How I Fill In My Eyebrows

Hello everyone!
I have such complicated eyebrows that I basically have to fill them in every day to achieve a nicer shape ( which also makes my whole face look better). Since I also have hooded eyelids, an arched brow helps my face look more lifted and awake I think.




The problem is that the first halves of my brows grow quickly and they get pretty wide, whereas the second halves are just a single line of light hair, which in total looks very weird: thick-thin. That's all.
For this reason I have to fill in, or I'd already say draw on those parts to not look like I've overplucked my eyebrows or something. They just don't grow there and it's a shame.

To fill them in I got myself a beautyuk High Brow Kit from Superdrug, about a year ago I believe. However, only recently I've found a way to make my brows look good/alright.

I use the middle shade.

I try to focus more on the second halves of the brows, as I already said before, because they are the main problem. I start with the bottom edge and just define it, make the lower line a tiny bit longer and then I continue with the top edge: I draw a line from about 2-3mm higher than my brow actually is to create an arch, and I try to draw a straight-ish line down to the first line I've done. I connect them and fill in the space they surround. Of course I sometimes have to take off some of the top part because I've drawn the arch too harsh and my brow looks like this ^. I get really angry when I do my brows because I know that most of the time they still don't look the way I'd like to.
After finishing off the main bits, I add some colour to the inner parts of the eyebrows so that they have an even colour throughout.

Then I'm pretty  much ready.
What I do when taking off my make-up before bed time is leaving the eyebrows drawn on. Maybe it sounds weird but of I take the brow powder off completely, I'd have no idea how to get a similar shape done the next day and I'd freak out.

If I see hair growing back, I only pluck the ones that are outside my drawn-on-brows, so I don't even try to pluck the hair that I actually need to grow.

And what I also wanted to say is that of course you can see that they are filled in and not all natural. But it definitely looks better than the 90's brows. I think.
The brow powder wears off during the day and also at night, so you can see that the filled in arch part is already a bit lighter now than it was when I did my make-up.

Let me know if you have any useful tips for growing eyebrows faster (I also use castor oil from time to time, but it didn't help much so far).

  2. Brows on point! They look amazing. I'm still trying to find a color that really matches my skin and hair color, since I'm a blonde :-)
