Shaping Your Eyebrows

Ok, this was kind of scary for me, it is my first attempt in a video tutorial!
I have been getting "How do you... ?" request, so I decided I would try this out!
I went for the easy tutorial first and started with shading in my eyebrows..
So if there are other request on things you would like to see,
then feel free to let me know in the comments!

cut me a little slack if this wasn't the perfect tutorial.. i'm a newbie!
but i hope you are able to see how much better a little shading can do!

Since my brow shadow did not come with a brush I just picked
one up in a cheap set from Walgreens. It works just fine.

Back to my smashbox Brow Tech set -
it comes with a type of primer for your shadow..
it is in a putty form.. i use it sometimes but don't feel it is crucial.
I also only use the darkest shadow in the set for my own brows..
so any of the eyebrow shadow sets below ⇣ I would recommend!

My eyebrows have been freshly threaded & I cannot stress enough
on how crucial it is in my monthly routine! (every 2-3 weeks)
I just go to the Brow Art type of places in the mall
I have been to plenty of different ones in different malls and they have all been just fine!
Since I live in Idaho now, and there is a mall 30 minutes away
and I'm not even sure they have a brow place there..
It took me a good month to go get them threaded again.
I tried to keep up the maintenance on my own by tweezing and trimming,
but it just doesn't look the same as when they thread & shape mine!

Everyone's eyebrow shape/brow-line is different.. it is nice to go to a professional
to see how they would shape yours first then maintain it, by their direction!
Above is a guideline you can follow if you are doing them on your own!


  1. I love your brows!! Your tutorial was great! Seriously! I've always looked at your pics and thought how gorgeous you are and how perfect your eyebrows are, now we know your secret! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Oh quick question... Does it come with brushes or what do recommend?

    1. It does not come with a brush, I picked up a cheap one (small angle brush) from Walgreens but look for something like this one:
      or I listed good eye brow shadows above and those came with brushes!

  3. Just found your blog and I love it! You're so chic and have such a beautiful face; your blog is so real and just joyful. Love it!

  4. You should try Anastasia brow whiz. $24, sephora. You'll never go back to anything else. It's the best thing out there for brows. Love the idea of some video tutorials though. I'd love to see a get ready with me, or your skincare routine!
