You know those spreads in fashion magazines where they highlight a particular actress or model’s style over the years? They’ll show her in red car gowns for the past couple of decades and decide which looks were the best. While I like seeing the style evolution, what always gets me is the change in eyebrows! You probably remember the leap from late 90s/early 2000s thin, high-arched brows and the total transformation of today! In high school and college I started experimenting with different products to make my brows fuller. And while they’ve grown a bit fuller on their own over the years they still need a bit of help! I’ve found a couple of easy tips for perfect brows that I’ve been using over the years, and while I certainly wouldn’t say I have perfect brows, I think these tips could give them to you! :)
I thought I’d do a quick video to show you my process of filling in my eyebrows. It’s easy and requires pretty much zero skill, which is about on par with the way I do my makeup! I’ve got a couple of helpful little tips in there that might help you change the way you do your brows too!
The basic take-away? (Other than I need to take more naps and wear makeup when doing videos.)
- Brush brows down (not up!) before filling in. It lets you see how your hair naturally grows so you can see where to fill in.
- Eye shadow works as a brow filler! It stays put all day, isn’t waxy-feeling, and a shimmery shadow will add some dimension and texture without looking like you just stepped out of Justice. (The ultimate shopping destination for the 10-12 year-old girl.)
I use both Anastasia Brow Wiz Brow Pencil (in Taupe) and brown shimmery eye shadows from Urban Decay. (It’s probably 75% eye shadow and 25% pencil.) The ones I use in my palettes (Stun and Radar) aren’t available to purchase individually but are similar to Thunderbird:
and Twice Baked
I know a lot of people love Glossier’s Boy Brow but I think it’s probably a better fit for people with fuller brows.
That’s it! Do you have favorite brow products? Or maybe just a fun beauty tip to share? Let me know!
