How to Best Create Bold Brows Without Going Overboard

This post can help you avoid mistakes when going for a bold brow.

Trying to perfect the natural frame of our eyes can take some experimenting with various forms of brow products before we are satisfied with our results.  Take gels and waxes, which are fine but are better more for control than depositing as much intense color as brow pencils or powders.  However, powder is the superior performer if you are striving for the most natural look.

The reason brow powders are ideal is because you can brush as much pigment as you need to play up the brows.  On the other hand, pencils give you less control of how much color is dispersed, which can result in a heavy, painted line from you drawing them in.

When you start from the middle of the brow and take a stiff angled brush using short, delicate strokes for laying down powder between the hairs through to end of the brow, you build up as much boldness as you need without appearing overly done and artificial.  To finish up, set with a spoolie brush with clear gel or one misted with just a little hair spray

What also is extremely important is making sure your brow powder shade is an exact match to the roots of your hair in its virgin state instead of your current hair color if you dye it.  

If you keep these few brow tips in mind, chances are you will be much happier with the look of your brows.
