Expert advice on how to
define & sculpt your brows

Monday, December 14th, 2020

Beauty salons are not always open when you are heading to a posh party and want perfectly defined and sculpted brows. So, if you learn how to define and sculpt your brows with brow powders, pencils, and gels you can create picture perfect eyebrows at home. That said if you do not employ the correct technique and expert tips when using eyebrow products, your brows will end up being “painted on” versions that look unnatural.

We have pro tips you can use to get perfectly colored, defined, and sculpted brows. Also, we have information that will help you get the right eyebrow products and kit for applying them. So, keep reading if you want to leave asymmetric, dull eyebrows behind and get Instagram worthy brows that you can flaunt at a party.

Why is defining and sculpting brows important?
You might think that your eyebrow shape cannot be improved once it has been tweezed or threaded by an expert. This is where you and most people are wrong as you can use the right eyebrow powder, pencils, and gels to sculpt and define your brows, and ensure they stand out and not fade into the background.

Invest in the right eyebrow kit
Buying the right eyebrow shapers, tweezers, angled tip brushes, spoolie, and brow scissors are essential. With the right products you can easily trim eyebrows, remove a stray hair within seconds and apply eyebrow powder without making mistakes.

Get the right eyebrow powder color



Experts know that using the wrong color of eyebrow powder is courting a disastrous outcome, and so they use these tips to find the right one.

Finding an eyebrow powder based on skin tone

  • Dark skin comes in various shades, so an eyebrow powder dark brown or an option that is about 1-2 shades lighter is perfect for such people.
  • An eyebrow powder medium brown is suitable for those with olive toned skin as it delivers a striking natural finish.
  • People who have light skin with a pink tone should choose a light brown eyebrow powder, or eyebrow powder putty with an ashy tint.


  • Finding an eyebrow powder based on hair color

  • Brown haired people can choose an eyebrow powder that is one or two shades lighter when compared their hair. In case they have reddish highlights in their hair they can use eyebrow powder auburn as it has a red tint.
  • For those who have black hair, choosing a color that is either 1 or 2 shades lighter and similar to eyebrow powder soft jet black is ideal.
  • Blondes have hair in various shades so experts suggest that they pick eyebrow powder putty which has an ashy tone or use an eyebrow powder dark blonde.
  • People who have mature hair that is graying should choose an eyebrow powder moonstone that has a metallic shine or an eyebrow powder soft charcoal which provides a soft natural finish.
  • Red heads should ideally choose an eyebrow powder in blonde or a color that has a hint of gold in it.


  • How to define eyebrows and sculpt them with brow powder

    Ensure your brows are trimmed
    Use tweezers or a precision brow scissors to remove stray hairs, as this will reduce the need for making corrections when adding eyebrow powder.

    Brush a spoolie through your brows
    Brush a spoolie through your brows and ensure that loose hairs are removed and your eyebrows are flowing upwards.

    Find your ideal brow shape
    Eyebrows are never perfectly symmetrical so you might find that one is slightly shorter or shaped differently compared to the other. So, you need to measure and find your ideal brow shape using the steps mentioned below. Then you can go ahead and define and sculpt your brows, until they match the latest trend that you love.

  • Position a long pencil/brush vertically at side of your nostril. At the point where the pencil touches the brow mark it as the start.
  • Place the pencil at a 45-degree angle with the stem touching the side of your nostril. Then mark the position where the pencil meets our brow as the end of the tail.
  • While looking in the mirror ensure that the stem is passing through the outer edge of the iris. Where the pencil meets your brow, mark the position as the high point of the arch.
  • Cover your brows with a primer
    Once you know the shape and style that you want for your brows you can proceed to use a primer pencil and coat the area. The coat of primer will ensure that pencil strokes and powder adhere to the skin and hair in the area.

    Use a pencil to define your brow
    With a sculpting eyebrow pencil draw short fine lines that are similar to hair, and use them to extend the tail and add definition to the arch. The sharp point of the brow pencil will allow you to easily shape areas along our brows and draw hairs to make them appear fuller.

