Just like fashion trends, eyebrow trends come and go, Before, we have seen the rise of thin pencil eyebrows that looks barely there. But now, the trend is all about thick, filled in and natural looking brows. But no matter how trendy and fashionable this type of brows have become, many women still find it hard to perfect the art of filling their brows so that they will look natural.
Well, we are here to help you out! Below are simple steps on how you can achieve natural looking brows:
Use the right products
Since eyebrow has become an important part of your makeup look, plenty of eyebrow products to choose from have come to the picture. Eyebrow products used on how to fill eyebrows may range from pens, gels, powders, and pomades. According to experts, the best way to achieve natural looking brows is to make use of either powder or pencils. If you have chosen pencils, opt for one with a fine tip.
Use the right shade
The best tip on how to fill eyebrows is to choose the shade that is closest to your brow color, and these are divided into two types—ash and warm. If your brow color falls under ash, opt for a more neutral shade. On the other hand, warm brows would benefit from either auburn, golden or red shades.
Groom brow to perfection
Next up, you should try to shape your brow first before filling it in. The best way to do this is to either pluck it or thread it. To make sure you maintain the natural look of your brow, you must keep thickness and shape in mind.
Brush your brow upwards
To correctly determine which part of your brows need filling in, use a spoolie to brush your brows upwards.
Use only short feather-like strokes
Now, it’s time to fill! When filling in your brows, follow the direction of the hair growth. Apply the powder or pencil using a light touch to avoid making your brows looking too dark. The strokes must be applied in a staggered pattern, focusing on the area that needs filling in the most.
Fill the front of your brows sparingly
The last part that you should fill in is the front of your brows. For sure, you will be tempted to make it look as thick as possible, but since natural brows are your target here, the best thing that you can do is to apply the product sparingly. In this way, you can avoid the blocky look.
Evenly distribute the product by brushing
And of course, you can never achieve natural looking brows if you won’t blend all the products in. To do this, use a brush to distribute the product that you have applied on brows. To make the brows look less powdered, applying brow gel is recommended.
