As a self-proclaimed sufferer of "patchy eyebrow syndrome," which, of course, is a name I made up to describe my own face-framers, I'm always grateful to work with smart makeup artists who can work magic. Recently, POPSUGAR was fortunate enough to receive the ultimate offering: the gift of good brows from makeup artist Jorge Monroy. Rather than hogging him all to myself like I usually would, I took a back seat and connected him with six of my colleagues, who were all eager to see how good brows can change everything.
Up ahead, see how six editors experienced the power of the ultimate Benefit brow transformation.
Goals: Stephanie wanted her features to pop.
What happened: Jorge used precisely, my brow pencil to create shape and definition using the ultrafine pencil tip.
Goals: She wanted her brows to appear fuller.
What happened: Goof proof brow pencil was used to create instant shape and the illusion of naturally full brows. The makeup artist utilized the wide base to fill in the largest areas of the brow (front of brow to the arch) and the triangular pointed tip to detail the outer areas of the brow and the brow tail.
Goals: She wanted lifted arches to create an eye-opening look.
What happened: By applying ka-BROW! cream-gel formula with a brush from the cap, Jorge was able to build color and define the shape. Then to lift those arches, he used high brow highlight pencil directly underneath for a more wide-eyed look.
Goals: She wanted to deepen the color of her natural brow and to define the structure of her tail.
What happened: The makeup artist used precisely, my brow pencil to define. A key step was to outline the shape of the tail and then fill it in. Then apply gimme brow to volumize brow hairs and distribute color.
Goals: Coady wanted a polished look.
What happened: Jorge applied goof proof brow pencil for an instant transformation, gliding the wide-angle tip along the brow for instant shaping and filling. By defining the brow and filling in, she was given a polished and refined look.
Goals: Tara was after structure and shape.
What happened: First Jorge used a brow mapping technique to find the start, arch, and end of her brows. Then he used ka-BROW! to shape and define.