    Apply one or two shades of eyebrow powder
    Using eyebrow powder and an angled tip brush draw a line at the top and bottom of each brow and then fill the space in between. Powder gives brows a natural finish while a pencil is harsher. While applying powder, you can soften the strokes of the eyebrow pencil. If you use two shades of powder, apply a lighter shade at the edges of your brows and use a darker in the middle. Then brush a spoolie through your brows to spread the powder.

    Give your brows a coat of gel
    Coating your brows with a clear or tinted eyebrow sculpting gel will ensure that the powder does not flake off. Also, the gel acts as a finisher and will ensure that your brows remain styled and set in place all day. In case you use a tinted fiber brow gel, fibers will adhere to individual hairs. As a result, your brows will instantly volumize and sparse areas will be covered up and appear filled.

    Use a highlighter and concealer to sculpt your brows
    With the aid of a 2-in-1 brow definer that contains a universal concealer on one end and highlighter on the other you can sculpt your brows and draw attention to them. The concealer end should be used along the arch and the tail to sharpen these areas around your brow and then the lines should be blended. With the concealer you can also cover up dark circles under your eyes. Using the eyebrow highlighter, you can add lines above and below your brows, and these should start from the arch and end at the tail. After blending the lines of the highlighter your brows will look naturally “lifted” and your face will appear younger, while your eyes will look bigger.
    Savarnas Mantra® creates a range of eyebrow powders in trendy colors, along with clear and tinted brow gels. Our powders, pencils and gels are the perfect choice if you want to apply brow makeup with ease and sculpt and define your eyebrows.

    The Importance of Getting Beauty Sleep

    Thursday, November 21st, 2019

    There’s a perfectly logical explanation behind the phrase ‘beauty sleep.’ Our bodies use the time when we’re asleep to recover and recharge. Getting enough sleep is essential for our well-being, general concentration and alertness but also for our skin and hair. Some people might even say that beauty sleep is the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth. When we get enough sleep, our skin manages to recover and create new cells which are crucial for our youthful look. That’s why sound sleep should be your priority. Beauty sleep is one of the secrets to healthy hair, skin and nails

    1. How many hours should we sleep?
    When talking about amazing reasons to sleep for skin health, the first question that comes to our mind is how many hours of sound sleep is enough? This magical number lies between seven and nine hours a night. However, it’s not all about the amount. What’s also important is the quality of sleep. We can achieve a good quality of sleep by going to bed and getting up at the same time, even at weekends. Sleep deprivation can lead to a tired and exhausted look, dark circles below our eyes, washed-out complexion and more wrinkles and fine lines on our face. It can also cause some inflammatory skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis. Our brain recognizes a lack of sleep as stress, so it has only negative effects on our body and skin.

    2. Tips about our bed and bedroom
    The environment where we sleep is also important. First of all, in order to get a good night’s sleep, your bedroom should be cool, dark and quiet – that’s how you’ll start your good sleep hygiene. Next, your bed needs to be comfortable and your sheets as well as pillowcases made of quality materials that are soft for the skin, such as cotton or silk. Also, you should ensure you are using the best luxury mattress possible. It is best to use breathable cotton sheets and wash them regularly, so they don’t collect dust mites and bacteria and for pillowcases, it would be best to use silk ones to keep your face skin hydrated during the night. In order to protect your bedding from the dust and dirt, it would be a good idea to use quilt covers. That’s how you’ll make sure that you go to a hygienic and clean bed every night. It is also beneficial to keep all the electronics out of your bedroom in order not to be disturbed. Also, make sure to use laundry detergents that don’t have a too strong smell so you wouldn’t be irritated by it.


    3. A bedtime routine
    Before going to bed every night, there are some things you can do to improve your skin. It’s an absolute necessity to remove your makeup. If you don’t remove makeup, you’re risking clogging your pores, which can cause acne and other skin problems. You should use a gentle cleanser to remove your makeup at the end of every day. It’s important to use a cleanser that won’t remove the necessary oils and the acidic environment from your skin in order to maintain its healthiness and barrier. Another thing you should use is an anti-aging cream or a serum. These products have more effect when they’re applied during the repair stage. They help counteract fine lines, promote skin renewal, brighten skin tone, reduce acne and boost your skin’s collagen production.

