If You're Lacking Brow Hair
Having thin brows doesn’t have to cause you bother, here’s how to fake fullness
Full eyebrows are on trend right now, but many of us have naturally thin brows with very fine hair. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with having eyebrows on the slimmer side—in fact, subtle brows can make it easier to experiment with multiple beauty looks. But if you do want eyebrows that are more thick and fluffy, it’s easy to fake it. We’ve rounded up our favourite products that can make thin brows appear big and bushy in next to no time.
Applying gels and creams to very thin eyebrows can seem daunting, but if you want an ultra-natural eyebrow look that just gives the illusion of being fuller, try West Barn Co’s Soapbrows. Mist the product so it’s slightly damp and then take a spoolie and brush the pomade formula through your brows. It instantly clings to your hairs, thickening them up, and we love it because it’s pretty foolproof. No steady hand needed.
Easy-to-blend eyebrow pencils
If you’re scared of drawing on eyebrows that seem overdone, try the Code8 Arch Realist Brow Defining Pencil. Its Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E-enriched formula melts into the skin for a natural look that’s easy to blend, so you won’t end up with harsh lines or too much pigment on your brows. With three shades to choose from, you can mix and match the products to find the ultimate dupe for your natural brow colour. Use the nib of the pencil to create small brush-like strokes and replicate real hair strands, and if you mess up, just take the spoolie side of the pencil and buff and blend out the pigment. It’s practically foolproof, but if you need a little more guidance book in for a free consultation with one of our makeup artists. They'll help you find the perfect shade and give you extra support and tips on how to get a natural-looking brow.
Hair growth serums and oils
You should never alter your appearance if you don’t want to, but if your brows are getting you down, you could try a growth serum. RapidBrow’s Eyebrow Enhancing Serum uses a unique blend of fortifying proteins, stimulating peptides and nourishing ingredients to transform uneven, sparse brows in a matter of weeks. You simply brush it on to your eyebrow hairs twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Alternatively, you try a natural remedy like Castor Oil. It's made up largely of ricinoleic acid, which is a chemical compound that is said to reduce hair loss and many swear by applying it morning and night for healthier, bushier eyebrows.
We hope you've found these eyebrow hacks helpful, and now know all the options available if you're looking for fuller, thicker brows.
