Question: What are some different ways to fill in your eyebrows?
Answer: We’re all constantly looking for ways to achieve those perfect, Cara Delevigne-esque brows that seem ever-elusive. Luckily, with an abundance of eyebrow-related products flooding the market lately, its more than achievable. Here are some of different ways to fill in your eyebrows — you’ll make Cara herself jealous!:
First thing’s first: having well-maintained brows will make the filling-in process so much easier. Investing in a good tweezers and regularly removing stray hairs is a key step that can make all the difference in how the brows look once filled in. Tweezerman have some great and affordable maintenance products. Paying regular visits to get your brows professionally waxed or threaded is also a great way to make sure you’re maintaining your shape and arch correctly.
One of the most popular options for filling in brows is, of course, using eye shadow. Benefit Brow Zings is a great all-in-one product that boasts two shadow options to achieve that perfect, natural look. Using an angled brush, pick up a small amount of shadow by lightly dipping the brush in and tapping off any excess. Starting at the bottom of the brow, create small, hair-like strokes upwards, concentrating on sparse areas. For a more defined look, focus on the bottom line of your brow and along with the arch.
If you’re looking for a quicker option that will give you a more defined look — brow pencils are your match. The same method is used here, creating small upward strokes to mimic the natural hair. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil is raved about in the beauty world – and for good reason too. It’ll give you red-carpet worthy brows in under two minutes!
If your brows are more on the thicker side naturally and you don’t have too many sparse areas, a brow gel on its own is perfect for you. As one of the newer methods to hit the beauty scene, there are plenty of new and innovative products to leave you with beautiful brows. Benefit Gimme Brow and Maybelline’s Brow Drama are two great time-saving products that lightly fill the brows in while sculpting them into shape.
The final step in your brow routine is to make sure your brows are neat and well-defined. Use a concealer slightly lighter than your skin tone underneath and over the arch to ensure a smooth and consistent line, and to highlight and complement your shaped brows.
