La Femme Professional Wooden Eye and Brow Pencils have been an important staple in many Hollywood pro makeup artists’ kits for decades, and with 13 of the most famous true and rich colors that other makeup companies often imitate but never duplicate. These professional grade pencils have great balance, like a brush, because of their length and ability to deliver perfect coloring results. You have complete control: using light pressure for soft color, or firm pressure for stronger color effects.These pencils define and enhance eyes with rich true colors that can be worn under or layered over with shadow for different effects. Use them to create a nice sharp and even eyeliner line, whether you want it thin or thick. Or, create a soft and subtle, smudged smoky looking effect with long lasting pigmented results. La Femme pencils are perfect to use for filling in sparse brows, adding definition to the overall shape, strengthening natural brow color, or simply give brows a well defined arch. The high wax content gives this pencil great staying power even in hot weather. Also perfect to use for theatrical character work, or makeup special effects. The pencils sharpen nicely to a precise point and deliver rich, consistent color for true definition results. Sharpen with a standard size makeup pencil sharpener. Pro Tip: Taupe is a color every pro loves and has in their kits because it is so extremely versatile for many skin tones, and perfect for both eye and brow definition. We recommend that you warm the pencil point a bit before using, or draw it across a soft surface to get a good release of pigment going first. Also, it's recommended to put the pencils in the freezer for 15 - 20 minutes before sharpening to get a fine point result.
