Here’s a quick cosmetics contractor tip to help with your look construction: try filling in your brows before you start applying your eye makeup, instead of filling them in after you’ve finished with your eyeshadow, liner, mascara, etc.
The reason? Well, you may have heard the phrase, “Brows frame the face,” which they do by creating a strong reference point around which to build the rest of your look. When my brows are filled in, it’s easier to tell how far out I need to take my eyeshadow, or how far up I can bring my transition colors, or how long I can make the wing for my winged liner.
Since my face and my brows aren’t perfectly symmetrical (seriously, most aren’t), filling in my brows first and getting them to look symmetrical sets me up for a more polished, symmetrical finished makeup look.
That saying, “Brows frame the face” — I really want to give credit to Jeremy Renner for that phrase, LOL! But I don’t think he was the first makeup artist to say it — it’s true. They really do.
Give it a try one of these days if it isn’t something you already do, and fill in your brows first. It makes a huge difference for me. I hope it helps you too. 🙂
