There's always a little time to upgrade your eyebrows.

Once I started filling in my brows a couple of years ago, I knew there was no turning back. I’ve experimented with a few different products and brow looks since then, and now I have three techniques that are my go-to depending on how much time I have and how lazy I’m feeling that particular day.

Here's what I'm working with:

When I’m short on time…

Powder is the easiest and quickest way for me to fill in the brows, and it doesn’t take a lot of effort. 

I start with a little bit of powder on the end of a flat definer brush (you can use an angled brush as well), and I lightly sweep the powder through the tail of my brow.

Color is all personal preference; I have both blond and my natural dark brunette in my hair currently so I like a more chocolaty/warm brown shade.

Next, I work my way towards the front of my brow, sweeping towards the back as I go and using less and less pressure the closer I get to the front. 

I then take a spoolie and brush through my brows to diffuse the look a little bit.

I typically use this method when I’m in a rush or just want a quick, bold brow. The only downside of it to me is that I feel like it’s a less natural look than some other options.

This look is definitely on the bold side, but it works well for me because of my thick glasses frames.

When I have a little bit more time…

Pencil is probably my favorite brow product because I feel like I have more control over how natural it looks and how bold I can make it. 

The hairs at the bottom of my brow grow kind of unevenly, so I start by tracing the underside of my brow with the pencil.

I bring the pencil a little further down on this side so it will appear more even with the other eyebrow.

Next, I use short strokes to fill out any sparse areas in my brows and to make them match up a little more evenly.  

I use the Anastasia Beverly Hill Brow Wiz pencil in Chocolate.

Finally, I run a spoolie through them to blend every thing out; brushing up and towards the tail once again.

I like brushing my hairs a little upward because I think it looks more natural that way.

I like using this method to create a bold brow that's not too blocky.

When I’m taking my sweet, sweet time…

When I’m really getting gussied up, I like to take some extra time to fill in my brows a little more carefully. 

For this, I repeat everything I did with the pencil before and then add brow pomade like Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pomade. I take the pomade on a small angled brush and trace the top of my brow.

I don't press down too heavily as I'm tracing; I'm just trying to create a more uniform appearance.

Next, I run the pomade through the rest of the brow lightly and blend out with a spoolie.

This is definitely a stronger look, and I like how it stands out.

There are so many ways to fill in brows—what's your favorite? Are you into a bolder brow or do you prefer a softer look?
