Bringing Back Bold Eyebrows—All You Need to Know
Step away from those tweezers, and cancel that threading appointment: bold eyebrows are the new thing!
Your eyebrows can make or break your makeup look. They frame your face and define your features, so an expertly filled-in pair can bring any makeup look to life. And as a result of the no-makeup makeup trend and less-is-more aesthetic, the bold brows trend is becoming the focal point of any makeup look.
Not everyone is blessed with thick eyebrows. However, we do have the power of makeup, which can help us create fuller brows that look natural. If you're still trying to find a way to boost your arches, don't worry. We are here to give you all the best tips, tricks, and tools to make it easy for you to get into the bold eyebrows trend.
How to Create Thick Eyebrows Using Makeup
#1 Trim & Shape ‘em Brows
Ensure that your eyebrows are properly trimmed for this step. Brush your eyebrows straight up using a spoolie brush and trim any longer pieces carefully. Use tweezers to remove any baby hair that is obviously out of place. Avoid tweezing your natural brow shape to prevent it from getting thinner!
You can choose to avoid this hassle by getting a professional beauty artist to trim and shape your eyebrows.
#2 Start With the Brush
This is one of the easiest and most overlooked ways to groom your eyebrows. By brushing your brows upward, you will reveal their ideal shape and your face will instantly look more lifted.
You can use brow gel, wax, clear mascara, or even a little hairspray on a spoolie to hold your brows in place. If you do not have a spoolie, you can make a perfect eyebrow brush from an old mascara wand.
#3 Fill Them In
You can add depth and opacity to your eyebrows using a variety of products. With so many options available—from powders to brow gels to pencils—there's a good chance you feel overwhelmed.
So, what is the best product for creating thick eyebrows? It depends on your natural brows. Here’s how you can fake thick eyebrows and make the most of what you have.
- If you have patchy eyebrows
Fill in the patchy spots with an eyebrow gel, then outline your brows and define your arch with an angled brush. To create a thick, natural-looking brow, brush through your eyebrows with your spoolie after you have filled and shaped them.
- If you have medium-fullness eyebrows
Using an eyebrow pencil, lightly outline your natural brows to give them a thicker appearance. Make light strokes starting at the front of your brow to fill the shape you have created.
Next, fill in any spaces using a brow gel. Lastly, set the look by brushing the eyebrows.
For any kind of eyebrows, especially thin or medium eyebrows, you can also use the following trick to get thicker brows:
- If you have barely-there eyebrows
A light touch and patience are the keys to getting this look. When it comes to eyebrow makeup, it is easy to go overboard, which can result in the appearance of drawn-on eyebrows.
Draw your desired outline using light, precise strokes while staying close to the natural shape of your eyebrow. Within your outline, create soft, curved lines in the direction of your hair using the same light, flowing strokes.
Pro Tip: Using an eyebrow pencil with a thin tip makes it easy to draw tiny eyebrow hairs so you can fake a bold brows basic look.
- If you have naturally thick eyebrows
Are your eyebrows naturally thick? You may wonder how to fill in your brows without overdoing it. Ultimately, even a little product will do wonders for your brows.
Fill in sparse areas of your eyebrows to achieve the thick brow look. Lightly brush your hair with a thin-tipped pencil using feathered strokes.
Do this to create a natural-looking brow, keeping in mind less is more when it comes to creating a full brow! To help tame stubborn brow hairs, use some eyebrow wax.
#4 Final Touch
Draw a perimeter around the brows using a fluffy brush and some finishing powder. Your brows will look sharper with a clean edge.
Voila! You have it. A look that perfectly encompasses the bold brows ideas in 2022—with just an eyebrow kit.
How to Thicken Up Your Brows Without Makeup
You can over-tame your eyebrows in many ways, including tweezing, trimming, threading, and waxing. However, if you want thicker eyebrows, you must let them grow.
The more prominent the brows, the better, and natural brows are back in style. Simply pluck off any stray hairs using tweezers and you are good to go.
Apply a Bit of Castor Oil
Castor oil is a multi-purpose beauty ingredient that can also be used to thicken eyebrows. Several antioxidants, fatty acids omega-6, omega-9, and vitamin E are present in it, all of which boost hair growth and nourish the skin.
Simply dab a small amount of castor oil over your eyebrows with a Q-tip or spoolie brush to promote thick eyebrows. Brush the castor oil upward, mimicking the growth of your eyebrow's hair, until it has been completely absorbed by your brow.
Experiment With Other Home Remedies
Several other familiar kitchen staples may help thicken your brows, like coconut oil, olive oil, and avocado oil. Similar to castor oil, all of these oils contain fatty acids and vitamin E, both of which have been shown to encourage hair growth.
Using a cotton swab, apply these natural remedies to your eyebrows and massage them for a couple of minutes, but avoid applying them to the rest of your face since some of these ingredients may clog your pores.
The Bottom Line
Even though makeup is the fastest way to make your eyebrows look bold, it is always nice to give a little extra attention to them and nurture them with products and oils.
Follow the steps to bold brow given above and achieve the perfect bold brow you’ve seen on your favorite celebrities.
