The look of bold, defined brows is growing in popularity. Whether you’re into a slick architectural style, a faux, fluffy brow or a fuller ombre effect, filling in your eyebrows with a pomade is one of the easiest ways to achieve your desired look. It’s also a great choice for people who struggle with drawing in thin, hair-like strokes with a pencil or powder.
While it’s easy to overdo brow makeup (especially when using powder or pencil), the right product can give you a natural-looking, volumized brow that looks totally believable. And while filling in your brows with a pomade can be a bit intimidating for beginners, it’s actually much easier to do than you think.
First, you need to make sure your brows are clean and well-shaped before starting to apply makeup to them. It’s also important to pluck any excess hairs to ensure that they’re shaped and fairly even. Next, you’ll need to find a shade that perfectly matches your natural color. If you’re unsure, try testing out different shades on your skin to see which one best fits your complexion. Alternatively, you can get your brows shade-matched by a beauty therapist or makeup artist.
If you’re new to brow pomade, start with a tinted version, which will help to create the appearance of fullness and density in your brows without making them appear overdone. “A tinted eyebrow pomade is a fantastic option for beginners because it’s easy to use and doesn’t require you to be as precise as a pencil or powder,” says Hurkman.
Once you’ve mastered the art of applying an eyebrow pomade, you can move on to something with more pigmentation. The key is to apply it sparingly so that your brows look natural, not painted on. “A good rule of thumb is to use a light hand,” Healy adds. “Spread the pomade over your brows in short, upward strokes for a more natural-looking finish.”
