I thought I knew how to do my brows until Kourt’s makeup artist, Tonya Brewer, graced my face with glam for our recent Liquid I.V. x Poosh photoshoot. And let me tell you, when you’re in the hands of a Kardashian glam member, you take notes. From tools to application techniques, I was sitting there soaking up all the insight.
This brings me back to my brows. I’ve always kept my brow routine pretty simple, giving them a good brush and applying a soft gel coat to keep my hairs in place. While there’s nothing wrong with my two-step process, after seeing my brow potential thanks to Tonya’s touch, I knew I needed the exact instructions. She truly leveled up my brow game, and now I don’t think I can go back.
OK, here it is—run don’t walk to your vanity to try it out yourself!
Tonya’s Guide to Naturally Whispy Brows:
“Start by laying the brows in the position you want. To do this, I take a small amount of Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze on a brow brush and brush the brows down (I know, kind of weird—it’s the opposite direction you want them to go). Think of this as if you were applying an adhesive to the backside of your brows for them to stay up in the position you want them to lie on your skin.
Now that the product is applied, use the same brow brush and comb the brow hairs up in the direction you would like them to lie. I like to keep them feathery with a little separation.
Next, take the handle of the brush and press the brow hairs against the skin using an upward motion. This will keep the brows in the correct position and help achieve the appearance of a laminated brow.
Now that the brow has been laid, go in with a brow pencil and lightly fill any gaps. I use a light hand for this and make small hair strokes with the pencil so the brow doesn’t look drawn on. Sometimes I will even extend the brow to elongate the eye or widen the brow to give it a fuller appearance.
After the brow is filled in, the final step is locking the brow in place. To ensure the brow holds the perfect shape, I apply a few strokes of Makeup by Mario Master Hold Brow Gel. I usually keep the inner brow closest to the nose a little feathered (by combing in an upward motion). Then starting at the arch of the brow, I smooth it over toward the outer corner of the eye.”
