How to Get Thicker Eyebrows With Makeup in 3 Simple Steps

Everyone will think you’re blessed with naturally full arches.
June 23, 2023

Legend has it that no two eyebrows look exactly alike, and a large part of that is because this distinctive facial feature looks different on everyone. Some are blessed with naturally full, bushy brows, just like some are predisposed to sparse, thin arches. Lately, the ‘90s skinny brow and bleached brows have had a major moment in fashion and on social media, but just like a classic swipe of red lipstick, thick brows will continue to be a go-to for many.

Eyebrow makeup is a wonderful thing because it can take you from thin, sparse brows to fluffy, bushy arches in minutes when you’re equipped with the right products. Ahead, learn how to fake thicker eyebrows with your makeup, and all the products you’ll need to achieve it.

Is it Possible to Get Thicker Eyebrows?

There are a few different routes you can take to achieve thicker brows. For starters, put down the tweezers, that is only going to hinder your journey to full arches. Instead, let your brows grow out into their natural shape and save the tweezers for stray hairs or any hairs that pop up between your brows. 

Makeup is a great way to hack thicker eyebrows. Look for brow pencils to add strokes of hair and volumizing brow mascaras that can thicken each individual strand for an overall fuller look. Another way is to incorporate a brow growth serum into your daily routine — this is a great way to stimulate new hair growth in sparse areas of your brows. 

How to Get Thicker Brows With Makeup 

Here’s how to achieve natural-looking, full brows with makeup products in three simple steps. 

Step 1. Determine Your Brow Shape 

Just like you take the time to figure out what color foundation best suits your skin tone, the same holds true when it comes to figuring out your ideal brow shape. The shape of your face plays a major role in what eyebrow shape you should have. Eyebrows accentuate your facial structure and frame that smoky eye or winged eyeliner you love so fondly, so it’s important to start by figuring out the perfect shape for you.

If you have a square face, the best eyebrow shape for you is gently curved arches. The reason why this shape is ideal for you is because it’s most flattering on angular face structures. A gentle curved brow can soften your facial features. 

If you have a round face, the best eyebrow shape for you is angular aches. Just as curved brows offer the perfect contrast to a square face, angular brows do the same for round faces. Get the illusion of a more defined bone structure with a strictly styled arch. 

If you have a heart-shaped face, keep your brows well-groomed and avoid letting them grow unruly. Heart-shaped faces are characterized by a wider forehead and a narrower jaw. Since your forehead is a bit wider than the rest of your face, the last thing you want is ultra-bushy brows because it will call more attention to your forehead. Go to your local salon or pick up a pair of tweezers to create a well-groomed (but not too thin) arch. Only remove hair from the underside of your brow to keep the top of your arch in perfect condition.

If you have a long face, go for slightly extended brows. This style will help create a new focal point when your face shape feels elongated. Instead of focusing on the vertical span of your features, eyes will be drawn to your horizontal characteristics when you style your brows past the ends of your eyes. 

Step 2. Shape and Fill In Your Brows With a Pencil 

Once you’ve identified the best brow shape for your face shape and your natural brows, use the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Mechanical Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil to reshape and fill in your brows in the areas where you need it most like sparse areas or near the tail. After you’ve filled in your brows, use the spoolie on the other end of the pencil to brush them out so the filled-in areas look seamless with the rest of your arches.

Step 3. Coat Your Brows With Brow Mascara

After you’ve perfected your shape and have taken care of any sparse areas, next you’re going to fill your brows with a tinted brow mascara to add thickness and density throughout. We like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Volumizing 24H Wear Brow Mascara, a thickening brow mascara that gives thin brows a plush finish and lasts for up to 24 hours. Just like the mascara you apply to your lashes, the wand and brush applicator coats your brow hairs with an even layer of color that resists smudging and transferring.

This step is optional but it can provide extra definition and shaping to your brows. Use a full-coverage concealer like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer up to 24H Full Coverage and an angled brush to carve out the shape of your brows. Then, take a makeup sponge and blend out the concealer in the area surrounding your brows for perfectly sculpted arches.
