How to Fill In Your Own Brows With Makeup

“Eyebrow looks have changed definitely throughout the decades,” noted Jared. “I think now brows are coming back to a bit more of a natural look, which is good for of all us, right?” Duh! As you know, I am all about embracing big, bold brows. Here’s what he told me about filling mine in: “Don't fight mother nature too hard when it comes to filling in your brows. You have to work with what you have. If you have naturally thinner eyebrows, stay as close to the hairline as possible with your brow filler. You can cheat it a bit, so draw a line on the top of your brows, but never below, because that’s going to lower it. So when you're going to fake your fuller shape, fake it from the top.”

To execute this, I dipped an angled brush in the dark gel and then in the lighter powder from Benefit’s Brow Zings kit ($32) and drew a clean line along the top of my brows until I got to the arch. Then I angled the brush down along the top of the slope, creating more of an angle than my natural curve. Once I had my outline, I filled in my brows with the gel-powder hybrid. I finished by going over the hairs with a few swipes of Benefit’s Speed Brow gel ($18).
