Most women get their eyebrows waxed, plucked, threaded, or shaped. An extra way to add a little shape to your face is to fill in your brows with a brow powder. This is especially important if your brows are sparse or fair.
Find a brow powder that matches the color of your hair. Or, if you are a very light blonde, go a couple of shades deeper for added definition. Redheads sometimes have a hard time finding a reddish-brown brow powder, but there is a wider selection of colors available in eye shadows that can double as a brow powder. Just make sure the eyeshadow is a matte shade and doesn't have any shimmer to it.
Keep a brow brush in your makeup bag. The perfect brush tool has angled, stiff bristles that are short and will allow you to brush the powder right into your brows. When you add the step of filling your brows with powder to your makeup routine, you'll be amazed at how extra polished and professional your makeup will look.
