How to Fill in Eyebrows for a Natural Look


Some people don’t have any eyebrows at all, some have very light or bushy ones, or neither. An awkward brow shape can result from using too many tweezers at home, getting a bad eyebrow wax, or thinning your brows. Regardless of the state of your brows, you can fill them in using particular methods, tools, and colours to make them look realistic.

However, these methods don’t just apply to brow blunders. A few colour strokes might highlight your eyes if you have a fantastic shape already and want to improve your appearance. Light brows often fade away, especially when wearing a full face of makeup, so adding some colour can help define them. 

First, brush your eyebrows

Use a brow brush or spoolie to brush your brows upward before filling them in. A spoolie brush can be utilized in this situation, even though it is often used as a mascara applicator. Its spiralling bristles may mix in eyebrow filler and sculpt brows. Once you’ve filled in your brows, you may brush them upward once more to smooth out any stray hairs and blend in the colour.

Pick a colour

If you have dark hair, choose a tint that is one or two shades lighter than the natural hue of your brows. On the other hand, you might choose a tone that is a half to one shade darker if you have light hair and are deepening your brows.

Choose the Correct Products and Tools

When buying goods separately, consider whether an eyebrow powder, pencil, or mousse would work best for you and your brows. It will take some practice when you’re first starting out to figure out which tools suit your brows the best and how to apply the product appropriately for the best results:

Get a stiff, angled brush if you’re applying powder. The brush’s strong bristles provide you with excellent control when applying the substance and defining the form of your eyebrows. Following the direction your hair is growing, apply the powder at an angle.

Those who decide on a pencil will discover that they work well for filling up blank spaces. Draw hair strokes in the bare spots while holding the pencil loosely to let them do their job. If necessary, you can also use an eyebrow brush or a stiff angled brush to soften the lines in this area.

You can conceal grey brows, rapidly deepen hair colour, and add some holding power by choosing a mousse. Just apply mascara to your lashes and stroke it onto your brows; don’t apply several coats.

Utilize Products Carefully

Make sure a mirror is nearby. Regardless of the technique you select, exercise caution and avoid using excessive amounts of the substance. Also, don’t apply excessive pressure to the skin. It’s usually simpler to add colour than to take it away. This type of fine-tuning will assist you in controlling your product so that you don’t unintentionally go overboard. Stand back and examine your brows in the mirror while you are shaping them. This will enable you to determine whether they appear balanced and natural.

It will appear as though you painted on phoney eyebrows if you discover that the colour you selected is too dark or the wrong tone. Asking your salesperson for testers is nothing to be afraid of.  It’s hard to tell how the product will look on you and your brow hair by simply glancing at the tube or colour printed on the package.

Create a Perfect Brow

Think about how your face shape would be best complemented when it comes to structuring your eyebrows for a natural (as opposed to dramatic) look. Your primary goal should be to give the image some structure by applying short, hair-like strokes. Make sure that the front of your brows don’t look harsh or squared off. Additionally, avoid overextending the end of your eyebrow, which can make your face look slack. A simple and smooth curve is preferable than an arch that is overly pointed or exaggerated for a natural appearance.
