These days, every beauty guru slash influencer seems to be blessed with the perfect pair of brows. It’s easy to feel a pang of jealousy when you look into the mirror and see those sad-looking gaps between your brow hairs. The truth is, not everyone is blessed with perfect brows that look good the minute you wake up. Even those enviable brows on social media need the help of certain brow products and tools to look picture perfect.
There’s no need to feel bummed if you were born with sparse brows. It’s not the end of the world! There are a lot of eyebrow makeup in the market that can elevate your brows, and help you achieve the look that you’re aiming for.
Even though brow products come in different forms with different applicators, they are all meant to do the same thing - to give more life to your brows by making them look fuller. Whichever product you will end up buying would prefer solely on your preference and the kind of help that your brows need.
Filling in Sparse Areas
The most common issue that most people have when it comes to eyebrows are those pesky looking gaps between your brow hairs where the skin underneath can be seen. The key to achieving the perfect brows would be to hide those empty areas without going too overboard.
Brow powders like the Lily Lolo Eyebrow Duo are meant to deposit color that’s close to your natural hair into the empty areas of your brows. The powder on the left pan comes in two different shades of brown that cater to most Asian hair colors. This product also gets extra bonus points for including brow wax on the right pan which helps in keeping brow hair in place.
Brow mascaras are also a great alternative if you want to fill in the sparse areas of your brows. They work similarly to regular mascaras which provide volume and length to the lashes. A great example of a brow mascara is the Full Brow 3-In-1 Brow Fibre since it comes with a super slim brush for precise application to your brows. This would make your brow hair appear thicker to cover up the sparse areas.
Shaping Sparse Brow End
While brow mascaras and powders are great for addressing gaps within your brow hairs, filling in the ends of your brows require products that offer more control and precision. These are two things that you won’t be able to achieve with powders and mascaras.
Pencils are the best way to go for filling out sparse ends of your brows since they offer more precision. Skip the triangular pencil tip and go for a pencil with an ultra-fine round tip like the K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting 3-Way Eyebrow Liner. Simply use the tip to draw fine hair-like strokes on the head and tail of your brows and you’re good to go. The best thing about this product is that it’s both smudge-proof and waterproof to make sure that your brows will remain filled in and in shape even after a sweaty work-out session.
In case you’re unable to find the perfect shade match from K-Palette’s selection, you may also want to check out the Koh Gen Do Eyebrow Pencil which offers variants in cooler tones. Similar to the K-Palette Eyebrow Liner, it’s also smudge-proof and waterproof.
Now that you know which products are best for filling in your brows, you’re one step closer to achieving the perfect pair of brows.
