The secret of her eyebrows lies in the right eyebrow pencil: “There are different types and they differ from the tip: this is what makes the difference for the effect you want to obtain, natural or more defined and bold »he explains Giulio Schettini, National Brow & Beauty Authority Benefit Cosmetics Italia.
The thin-lead eyebrow pencils

With this type it is also possible to work with precision only in the sparser areas or in the edges to give a greater definition of the arch itself “.
Diagonal eyebrow pencils, fur effect
The “hair effect” eyebrow pencils, or Hair Effect Pencil «have a drop tip, they are used by hatching as if you were drawing the individual hairs and are best suited to create a very natural bow because they allow you to work with extreme precision »explains Schettini.

How to choose the nuance in this case? «It is essential that the coloring is as neutral as possible, similar to the color of the mucosa, and that the tip is super thinwith a non-creamy texture to be used to re-outline the contour of the lips without any smudging, both in the inner corners and on the cupid’s bow ‘.
«Also perfect for finishing the points where the pigmentation is most lacking, the effect is that of more defined and plumped lips» concludes Giulio Schettini.
