This is one of the biggest brow gems that I can share with you because not only do I always do it on my clients, but I also do it daily on myself! The first part of the brow can be more sparse or even grow in a different direction than the rest of your brow hairs. Because of this, it becomes a dead giveaway when you fill that area in. But there’s a way to include that area without looking like you did! Here’s how:
- Your Favorite Brow Shadow: It can be a gel or a powder because both are blendable. I used Anastasia DipBrow Pomade Waterproof Brow Color because I’ve been obsessed with it since the day it came out!
- An Angled Brow Brush: Pick one that is nice and stiff like Estee Lauder Eyeliner and Brow Brush which I particularly love because it’s also an incredible liner brush, while most of the time the two aren’t interchangeable.
- A Spooly Brush or Disposable Mascara Wand: Laura Mercier Brow Grooming Brush is a go-to in my kit but you can also use a disposable mascara wand.
- Swipe the brow brush against the brow shadow then give it a stroke against the back of your hand a couple of time so to smooth it out. Determine the length of the brow base (you can just eye it, you don’t have to measure it!) then split it in half. From that point, start filling in the brow by mimicking brow hairs with quick upward brush strokes as you move towards the tail.
- Line the tail a few times by drawing quick brush strokes outward and slightly downward, following the direction of the hair growth.
- Now here’s the trick! Place the spooly brush over the ENTIRE brow base so it covers the half that you left bare as well as the half that you filled in.
- Press the tip/end down slightly then “pull” it towards your nose. This pulls some of the product over the bare part. Then continue pressing it back and forth to smear it across the area while blending it at the same time.
