Let's talk about brows baby

Now a days with instagram and other social media there is a trend of exaggerated brows. Now those might be good for the few, they don't really work for girls that want to look more natural. The trend is moving to a more framed looked instead of the brows being such a strong feature. When you fill your brows in they are the perfect frame for your face and can really add a more youthful appearance. Today I am going to share with you my favorite products I use for myself and clients and a few tips to get you on your way!

These are some of my favorite products I use. Now there are different brands of course that will work just as well, but these are my tried and true. 1. Anastasia of Beverly Hills brow gel, 2. brow wiz and 3. brow powder 4. Tweezerman dual sided pencil for highlighting

Step one: If you have time get your brows cleaned up by a professional so the shape is perfect for your face. They are a lot easier to fill in if they are in this condition.

Step two: Brush your brows down so you can see the natural line of your brow. Start with either the pencil or powder at the arch. Use small, gentle strokes to fill in the brow down to the tail. Most of the intensity in color should be in this area because we want the definition to be the greatest on the arch and tail. 

Tip: I use a pencil on brows that are more fine and need more definition. If you already have full brows and are looking for just a little bit of structure use powder in two colors so you can get the most natural finish

Step three: After you have filled in the arch and tail move to the top of the brow, closest to the nose, with the hairs still brushed down. Here you will want to use even a lighter hand. Using the same small strokes work your way along the top of the brow to meet the arch.

Step four: brush the brows in the normal direction so you can see where you are at. Then follow the bottom of the brow from nose to tail to complete the structure. Continue to brush the brows through so the powder or pencil blend with the hair. If you see you need a little more filled in, in spares areas then now is the time to do it.

Step five: Use a highlighter under and over the top of the arch to get that finished look. Blend with your finger. Using your finger here will help the product melt into the skin with the warmth of your body heat

Step six: set with a light brush through of brow gel to get all day wear!

Remember brows are sisters not twins ;) Tag me on instagram to show me your brow game!! @ellelearyartistry

Classic beauty hits the carpet

My amazing client Julie Ann Emery hit the red carpet last night for the #MadMenBall. We wanted to go very classic yet modern. We felt the look needed a little edge. So I first prepped her skin with Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl. I love to use this on the outside points of the face, cheek bones and chin. Then I put Becca Cosmetics Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector in her T Zone. I just wanted to make sure she had a glow but didn't look too dewy. Then I combined Dior Airflash with Jouer Moisture tint for the perfect coverage


     Tip: If you want medium to full coverage but only have a full coverage foundation, mix a little tinted moisturizer or regular moisturizer into your foundation to sheer it out!!


For her modern smokey eye I used my finger to rub Jouer long-wearing cream shadow in Night sky from lash line to right above the crease. With a small brush I brushed on Dior cream shadow in Cosmos along the top and bottom lash line for a little more intensity and drama. Highlighted the brown bone with a matte eggshell shadow and a ton of mascara!


    Tip: If you want a more lived in look to our shadow use your finger to smudge the cream product into the lid. It isn't as clean as using a brush which will give you that undone-done look!
