Perfect Eyebrows

Cream Liner

Farrah said...

Hi Katye,
Love your web site and blog, lots of useful info. Hope to be katye made soon as I am south of Louisville! My question is about eye brows, I have never used a brow pencil or cream or anything to define my brows, but now am curious about the 411 on brows. My brows also seems to stop short (naturally). What are some great brow products and how can I pull the brow out longer without that fake looking line....

There are many avenues to explore when it comes to brows. One way I do NOT recommend is a hard pencil. What looks natural about a harsh line? NOTHING!!! I suggest a powder or cream liner.

As far as length. You can always extend your brows with the product. One way to determine where your brows should begin and end is to line a pencil or makeup brush going vertical along side your nose to your forehead. Where the pencil is on your brow line is where your brow should start. Now, slide the pencil or brush at a diagonal and that is where your arch should be. Next,slide is to the edge of your eye (keeping the bottom of the brush still against your nose) to find where your brow should end.

The powder I use is by MAC. Use with a small angled brush.
Powder is the softest option. It also looks the most natural.

My favorite is cream liner. I use Smashbox. Cream liners are to be used with the same type of brush. I feel I have more control and can make more details with the cream.


  1. Awesome information and very helpful! I love the pics you posted at the top, I dream of eye brows like that ;)!!!

  2. Hi Kayte,
    I got the Smashbox Browtech in brunette with the cream/wax combo and I just love it!! I can't believe what definition it brings to my eye brows and it just seems to make my eyes POP! The angled brush you suggested makes it so easy to apply and extends my eye brow out just enough, but in a very natural looking way. To me, the products and technique you recommended truly add that polished look to my makeup that I have been dreaming of! Kayte... where have you been all my life, LOL!!
