Default Tutorial: eyebrow refresh.

I've been meaning to do this, for a while now, but just needed to wait until Vicky was ready for new eyebrows.


I work with her head on a towel, resting face-up, held between my thighs; doing this allows me to move and turn the head as I need and helps keep my hand steady.

Tools you will need;
Eyeshadow
Applicator sponges
Small flat brush
Stencil
Acrylic paint
Cotton buds
Baby oil
Kitchen roll

Colours:


I will be creating brown eyebrows so, I'm using a medium brown eyeshadow for the 'base' and a darker brown acrylic paint (burnt umber) for the 'hair.' I try to keep the shades close. For black, I would use a medium smokey grey eyeshadow for the base then a black or dark grey acrylic for the hair.


Prep:
I prepare the area by wiping with baby oil and cotton buds but, if there is still some previous brow left, I will be careful not to completely remove it. Once oil cleaned, I pat dry the area with a little kitchen towel.

Laying the base:


Holding the stencil in place with a finger and thumb of one hand, I load the applicator sponge with eyeshadow with the other. Then, starting at the narrow end of the stencil, I make short strokes and fade my way to the wider end. Then I make a single pass from the narrow end, to smooth out. I only load the sponge with eyeshadow once.

Shaping:



Now there is an eyebrow, it's time to give it some shape. Using cotton buds that have been dipped in baby oil, I wipe the edges of the brow and carefully shape it. Once I'm happy with it, I use a clean baby oiled cotton bud and clean up the area then pat dry with some kitchen towel.

Loading the brush:


For creating the hair, I have a little of the acrylic paint on some kitchen towel. I dip the brush into it, then wipe the brush on the kitchen towel. I will do this a few times to shape the brush into a crisp flat edge and remove any excess paint.

Creating the hair:


Using the sharp edge of the brush, I begin adding a few short lines following the directions of the arrows in the illustration, working from the underside of the brow to the top, I increase the length of each line as they angle until I reach the end.

I repeat this until I've taken care of filling in any big gaps.

Later on, I'll finish up with a few extra strokes to fill in and finalise then call it a job done.


Just remember to take your time but be quick with the brush, unless you want wavy eyebrows. And, if you end up with a mess, it's easily cleaned up ready for another try.

WOW, that's a really great effect.
But how will I remember it when I need to do Pixi...oo-er, sounds a bit rude.
