About the Expert
Hi, my name is Yessica Andrea. I'm a professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to make eyebrow pencil stay on. The first thing you want to do is you want to select a really good eyebrow pencil. It can be a light brown, dark brown, normally a lot of people don't really use black, but that's something you can do on occasions depending on the evening or it's more like a nighttime look. But for an everyday look, a light brown or a dark brown would do just fine. I got this really good pencil. You want to make sure you get a really nice little cool sharpener, and you sharpen it really, really good. Once you do that, I'm going to get close to the mirror, and you want to start on the inner part of your brow bone, filling in all the little space inbetween the hairs. As so. Every eyebrow shape is different, just work with what you have. If you don't have any eyebrows, this is a great way to create your own eyebrow using a pencil. Now there are many ways of filling in your eyebrows. I like to use this technique, but there's other ways of doing it. You can just simply get a nice, fine brush, a dark eye shadow, like a brown eye shadow, depending on the color, and just go ahead and powder that on to your eyebrow. Do one eyebrow first, then go right into the next one. Filling n my eyebrow. Starting from the beginning front part and work your way out. So that's going to complete your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil. Now how to make it stay on is get a good, small little brush, and go ahead, powder it down so that it does not move, you want to go ahead and use your eye shadow, your dark eye shadow brown, you can either pat that in or work it right in. Work it right into the hair. Do the other eye. Going to do a little bit of both. Adding and spreading movement. Once you finish that, you want to incorporate some mascara into your makeup. Go ahead and pick some nice, dark back or some dark brown. Do both parts of the eyes. And then it's really up to you if you want to do the bottom part. And that is how you make an eyebrow pencil stay on. I'm Yessica Andrea, and thank you for watching.
