Fill in Your Eyebrows

Edited by Hotelier, Amanda, Eng, Anonymous

Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, I will show you how you can fill in your eyebrows using an eyebrow pencil. You may have a special eyebrow pencil in order to complete this task, but I'm using an eye pencil performing double duty as both an eyeliner and an eyebrow pencil. I've not yet found a specifically made brow pencil that looks completely natural for me. For this tutorial, I'll be using the MAC eye pencil in Coffee, which is a dark rich brown.

Steps

  1. 1
    Line the pencil up with the inner corner of the eye and the outer corner of the nose.
    This helps us determine where the eyebrow should start. It should start about one inch above the inner corner of the eye.

    Find the arch.
    Ours is a little bit bare.

  4. 4
    Line the pencil up along the outer corner of the nose and the outer corner of the eye.
    This helps us determine where the eyebrow should end.

  6. 6
    Trace the brow using light strokes, starting from the inner corner and working up to the arch.
    Fill in any blank areas. For us, this will be mostly at the very beginning of the eyebrow and up in the arch, moving over to the end. We will deposit less color in the fullest part of the brow.

  7. 7
    Fill in the arch.
    We will make ours just slightly thicker, since it is a little bit of an extreme shape.

  9. 9
    Repeat the same process on the other side.
    For this tutorial, we will skip the steps where we measured, and go straight to filling in the brow on this side. After we have lightly deposited the color, we do need to blend it in to make it look more natural.

  10. 10
    Pick up a spoolie brush.
    It looks like a mascara wand. Ours is by MAC, and it's #204.

  13. 13
    Moving along the brow, brush upwards and outwards, towards the outer edge.
    This will help blend in the color and make it look more natural. We should not see the drawn-in lines or dots.

  16. 16
    Sit back and examine the results.
    Look for any areas that might need any additional blending, and go back over them with the spoolie brush. In this demonstration, ours looks pretty good.
