How to Get Perfect Brows According to Beauty Expert Huda Kattan
July 14th, 2017
Beauty influencer Huda Kattan is admired the world over for her makeup tips and tricks. But her most enviable skill, is how she has perfected the art of shaping. It’s rather funny that what got her obsessed with beauty to begin with, was growing up with sisters who nicknamed her Burt— like from Sesame Street— because of her brows. Today, she is one of the most watched beauty experts on the internet. So if you’re looking to take your brow grooming to the next level, Huda is spilling all her secrets thanks to her latest collaboration with Tweezerman.
“For filling in my brows, I use a darker shade and a shade that’s 1-2 shades lighter of brow pomade,” she told PEOPLE. “I start using the darker shade right before the arch of the brow, until the end to create a slightly elongated tail. Once I’ve perfected that, I use a lighter shade to fill in the start of the brow and connect it with the arch.
Using a lighter shade looks a lot softer and creates a more natural look. I also love to use a brow powder or eyeshadow on top of the pomade to set the brow and make sure it doesn’t move throughout the day. Applying some translucent powder around the brow and ‘baking’ that area will also help keep them in place.”
How to Get Perfect Brows According to Huda Kattan
Huda broke down the 5 steps she takes to shaping her brows:
- I tweeze all brow hairs which are ‘sticking out’. This also includes removing the baby hairs, which helps create a smoother makeup application. I like to remove the hairs from the bottom of the ‘tail’ of my brow, and then when I fill my brows in, I go a little bit above the brow. The combination of the two gives a lifted effect.
- I then use a spoolie to brush my brow hairs up to see if I’m happy with the shape. Once I’m happy, I trim off any long brow hairs so they don’t stick out. This makes them look super neat and helps with better makeup application for your brows.
- Once I’m happy with my shape, I like to use a brow stencil to determine the perfect symmetry, and where to start and end with filling in my brows.
- For filling in my brows, I use brow pomade or gel that’s a darker shade and a shade that’s 1-2 shades lighter than my brows. I apply the darker shade from right before the arch of the brow to the end to create a slightly elongated tail. Once I’ve perfected that, I use a lighter shade to fill in the start of the brow and connect it with the arch. Using a lighter shade looks a lot softer and creates a more natural look.
- I keep referring back to the stencil to make sure I have perfect symmetry, and if there’s any parts of my brow makeup application that is uneven or that I’d like to remove, I use a small Q-Tip instead of foundation, as this makes it look a bit more natural as opposed to a harsh line.
