Ok so I won't lie, my eyebrows haven't always looked as full as they do now - they've definitely seen some highs and a fair few lows too but I finally feel like they're looking alright now! I was one of those people who majorly over plucked my brows and when I look back at some of the pictures I do wonder why my friends and family ever let me go out looking like that! Today I'm going to share with you my current eyebrow routine and tell you about my tips and tricks for keeping my brows looking full and tamed! My natural brows aren't actually that bad now, they're a bit sparse at the front and could do with having a strong shape to them so in this post I'm going to show you how I fill them in to make them more defined!!

Every 4 weeks or so I tend to pluck my brows, I do them myself because I'm too scared to let anyone else near them (although I'm thinking about trying out the threading at superdrug soon as I have had it done their before). In the interim I just simply conceal the unwanted hairs.

In order to ensure my brows start and end in the correct place, I roughly measure using the outside of my eyebrow brush. To find the start I measure from the outside of the nose vertically upwards to past the inner corner of the eye. To find the arch I measure from the outside of the nose up diagonally through the centre of my iris and then to measure the end I measure from the outside of the nose diagonally past the outer corner of the eye. If you're a beginner then I would suggest marking the start, end and arch points with your concealer so you can see it while you outline the shape - this used to help me out a lot, but now I know where they are!!

To fill in the shape of my brows I use the Make Up Revolution Brow Pomade. It's basically like a very affordable version of the Anastasia DipBrow (which I'm desperate to try!) I find this works really well to define the shape of my brows. I use a small eye brush and use small brush strokes to get a natural look. I always use a spooley to brush through the brows gently to remove any unwanted product and then conceal the areas surrounding the brows.

I then always go in with a brown eye shadow just to make the brows look more natural and not harsh (I know I'm from Liverpool but I don't want squared off scouse brows in all honesty!)

It's really simple and easy to do and takes no time at all. For a night out I sometimes go in with a darker shadow to make them more defined but on a day-to-day basis I like to keep them looking as natural as possible.

Let me know if you try out this technique! My brows are NOT perfect by any means, but remember they're sisters not twins!
