
 Tweeze your brows to clean them up. You can also use a razor to clean up little baby hairs around your brows.
Using a fine tooth comb or brow comb as a measuring tool, bring it through your brow hairs and use the scissors to cut the hairs that peek above the comb. [I used a brow comb above and it is way too short for me since I can tell my brows are very sparse, so I will stick to the fine tooth comb next time I trim my brows]

So trimming down is done, and are perfect for making them pretty and light.

[[With my brows like this, I do have to put on my brows on 'natural/ no makeup' days~ ]]

Tools for brow application:

Taupe/blonde brow powder or brow pencil 
Optional, slightly darker powder [brown or black for darker hair or pink for pink hair]
Angled synthetic brush
Concealer brush
Optional, powder brush
Brow mascara in a blonde colour
Concealer
Face powder
Btw, I wanted to try this cheaper Ardel brow palette against my Urban decay brow powder and surprisingly/happily I like this a lot more than my Urban Decay one! [I've also been using it for my contour and it's perfect~ ]

 Using the taupe and the angled brush, I sketch out the shape I want for my brow.

With a bit more product, I fill in the brow. I then wipe off the excess powder and using the same brush I blend out the front portion of my brow to give it the softer diffused look. If you need help with blending you can tap a bit of your face powder with the taupe on the angled brush to help you out.
Then, if you want you can add some of the darker brown or [colour] to the tail of your brow to amplify the blended out look of the brow. I use a mix of brown and pink to match my hair.


Then, using some concealer on you concealer brush, clean up the shape of your brow to make it look more defined. I outline the top and bottom of my brow and keep the lines sharp but blend out the concealer to blend into my already applied foundation.
Then using my brow mascara I coat my short brow hairs, which lightens up my brows a ton! Especially since there's not a lot of brow hair that can keep the brows looking darker than I prefer~

While my brows are still drying, I use my fluffy brush, tap it into my face powder and tap it over my brows to make them even lighter.
I then buff a bit of the powder to the start of the brow to make the transition point even more diffused~

Then that's it!

Pretty, light brows~
Sometimes if I want my bows a bit more pink, I'll take my angled brush and tap a bit more pink over my brows. I use my naked 3 pallette  and the colour 'Limit' as the perfect neutral pink colour for my eyebrows.


I love light eyebrows for gyaru looks or for thick brows that don't overpower one's face.

I hope that this was helpful for anyone who wants to get a nice light eyebrow, especially if your brows are very dark!
