The way you do your eyebrows can make or break your look. Some girl tweeze their poor brows until they are skinny as a pencil mark, either purposefully or unintentionally. Some girls wear theirs super bushy! Whatever way you wear them, eyebrows can transform your face. Here are a few brow-filling tips to make sure your eyebrows are on point.

  1. Brow powder vs. brow pencil: In order to fill your brows the best you can, use two shades of brow powder or pencil to structure your brows and give them definition.
  2. Make sure you’re using the right color: Don’t pick the shades that match your brow hair exactly. Instead use shades that are a tad lighter. You also want to keep your skin tone in mind. If you have darker skin you want to use a chocolatey color with some warmth. If you have lighter skin, go for a sandy, light brown combo.
  3. Use concealer to prep: Before you start filling in your brows, take concealer or subtle highlighter and blend it on top and underneath each brow. This gives your brow color something to stick to and defines your brows.
  4. Start under the arch of your brows: Use a small angled eyebrow brush to apply the darker shade of brow color to the underside of your brows on the arch. It frames your eyes! Just make sure you don’t make the arch too high, you don’t want to look angry!
  5. Finish things off: After you are done filling those brows to the best of your ability, use brow gel to hold everything in place. We wouldn’t want you to have Albert Einstein crazy brows at the end of the day!

Hopefully these tips help you shape your eyebrows like a pro!

Brow maintenance is a mystery to me. How am I supposed to know what product works best for my brows? Is it brow pencils? Powder? Gel? Pens? It can be overwhelming! There are so many ways to keep your brows on fleek. Here is a mini guide to the basic ways to fill your brows!

  1. Brow powder: If you want a more subtle, softer look opt for brow powder or a matte eye shadow that is a little lighter than your brows. Use an angled brow brush to outline and fill your brows with the powder using gentle strokes.
  2. Brow pencil: This is the simplest way to shape and fill your brows. They come in many shades so you can find the perfect color to match your brows! If you use short, light strokes to fill your brows it will look perfectly natural.41TwhLB9HbL._SY300_
  3. Brow marker: This is the least popular method of shaping brows, but it still deserves a mention! Brow markers have the benefit of persistence- they stay on for hours and won’t smudge easily!
  4. Brow gel: If you have crazy unruly brows, use brow gel to tame and fill them. You can even use Vaseline to shape your brows if you already have dark thick ones.

Combine one or two of these methods to create the perfect brow routine for you! Get those eyebrows on fleek, girl!

Bold, beautiful eyebrows are a huge beauty statement right now.  They’re a focal point on your face, so they should be treated the same as your skin would when it comes to makeup.  Filling in your eyebrows is sort of an art.  When done right they look beautiful, but when done wrong they can look fake and tacky. Learning the right technique is very important…check it out!Chelsea Crockett- filling in your eyebrows

Before you can begin filling in your brows, make sure they are plucked (check out my article “Tweezing Your Eyebrows the RIGHT Way”).  Once they’re perfectly plucked, choose your filler: brow pencil, brow powder, or a brow cream/gel.  Begin by creating a shape by lightly outlining your brow.  Always stay inside your natural hairline.  Next, fill in the rest of your brow, but be sure to keep it light.  Once you’re finished, brush through your brows with a clear brow gel or spoolie brush.  This will pick up any unnecessary, excess color and evenly distribute it throughout your brow.

Your eyebrows are officially done!  It’s as easy as that…you officially have the perfect eyebrows!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Getting tired of your current look? Want to freshen things up? Here are 3 quick, simple ways to update your look! 

1. Switch up your hair color. Now this doesn’t mean dyeing it electric blue or getting purple streaks in it. What I mean is to make a subtle change, such as highlights or low-lights. A simple, cheap way of giving yourself natural highlights is to squeeze lemon juice on your strands! Once you have applied the juice, lay out in the sun and let the lemon juice do its work!Chelsea Crockett lemon highlights

2. Change up your part. If you normally part your hair on the side, then try sporting a middle part, or vice versa! By changing up your part, you are giving your hair a break from the normal routine. Try experimenting with different parts with different hairstyles to see which one looks best on you!

3. Work those brows. Did you know you can alter your entire look just by switching up your brow shape? Well it’s true! If you normally have rounded brows, you can pencil them in to have a straighter shape. By using a brow pencil you can make your brows into any shape you want! It is amazing how much your brows can alter your whole look.

These tips can give you a fresh new look for the new school year! All of these suggestions are super cheap, super easy, and super quick! Just all around super! If you have any questions about these tips, leave comments below!
