Breaking Down Beauty: How To Give Yourself An Eyebrow Lift In 5 Seconds

By Sheila Arkee

Contouring and highlighting the face is one of my favorite makeup tricks. Being able to change the shape of your face with a little powder, cream, and blending is truly amazing! Transforming your look with makeup doesn’t mean pulling out the whole shebang, however. Here’s are 3 easy steps to give yourself a subtle eye lift that takes all of 5 seconds and just involves a teensy bit of concealer, which gives the illusion of a lifted brow.

Step 1: After applying your foundation, apply your concealer as usual, and also dot a bit right above your browbone. For demonstration purposes, I’ve applied one eye with and one eye without concealer on the browbone.


Step 2: Blend the concealer in with your tool of choice. I can’t speak highly enough about Sephora’s #57 Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush, which is pretty much perfect as far as I’m concerned.


Step 3: Add powder to set and proceed with your makeup application. As you’ll notice, there’s a very subtle brightening and lifting effect to the eye that’s had concealer applied above the upper browbone.


Easy, right? That’s how we are around here at Painted Ladies. Enjoy!

    Nice job. I actually adore that concealer! I didn’t think it would be dry skin friendly but it totally!

    One of my fave tricks. Contouring and highlighting is something I take very seriously. Even on “minimal makeup days” I contour and highlight. Seriously. It’s that important. 😀

    Yay! Now I just need to figure out how to give myself eyebrows, since over-enthusiastic waxers took off the outer half of each almost entirely. :/
    Thanks for the tip!

    Oh girl, I feel your pain! Been there, and my eyebrows are getting thinner as I’m getting older.
