Step 1: Clean

Tweeze away any stray hairs.

Step 2: Neaten

Use a spoolie to comb through the brows making sure they are uniform and free of any fibers.

Step 3: Outline

Using a slanted brush and an eyebrow pomade of your choice, underline the brow and shape the desired arch.

Step 4: Blend

Using the spoolie begin to blend out the eyebrow pomade dispersing it evenly throughout the brow. Apply more if needed and continue to blend until the preferred density is achieved.

Step 5:

Next, with either a clear or tinted eyebrow gel, begin to comb through the brow in order to hold the pomade in place.
Apply one to two layers, following the angle of hair growth.

Step 6: That's It!

Repeat with the other brow.

Enjoy your newly filled-in brows!

    You can fill in your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil or an eyeshadow. I use the pencil and I use light and quick strokes, but I heard using eyeshadow is more natural looking, so I suggest you use eyeshadow to fill in your brows.
    If you grab a pencil or some other object and kind of measure from the tip of your nose or the end of your eye and follow that line it should be kind of where your eyebrow should end. , &

    I like how you underlined the main part of the brow. It makes it so much easier to find and follow the natural arch. Thank you for sharing.
