No. 1 Magazine - - CONTENTS -

I’ve been at No.1 since the very first is­sue launched 11 years ago and over the past decade or so I’ve worked with some of the best make-up artists, tri­alled more make-up and skin­care prod­ucts than I could even try to list and have gleaned all kinds of in­sider’s tips and tricks from the masters of the beauty world. Want to know what prod­ucts work, how to avoid beauty mis­takes and what brand you don’t know but MUST try? Read on...

Q: WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO PEN­CIL IN NAT­U­RAL LOOK­ING BROWS?

The trick is to not use a pen­cil that’s too dark – make sure the tone is as nat­u­ral as pos­si­ble (if you’re blonde, stay away from or­ange un­der­tones – you want a pen­cil with ash tones) and no mat­ter how dark your hair is, never use black. To get the best results, use light thin strokes with your brow pen­cil – not heavy lines. Think about try­ing to mimic the di­rec­tion your nat­u­ral brow hairs fol­low. It’s im­por­tant that the ends are more densely pen­cilled than the in­ner edges of your brows (near­est the bridge of your nose), these should be al­most faded look­ing, with very light strokes, mov­ing into a more opaque colour the fur­ther along the brow you go. See the pic ( above right) of Kylie Jen­ner’s brows as an ex­am­ple. Lastly, to get a re­ally neat and clean fin­ish, use a small con­cealer brush (a clean lip brush would do) to ap­ply con­cealer above and be­low the brow. It’s worth men­tion­ing that thread­ing is the best form of eye­brow shap­ing I’ve found, the results are clean and well-de­fined with no ir­ri­ta­tion which will make pen­cilling your brows much eas­ier.
