There are some people with very light eyebrows, bushy ones, or none at all. Regardless of your brow condition, you can clean them up in a way that makes them appear natural. To do so, fill in your eyebrows using specific techniques, tools, and colors. Having a poor eyebrow wax, going tweezer happy at home, or thinning your brows can leave you with an awkward brow shape.
However, if you already have a great shape and you're looking to enhance your look, several strokes of color can bring out your eyes.
Brush Eyebrows First
Before filling in your brows, use an angled brow brush (also known as a slanted liner brush) to brush your brows upwards. You can also use a spoolie brush, though those are primarily used as a mascara applicator. However, a spoolie works because of its spiraled bristles which can shape brows and blend in eyebrow filler. After you fill in your brows, you can brush them upward again to blend in the color and shape any unruly hairs.
How to Get Natural Eyebrows
If you have dark hair, choose a color that is a shade or two lighter than the natural color of your brows. On the other hand, if you have light hair and are deepening your brows, you can opt for a tone that's a half to one shade darker.
Light brows tend to disappear, especially when wearing a full face of makeup, so they can be more defined with some color. You can easily take care of light and sparse areas with pencil, powder, mousse or this waterproof microblading liquid eyebrow pen pictured below.
When you use a pen or pencil, you will find that they're great for filling in sparse spots. Work their magic by lightly holding the pencil and drawing hair strokes in the sparse areas. You can also use a stiff angled brush here to soften the lines as needed. When it comes to shaping your eyebrows, you want to make sure you get a style that doesn't look too fake or dramatic.
The main thing you want to do is create some shape by using small hair-like strokes. Make sure that the front of your brows aren't squared off or appear too harsh. You also don't want to overextend the tail end of your eyebrow, because it draws your face down. Finally, focus on a simple and smooth arch that isn't overexaggerated or too pointy.
