How to Use Brow Mascara How to Use Brow Mascara How to Use Brow Mascara

It’s official: Bold brows are in. This is one beauty trend that isn’t going to die anytime soon, which means it’s about time you learned how to achieve them on your own. You may not think that eyebrow makeup is the easiest to apply—sometimes it can be as challenging as liquid eyeliner—but it’s well worth taking the time to learn how when you consider the transformative ability of good-looking brows. Seriously, the perfect pair of eyebrows can totally change your face! If you’re ready to learn how to use makeup on your brows but don’t want to attempt anything too complicated, let us point you in the direction of a brow mascara. You’re already an expert at applying regular ol’ mascara, and this isn’t much different. Brush it on and your brows will look groomed instantly. We won’t even ask if that sounds appealing—we know it does! You can find out how to use our best brow mascara below. Plus, stick around for a helpful guide on using other eyebrow makeup.

How to Use Our Brow Mascara

Ready to get started? You’ll need the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara. The gel mousse formula easily glides on to brows to boost volume and set for a natural to thicker look. Plus, it offers all day wear! Here’s how to use it.

Step 1: Clean your brows. It’s always best to start fresh. That means even if you’ve recently washed your face, you’ll want to make sure there isn’t any lingering makeup on your brows. Saturate a cotton swab with a micellar water, like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types, and swipe it over your brows.

Step 2: Apply brow mascara. Now you’re ready for the main event. Use the angled skinny brush in short, upward strokes to boost volume.

Step 3: Build to desired intensity. Don’t stop yet. Continue moving the brush through your brows until you’ve reached your desired intensity and shape.

How to Use Every Kind of Eyebrow Makeup

Once you’ve mastered brow mascara, you might figure you have all the others on lock, but that isn’t quite how it works. They’re all different! In case you want to branch out—or combine your brow mascara with another product—here’s a refresher on how to use the rest of our most popular types of eyebrow makeup.

Eyebrow pencil: Eyebrow pencils are a classic for a reason. Not only are they easy, but they give you lots of control. With the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Shape & Fill Mechanical Pencil, all you have to do is outline with the edge for precise lines and shade with the flat side for even coverage, then use the tip of the pencil to define the tail.

Eyebrow crayon: If you’re interested in a softer-looking brow (don’t worry, it can still be bold), opt for the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Kabuki Blender. Fill in brows using the tip of the crayon and build to your desired intensity before blending with the kabuki blending brush.

Eyebrow pomade: Pomades aren’t only for your hair. The L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Frame and Set is a waterproof pomade that’s meant for your brows. To use it, dip the brush lightly into the pomade. Outline your brow and define the arch. Draw in brow hairs in sparse areas with the brush's angled tip and fill in to your desired intensity. Use the spoolie to comb and blend your brows.

Eyebrow highlighter:  One of the most important areas on your face to illuminate is beneath your brows. While you can use the same highlighter that tops your cheekbones, there are also products just for your brows. The L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Raiser Highlighter Duo comes with two shades, one to highlight and another to conceal. After filling in your brows, trace the concealer around the edges to define and sharpen your brow shape. Apply the highlighter above and below the brow arch, then blend for a natural finish.
