How to define your brows

The statement brow is here so stay, so be bold and beautiful with our simple how-to for filling out those brows and adding definition. Once you've got the brow basics mastered, you can dial up the drama to suit your style.

1. Pluck any stray hairs and comb through

To neaten and define your brow shape, follow the natural shape of your brow and pluck any stray hairs. Comb through with a brow brush to tame fly aways and prepare your brows for step two.

2. Fill out your brows with brow powder

Apply gentle flicks with an angled eyebrow brush to build up your desired thickness. Apply sparingly for natural-looking definition and layer more for a statement look - it's up to you. Applying in small flicks should mimic your natural eyebrow hairs for a more natural finish.

3. Add definition above and below your brow with a pencil and blend.

For neat, crisp lines, add definition to the edges of your brow with a more precise pencil. Start at the base of your eyebrow and carefully draw a frame around the shape you have created and blend with a clean eyebrow brush to soften the finish slightly.

4. Create a sharp line with a cotton bud and concealer

Using concealer to clean up around the edges of your eyebrow helps to highlight and create the perfect finish. Crisp lines will give your eyebrows that salon-professional look.

6. Finish by highlighting the brow bone

Using a fluffy brush, apply a highlighter to your brow bone, just underneath your brow. This helps to accent your look and keeps you looking bright-eyed.
