We all know that a huge trend right now is thick, perfect looking eyebrows. As Crossdressers and transgenders, we all enjoy staying up-to-date with the latest beauty trends. However, most of us do not have insider information on how-to master such trends as a genetic woman would. However, this is what Glamour Boutique is here for! We enjoy being your male-to-female beauty insiders.
How to achieve amazing eyebrows
So, to begin you will need just a few things. Granted, mastering a pretty eyebrow look does not take long and will not require many products. Some essentials that all crossdressers and transgenders should have that we suggest are:
This is a two in one eyebrow brush from Ulta Beauty. It comes with the curved fine edge applicator side and the combing side. These are the two most important things to have available when beginning your eyebrow routine. Even though this brush is convenient to have, it does carry a pretty heavy price tag of $24.
Curved fine line applicator. (comes in a set with eyebrow coloring- great value)
Comb brush (this set comes with a lash comb which will work perfectly for your eyebrows as well as your lashes)
The last equipment that you will need is an eyebrow coloring agent. This could be gel, a coloring pencil, or eyeshadow. It all comes down to preference in the end. All these different agents can give you the flawless, effortless look that we are aiming for. I personally have tried them all- and enjoy them all the same. The key to it is, the application. So, let’s get into it.
Hack: Glamour Boutique does provide eyebrow stencils to customers just starting out with makeup and would like some extra help getting the perfect shape to their brows. Here!
Gel Liner- you will need a curved fine edge applicator with this option in your preferred color from your desired brand.
With eyeshadow or any other powder eyebrow product, you will also need a curved fine-line applicator. For this option, you can use any of your favorite eyeshadow in the color that you desire.
However, the product displayed to the left is Glamour Boutique’s Affordable Eyebrow Kit which comes with its own applicator brush.
Eyebrow pencils are great since, you do not need an applicator brush or a comb (however, not all eyebrow pencils come with the comb as well). All you need to make sure of is that your pencil has a nice sharp tip to draw fine lines.
You can get any of these products easily online or at any beauty store close by, as well as any Walmart, Target, etc.
Before you begin, make sure to clean up your eyebrows. (Pluck or wax any unwanted hairs out of place.)
Next, referring to the picture to the right, start with a fine lower line as a base for your eyebrows. You want to make it as straight and perfect as possible. This will ensure that you fill in your eyebrows in the correct spots and will start to give you perfect shape that you want.
Next, draw in your top line beginning in the middle of your top brow. You do not want to start at the beginning of your brow because you want that to fade into your skin and to NOT be as defined as the rest of the brow. So, begin at the middle of your top brown and draw a defined line that connects to your lower line at a fine point at the end of your brows. Try and keep your lines as firm and defined as possible.
Now that you have a nice outline, start shading in your eyebrows starting at the ends of your brows. When you reach the middle of your brows begin to use a lighter hand when applying the color. You want to make sure your brows have dimension and aren’t dark rectangles on your face. When you begin to reach the beginning of your brows apply almost no products at all.
For the last step take your eyebrow comb and brush your brows up and over (towards the ends of your browns). This will blend your color in nice and make it look more natural.
These steps will be sure to have you looking absolutely gorgeous! If you do decide to take this great Crossdressing/transgender tutorial for a spin- send us pictures of your finished work! Please, send all pictures to [email protected]
