Beauty Hack: How to Get Fuller Natural Brows

If I ever show up late to dinner, it’s probably because I had to take my time to perfectly fill in my eyebrows. If you think I’m kidding, think again. Eyebrows are no joke. They shape the face and complete any beauty look. My goal is to achieve bold, natural-looking full arches like Maripier Morin. But unfortunately, my natural brow hairs are super fine and I have a lot of sparseness along the tail.

Filling in my brows is difficult, as one bad move can make them look obviously drawn on and not all products work in my favour. So instead of filling in my arches completely, I’ve been trying this new technique that gives the illusion of naturally full brows.

Here’s what I use:

  • A spoolie
  • Soap
  • Shiseido Eyebrow Styling Compact
  • Joe Fresh Universal Brow Crayon
  • Urban Decay Brow Tamer

Step One: The first thing I use is soap. Yes, soap! Soap is the only product that actually holds my brow hairs in place. After wetting a spoolie (the end of a precision brow pencil works too), I just run it over a bar of soap and brush my brow hairs upward. This will instantly make the arches look fuller.

Step Two: After my brows dry, I draw hair-like strokes along the sparse areas of my brows (the end and the front) using the Shiseido Eyebrow Styling Compact. This  powder is super light compared to a pencil, so it’s easy to build boldness without it looking boxy. The key to this step is using a light hand.

Step Three: I then take the Joe Fresh Universal Brow Crayon and go over the meatier part of my brow (where I have the most hair). This crayon is really light, so it makes a great base for the fuller parts of my brows without taking attention away from my natural hairs.

Step Four: Lastly, for extra hold, I set my brows with Urban Decay Brow Tamer. This clear gel is my ultimate must-have.

BONUS TIP: You can quickly sharpen the look of your arches by apply concealer along the edges of your brow.
And voila! Fuller-looking eyebrows. Remember to always focus on working with what you have and the natural shape of your arches. It’s the key to achieving brows that slay.
