Permanent makeup, Easy Tricks to Getting Your Best Brows Ever

How long does it take for you to put makeup on your Eyebrow? One of the biggest struggles of women is shaping their eyebrows. That’s because shaping your brows require skills, talent and patience. It usually takes several tries before you can get the shape you want. Celebrities are lucky because they can afford to pay professional make-up artists to do their brows whenever they need to go to special events but for ordinary people like you and me, paying someone to do your makeup is not really part of your to-do list especially if you need to put on makeup every day because of work.

Here’s a little secret that will completely change your life forever – give microblading a try. While there’s certainly nothing wrong learning how to apply makeup on your eyebrows, we just thought that you might want something that’s permanent (well, technically it lasts for 2 years the most) and convenient (say goodbye to eyebrow makeup).

Microblading or makeup, here are several easy tricks to give you beautiful eyebrows.

When Using Makeup

You may have noticed that some girls look like a character from the movie Angry Birds because their eyebrows look too bold and too thick and then there are women who have very weird looking eyebrows because they literally just look like a single straight line. We can’t blame them because perfecting your brows is really challenging. Thankfully, there are kind enough makeup artists who are willing to share tricks and tips to help you get your makeup right. Here’s how to do it:

Draw a thin upside-down arch that’s shaped like a V. This will serve as your guide.

To know where you’ll start filling in the bottom of your brow you can get a sheet of paper and place it at your nose bridge and point it towards 10:00 or 2:00 depending on which side you’re applying the makeup on.

Once you have created the line at the bottom you can start filling it in using a flecking motion from the bottom towards the top arch line.

The next step is to draw a line from the center of your arch all the way to your temple. Don’t stop yet when you reach the edge of your eye. Add around 4 cm from the edge of your eyes. Don’t curve it downwards.

For a more natural look, don’t put too much eyebrow powder on the front of your eyebrow but instead keep it light.

When you follow these steps coupled by watching YouTube video tutorials you can easily visualize how it’s done. With a few trial and errors, it wouldn’t take long for you to finally get it right.


Another way of prettifying your eyebrows is through microblading. Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that will help you achieve the best eyebrow shape of your life for years! It’s the perfect investment for someone who, no matter how many video tutorials you watch and how many blogs you read, you’re still dissatisfied with your makeup skills.

The process involves the use of a hand-held tool that looks like a pen. At the tip are tiny needles usually around 10 to 12 that are used to make small cuts on the top surface of your skin. The needles are very fine and are used to embed the pigment on your epidermis. The strokes have to be precise in order to create realistic hairlike lines. Once the wound has healed and the pigment has faded a bit, you will appreciate the beauty of microbladed brows.


Whether you wish to apply makeup on yourself or hire a microblading artist, we are confident that these tips can help you achieve flawlessly perfect eyebrows. Just remember, practice makes perfect.
