Beginners Guide to Bronzer

READ MORE

We break down how to apply bronzer properly for an envy-inducing, sun-kissed glow instead of a streaky orange mess! Here’s our beginner proof guide for how to apply bronzer the right, radiant way.

 

Beginner's Guide to Bronzer

 

What does bronzer do? Your bronzing goal is to add warmth to your skin, not slabs of colour that resemble a fake tan. Done right, bronzer will frame your face with a subtle glow for healthy, sun-kissed looking skin. 

 

Where Does Bronzer Go?

 

Bronzer isn’t designed to cover your entire face - you’ll end up more orange Oompa Loompa  than healthy, bronzed goddess!

So, where does bronzer go? The golden rule for a golden glow is applying bronzer to the areas  where the sun naturally hits your skin; cheeks, hairline, and temple. To add a little more definition, bronzer can be applied along your jaw bone too. 

Let’s break down how to apply bronzer correctly in each of these 3 places:

Cheeks 

Bronzer gives your cheeks and cheekbones beautiful definition and a lit-from-within glow. Where do you put bronzer on your cheeks? Focus on the apple of your cheek and blend along your cheekbone. 

Step 1: Take a large, fluffy bronzing brush and swirl it into the bronzing powder and tap off any excess. 

Step 2: Run a line of bronzer from your ear to the apple of your cheek.

Step 3: Blend the bronzer out using tiny swirling brush motions. Avoid ‘back and forth’ brush strokes as this won’t deliver the airbrushed, perfectly blended result the swirling motion will. The bronzer on your cheeks should be slightly heavier than your temples and hairline. 

Temples and hairline 

Applying bronzer to your temple and hairline continues the subtle glow from your cheeks for an even, natural look. 

Step 1: Load the brush again, tapping off any excess product.

Step 2: Apply bronzer across your natural hairline by lightly moving the brush in small circular motions, from one temple to the other. 

Jawline

A little bronzer on your jawline gives the illusion of more sculptured features. Remember, bronzer is best used to add warmth and subtle definition rather than a full-on contouring product.

Step 1: With your brush loaded, sweep bronzer along your jawline running from underneath your chin and finishing just before reaching your ear.

Step 2: Next, take a clean brush along your jawline in swirling motions to blend everything together.

 

Tips for Applying Bronzer 

 

Choose the right brush

Using the right makeup brush will make a world of difference when applying bronzer. For an even, natural glow using a dome-shaped, soft powder brush is a foolproof choice. 

We recommend Crown Brush’s selection of cruelty-free brushes for bronzer and blush application.

Don’t be heavy handed

A light touch is key for getting that subtle sun-kissed shimmer. Being heavy handed can leave you with a thick, streaky look. Using a soft brush, as suggested above, helps keep the application light too. 

Remove excess bronzer

Using powder bronzer? You don’t want to go in with too much product at once.

Always tap the brush to remove excess product. It’s easier to build up colour than remove it.

Blend, blend, blend

Bronzer is all about blending for a natural *no streaks here* look. Use small circular motions to blend and make it even easier by applying a very thin layer of loose setting powder before going in with the bronzer.

How To Use An Eyebrow Pencil

How To Use An Eyebrow Pencil

How to Use an Eyebrow Pencil

You asked for it and we’ve delivered! Our easy to follow guide on how to use an eyebrow pencil to fill in your brows. 

It’s no secret. We love a great brow at PONi and have a range of products to help you achieve your dreamiest brows! Before we dive into how to use an eyebrow pencil, let’s take a look at the different options you have for filling your brows.

Brow Creme 

A pigment-rich option for eyebrow makeup, brow cremes offer a smooth, blendable application for fine hair strokes. They’re known for their smudge-proof staying power. 

Eyebrow powder

With eyebrow powder, you can achieve a soft, natural look - it’s a great choice for filling in sparse patches and boosting volume. 

You don’t get the precision of a pencil though, so the best brow looks using a powder are usually a combination of pencil and powder. 

