Trust us when we say that how you shape your eyebrows can bring about a world of a difference to your look. Some people are blessed with full, beautiful eyebrows. The rest of us have to work a little harder to make such brows a reality. However, for those of us with thin, sparse brows, that goal seemed almost impossible. How are you supposed to pull off #onfleek brows when yours are non-existent? Thankfully, there are several easy ways to achieve fuller-looking brows without looking like you've attached caterpillars to your face. If your brows are sparse, don't fret! We are letting on our secrets for properly shaping (and faking) the perfect eyebrows.

This Is How You Can Fill In Your Sparse And Thin Eyebrows
1. Lift The Hair Up
Use a clean mascara wand or a spoolie brush to comb brow hair up. By lifting the hair, you expose the skin underneath so your pencil has something to adhere to.
2. Draw A Line Along With The Top
Draw a thin straight line starting at your arch, down slightly past your brow. Feel free to exaggerate your arch a bit by drawing the line at a sharper angle. Fill in the front half of your brow by drawing quick, short lines that mimic your brow hairs. Gently draw just past the arch to create a smooth shape.
3. Fill In Extra Gaps
For an all-around thicker, more defined look, do this along the length of your arches. You can also use a waterproof cream-gel formula instead of a pencil or stroke on colour with a built-in paint-tip applicator.
4. Brush Out
Brush brows back into their natural place with the wand or a spoolie. Comb the hairs up and away. This will help blend the pencil with your natural brow as well as align the hairs in the same direction.
5. Highlight And Set
Finish with a swipe of highlighter just below your arch, along your brow bone. Once you've mastered filling in both brows, you'll notice how they subtly frame your face and make your eyes pop. For extra staying power, go over your work with a small amount of brow powder or a clear brow gel.
Pointers To Remember For Doing Thin Eyebrows
Apply a couple of drops of coconut oil or vitamin E oil every night before bed. These oils can help stimulate the growth of your eyebrows.
Find your shade by playing off of your skin's natural undertones, your hair's highlight and lowlight colours.ADVERTISEMENT
For those of us with thin brows, it's important to let them grow out as much as possible before grooming.
