By now, you probably understand that a little bit of eyebrow makeup can go a long way. What once was an extra step in most of our makeup looks has now become an essential. And while you may be familiar with the benefits of filling in your brows, there’s one eyebrow product you may be overlooking: eyebrow powder. The best eyebrow powder can take your brows from sparse to voluptuous in a matter of minutes. Ahead, get the 4-1-1 on eyebrow powder, including how to use it to achieve ombré powder brows.
In case you couldn’t already tell, eyebrow powder is a makeup product for your brows that comes in a powder form. It’s used to perfect your brow shape and fill in sparse areas to create the appearance of fuller-looking eyebrows. It can also be used to achieve the ombré powder eyebrow look, which involves creating a gradient effect from the front to the end of your brows (more on that later).
When it comes to eyebrow makeup, there really isn’t one option that’s better than the other—it simply depends on the needs you have. An eyebrow pencil may be a better option for someone who has minimal, sparse areas and instead wants to fine-tune their brow shape and arch. An eyebrow powder, on the other hand, works well for filling in more noticeable sparse areas of hair. That said, you can use the two eyebrow makeup products in conjunction for the ultimate brow look.
Speaking of, follow the steps below to put an eyebrow powder to use.
Start by giving yourself (and your brows) a clean slate. Saturate a cotton pad with our L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types and wipe it over your brows to remove leftover product residue, dirt, oils, and impurities.
Next, use a spoolie to comb through your brows. Brush them in the direction you’d like them to lay. This will help you determine what areas need to be fine-tuned.
You can use an eyebrow powder or pencil to define your brow shape. For the sake of this tutorial, we’ll use an eyebrow pencil. Use the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil to trace your desired shape, taking care to accentuate your arch. After you’ve created your outline, brush through your brows again with the spoolie to soften any harsh lines.
It’s time to reach for your eyebrow powder! To create ombré powder brows, start by using an angled brush to lightly create hair-like strokes to fill in any sparse areas. Use a light hand at the front of your eyebrows. As you get towards the tail, build the color to a darker shade. Go in and add more hair-like strokes as needed to create a gradient, ombré transition of shades. Once again, finish by combing through your eyebrows with a spoolie.
If you’re wondering how to keep your eyebrow powder in place, we have just the answer: eyebrow gel. Our L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara in Clear has a gel-mousse formula that will boost volume in your brows while also setting your look. Use the included angled skinny brush to comb the product through your brows and set your eyebrow powder.
To take your staying power up a notch, reach for a setting spray to finish off your makeup look. Mist the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray and Set Make-Up Oil-Free Setting Spray over your face in an “X” and “T” motion to give your look an extra boost.
