Let’s get to the tutorials!
If you’re seeking buildable, flawless brows, try this this brow stylist Kabuki crayon: It glides on smoothly and easily for a quick on-the-go application. The Kabuki brush helps to blend in this 24-hour waterproof formula for a natural, impeccable finish. Just because you’re pressed for time doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the integrity of your brows!
On The Go Brow: Featuring L’Oréal Paris Stylist Kabuki
Prep: Start with clean brows. Use the kabuki brush to fluff the brows in the same direction, just as you might with a spoolie (AKA eyebrow wand).
Fill in brows with Kabuki crayon. Use the tip of the crayon to fill in your brows to the desired shape and depth. This crayon is perfect for a natural brow look to build a statement-making brow.
Blend with Kabuki brush. To finish the look, simply flip your tool around and blend the crayon by lightly sweeping the brush through your brows in small strokes.
Et voilà! Flawless brows to go, please :)
For those of you seeking a perfectly defined looking brow, this ultra-fine pencil tip allows you to mimic your natural brow by adding small hair-like strokes. These hair strokes produce a gradual shading effect. This, paired with the fiber-infused gel in the brow stylist plumper, will bring harmony to your final look in a matter of minutes.
Balanced Brow: Featuring L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer + L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Plumper
Sweep through your brows with the soft blending brush. Make small brush strokes in the direction that your brow hairs naturally grow to get your brows ready to shape.
Fill in and shape with the Brow Stylist Definer pencil. Using the ultra-fine pencil tip, lightly outline your brows, then gently make feathered strokes throughout that mimic your brows natural hair growth to fill in.
Plump and blend with L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper. To blend, plump and balance this look, use the brow stylist plumper to make short upward strokes along your brow arch.
Ta-da! Balanced brows that are sure to wow.
For the woman seeking flawlessly groomed and bold brows, this lightweight pomade, makeup designer brush and spoolie combo is the answer you’ve been looking for. The mousse formula easily glides onto your skin and brow hairs to frame and set your brows, while the spoolie will help you soften the look. This will give you a styled yet natural finish that will last a full 24 hours.
Bold Brows: Featuring L’Oréal Paris Stylist Frame + Set
Style and define with L’Oreal Frame & Set. Lightly dip the professional brush into the mousse, then outline your brows to define the arches. Fill in the shape by making small strokes with the angled side of the brush. If you want more intensity, use the flat side of the brush.
Blend, blend, blend! Even though we’re working with a bold brow here, it’s important that we blend a *ton* so it still looks like these brows are our own :) The other end of your professional brush is ideal for combing through the formula once it’s dried. This will slightly soften the intensity of your brows without lessening the impact.
Look at that! Perfectly bold, beautiful brows.
