How to Sharpen Your Redhead Automatic Eyebrow Pencil

Keep Your Pencil Products Precise

Updated: November 2nd, 2023

We added a new product to the Finally Have Brows redhead eyebrow makeup line. It’s the long-awaited Ultra Fine Brow Pencil! It has an automatic fine liner with a built-in grooming brush to create incredibly natural-looking redhead brows. 

From eyeliners to lip liners and brow pencils, it’s much more common these days to see your beauty products in an automatic twist-up form, rather than the traditional pencil style that was used for decades. If this is your first time using a retractable pencil product, you might notice it can get dull even with the automated ability of twisting up for new product. However, this style of product leaves us with one problem, how the heck do you sharpen it?

Traditional pencil products were sharpened using a small cosmetic pencil sharpener. This gave you a nice point for a more precise application. With automatic twist-up style products, you can often find yourself with a dull end that doesn’t give you the control you’re hoping for. But fear not, here are 2 ways to give yourself that precise point you want.

Here are some sharpening tips for you:

1. Before application 

This is the fast and easy way to sharpen an automatic liner. All you need is a clean napkin or tissue. Take a tissue and lay it on a hard surface. Then rub the sides of the tip across the tissue all the way around until you get a point. 

2. When applying

Rotate while using: The best way to keep your point from dulling is to make sure you’re rotating the pencil as you use it. Avoid putting too much pressure on one side or the top and use all sides evenly. 

Overall, automatic pencils are the way to go. They’re fast, easy and eliminates the need for a traditional sharpener. Have you tried Finally Have Brows Ultra Fine Brow Pencil yet? Don’t miss out.
