It’s no secret that your brows are one of the most important features on your face. But unless you have years of makeup experience under your belt, filling in your brows to look as natural as possible is not an easy feat. Too much product can make them appear unruly and messy, but too little might not make a big enough impact. If this part of your everyday makeup routine is still full of mystique, you have come to the right place. We’re laying out the detailed steps and products you need to fill in your brows like a professional.
First things first, a shaped brow is a great place to start. If you are a beginner when it comes to eyebrow grooming, we recommend clicking here before you over-pluck. When it comes to actually filling in your brows, start by brushing each hair in place. When it comes to choosing the right shade, we always recommend your color match with your actual eyebrow color as much as possible. But if you ever have a doubt, it’s always better to go lighter than darker. If you want your brows to look fuller and denser, try opting for apowder formulation for a natural look. However, if you need to restructure your brow by adding an arch or extending the tail, a pencil is going to give you the best results. Just ensure this pencil is sharpened for the most natural results.
Whether you are wielding an arched brow brush or the pencil itself, it’s important to apply in light, hair-like strokes. Don’t apply too much pressure or it will end up looking too harsh. Additionally, be sure to follow the natural direction of your hair, working your way from the inner portion out towards the tail. After your brows are filled in, go back in with a spoolie or brush to blend out any harsh lines. You can choose to set your hard work by applying a setting spray or by using a clear brow gelto keep your look intact.
