Turquoise Reverse Smokey Eye & Brow Tutorial

Hello Beauties!

I had one of my friends request a brow tutorial, so I thought I’d share it with you all as well. Follow these steps below to achieve this type of brow. I know everyone does it differently, but this is how I do mine. 🙂

1. Prime the eyebrow with an eye primer (optional)
2. Using an angled brush draw the bottom line of your brow with a brown eyeshadow
3. Draw a second line from the top of the arch down to where you’d like your brow to end
4. Connect the lines and fill in the tail of your brow
5. Draw a line on top of your brow connecting to the arch
6. Fill in the center and blend the color evenly
7. With the left over product on the brush start to fill in the front of the brow very lightly and blend the harsh lines out
8. Take a light concealer and with a flat synthetic brush draw a line directly under the brow to make it sharp and clean
9. With the same brush blend the concealer down so there is no harsh line
10. Do the same process to the top of the brow except use a concealer color that’s close to your skin tone
-voila- shaply brows!

Next up is the makeup I did with these brows. I went with a more dramatic look.

2. Blend a taupe brown just above the crease
