Written by Urvi DalalJun 04, 2021

Do you feel like your makeup is incomplete until and unless you don’t fill in your brows? ‘Cause same. Well-defined brows frame your entire face and also make peepers pop.

But while perfectly defined brows can take your overall look several notches higher, doing a poor job at filling them can totally ruin your look. So you have to be precise and perfect when filling in your brows. Don’t know how to do that? We’ve got you covered. We will tell you how to fill in your brows as the pros do in a simple, easy-to-follow step-by-step guide. Plus, we’ve also included some awesome sauce tips to help you nail this even if you are an absolute beginner…

How to fill in your brows like a pro

Step 01: Start with brushing your brows in an upwards direction with a spoolie. This will help you determine where your brows are uneven.

Step 02: Next, using an eyebrow pencil, fill in the sparse areas on your brows. Make sure to use quick short strokes and a very light hand for best results. We love using the Lakmé Absolute 3D Eye Brow Definer for this. Thanks to the creamy and pigmented formula, this eyebrow pencil delivers a natural finish with impressive definition. Additionally, since this pencil comes with a spoolie attached, it offers great ease of use too.

Step 03: Now, take some brow powder on an angled brush and define your brows. But if you don’t have brow powder, don’t worry; you can always use a matte brown or grey eyeshadow from the Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Midnight Magic.

Pro tip: Avoid going overboard with both filling in the front and shaping the tail end. Additionally, make sure to keep the arch looking like a smooth curve for a natural finish.

Step 04: Using the spoolie brush, gently brush through your brows again to blend the excess pigment and soften harsh edges, if any. 

Step 05: To keep your brows from budging, simply apply some brow gel or use the soap brow hack.

Aaaand your done! Go ahead and flaunt those on-fleek eyebrows, girl!
