Makeup 101: Filling in Eyebrows

This is the second 'makeup 101' post and I thought i'd make this one about filling in eyebrows, cause lets face it you see a lot of young girls scribbling them on and making them look like they were drawn on with a crayon, why not make them look natural??

Firstly you can either use a pencil or eyeshadow to fill them in (or both if you want to drastically change your eyebrow shape e.g making them look more arched etc.) pick the right shade that matches your hair such as the MAC eyeshadow in 'Omega' is a good one for the blonde haired and 'Charcoal Brown' is a good one for more darker haired, and you can mix other shades to make it match your hair colour a bit more.

Eyebrow pencil: First use a spoolie (sp?) to brush through the eyebrows so they're not looking crazy and wild, I brush mine upwards at the front and then slanted at the end, then with small strokes fill in the sparse areas to replicate the look of hairs so that it looks natural. Then brush through the brows again with the spoolie and you're done!

Eyeshadow: When I use eyeshadow to fill in my eyebrows I like to use a small angled brush (such as the MAC 266 or the Sigma E65) and again with small strokes fill in the sparse areas, then use a spoolie to brush through the brows to get rid of any excess powder. It's pretty simple but a nice way to make your eyebrows look a bit more fuller!
