How to Fill in your Eyebrows
Hi it’s Lisa for WatchMojo.com. I'm here with Veronica and we’re going to show the difference between filling-in brows with pencil versus powder.
So number one, we’re going to brush the brow down. That way it’s exposing the roots of the top line. What we’re going into is the medium brown. There’s a little bit of a red under town; this one’s called Brown Derby. We’re taking a small angled brush. This is a Kolinsky sable hair and its very firm, stays in place, deposits well.
So we’re going to start in the inside corner and you notice that I'm not actually trying to make a line. I'm overlapping as I press. And then let me follow-up with is a little spooly brush. You can take an old mascara one, and brushing it through softening the line.
What we can follow-up with afterwards—this is called Candle Light. I'm going to use my pinky just to raise the arch her brow. So you can do that on your self. We’re actually just going to do this and then you’ll find automatically red arches. Take the lightest color, lift up, and run it underneath the arch. And instantly, it gives an eye lift. You look a lot more bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Then we’re going to go into pencil. Hold the pencil, not how you’d hold it if you were writing, but turn it on a side, and just light-feathered strokes, overlapping. When we get to the arch, you might want to do the same thing—lift it; so that automatically gives a little bit of a lift and just elongate a little bit.
Hold the color down. There’s a little bit of a hole; you can go through and fill this in. So the pencil tends to be a little bit more graphic. It’s great for doing a really precise skinny brow. What’s in right now is definitely more the Brooke Shield’s fuller 80’s kind of eyebrow.
What I like about this particular pencil—it’s called Brenda Christian—it’s a universal brow color, and it regulates with your Ph. So anybody can use this color.
If you need to, take a cue tip, run it underneath the brow, run it on top so that the color is contained on the brow—it’s not all spread-out. Finish it afterwards with a little bit of highlight underneath the brow. You can obviously use something that has a little bit of shimmer to get it a little extra punch.
