AN EYEBROW ROUTINE FOR PATCHY BROWS

If your brows don’t seem to grow evenly, that’s normal. It’s important to remember that your brows are sisters, not twins, and that a natural eyebrow look should allow them to have their own distinct shape. When using eyebrow makeup, one of the most important steps is filling in. Use our eyebrow makeup tutorial to fill in any sparse areas – and enjoy all day longwear using our eyebrow products!

What you’ll need:
Unbelievabrow Brow Artist Brow Gel

Fill in your patches

Use the doe-foot applicator to lightly apply the gel and fill in any patchy spots using a sweeping motion in an upwards and outwards direction.

Create your shape

Outline your brows and define your arch with the angled brush. Use feather-like strokes to avoid overdone brows.

Blend the product

Comb through your brows with the spoolie brush to blend the product to create natural-looking, seamless brows.

AN EYEBROW ROUTINE FOR THIN BROWS

It's not the end of the world if your brows are a tad thin. Follow this tutorial to learn how to make your eyebrows look thicker.

What you’ll need:
Brow Artist Xpert Eyebrow Pencil
Brow Artist Plumper Eyebrow Mascara

Fill in your brows

Use the spoolie end of the brow pencil to brush hairs up and in the direction they naturally grow. This will make it easier to see what you have to work with. From there, use light strokes to fill in any gaps with a natural look. 

Add volume with brow mascara

Did you know brow mascara existed? It sure does! Start at the beginning of your brows, brushing up and over in the direction they naturally grow. Work your way towards the tails of your arches. This is a great technique for those wanting to capture the coveted feathered brows look. 

Add definition

Using the thicker side of your brow pencil, trace along the bottom edge of the first half of your brow. When working with your tails, use the narrow edge of the pencil. Then blend away!

AN EYEBROW ROUTINE FOR THICK BROWS

Lucky for you, it doesn’t take much to perfect naturally thick eyebrows! The key to keeping thick eyebrows under control is in using a setting brush. Say goodbye to strays and hello to styled!

What you’ll need:
Brow Artist Plump & Set Transparent

Brush your brows

For a full brow without flyway’s, add brow brushing to your eyebrow routine. Simply comb the Brow Artist Plump & Set in an outward direction. Brows are plumped for a full look and held in place using the gel. For intensified fullness, use a coloured eyebrow mascara in place of transparent. 

AN EYEBROW ROUTINE FOR SHAPELESS BROWS

If you’re wondering how to do your eyebrows when they are naturally quite shapeless, then we’ve got the perfect tutorial for you.

What you’ll need:
Unbelievabrow Micro Tattoo Brow Ink Pen
A spoolie brush

Brush your brows

Using the spoolie, brush your brows up and over in their natural direction. This will give you a better idea of what shape you’re working with and the areas that will need to be focused on.

Map your brows

Use your eyebrow definer to help map out your brows. First, align the ink pen with the dimple of your nose straight up towards your brow. Wherever it lands, that’s where your brow should begin, so draw a small dash with the micro-tip to mark your place. Next, align the pen with the dimple of your nose and hold it diagonally up and across the iris of your eye. Wherever it lands on your brow is where your arch should naturally be the highest, so draw another small dash there. Lastly, align the marker with the dimple of your nose and extend it towards the tail end of your brow. Wherever it lands is where your ends should be, so draw a final dash there.

Trace your arches

Now that your brows are mapped, brush once more with your spoolie to confirm direction. Next, hold the point tip of your brow ink pen so that the direction aligns with brow hair growth. The micro tattoo tip draws hair-like strokes for a natural look! Draw out lines between each dash to create a sculpted arch. 

Fill in your brows

To achieve a natural microbladed look, use the micro tattoo tip to draw small, hair-like strokes diagonally along the brow and inner corners. For a bolder look, use the thick, flat section of the tip to fill in your brows.

Add natural-looking definition

To complete your beautifully shaped arches, use the spoolie brush to blend them out for a natural look.

Editor’s tip: Regardless of your brow type, dab a bit of highlighter under arch and towards the tail of your brows. This will reflect light and have you looking bright and glowy for that model look.