Eyebrow pencil

A favourite for beginners or if you simply love an easy fuss-free routine, the precise tip makes the control of the pencil and application easier. The lightest flick of the pencil can create beautiful, natural arches. 

Tinted eyebrow gel

Tinted brow gels add pigment to your brows with natural looking hair-like strokes and help set them in place. 

Clear brow gels are also an option. While they don’t give a pigment payoff to ‘fill in’ brows, a clear brow gel is ideal to set your finished brow makeup in place. 

So, why choose an eyebrow pencil?

When it comes to control and speed, eyebrow pencil is a winner. 

Pencil lets you quickly fill in your brows with maximum control. Perfect for everyday wear and busy mornings when you should have been out the door…. like 20 minutes ago. 

Brow creams are great if you’re a little more experienced with eyebrow makeup or are looking to achieve a bolder, more Insta brow type of look. 

We love a brow gel if you already have naturally full brows or don’t need to fill in a lot of sparse patches. Eyebrow pencils are a better choice if you’re working with thin, straggly brows!

 

Step One: Map Out Your Brows 

 

Mapping your eyebrows will help you know where your brows should start, end, and arch. How to use an eyebrow pencil correctly begins with this super important step! 

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1: Where your brows should start

Grab a makeup brush and hold the brush at the angle from the corner of your nose, laying it in a vertical line to the inner corner of your eye. This marks the starting point for your brow.

Step 2: Where your arch should be

Lay the brush in a line from the corner of your nose to the centre of the eye. This is where your arch should be.

Step 3: Where your brows should end

Finally, hold the brush from the corner of your nose in a line to the outer corner of your eye. Here’s the spot your brows should end.

Use an eyebrow pencil to make a gentle mark at these points to guide you as you begin to fill in your brows.

 

Step Two: Brush Your Brows

 

Ok, we promise we’ll get to how to draw eyebrows soon (that’s why you’re here, we know!) but brushing your brows first is a simple move that can make a big difference.

Using the spoolie end of a makeup brush - an old, clean mascara wand works nicely too - brush your brows upwards at a diagonal toward your temples.

This quick tip serves a few purposes. It helps your eye area appear more lifted and shows the natural shape of the brow and sparse spots that need to be filled in. 

Brushing also gives you a nice guide to follow when creating hairline strokes with your eyebrow pencil, making brows easier to fill in. 

 

Step Three: Start To Fill In Your Brows

 

We made it to the step you’ve been waiting for, how to use an eyebrow pencil

Go for a shade slightly lighter than your natural hair colour for a softer look; unless you’re really fair. In that case, it's best to go one to two shades darker with your eyebrows.

Slightly darker brows will frame your face and enhance your eyes more than really light eyebrows.

Starting at the inner corner of your eye, the spot you marked at the brow mapping step, begin to fill in your brows. 

Use gentle, small flicking motions in the direction your hair grows naturally to create tiny hair-like strokes. It’s easy to achieve realistic looking hair strokes with an eyebrow pencil, one of the reasons we love them!

Work your way from the inner corner out to the tail of the eyebrow. 

 

Step Four: Brush Out Your Brows Again 

 

Now you’ve applied brow pencil, brushing your brows a second time helps blend and disperse the colour. 

Blending the pigment with your brow hairs means there’s less of a contrast between your skin and hair. The result is more natural looking, less angular / theatrical looking eyebrows.

 

Step Five: Set Your Brows

 

Don’t underestimate the power of the last step in our how to use an eyebrow pencil cheatsheet - setting your brows. 

It’s the final genius step in eyebrow perfection.

Using a clear brow gel, gently sweep it along the hairs. This ensures your brow makeup stays put all day and literally takes less than 30 seconds to do! Minimal effort = big payoff. 

 

Products You’ll Need 

 

Brow Magic

Got your head around how to use an eyebrow pencil but still stressed about finding the right shade? Brow Magic is a universal brow pencil that solves all your colour uncertainties. 

