Tutorial: How I Fill In My Brows

Hello lovely ladies! :)

I have been putting off this post for the longest time, because in all honesty, my eyebrows are so stubborn and wouldn't cooperate with me. But now, I would like to share with you how I fill in my brows.

As you can see, I have dark, bushy brows. So why fill it in? I am actually not a fan of filling in my eyebrows, but when you take photos, whether flash photography or just a simple photo using your phone, the eyebrows  are often washed out. Our eyebrows frames the face and creates a very polished look. It took me a lot of practice, products and patience to learn how to properly fill in my own eyebrows. I am just so happy that now, I finally know how to do this and hopefully you can pick up a few ideas.

First, let's take a look at the products that I use:

Here are the steps:

1. Start off with clean brows and using a spoolie, brush the hairs down.

2. Line the top part of your eyebrows with the eye pencil until your arch. You may notice that I lined it a bit higher here, this is to match the height of my other eyebrow. I am using the Etude House Drawing Pencil in #02.

3. Once you have lined the top part, brush the hairs up this time and start lining the bottom part. The line that I created is slightly diagonal, with the highest point on the arch of the eyebrows.

4. Now, we can start outlining the tail. How long or how short you wanted the tail to be, it will depend on your preference or what suits your face. Some people say it should line with the outer corner of the eyes, which is most applicable or flattering for everyone.

5. Now, using a dark brown eyeshadow, load up your brow brush and fill in your brows. This will not only set the eye pencil you used to outline the brows, using powder eyeshadow also gives out a more natural effect. Here, I am using the darker shade of my Ever Bilena Matte Eyeshadow Duos in London

For the start of the brows, use little products as you can, so that it looks natural.

6. Lastly, brush the brows using a spoolie to diffuse the color and make it a little bit lighter and natural. And here is the finished look:

And that is how I fill in my brows. You can finish it off with a brow mascara to set the hairs in place, but what I do is stipple some setting spray using my brow brush so that the color will stay all day.

I hope you guys learned something. Let me know if you have any questions by posting a comment below. Until my next post, goodluck!
