Tutorial: How To Get The Most Natural (But Groomed) Eyebrows Ever

I wanna share a quick, updated brow routine using my recently mentioned favourite, Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner. In this tutorial I am using it in shade Universal Medium, and you’re also going to need a clean mascara wand or spoolie. I’ve been seeing a lot of outlined brows on Instagram, and while it probably looks okay from far away, it’s doesn’t usually look natural when you’re seeing people face-to-face IRL. So here’s an option if you want to fill in your brows, but it doesn’t look like you really filled them in. A your-brows-but-better tutorial, if you will.

How To Get Naturally Groomed Eyebrows Glitter Geek Tutorial

  1. Start with your naked brows. Breathe. It’s okay, you can do this!
  2. With the pencil, start at the highest point of the arch along the top of your brow and fill in the sparse areas.
  3. The hairs at the inner corner of my brows grow in a jagged line, so I draw a guide in a straight line to mimic the shape I like. I knowwww what you’re thinking: “hell naw, I’ve seen this kind of tutorial before.” Trust, it’s gonna get softer than this, I promise.
  4. Fill in the rest of the sparse areas of your brows. Don’t fill in the entire brow for this. Just covering the bald spots will do the trick for a natural brow look.
  5. With the comb end of the pencil, brush through the head of brows upwards to break up the hard line.
  6. Repeat step 5 along the top of the arch.
  7. Take a clean spoolie, and brush through the inner third of the brows horizontally to soften the makeup further.
  8. Ta-da! You are done.

Easy, right? How do you fill in your brows? If you’re struggling to fill in your brows without looking like Sandy Cohen (I can’t even type that without laughing out loud!), hope this tutorial is helpful. Try it out sometime. 🙂

  • Hey Arianne, thanks for the tutorial! I love how natural the result is. I am not a big fan of very outlined brows, but I do have to fill a lot of mine in because they’re SO. SUPER. SPARSE.

    • Hi Sunny! 🙂 You’re welcome. Do you use different products/shades to fill them in? That’s what I tend to do when I’m working on clients with very sparse brows to get really natural results.

      • I use Hourglass Soft Brunette and then brush my brows out. The shade is as close to what I THINK would be my brow color if I actually had any LOL

  • Your timing was so perfect on this, Arianne! I was thinking, “I need a brow tutorial.” and BOOM – you posted one! I love the way yours turn out – they look natural but nice and tidy. I will try your method tomorrow morning! Thanks, girl!

    • Thanks Kristen! I’d love to hear about your results if you do try it. 🙂

  • Ugh, Arianne. You have the prettiest brows! I love that they’re always big without being “Instagram brows”. <3

    • Thanks Rae! That means so much. 🙂

  • Hi Arianne! I’m definitely obsessed about having nice looking eye brows, but I can only dream about brows like yours. Mine are naturally blond and sparse, so I have to draw them in fresh every morning. Tarte emphasEYES mousse is my current favorite. Pencils and powders are a lost cause to me, they simply don’t work as well as the mousse.
    I love your blog, btw!

    • Hi Tanya! Thanks for stopping by! I’ve heard about that mousse before and I totally want to try it. Have you tried Hourglass pencil? I haven’t tried it yet but a lot of bloggers seem to love that one. 🙂

      • Hourglass pencil? No, I never tried it. I’ll definitely check it out, though. Sometimes I have a some kind of a mental block to even look at the brow pencils because in my head I generalize them all to be useless to me. Thanks for the tip!
