A natural-looking, neat and defined brow can help frame your face and really bring out your eyes. We share some of our top tips for achieving a polished, natural brow look.
Before you pick up your powder or pencil, brush your brows up using a spoolie - try the Brow Groomer in Ruby Hammer's Magnetic Brush Set 02, or if you don't have one to hand, an old mascara wand will work - just make sure you clean off any old product before you get going. With your brows brushed up, you'll be able to see any gaps that need filling in.
For a soft and natural appearance, we prefer to work with matte eyeshadow powders rather than pencils to fill in sparse brows. Whichever you go for, choose a shade that is slightly lighter than your natural brow colour - remember, you can always add more colour to get a stronger brow, but it's much harder to take it away if you make a mistake! Our Matte Shadow in Cedar is a great colour for brows that are blonde, fair to medium brown or red. Darker hair colours could try Matte Shadow in Tornado.
Using short, light strokes which follow the direction of hair growth, fill in any gaps in your brows. If you've opted for powder, try a stiff, angled brow brush. For a natural looking brow, try not to over define or square off the inside corners.