    4. Benefits of good night’s sleep
    a. A glowing complexion
    While we sleep, our body boosts blood flow to our skin, which adds to the glow when we wake up. However, if we don’t get enough sleep, our face will look washed out and lifeless. That happens because when we lack sleep, our blood flow is decreased to our facial area. That causes our skin to look dull and our cheeks to lose colour.

    b. Less puffiness
    Dark circles around our eyes are something we all experienced when we didn’t catch enough ZZZs. Everybody can notice that we didn’t sleep when they see our puffy eyes. So, by regulating our sleep habits we cause our eyes to be less puffy. Other things that can prevent swelling under our eyes is hydration and the position of our head. We need to keep our skin hydrated at all times, especially when we sleep. If we elevate our head on an extra pillow, it can also help in the reduction of swelling.

    c. Fewer wrinkles
    Preventing and getting rid of a few wrinkles was never simpler – you just need your beauty sleep! But how do we create fewer wrinkles by sleeping? When we sleep, our body creates collagen, which is a chemical that prevents sagging, wrinkles and fine lines. The more collagen you have, the plumper your skin is. If you compare the number of hours you sleep at night and the number of wrinkles that appear on your face, the calculation is as following: sleeping for only 5 hours a night can lead to creating twice as many fine lines as a 7-hour night’s sleep would create. Lack of sleep also makes the skin drier, which makes thee existing fine lines more visible.

    d. More voluminous hair
    Lack of sleep also affects our hair. If we are sleep deprived our hair can suffer and we can experience hair loss, breakage, damage, and even growth can be affected. Why is this so? Hair follicles help our hair grow and they get nutrients, minerals and vitamins from blood flow. And when we don’t sleep enough, our blood flow is decreased. Then hair has difficulty growing. Lack of sleep also causes stress, which creates hormone cortisol which is responsible for hair loss. So, when we keep our beauty sleep regularly, we also nourish our hair together with our skin.

    e. Healthier appearance
    When you sleep for sufficient hours, you also look happier and healthier. Your mouth isn’t dropping, you don’t furrow and frown as much, you don’t have red, swollen eyes, sagging eyelids and paler skin. All in all, people who don’t catch enough ZZZs, look less healthy than people who do.

    Beauty sleep isn’t just a myth – it stems from something real and important for us and that’s why it’s crucial that we understand it’s important for us, our health and appearance in general.

    Product Review + Giveaway!
    One Tribe Apparel Harem Pants

    Tuesday, August 6th, 2019

    First things first I just want to say that I LOVE Boho style, LOVE Thai food, and dream of going to Thailand someday. So I’m very excited to bring you this product review of One Tribe Apparel’s Boho Harem Pants. I chose the Black Classic Elephant Harem Pants because I love that the company gives a portion of their proceeds back to the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai (they also support Thai locals by providing jobs, as all of their pants are made in Thailand – double bonus!)

    I will admit, this is my first pair of this type of Boho Harem Pants, and I was a little nervous trying them on. I wasn’t sure if they would be flattering – especially since there were just two sizes to choose from – Standard and Large. Being petite, I chose the Standard size. And it turns out, they fit great! The waistband is elastic, and the pants themselves are very flowy so having just two sizes makes sense and actually makes it easier so I don’t have to know my measurements and worry about ordering the correct size.

    Comfort! The next best thing other than being stylish, is these pants are soooo comfortable! I’m going on a trip next week and I cannot wait to wear these on the plane. The fabric is 100% cotton, very soft and breathable. That makes these pants perfect for travel, yoga, or just day to day casual wear. They can be dressed up or dressed down which is also nice; very versatile.

    Overall, these are definitely worth the money – they are affordable and you are helping a great cause in the process! The entire process from ordering to receiving emails (and fast shipping!) was flawless. One Tribe Apparel’s customer service was great – they seem like a very genuine company that cares not only about their customers, but about giving back as well.
