Brows bring a polished look to your glamorous or natural makeup look. Here is how to fill your brows like a boss.
Start With Your Canvas
Before you fill in your brows, you need to make sure that they are well groomed. While you do not want them to be too thin (severe) or two bushy (unkempt), slightly sculpted brows show off your eyes. Full brows are very popular these days and work for all face shapes.
If you get your brows waxed or threaded professionally, be sure to check for any stray or baby hairs when you get home. If you prefer to take care of your eyebrows yourself, use your tweezer to shape them until you are happy with the finished look. Sometimes really thick brows may even need a slight trim with an eyebrow comb and scissors.

Now you are ready to use a high-quality makeup product to shade some fullness into your brows. There are two things you need to determine: what formulation you prefer and what color best suits your eyebrows.
If wondering how to fill in your brows is stressing you out, do not fear. Today’s product options give you many different choices – such as pencils, gels or powder – that are easy to apply and look natural. Start with a light application and layer if you want a more dramatic look.
A perpetual favorite is the Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil Rich Brown or Taupe. This amazing slanted pencil can be used either on the blunter side or at the tip so you can control how much color you put on.
Start at the bottom corner of your brow, closest to the nose, and draw tiny upward strokes to fill in the brow until you reach the outer edge. Then, again with small strokes use the brush end to help distribute the color while you coax your brow hairs into place.
Those women who prefer a gel formula gravitate towards the Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper Hair & Touch Up in Blonde. This little tube packs a power punch as the powder-based color nourishes your brows while delivering the fuller look you desire just above your eyes.
