How to Draw Your Eyebrows Like a Pro Using Pencil or Eyeshadow (Video Tutorial)

STEP 2: Fill in the brows, to create the illusion of real brow hairs

Use a dark brown eye pencil to shade/ fill in between the lines you drew. The correct technique is to fill, using short and light hair-like strokes in the direction of the brow hair growth. Use short, light feathery strokes (one stroke at a time, not long strong lines), while along your natural brow shape and arch. This would make sparse or thin brows appear fuller, while adding definition to the brows. In place of an eye pencil, you can also use an eyeshadow or brow powder, using an angled brush.

STEP 3: Brush out and repeat 

Use a spooly brush or an old mascara brush to brush out the eye pencil colours. This will spread out the colour pigment and make the brow filling look even lighter and more natural. Continue brushing out with the spoolie until the brows are in the shade you desire.

STEP 4 (Optional): Clean Up the Edges of the lines with a Concealer

This is the step that makes your brows look excellently done – use concealer to clean any mistake.  Take some concealer in a small flat brush, and apply to the under / bottom of your brows to clean up the edges and remove excess or overdrawn colours or mistakes. This will give a clean, professional definition to your brow bones and also highlight the brow top.

*Be sure to blend the concealer downward and brush out the from the front of the brows. This would make the applied eyebrow colours spread out evenly and look more natural, you know, a gradient affect. With that, you’re done!


You Can Achieve Full Eyebrows Even If You’re Not Born With It

It’s true that a good eyebrow makeup can frame a face and make even a simple makeup look perfect, rather than ordinary. By applying the skills taught in the above how-to-do-eyebrows video tutorials, you too can have better looking brows that will make you look prettier.

Perfect eyebrows are not only for those born with naturally thick, aligned brows. Even if you have sparse brows or mistakenly over-shaved your brows, with the right colour of eye pencil plus a skill on how to fill in brows, you can still achieve a near-natural looking eyebrows that will enhance your facial features – no matter the shape of your face or eyebrows. The above video will make you an expert at doing brows.

Professional makeup artists start by shaping a bride’s eyebrows because your eyes are the window to your beauty, and the focus of your wedding day makeup. A professionally filled eyebrow makes the eyes pop, and can transform an ordinary looking bride to a glamorous beauty. Your eyebrows frame your eyes, add expression to your face, beautifully define the face and significantly improve your look. Besides, a professionally shaped or tweezed eyebrow can make you appear younger.

The days of the thin brow are over, and the natural looking, full brow is back. The thick eye brow looks really natural when drawn well. In pursuit of the perfect brow, women, including brides-to-be, sometimes land at the wrong shape when they shave their eyebrows. Some women mistakenly shave their brows crooked, with each brow looking very different from the other and one looking somewhat scanty.

  1. Am very light an albino,so makeup tends to look a little too showy on my face.(if you know what I mean).asides from finding the right foundation color,lipstick color etc,I also have problems finding the right eye pencil color!!…its really frustrating.
    And also the fact that I can’t seem to get the brow shape no matter how hard I try,…doubly frustrating.
    Pls help!!

    • Dear Stephanie, I feel your struggles – trust me, you’re not alone. Here are my suggestions – in fact methods that I used myself:
      (1) One of the best ways to find the right foundation shade, as well as the best lip/ eye makeup colours is to visit a big makeup shop where they offer testing to help customers find matching shades.
      (2) Another way is to go to a makeup artist store and pay for a makeover. Makeup artists usually have so many foundation shades for diverse skin shades, including your cute albino shade; plus they know and have the eye pencil colors that will match different skin shades (even yours). >The makeup artist will test different foundation shades on you, until s/he finds the one that matches you. >>After they do the makeover on you, ask them the names and colour shade of every single item used on your face (foundation, lipstick, eye pencil, eyeshadow etc.). Write them down and keep buying those. >>A good idea is to take a snapshot of that look, and then try to recreate it by yourself, from time to time.

      (3) On the brow shape: Just watch how they do it for you at the makeover, and look at the photo or selfie you took that day, and then try to copy that eyebrow shape.

      Hope those tips help.

  3. I am dark skinned, I hard get my brows to be very obvious, how can I achieve that…?

    • Hello Cassie, if you follow the steps in the videos above, you will see that when your draw your eyebrows, they will be ‘obvious’. Maybe your current eye-brow pencil is too light for your complexion, try using a good dark brown eye-brow pencil (not black) – cheap but good brands that are largely available in the markets include Jordana and Davis, or you can buy any of the ones mentioned in the videos above. So, follow the video steps and tell me how it works.

  8. i hv a small lips, pls which type of lipstick makeups can i use?

    • Hi Marcyndy, all lips – small and big – are cute. Generally, bright coloured lipsticks will make your lips appear bigger AND dark lipstick colours generally make lips look smaller. So, you can buy lipstick colours depending on how big or small you want your lips to look. Try it out and let’s hear how it went.
      Thanks for commenting.
