Define your eyebrow shape with a concealer
If you want defined eyebrows, then your best bet is to use a concealer, preferably one that’s a shade lighter than your complexion. However, the one aspect most women struggle with when using this technique is making their brows look natural. Just watch this video and that struggle will be a thing of the past.
Start by working an angled brush into an eyebrow pomade and draw a subtle line starting at the beginning of your brow to your arch. As you fill in your brows, remember the goal is to mimic the look of natural hair, so use small, short and rounded hand motions to recreate hair strokes. For the piece de resistance, grab your favorite concealer to clean up your eyebrows. Simply dip your flat brush into your concealer and apply it closely underneath your brows. It’s important to maintain a straight line once you’ve reached this stage. If it’ll help, mark three spots beneath your brow to help you connect the line. Use the pad of your finger to blend out the concealer for a seamless look.
