Reader Question: How do you fill in your eyebrows?

Hi Jamie,

I recently decided that I want to start filling in my eyebrows to make them look fuller. Do you have any tips? It’s so confusing.



Hi Jess!

Definitely. A lot of people with thin brows have been getting microblading done (I did a post here), but for a less permanent/cheaper option, try the below as a best practice.

Step 1: Find a brow pencil that matches your natural brow color.  If you’d rather not bother, you can also use a universal brow pencil. I actually really love the It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil and it has a spoolie on the other end so you’ll be all set with one tool.

Step 2: Use a spoolie brush to brush your eyebrows up. You brush up to see where there are any gaps or thin patches.

Step 3: Fill in the  sparse gaps with the eyebrow pencil.  I use short, light strokes so that it looks natural.

Step 4: Use a spoolie to brush it in: Once you’ve filled in your brows, use the spoolie to brush up and out, making the color blend and your brows look fuller.

Let me know how it goes 🙂
