Step 1

Step 1

Fit your eyebrows in the right shape. Use extra tweezers to remove excess hairs. Choose a pencil color based on the type of appearance. Blondes can use pastel gray or beige shades, brown-gray or “wet asphalt” (brown pencils are almost always cast with a redhead), brunette – classic black.

Comb the eyebrows with a stiff brush (suitable with old mascara) so that the hairs lie a little down.

Step 3

Step 3

Step 4

Comb again.

How to color eyebrows with shadows

Just a reservation: eyebrow shadows should choose dark shades without a pearly tint, otherwise the makeup will turn into a funny clown mask. To achieve maximum naturalness, it is best to use not a sponge, but a stiff brush that allows you to apply a minimum of shadows.

For perfect eyebrow shading you need:

Stage 1

1. Give them the right shape.

You should not make a thin line – friable shadows on it will look messy. It’s best to slightly adjust the natural bend..

Stage 2

2. Apply shadow on a wide part of the eyebrow

Using a stiff brush, apply a small amount of eye shadow on the eyebrows, gradually blending them. The movement from the wide part to its tip with wide “strokes” will be correct. Blondes and light brown are suitable for sand and light brown shades, brown-haired – chocolate and brown, brunettes – brown-black or black. Ginger will have to look for rarer, but most suitable brown-red shades.

Stage 3

3. To draw an eyebrow from below with shadows of a light shade

Bring the eyebrow from below with shadows of a light shade. For a clearer line, you can lighten the area under the eyebrow, but if you need the most natural make-up, you can skip this step.

Stage 4

4. Comb with a brush.

After staining, comb your eyebrows, removing excess shadows. If desired, naughty hairs can be fixed with wax or gel..

How to color your eyebrows with permanent paint

If you like to sleep long or are going on vacation, then this method was invented just for you. Half-hour staining will allow you to enjoy lasting color up to a month. The main thing is to choose the right shade of paint, because after painting quickly say goodbye to the wrong color will not work.

Charcoal black eyebrows go only to swarthy brunettes – the rest of the girls should choose brown-black, brown or red color, depending on the color of the hair.


You can play with a shade by varying the staining time: the longer you hold the paint, the richer the color.

Permanent eyebrow dyeing consists of three stages:

  1. Preparation for staining. Before applying paint, the eyebrows are combed, and a greasy cream is applied to the skin around them, otherwise sloppy smudges may appear.
  2. Dilution and application of paint. The paint is mixed with an oxidizing agent in a non-metallic dish and applied to the entire length of the eyebrows with a special spatula evenly for 5-7 minutes, after which it is washed off with soap and warm water.
  3. Wash off excess paint. If nevertheless the paint left marks on the skin, they can be wiped with a cotton swab dipped in lemon juice or hydrogen peroxide.

Which eyebrow tinting method is better?

Which of these options to choose, it’s up to you based on what kind of result you want to achieve. The easiest way is to use a pencil – with an established technique, painting eyebrows in the morning will not take you more than five minutes. Shadows also do not require much time, and they give a more natural effect. The main drawback of these methods is that makeup with eyebrows will have to be washed off every evening, and in the morning start over.
Staining with a special dye gives a longer result (from several weeks to a month), but you need to consider if you are allergic to the coloring pigment or oxidizing agent.

As you can see, eyebrow makeup is nothing complicated. To learn how to properly paint them, you only need to purchase high-quality products and correctly perform all the necessary actions. Excellent result will not keep you waiting!
