Get your fill
* We ‘re not all blessed with fabulously full brows, and you’ll now be able to spot any sparse areas you may have.
Use the powder in your brow palette to fill those in small strokes. Focus on the middle arch of your brow and work outwards in both directions.
* If you lack length at either end, shade further, but be sure that you don’t go too far. Lay your spoolie brush against your face from beside your nose to the inside corner of your eye, then tilt to the outside. Mark those points with your eyeliner, and be sure that you don’t stray over them.
* 0nee you’ve filled them in with the colour closest to your natural hair colour, sweep a tinted brow gel a shade lighter than your powder through the hairs to fix and soften your look. Essential brow palette buys:
