1. Eyebrow Pencil

A brow pencil is used to outline and define the eyebrows. If you want a natural look, you can also use them to fill in your eyebrows. If your brows are asymmetrical or have gaps, then a good waterproof eyebrow pencil is the way to go.

2. Eyebrow Powder

For a softer finish and easy application, an eyebrow powder is the perfect product. Eyebrow powders also come in various shades so you can easily find one that seamlessly matches your base.

3. Spoolie Brush

Similar to a mascara brush, a spoolie brush is used to comb your eyebrows before or after you start filling them. While you don’t necessarily need a spoolie to fill in your eyebrows, it can help make the process easier by revealing gaps and giving a natural finish. Generally, eyebrow pencils come with a brush too.

4. Eyebrow Gel, Pomade, Or Wax

Depending on the kind of look you want, you can choose to go for an eyebrow gel, pomade, or wax. Eyebrow wax is great for styling and can offer a stronger hold on your eyebrows whereas eyebrow pomades are meant for a bolder, more defined look. Pomades are also more pigmented and great for sparse eyebrows. Eyebrow gels are perfect for people who already have thick eyebrows and just need to set them in place.

How To Fill In Your Eyebrows

Step 1: Comb Your Brows

Take a spoolie brush and comb your eyebrow in their natural direction. This will give them shape and help you identify how much work needs to be done.

Step 2: Identify The Arch And End

Before applying your eyebrow makeup, you need to identify the arch and the end of your eyebrows. Place your eyebrow eyeliner next to your nose and angle it in a way that it extends over your eyes, to your eyebrows. The base should be placed on the outer edge of your nose while the front end is extending over your eyes, passing through the pupil, and touching your eyebrow. This particular point is your arch. To find the end, further angle the eyeliner in a way that the front end is towards the edge of your eye, while the base is still on the outer edge of your nose. Now, lightly mark both these positions as this technique will help you trace your eyebrows.

Step 3: Outline Your Brows

Take the Lakme Black EyeBrow Pencil and use the arch and end points to outline your eyebrows. The best eyebrow pencil is one that delivers results with utmost precision, and comfort. You want to make sure you execute this very gently. In case of any stray hair, use the Majestique Tweezer For Eyebrows, And Hair Remover Tool to pluck them out.

Step 4: Fill In The Eyebrows

Pick a suitable colour from the eyebrow palette and fill in your eyebrows with the PAC Eyebrow Brush - 222. You can also use other products like an eyebrow pencil or pomade. The benefit of using an eyebrow pencil is that it offers precision and ease.

Step 5: Blend The Makeup

Take a spoolie to comb through and blend the makeup. You can also use an eyebrow brush. This will get rid of clumps by spreading it out and blending it.
