Now that you are getting older, you may have thinning brows and don’t know how to get that perfect brow. Here are some things you can do:

You can go to an eyebrow specialist to reshape your eyebrows the way that you want them. Stay away from too much tweezing above your eyebrows. Pluck out only the hairs that stray below the eyebrows. This will assist in maintaining the shape.

Use a tweezer that has a slanted tip. It grasps tiny hairs better. Use a lightly shaded pencil or powder to fill in your brows. Taupe will work with almost any shade. However, if you have dark hair, you should use a pewter pencil. Unless you have dark hair or skin, don’t use a black pencil.

To train an unruly brow, use brow gel. This will make sure that the application is smooth and not overly done. Before you apply the gel, scrape the brush against the tube opening of the gel.

If you have white hairs, a pencil or powder will help to cover it. If you pluck, this will cause a thinning brow.

Don’t use a creamy powder because the color is going to smudge. Use shades that are lighter than the color of your hair unless your hair is white or blonde where you will use a dark pencil instead.

Application process

Use a wiry brush to keep the hairs down. Trace the hair with the pencil softly across the upper edges, but don’t press too hard on it.

Use light pencil strokes to fill in the inside corners and ends, but only after applying foundation and prior to putting on your eye makeup. Run the wiry brush over the whole length of the brow. This will help to blend and soften the color. Once you have a well-defined brow, you may not need an eye liner or even mascara.


What if your eyebrow is greying?

If you have brows that are getting white, what can you do? You don’t want to irritate your eyes, but if you are careful, this can be done at home. The dye should be applied to a small area of your inner arm to test that there will be no rash to the skin.

This is when you can go ahead and apply dye to your brow. However, if you only see a few random hairs going white, stay away from dyeing. Instead, you should use a brow brush or powder to fill in the brows using light strokes to conceal the white hairs.
