How To Fill In Eyebrows in 4 Easy Steps - Maybelline

Perfect eyebrows are rarely something one is born with. They're made. A little comb here, some clever shading there, and a finishing swipe of brow gel go a long way to turning even the puniest brow into something lush, arched and magnificent. But... how exactly? Here, makeup artist Whitney Wiley gives us a step-by-step tutorial on the secret art of faking perfect brows from home with three key products.

  1. HOW TO FILL IN EYEBROWS STEP 1: BRUSH & OUTLINE BROWS

    Brush brow hair up with a spoolie brush to figure out exactly where you want to fill them in. Then, use a slim eyebrow pencil to draw symmetrical “twin” outlines of each eyebrow. Start at the bottom of the brow and lightly outline the natural shape of your brows

  2. HOW TO FILL IN EYEBROWS STEP 2: FILL IN BROWS

    Using two different shades of eyebrow pencil, one lighter, one darker, fill in the brows. Use the darker shade to fill in the outer brows starting at the arch, the lighter pencil to fill in the inner brows. Use light, short strokes that mimic natural hair growth.

  3. HOW TO FILL IN EYEBROWS STEP 3: BLEND

    Using the spoolie brush, brush upwards and outwards through the brow once more to gently blend the pencil strokes with the natural brow hairs. Now, gently brush through brows with brow gel using short, upwards strokes.

  4. HOW TO FILL IN EYEBROWS STEP 4: CLEAN UP EDGES

    For clean edges and a uniform finish, trace the outline of brows with concealer, blending well.
