Hello everyone. Today I am showing how I fill in eyebrows, and the eyebrow products I use. With many of us wearing masks now, the eyes are really the center of attention.
Well defined eyebrows frame our eyes and give us a more youthful look. Thicker, natural brows are the style. However, many of us have been through years of over-tweezing and need to fill in our eyebrows for the fuller look.
With such a variety of eyebrow products to choose from, including pencils, powders, gels, and waxes, it’s hard to know which to choose. The good news is that you can create the brows you want with practice, good technique, and the right products.
After going through many trials, read on for tips and three easy steps to sculpt and fill in eyebrows.

- Starting with clean, dry brows, I start with the Anatasia Brow Wiz. I hold the pencil vertically at the outside of my nostril up to the brow and place a dot there.
- For the arch, slant the pencil toward the iris, and put a second dot there.
- To mark the tail of the brow, rotate it to the corner of the eye, and place the last dot there.
- Finally make little hair-like strokes, filling in any sparse areas. This pencil has such a slim retractable tip that it’s trouble-free. I use soft brown, but there are a variety of shades.
After that I use Anatasia Brow Powder Duo. It comes in a small mirrored compact and contains two colors. I go over the entire brow with it, using an angled brush like the Anatasia Brush #14, applying the powder with long, smooth, light strokes.
Swiping and blending the two shades together makes it easy to create just the right color. Using the lighter color at the start of the brow gives a more natural look. The spoolie on the end of the angled brush is handy for brushing the brow after the powder is applied. For mature women, I prefer a softer look. But it also gives medium coverage for the bolder brow.
For the last step I use Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Gel. It has tiny, tinted microfibers to add color and thickness to brows. Plus it holds them in place. You can use it over the pencil and powder combination, or use it alone.
The long-wearing formula is water-resistant and keeps my brow makeup on all day. It’s available in a wide variety of shades. Gimme Brow is an Allure Best of Beauty Award winner for 2019.
Any of these eyebrow products can be used alone to make a great look. But when I want brows that last the day, I use all of them together. After all, well-groomed brows give us a fresh, polished look. With the help of some good products and proper technique, making my brows was much easier.
