If you haven’t seen on my Twitter or Instagram, I posted a lovely picture of one eyebrow filled in, and the other one untouched (You can see it on all my social media platforms @laceandmimosas). I’ve gotten a lot of questions on how I do my eyebrows so I’ve decided to do a quick post on not only how I do it, buy why.
The trend of fuller eyebrows has changed the beauty game a few years back and now, everyone is pursuing the perfect brows. Face it, we all want our brows to be on fleek.
I remember filling in my brows for the first time and thinking, “I look crazy.”
But, the more I watched videos, the more I was able to make it look more natural. The key to filling your brows without looking like you’re the next Cara Delevingne (not in a good way) is by taking your time. From all the mistakes I made, the one thing I realized is that there’s no magic way to quickly slap on some color to get the perfect shape.
Filling in your brows makes your overall look sharper because it frames your face. It commands attention.
Next time you have some free time, try it out and see for yourself how your eyebrows can be a total game-changer.
So now to the fun part – how I do my eyebrows. So because I know some people have difficult brows that don’t understand what cooperation means, I decided to do this on my right brow that is SO DIFFICULT. It never has a normal shape to it. Additionally, I hadn’t gotten my eyebrows threaded for some time, so this post should relate to all the girls who know the struggle. Don’t worry ladies, even with the most difficult brows can have shape.
To achieve this filled-in look, I only used two products, both bought at Target:
The brow sculptor is by Rimmel in Dark Brunette and the gel is by Maybelline in Dark Brown.
1) I start off by taking the pencil and lightly outlining the inner part of my eyebrow, closest to my nose. For this, you’ll want to just follow the hairs and create an outline. Once you outline half of your eyebrow, you can draw the outer tail of the brow a little darker. Think of it as if you’re giving your eyebrow a reverse ombre effect.
2) Next, you’re going to do the same thing with the top. Continue going lighter closest to your nose and darker at the tail. Make sure to follow the hairs to get a natural outline.
3) Go ahead and fill in your entire brow, again going lightly near your nose. Once you do that, you can start drawing in your brows closer to the center in short, light strokes. You want to mimic hairs, so the key is to go very lightly.
