Not everyone is born with a full set of eyebrows. In fact, some women have scraggly eyebrows form birth, whereas others simply grow into them as time goes by. Fortunately for those who desire the full eyebrow look, it is possible to create your own.
Filling in your eyebrows
The first strategy for filling in your eyebrows is to acquire the proper tools. You will need a small eyebrow brush, an eyebrow pencil, and an eyebrow powder. Women who have fair complexions do best with a blonde shade. Women who have olive complexions do well with a brown shade. Women who have African-American complexions do best with gray shades.
First, brush your eyebrows downward in an even manner. If you do not have an eyebrow brush, you can use a dry, clean mascara wand to accomplish this properly.
Next, you need to define the arch using your eyebrow pencil. Simply draw a line using the pencil along the upper edges of your eyebrows. Take your time. If you make a mistake, remove your line and begin again.
Once you have the eyebrow line defined clearly, brush your eyebrows up and out. You can add in a bit more fullness using your eye shadow. Using a stiff eye shadow brush, preferably one with a bit of a slant to it, dust a bit of eye shadow powder into the hairs of your eyebrow.
This step can be a bit tricky, so take your time again. It is important that you only use a small amount of powder in order to create a blended look. Take your brush and dip it into a very small amount of eye shadow powder. Apply the powder in between the hairs of your brow using short strokes. Avoid using pressure when you apply the powder, but rather, use gentle strokes.
If you have made the mistake of over tweezing your eyebrows, you can minimize the damage now. Simply brush your eyebrow hairs in the same direction that the new growth of hairs is coming in. This should diminish the choppy look. Now, reapply eye shadow powder as needed.
When filling in your brows, you should always avoid adding any depth to the tops or bottoms of the brows with powder. This does not improve the look or the fullness of your brows in an appreciable manner. If you wish to set your eyebrow hairs in place, you can apply a clear eyebrow gel at this point of your beauty treatment.