Thanks to the ‘magic’ of its taupe undertone, this long-lasting pencil adapts to suit the pigment of different brow colours. This allows it to deliver a colour match to suit all - blonde, brunette, auburn, strawberry blonde, and darker-haired beauties!

Brow Love

An alternative yet equally awesome choice to pencil eyebrows is Brow Love.

This a long-wearing, oval tip brow pencil delivers soft looking brows with 5 shades to suit all hair colours. We describe Brow Love as a ‘soft brow’ pencil because it helps you create a beautiful soft looking brow with all day staying power. 

Trying to decide if Brow Love or Brow Magic is the best eyebrow pencil for you? Read The Difference Between Brow Magic and Brow Love to help you choose.  

Zebra Gel

This is the clear brow gel you need in your kit! 

Zebra Gel is perfect for setting your eyebrow pencil or, if you have naturally thick brows that don’t actually need makeup (um, lucky you!) use the gel to simply set your natural hairs. It’s a great way to pull off a polished look sans makeup. 

Feeling more confident on how to apply eyebrow pencil? We hope so! Once you’ve nailed these techniques, natural looking yet polished brows are a breeze.

Before And After The White Knight Mascara

Before and After The Amazing White Knight Mascara

 

Meet your lash saviour….The White Knight. 

We step you through how to create show stopping lashes with the only mascara you’ll ever need.

Before we get started just make sure your lashes are clean. If you like, you can curl your lashes first but The White Knight creates such a gorgeous curl you really don’t need to!

 

Step 1: Add Volume to Your Lashes 

 

Here’s how to apply mascara with serious volume using The White Knight!

The *secret* of this mascara before and after transformation is its two-step application wand. The first step is designed for volume and the second for length.  

The volumising mode delivers more product to the lashes and the water-resistant "tubing" formula encircles each lash with its own pigmented polymer tube. 

These clever smudge-proof tubes keep the volume right up all day and night - without any flaking. 

 

 

How to apply the White Knight: Volume

Begin with the volume step by unscrewing wand further down the tube for volume mode.

Next, starting at the bottom of the lashes, wiggle the wand back and forth to coating the base of your lashes. This wiggling motion helps keep the lashes separated. This trick for how to apply mascara properly makes a big difference!

Now move the wand upwards to the tip of your lashes, coating each one.

Want a really dramatic before and after mascara result? Keep building with extra coats of mascara until you’re happy with the volume.

 

Step 1: Add volume to your lashes

 

Step 2: Lengthen Your Lashes 

 

What’s better than gorgeous thick lashes? Gorgeous thick long lashes. 

Let’s add length! 

 

How to apply The White Knight: Length

Unscrew the wand in Length mode - at the top of the tube. The trick is the *2* wands are actually the same one. 

When you switch to Length mode, it simply pulls all the excess product off the wand from Volume mode. 

The excess product stays inside the tube so there is no wastage!

Using the wand in Length mode allows you to get up close to the lashes and push excess product right to the lash tips - this lengthens them.

Run the wand from the base to the tip of the lashes to maximise this effect. 

 

Step 2: Add Length

 

Step 3: Enjoy! 

 

Behold - the lashes of your lashiest, lash dreams. You’re welcome. 

Removing The White Knight 

There’s no panda eyes in this before and after mascara love story. 

Ready for the quickest, easiest mascara removal you’ve ever experienced? The White Knight tubing formula is designed to slide off easily with Just. Warm. Water.

That’s right - no makeup remover or cleanser needed. No tugging or pulling either. 

Epic thickening, lengthening, water-resistant mascara that comes off without the messy drama? Dreams do come true.  

Get The White Knight in your life.

4 Eyeliner Looks We Love

4 Eyeliner Looks We Love

4 Eyeliner Looks We Love

READ MORE

Bold, unique, or subtle. Take your pick of these 4 eyeliner styles we love and how to achieve them!

 

BOLD WINGED LIQUID LINER

 

Bold Winged Liner Look

 

Winged eyeliner looks are timeless and totally worth learning how to perfect.

