While it’s lovely to go to your brow bar for the full shoe shine, sometimes you gotta get the job done yourself and don’t have time for the gazillion steps the experts do. Here are three simple steps to cheating your way to fuller brows, quick as a flash.
While many kits include a brow brush, I still live by the rule of investing in a separate one – these are an essential tool in nailing your brow game.
To begin with, dab your brush into the brow powder before etching the colour onto areas of your brows that need some more density. The current trend is to sport a fuller brow, and a powder like this one from Benefit will hold you in good stead.
Flip the brush so the brush end is vertical and apply powder to the beginning of the brow to mimic real hair before using the brush horizontally along the length of your brow.
Next, using a brow pencil like Revlon’s, which has a waxy finish, will help to not only define the edges of the brow if you’re after a more polished look, but also help hold your brows in place.
Draw lightly in areas that you want to sharpen before using the spoolie brush on the other end to help brush the product in.
