How to create fuller, natural-looking brows with a pencilWhile some women are blessed with naturally full brows, other ladies require the assistance of makeup to enhance sparse arches. Unfortunately, it’s no secret that crafting defined yet natural-looking arches can be difficult.

However, when armed with the right products, filling in your brows can be relatively simple.

Let the color of your arches determine the shade of brow pencil you select. According to O Magazine, ladies who possess light-colored brows should opt for a pencil that is two shades darker than their hair color, and those who have dark arches should use one that is two shades lighter.

Lightly line the upper and lower edge of your arches with a pencil, and fill-in your brow with short strokes, the publication advises. Next, run a spoolie – a wiry brush, similar to an unused mascara wand – over brows to soften and blend the color. Finish by brushing on a clear brow gel or mascara to keep the color from smudging.

GloMinerals gloPrecision Brow Pencil is available in four shades and features a spoolie on one end. If your pencil does not include a brush, however, the news source recommends using Tweezerman Brow Shaping Brush.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19930261-ADNFCR
