|The Shu Uemura 3D Brow Styling Event|
More often than not, when it comes to eyebrow styling, some of us can be; well let's just say a little bit clumsy and need a little guidance to help us along the way. The beauty industry has equipped us with all sorts of tools that helps us stay ahead of the game, but in terms of how to use them; ah that is another matter all together.
The Shu Uemura Brow Palette
|The Shu Uemura Brow Palette|
Introducing the 3D brow styling method by Shu Uemura, the graceful way of making your eyebrows look presentable, polished and on point at the same time. There are few variants products here so let me quickly breeze them by you.
Now what you see above is the new Shu Uemura Brow Palette. It comes in two shades; one in a mix of walnut and acorn and the other a combination of seal brown and stone grey. The two are extremely favorable in my books considering I often opt for using such palettes on my brows; especially for precision. I also find the texture extremely lightweight which makes the quality easier to blend as well.

The Shu Uemura Hard Formula Brow Pencil
|Shu Uemura Hard Formula Brow Pencil|
Ah the beloved Shu Uemura Hard Formula Brow Pencil. This one has been around for ages and has been noted as one of Shu Uemura's Top 5 Favorite Beauty Products besides its renown cleansing oil. It is no surprise too, because the color on these pencils clings on to the brow hairs well and blends like a dream.
The interesting thing about these though is that even though the lead on these pencils quite hard, the pigmentation on these will only come about when you put them on your natural brows. These is due to the natural oils within so don't expect a whole lot of pigmentation when you swatch it on the back of your hand.
Sharp at the tip, the Brow Pencil can be finely reshaped at the Shu Uemura boutiques and counters when it becomes too blunt. This is highly recommended as the staff over at Shu Uemura would know how to get it back to its perfect angle. The service on this is complimentary as well, so do not hesitate to pop on over.

Time to draw and define. Another new addition by Shu Uemura, this 1st pre-shaped naginata (sword) brow pencil mirrors very similarly to the one by Empro. This one is definitely more on the thinner side but its easy and soft beautiful smooth texture allows for effortless drawing to take place.
The Brow Sword comes with a preset sharpener for natural precision and its convenient brush tip also helps blending for a beautiful finished look. It comes in five shades (from right to left; walnut brown, acorn, stone gray, brown and seal brown) and glides on easily on the brow with soft and light strokes.

Shu Uemura has introduced four brow styles to match your style which is natural, sharp (edgy), sweet (feminine) and glamorous. Whatever you choose that works best for your face shape, the list above. will be able to assist you in drawing the perfect brow. Nonetheless, I have also listed a step by step down below, just for reference as well.
How to create the perfect 3 Dimensional Eyebrow:
Step 1: Shade the area for the brow to recreate a natural shadow on the skin; as if created by natural hair.
Step 2: Draw individual brow hair to define brows; precisely draw brow hairs one by one to shape and fill gaps between each hair.
Step 3: Choose a color to match the hair color, adjusting the impression is key for its new look.

|As demonstrated from left to right ( Feminine, Natural, Glamorous and Edgy)|
The four brow styles are definitely iconic but the one that I absolutely adore is in the one in glamorous. That particular brow shape has just the right amount of arch and the perfect amount of thickness. I find that it adds more depth and character to the face and redefines the whole look very well.
Well in any case, if you would like to know more about the looks or Shu Uemura's products or about their brow styles, you can head over to their Official Facebook Page for further details.
