EZ Beauty: MAC Veluxe Brow Liner

MAC Veluxe Brow Liner

Why are you so angry? Unbeknownst to you, those harsh looking eyebrows are lending you a frightening disposition. Ease up, calm down, soften your mood ever so slightly.

A stiff eyebrow brush and a pot of eyeshadow in a hair-matching shade is the preferred way to fill in sparse brows, but if you’re not able to paint them in (and you’re excused for this as art class never covered the technique), then you should try MAC’s latest eyebrow pencil.

Le crayon gives a natural, powder-like finish, but is nimble enough to hold like a sturdy #2 pencil. Pressing too firmly will give you an unnatural look, so tread lightly and use small, feathery strokes. Then, use the other end–topped with a spoolie brush–to shape brows into place.

There, you’re looking much happier now!
