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.
