The trend of contouring the face, body and hair has moved to the eyebrows, the arrangement and definition of which has experienced a real boom in recent years, it seems to me especially among younger girls. Thick, trimmed and as natural as possible eyebrows have been a must have for several years. I agree, properly groomed eyebrows shape the face, visually enlarge the eyes and improve the overall impression.
The Benefit brand in the Brow Bar line has a multitude of eyebrow care and shaping products; gels, powders, primers, pencils, brushes, highlighters. Kudos to the thoroughness and innovation, which is why they are the world number 1 for eyebrow care. I myself often stop in front of their exhibition, visually ingenious stand, and study what they have to offer. The packaging is with a retro flair, pin up models and bright pink and silver colors.
One such original product is the Benefit Brow Contour Pro 4in1 eyebrow contouring pencil which gives them a shaped and defined look. The design of the pen is remembered with nostalgia from childhood, and contains four different shades of color.
On the product box there are clear pictorial instructions on how to shape sparse and shapeless eyebrows in four steps and with four colors.
We start editing the eyebrows with a lighter shade, from the beginning of the eyebrow to its arch.
From the middle of the eyebrow to its end, apply the darkest shade of deeper shade.
To define the edges with the definer shade, we trim the eyebrows from the beginning to the end, from the lower and upper edge of the eyebrows.
In the last step, we apply a highlighter under the eyebrow arch.
The shades are listed on the pencil and by clicking we select which one we want to apply.
The texture is easy to spread, and the eyebrows look natural after contouring. Still, for a powdery, much more natural look I prefer to use eyebrow shadows, but about that another time. The contoured look will not last all day though and after a few hours you will have to fix it. Of course, as with all contouring, you will still need a little more time and practice to make all of this look good. I’m just trying out their eyebrow gel too so I’ll write you your impressions soon.
