Hi guys! I’m back. I haven’t been on a holiday or any sort of vacation and I definitely haven’t been slacking off. I’ve simply been helping my parents out this past week or so and I finally have some time to myself again. I promised you guys a post on Korean eyebrows because it’s the epitome of Korean Beauty and although I don’t consider myself a Korean makeup expert, I’ll share with you guys on how I like to achieve those full structured looking Korean eyebrows.
From the guys to the girls, from the singers to the actors, the one thing that stays true are the Korean styled eyebrows. The Koreans are proud of their strong, thick brows because they are a symbol of
Youth, Strength, Power
I’m not exaggerating here. I find that when I have thinner brows, my face in general looks bigger and more bloated. Thicker brows, have the effect of slimming and framing the face. Thicker eyebrows make me feel like I look younger and more awake. I remembered how the belles during my school days always had naturally thicker brows which I was eternally envious of because my brows were always thin and sparse. Thin eyebrows aren’t easy to pull off and the only ones are the Japanese. I also noticed after working that people with thicker eyebrows seem to command more power. Not ridiculous huge black eyebrows but full, thick and more natural looking brows.
What I am trying to say here is
Korean eyebrows rock
Let’s get started:
1) Getting the shape right
Follow whichever Korean celebrity or pop idol brows you admire. It shouldn’t be too thin or too archy. It’s usually straight across with a slight arch at the outer corner. I find the shape I sketched below to be most flattering for my wider face shape.
I usually take a medium to light golden brown eyebrow pencil to sketch out the outline on bare brows. Pardon my birth mark, I know it can look a little creepy ;P
2) Use the eyebrow brush to blend out the outline
3) Taking a denser angled brush & brown eye shadow color ( I like golden base browns a lot – NYX eye shadows are the best for brows I feel ) fill in your eyebrows with a light hand near the front and be a little more heavy handed towards the tail end of the brow.
4) Your Korean brow should almost be done. You can use a concealor and sharpen up the brow shape if you wish or even alter the shape slightly with your eyebrow pencil. Make sure everything is blended out at this stage because your brows are now the focal point of your face.
I stick very closely to these 4 steps when I am doing my Korean inspired brows but when I am very very short on time I like to use an eye brow pencil to fill it in and brush it out.
I was sent a full sized Bio Oil to trial and I’ve been using it on my body scars for around 2 weeks now. Can’t wait to update u guys!
Also, could you recommend a really good digicam? The color on mine is going…
