Sparse Eyebrows? No Problem! How to Create The Illusion of Luscious Brows

Bold brows make a gorgeous beauty statement this holiday season, framing the face and drawing attention to the eyes.  But that doesn’t mean you can get away with just letting them run wild, without any grooming or maintenance. The most beautiful brow is defined, full, brushed, and not at all woolly, scruffy, or neglected. Achieving ravishing eyebrows is not that difficult, even if your brows are thin or sparse.  You just need the right tools, and I have that all sorted out for you:

Serum: start now with a daily-use serum to build up the hair follicles and to stimulate growth. I like Shiseido Full Lash and Brow Serum, and as an added bonus I use it on my eyelashes as well to help them recover from any damage they sustain when I wear eyelash extensions.

Fine Hair Pencil: While it takes a little practice, using an ultra-fine pencil to draw in individual eyebrow hairs is amazingly effective at giving the illusion of fuller brows.  I am a big fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, with it’s fine tipped pencil on one end and brush on the other.  I have used this for a while and I now have the technique down to under one minute for both brows to achieve a look that is ultra-realistic.  It comes in ten shades so there is one to suit just about everyone’s skin tone.

Fiber Gel: adding microfibers to the eyebrow hairs that I actually have makes them fuller.  I like Hourglass Arch Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel for its tinted gel formula that comes in six different shades.  It helps lock the shape and style in as well, for a look that lasts all day.

Brow Gel:  if you already have enough natural eyebrow hairs you can skip the fiber gel formulas.  I like Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows Eyebrow Gel which comes in four shades, and creates a very natural look, using a micro-fine precision brush that reaches even the tiniest of hairs.

It’s all about the brows this season and it’s definitely a go bold or some home situation, but it really is possible to get luscious, full brows with a little effort.  Find the shades that work for your skin and hair color and take a few minutes to practice getting a natural arch with individually drawn hairs and set them with gel.  Fix any mishaps with makeup remover on a swab.  Full brows look sexy, healthy, and youthful.  Yes, please.
