Creating Delicate Eyebrows

Up to now it seems that only the pros have been able to create newborn eyebrows with fine lines. But YOUR reborn baby can have those incredibly delicate eyebrows too. You will need three things in order to do this: the right tools, the right supplies, and a little practice.

Painting Delicate Eyebrows

Apply just about a ¼ penny size amount of Authentic Reborn premixed eyebrow paint to a flat glass palette.

Next, drag the Authentic Reborn eyebrow brush 5 through the thin film of the eyebrow paint.

Mark where your eyebrows will go as shown in the above image.  Then paint the remaining hairs in between these three. Make them of varying lengths with short ones in between the long ones.

Heat set the eyebrows when you are satisfied.  Remember, you can ADD more brows later but you can't remove them once they are set.  Start sparingly and add more as needed.

Adding Dimension

You can add even more dimension and realism to your baby’s eyebrows by using Authentic Reborn 3d thick texture medium.  This is a much better alternative to rooting eyebrows.  Rooted eyebrows have a tendency to look like wirey old man eyebrows!  Not quite the effect we're going for here. 

Apply a small amount of 3D Thick Medium to the center of a flat glass palette.

Paint on the mix in the same manner as you would an eyebrow hair. Don’t try to paint the mix on every hair or you will lose the 3D effect and have just a clear blob all across your eyebrows.

Removing Shine

Adding a 3D effect can make your baby’s eyebrows shiny but that’s not a problem.

Apply a thin layer of superior shine remover on a cosmetic sponge. Using the cosmetic sponge, pounce the surface of the eyebrows.

When pounced on correctly the shine remover should become invisible and the shine will be gone.
