IMG_5587.JPG

Eyebrows on Fleek are some of the many praises given to perfectly arched and filled eyebrows (on Instagram). The brow trend is one of the biggest beauty trends of 2014 and whether you have a preference for bushy looking ones or arched ones, there are some products needed to achieve the perfection you desire.

We caught up with some MUAs from Nigeria to find out their best products for eyebrow shaping and got 4 recurring answers.

Want to know what products they listed? Read Below:

IMG_5586.JPG
*Anastasia Brow Powder Duo

1. Brow Powders

This product gives a volume to brows by giving a natural uniform volume. This is the best type of brow product recommended for an amateur or makeup newbie as precision is not often required with application. Please note that color selection is very important when choosing an eyebrow powder as it should match the color of your brows perfectly. Shop For Brow Powders in Nigeria

*YBF Automatic Eyebrow Pencil

2. Brow Pencils

Is the most popular product when it comes to eyebrow shaping. Brow pencils however are best for correcting bald patches and lifting arches rather than filling brows entirely (especially if you prefer a more natural look). For precise more defined brows and arches, make your brow pencil as sharp as possible. Use blunt pencils for more natural looking arches.

* MAC Brow Set

3. Brow Gels

The brow gel is one of the best kept secrets of MUAs. This product helps set your brows after filling and ensures that no hair goes out of place all day long.

Brow gels can also be used by individuals with bushy caradelevingne-esque looking eyebrows that do not need any extra filling but taming.

Quick Tip:

*Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Fix

4. Brow Waxes

This is the newest, most advanced brow product to hit the scene. Brow waxes mostly come in waterproof formulas to keep brows in place even underwater. This product may be used as a corrector pencil to cover serious gaps prior to brow powder application and is also used to add definition and lift brows in replacement of a concealer.

4 PRO MUA TIPS FOR THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BROWS EVER!

IMG_2547.JPG

Nigerian celebrity and professional Make-up artist, Banke Meshida-Lawal is known not only for her clean signature looks but also for her creation of exceptional looking brows.

Here, she shares her top 4 tips for creating the perfect brows.

1. USE A TWEEZER OVER A RAZOR BLADE. Soften skin before tweezing by dabbing with a cotton ball soaked in warm water or cream. Always tweeze in the direction the hair grows.

2. LESS IS MORE: Don’t change the place where your brows peak and never pencil the whole brow. Instead, only fill in holes.

3. BLUNT IS BETTER: Use only the side of a sharpened brow pencil—not the pointed tip—so as not to draw a hard line.

4. UNRULY DUTY: For unruly brows, apply hairspray to an old toothbrush,and then brush brows upward and outward.

BONUS TIP
Invest in an eyebrow stenciling kit if you prefer a more natural look to brows. Shop Brow Kit in Nigeria Here

IMG_8703.JPG

Beauty Blender, Beauty Blender, Beauty Blender, you see these egged shaped make up sponges everywhere you look; from your local Make up studio, local beauty supply to online shops.

Wonder what a Beauty Blender is? Look no further, as we dissect why it’s one of the best kept MUA trade secrets and an absolute must-have make up tool for you.

IMG_8702.JPG

What is a Beauty Blender sponge?

A Beauty Blender sponge is a teardrop shaped make up applicator sponge created by top hollywood Make up Artist Rea Ann Silva. The Beauty Blender is specially designed to blend foundation seamlessly into skin without leaving the unsightly marks and streaks usually seen with sharp edge applicator wedges and brushes.

How is the Beauty Blender used?

The Beauty Blender is a versatile beauty tool for seamless foundation application. It can also used for applying other types of liquid make up such as Concealers, cream blushes and even to contour and highlight.

Guide to Using The Beauty Blender

For a more perfect finish, the beauty blender is best used when damp, as this reduces product wastage and leads to an easy flawless make up finish. Soaked in water, this beauty tool can swell an added 30% of it’s original size.

Here is a video guide from make up and beauty guru Nicole Guerreiro on how to use the Beauty Blender.

Step 1
Squeeze excess water from the sponge to ensure that it’s not wet but damp.

Step 2
Bounce Beauty Blender against your face when applying make up. Bouncing, called stippling in the make up world, blends make up without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin.

Step 3
For hard to reach spots such as areas around the nose, mouth and under eyes, use the Beautyblender’s pointed side.

Step 4
The round base of the beauty blender should be used for foundation and blush on the larger areas of your face such as your forehead, cheeks and chin.

Quick Tip
Applying make up with your fingers? Use the Beautyblender to smooth and refine your make up to provide a clean finish.

THE BEGINNERS GUIDE TO PERFECT WINGED EYELINER IN 4 STEPS

IMG_8123.JPG

The perfect cat eyeliner is ever fashionable, very flattering for most eye shapes and delivers a sultry, mysterious look even when the rest of your makeup remains understated.

When paired with a red-lip, this look transforms the most unsuspecting tom-boy to the perfect girly girl and that’s why we love it! View our top eyeliner picks available for purchase in Nigeria.

Read on to find out how to create the perfect winged eyeliner look in 4 easy steps.

IMG_8119.JPG

STEP 1:
Starting at the middle of you upper lid, begin drawing a line as close to your lashes as possible. This line determines the width of your eye liner depending in how dramatic (thicker) or subtle (thinner) you want it.

Creating a straight line requires a bit of practice. You can either draw a single-stroke line or many short strokes, starting from the inner corner of your eye and moving towards the line you just drew, draw a fine line.

STEP 2:

To create your eyeliner wing, draw a line starting from the last lash outwards. You can now decide the length & angle to your eye liner.

IMG_8121.JPG

STEP 3:

After drawing your wing, draw a line back to your upper lash line. This should create an empty triangle on your upper lid. To make you eyeliner thick, draw a bigger triangle, ending at the middle part of your lash line. For a more subtle look, draw a small triangle that finishes in your outer corner.

STEP 4:
Color in the triangle with your pencil.

Finish off this sexy look with 2-3 coats of lengthening, thickening black mascara.

RECOMMENDED EYELINERS

If you are a beginner, we recommend that you use either:

1. A liquid eyeliner with stub rather than that with a felt tip as it will allow you more control. You can switch to the felt tip when you perfect your skills.

2. A gel eyeliner with an angled brush.

3. An eyeliner marker or pencil can also be used to create the desired effects.