Step 1: Start your bold eyeliner winged look by tight lining your lash line. This technique simply involves lining the waterline on your upper eye. This creates the subtle illusion of more defined lashes. 

Step 2: Next, line your entire upper lash line. You can make this easier by starting in the middle and working your way out. 

Pro tip: Sit down while you apply the eyeliner so you can rest your elbow on a flat surface. This steady hand hack is genius. 

Step 3: Then work your way from the inner eye to the middle. 

Keep the line thin towards the inner eye and make it thicker as you extend outwards. Make it as thick as you like depending on how bold you want to go with this look. 

Step 4: With the upper lash line done, it’s time to do the wing. We suggest using the ‘card trick’ to get the perfect wing. Take a clean piece of cardboard - the size of a credit card - and lay it against your eye on a diagonal angle for your wing. 

Draw your wing on the eyelid using the card as your guide. The idea is to actually take the line along the card, so when you remove it, you’re left with the perfect flick and crisp edge!

If you plan to draw your wing free-hand, start off small and gradually add onto it to avoid big mistakes.

 

 

GRAPHIC EYELINER - ARROW

 

Graphic Eyeliner Look

 

This unique eyeliner look is the wing...and then some!

Add a little cool creativity to your eye makeup with the graphic eyeliner look. Don’t be intimidated to try this, it’s actually easier than it seems.

Step 1: The first part of this look is drawing on your winged eyeliner. So go ahead and follow the steps in the tutorial above.

Step 2: Next, starting from the middle* of your eye draw a second line just above the crease to connect with the end of your wing to create the arrow shape. 

*You can extend the line further towards the inner eye or shorter than the middle. The further towards your inner eye, the more dramatic the look. 

Step 3 (optional): You can really turn up the drama here by filling in the space between the two lines with a pop of bright look-at-me eyeshadow. 

Step 4: Finish with mascara.

 

A good tip for cleaning up any lines or little mistakes with liquid eyeliner styles is to use a clean cotton bud and clean it up with oil-free makeup remover. This works like a charm!

 

 

SUBTLE LIQUID LINER 

 

Subtle Liquid Liner Look

 

You don’t need to go bold for look-at-me eyes.

We love the subtle liquid liner look for work or everyday wear. It’s simple but still gives your eyes a lift that leaves them looking spectacular but not overly made up.

Step 1: Using an eyeliner pencil, line your entire upper waterline then your lashline. Using a pencil for this step keeps the look natural. 

Step 2: Time to add a little more definition with the liquid liner. Take your liquid liner and draw (or use the connect-the-dot technique) a very thin line from your inner eye taking it to your outer lashes gradually thickening the line to create the wing. You can keep the flick small or extend it further. The longer the wing is, the less subtle the result. 

Step 3: Finish with mascara.

 

Pro tip: A liquid liner that delivers a thin and precise line is a must for this look! This makes PONi Pegasus Smudge Proof Liquid Eyeliner the perfect choice.

 

 

REVERSE EYELINER LOOK

 

Reverse Eyeliner Look

 

This look gives all the glory to your lower lash line. It’s your best eyeliner efforts...in reverse.

It’s one of those eyeliner looks that might seem a little complicated but don’t worry, you got this!

Step 1: Take your liquid liner and line your entire bottom lash line - really close to the lash line. 

Step 2: Extend the line beyond the corner of your eye to create a ‘reverse wing’.

Essentially, use the exact same concept as you would use with your normal winged liner. The only real difference is that you are focusing more on the wing starting from beneath. 

Step 3: Line underneath your lower waterline just like you would line your upper lash line.

Step 4 (optional): You can line your upper lashes too, or keep your upper lid makeup really simple to let your bottom lash line shine.

Step 5: Finish with a coat of mascara on your upper lashes 

 

 

Try these different eyeliner styles with PONi Pegasus Smudge Proof Liquid Eyeliner 

Easy to use, the quick-drying formula doesn’t run for effortless, smudge-proof lines without the stress!
