Eyebrow Transformation

I get a lot of people sending me questions via Tumblr on what I use to fill in my brows, so I thought I may as well put together a post about them, and what I use to do them.

I naturally have very fair brows that almost look as if they aren't even there from a distance, and occasionally I go through phases of dying them a darker blonde so they don't require as much filling in or won't look as 'non-existent' on no makeup days, but I haven't dyed them in quite a while now.

As everybody who loves makeup knows, your eyebrows are the all-important frame to your face and how you shape and colour your brows can completely alter and make a huge difference to how you look.

I personally prefer my brows to be a fair bit darker than my hair colour, and unlike my natural brows, quite defined. To keep a little bit of natural colour and texture in there, I prefer using clear brow gels or none at all instead of tinted ones.

My brows before and after filling them in

  • Urban Decay Brow Box in 'Ginger Snap' 
  • MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer in 'NC20'
  • MAC 208 brush to fill in brows 
  • Urban Decay 'Naked 2' small flat brush, for use with concealer to clean up and define if needed


  1. love it! a step by step would have been even more awesome though :P

    1. Thank you! I considered a step by step but I realised my routine is exactly the same as the other thousands of eyebrow tutorials out there :)
