When I was a teenager in the 90’s, I was really into the whole thin eyebrow look. I would overpluck or shave them off and draw them in with pronounced curved arches. Back then, that was totally in style! Now, not so much. Today’s brows are bold and full with minimal tweezing going on.
After letting my brows grow back in, I have areas that are patchy and will just not grow. Note to self: I will never shave my brows again! To fill in those areas, I have tried pencils, but they’re usually too thick, powders look unnatural to me, and gels don’t fill them in at all.
Enter Chella’s Eyebrow Cream. This product was exactly what I was looking for! The eyebrow cream’s pomade like texture combined with their super-thin angled brush took my brows to natural fullness. Stay tuned for a video posting on my Instagram stories to see my happy eyebrows! And if you’re looking to recover your brows, check out my Step by Step Guide to Perfect Brows below!
Follow this simple and easy no-stencil diagram to direct and guide you to perfectly natural-looking eyebrows.
Align an eyebrow pencil alongside the side of the nose to the beginning of the eyebrow (A). Here is where you’ll mark the starting point of your brow. Next, with the pencil still against your nose, tilt it towards the iris of the eye (B) and mark the high point arch of your brow here. Find the end point of your brow by angling the pencil from the outside of your nose and tilting it to the outer corner of the eye (C).
To see the shape of your brows, brush them up. This will show if you’ll need to trim, tweeze, and where to fill them in.
After brushing your eyebrows up, there are usually a few hairs that are a bit too long. Take your eyebrow scissors and trim those little hairs away.
Use tweezers to remove unwanted stray hairs below your brow shape. Grip individual hairs and gently pull out in the direction of growth. Remember not to overpluck here!
To fill in brows, take the angled brush and lightly dip it into the eyebrow cream. Draw hair-like strokes to shape brows and fill in patchy areas. I tend always to use a taupe color, which is in-between gray and brown because it blends right into brows. Try to stay away from using brow products with red undertones as they tend to make them look unnatural.
Apply a highlighter pencil to your brow bone and blend in with your finger to brighten and lift your eye area. This will keep the focus on your perfectly shaped brows.
You can get all of the tools (minus the cream and highlighter) in this cute little case or buy what you need separately. Don’t forget to watch my Instagram stories where I’ll be demonstrating my Step by Step Guide to Perfect Brows!
