I’ve been requested on How I fill in my eyebrows a few times. There’s really not much technique to it….
My biggest secret is just a medium brown and dark brown eyebrow powder. Sometimes I like to use a light brown pencil too, but one of my biggest hates about an eyebrown pencil is the fact that I need to sharpen them all the time.
I hate sharpening pencils. It used to be fun in primary school, but when you’re 22, it isn’t so entertaining anymore. I’d rather powder or pen any day!! Even the retractable pencils don’t do the job! They are never sharp enough to draw precise lines for my brows.
Step 1: Get your brows professionally shaped. I stress the importance of this.
Step 2: Groom your eyebrows by brushing through them with an eyebrow brush. Concerntrate on brushing the hairs along with the direction they grow.
Step 3: Using an angled eyebrow brush, use a medium brown shadow to fill in middle of your brows, where the arch starts and slowly work inwards toward the front of your brow. This creates a gradient to your brows so that they are darker on the ends and lighter at the front.
Step 4: Using the same brush, take a darker brown and fill in the tail of your brow. Extend if necessary.
I don’t know much about eyebrow shaping, so I can’t really give 2 cents on that. I’ve waxed and tweezed my own brows many times before and even though it looks fine to me the first few days, it always grows out as a diasaster.
