The first stage in the process is to pluck your eyebrows as normal, or leave them a little thicker if you want a bolder, more defined effect. Before plucking, I brush my eyebrows with a clean mascara brush. This ensures that all the hairs are brushed in the right direction before you begin to attack them. Trust me, this makes a huge difference when it comes to the accuracy of the finished result. I then pluck using tweezers by a brand called Two's Company that I have already blogged about here. If you happen to have any redness beneath your eyebrows after plucking, soothe with a cool, damp cotton pad and apply foundation to the affected area to hide imperfections.
The next stage is to pencil your eyebrows in. The eyebrow pencil I have been using is MaxFactor eyebrow pencil in ebony and I would thoroughly recommend it as it blends really nicely to give a natural finish, and lasts all day. As you can see from the picture below, it comes with a little brush on the lid but this isn't particularly helpful. The mascara brush works a lot better.

If you want to keep your eyebrows looking polished for longer, you can always apply a little hairspray to your finger and run it over your brows to hold the hairs in place and seal in colour.
