Essential Tips

  • Use an eyebrow pencil or powder that matches the color of your own eyebrows. If you have pale or blonde eyebrows use a color that is only one or two shades deeper than your natural brow color—this prevents a fake or drawn-on look.
  • Brush the brow up with a brow comb or toothbrush.
  • Whether you are using a pencil or powder, follow the basic shape of the existing brow, using the tweezing guidelines above.
  • Apply the color by filling in the shape of the brow between the hairs where needed.
  • As much as possible, work only with the hair that is there. The idea is to shade rather than draw on eyebrows.
  • Fill in only at the front or underneath the brow, or through the brow itself.
  • Do not place your brow color, whether it is pencil or powder, more than onequarter inch away from where the natural hair growth stops. This would accentuate the fact that there is no brow there in the first place!
  • Do not forget that eyebrow color should look shaded and soft, not like a straight, hard line.
  • When applying brow gel, brush the color through the brow in much the same fashion as you apply mascara to the eyelashes. Brush the wand through your brows, being careful not to get the product on the skin and not to leave the brows standing straight up. It will probably take you a few applications to get the hang of it.
