Step-by-step guide to get the look
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to get the brushed brows look at home.
Step 1: Brush those eyebrow hair
With the help of a brow makeup brush - spoolie, start brushing your eyebrow hair upwards. Doing this will help you see all the places you need to fill in to make scanty brows look fuller. If you have excess brow hair, you can also use brow shaping scissors & brush to shape them.
The Lakmé Absolute 3D Eye Brow Definer comes with a built-in spoolie that makes the application process super easy and effective. It gets your arches in place, grooms stray strands and helps define the shape of your brows. The pencil can be sharpened to make sure you get precise and defined strokes that almost mimic the natural strands. This eyebrow pencil gives you fuller looking brows with minimal effort. It has an efficient formula with a creamy and smooth finish that blends like a dream.
Step 2: Trace them down
Though this trend is all about embracing the natural look, it does not mean that you don’t take any effort to make your brows look neat. Using the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown, trace along the underside of your arches. This brow brush pencil gives you naturally filled brows with soft, long-lasting water and a smudge-proof finish. It comes with a unique precision tip designed to give you evenly filled, defined brows.
Step 3: Fill them in
Next, fill in the sparse areas with a brow filler brush using gentle strokes, so the brushed-up end looks naturally grown and not drawn on.
Step 4: Blend it all in
Follow it by brushing your brows once again for the product to slightly blend in, thereby creating the perfect natural look. You can use a spoolie to blend it all out.
Step 5: Add that definition
To add definition under your brows, take the help of a brow highlighter. This step is sure to add the much-needed glamour to your brows. You can use this Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter – Ivory to highlight your browbones using a brow bone highlighter brush. Its liquid texture not only makes it easier to blend but also stays on for longer compared to the classic powder highlighters.
And, ta-da! All-new brows in only 5 steps!
Now that you know how to achieve the brushed brows look, go all out and create them at the comfort of your home!
FAQs about the Brushed Brow trend 2022
Will brushed up brows suit me?
It's ideal for brows of all shapes and sizes as the brushed-up brow trend works on a variety of brow shapes and sizes. It's easy to tame bushy brows – brush them up to set them. However, this look isn't just for those who have naturally thick eyebrows. For those with slimmer or sparser eyebrows that want to look fuller, it is also a good trick. To create hair-like strokes, use a pencil to fill in any gaps.
Can you increase the thickness of your eyebrows?
Yes, of course! Use castor oil or brow serums. Peptides and conditioning ingredients are used in eyebrow growth serums for strengthening and preventing hair breakage.
It is recommended to apply a serum to your brow hair daily in order to encourage re-growth and condition it.
