Natural Eyebrow Pencil from Savarnas Mantra



We all carry a brow pencil in our makeup bags. It’s such a brow staple. It is sold in extravagant numbers at almost every makeup shop. But really, are we using it right? Essentially, if I walked out on the street and asked somebody what they did with their eyebrow pencil, there’s a high possibility that they would reply with an “Outline my eyebrows.” But that’s not the only feature of an eyebrow pencil. So the big question remains — are you using your brow pencil right, and are you using it fully?

The answer? It’s here in this blog — tips to use eyebrow pencil correctly. Please note, that this blog is written in a way that it can be a guide for beginners too!

How to Use Your Eyebrow Pencil Correctly?

1. Set the Foundation:

This is a crucial step. You need to prep your canvas before painting. Your eyebrows need to be cleaned of all makeup, serum, and dirt completely. They need to be brushed well to tidy the hairs, as well as to perk them up with better blood circulation in the area. Now this clean, primed base becomes your playground for eyebrow pencil magic.

2. Map Your Brows:

Mapping out your brows is the next logical step. Come on, don’t you want that perfect symmetry and precision? You do, don’t you? Then utilize your eyebrow pencil to mark the starting point, arch, and end of your brows. This creates a roadmap of sorts, ensuring balanced and well-defined eyebrows. Consider it as plotting coordinates. This helps you outline better when the time comes.

3. Feathering Strokes

The trick lies in micro-movements. What’s that? Small, tiny strokes that are light and gentle. Instead of attacking your eyebrows with the brow pencil scribbling left, right, and center, you must go slow. Try to mimic the natural hair growth in feather-like strokes. This takes you far away from that ‘drawn on the brows ’look and into the natural brows territory. Once you are done, it’s time for some blending!

4. Blending Magic

Blending is key to flawless final eyebrows. After using your pencil, grab a spoolie or clean brush and soften the edges. You must blend the pencil strokes with your natural brow hairs. This creates a smooth transition, preventing a stark contrast between the pencil and your natural brows.

5. Highlight the Arch

Using a highlighter, go over the brow bone very subtly. This or a light eyeshadow accentuates the arch, adding dimension and drama to your brows.

6. Finish with Outline

In case you have left any areas untouched or unruly, you can outline with your eyebrow pencil. Do not outline like you would a picture in a book. Just go over areas that you feel need definition.

7. Correct any Mistakes

Mistakes may happen. Your eyebrow pencil may look darker or uneven. In such a case, use a concealer around your brows to clean up uneven lines or smudges. This sharpens and defines for a polished look.
