How to fill blonde eyebrows

If you have blonde hair and your brows appear basically non-existent IRL and in photos, use these tips from makeup artist Lauren Cosenza. Her brow-to will show you how to fill in barely-there blonde eyebrows for a pretty, natural look.

How to fill blonde eyebrows

1. Comb through your eyebrows. “Use a spoolie brush to work your eyebrows into a slightly upward direction,” Cosenza says.

2. Determine where your brows should begin. “Holding a slant-tip brush vertically along the side of your nose, line it up with your brow to figure out where you should start filling in your arches,” she says. Erica used MAC Cosmetics 208 brush.

3. Figure out where the tail of your brow should end. “Holding the end of the same brush that you used in step two by the tip of your nose, direct the tip of the brush toward the outer corner of your eye at a 45 degree angle,” Cosenza says. “This is where the tail of the brow should end.”

4. Use an eyebrow pencil to draw the brow shape. Lightly fill in sparse spots of your brow with a blonde pencil, since it’s more subtle than a regular brown pencil. That way you won’t go overboard when you shade it in. Erica used Laura Mercier’s Eye Brow Pencil in Ash Blonde.

5. Apply brow powder to fill in your eyebrow. With the same slant-tip brush you’ve been using and a brow powder that’s one shade lighter than your hairs, comb through your brows using backward and then forward strokes to diffuse the brow powder. This way your arches will look more natural. Erica swiped on Amazing Cosmetics Brow Powder in Blonde.

6. Clean the edges above and below the brow. Using a color correcting cover-up and a concealer brush, diffuse any harsh lines with around the top and bottom of your brow.

Bold, filled-in brows are a serious makeup trend. But if you have blonde hair, you may be hesitant to add eyebrow makeup to your daily routine in fear of your brows looking totally drawn on. But we have good news: being blonde doesn’t mean you have to miss out on adding beautiful, defined brows to your makeup look. Blondes can fill in their brows too! Keep reading to find out how to fill in blonde eyebrows.

HOW TO FILL IN BLONDE BROWS WITH A PENCIL

As a blonde, one option you have when it comes to filling in your brows is to use an eyebrow pencil. Try using the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Shape & Fill Mechanical Pencil in Blonde or Dark Blonde, either shade can be used to precisely outline, easily shade, and evenly fill in blonde eyebrows. Once you have your pencil in hand, follow the steps below to define your eyebrows:

Step #1: Create your shape

Use the pencil to create your desired brow shape. Use light, feathered strokes to outline your brows. Pay special attention to the tails of your eyebrows as they can be a little darker and more defined than other areas.

Step #2: Fill in your brows

Use the same light, feathered strokes to fill in your brows with hair-like lines. Start by adding a few lines to fill in any sparse areas and then gradually add more to achieve your desired look.

Step #3: Blend your eyebrow makeup

Use the spoolie end of your eyebrow pencil to comb through your brows and create a seamless, blended look.

HOW TO FILL IN BLONDE BROWS WITH A BROW GEL

Another option for filling in blonde eyebrows is to use an eyebrow gel. The L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel is a long-wear, waterproof eyebrow gel that thickens brows for a long-lasting look. Grab a tube and follow our easy three-step tutorial to give it a try.

Step #1: Fill in your brows

Use the brow gel’s doe foot applicator to apply a small amount of product throughout your brows, focusing on filling in any sparse areas.

Step #2: Define your brows

Similar to how you’d apply a brow pomade, next you’ll want to use your angled brush (you get one when you purchase Unbelieva-Brow) to outline and define the shape of your eyebrows. Create light, feather-like strokes to avoid heavy, fake-looking brows.

Step #3: Blend away!

Flip your angled brush over and use the spoolie end to brush through your brows and blend the brow gel. A few extra seconds spent brushing your brows can make all the difference in whether or not you’re left with a seamless, natural-looking brow.

Editor’s tip: Whichever way you fill in your brows—pencil or brow gel—use a concealer to define your eyebrow shape by applying it along the edges of your brows with a concealer brush. Make sure to blend out any harsh lines and you’ll be left with eyebrows that are on fleek!

3 OTHER MAKEUP TIPS FOR BLONDES

Now that you know how to fill in blonde eyebrows, you may be wondering what other makeup tips apply to blondes. Below, find three additional makeup tips for blondes.

Tip #1: Use a Brown Mascara

If you have blonde hair, black mascara can appear too harsh against your fair mane. Instead, opt to coat your lashes with a brown mascara like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise™ Washable Mascara in Black Brown.

Tip #2: Think Pink

Blondes look best in light, natural-looking makeup shades. Pinks are the way to go when it comes to choosing a blush and lip color. For blush, try adding a feminine flush to your cheeks with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush in Baby Blossom. Then, paint your lips with an equally flattering pink. If you prefer a matte finish, use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Ultra Matte Highly Pigmented Nude Lipstick in Risque Roses. If you’re a fan of a glossy lip, try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Shining Peach.

Tip #3: Make Taupe Your Signature Color

Whether you know it or not, taupe is every blonde’s best friend. This soft brown hue won’t wash out your light hair color and—even better—it will bring out the multi-dimensional hues in your blonde locks. To incorporate taupe into your makeup look, try using a taupe eye shadow. First, apply a nude shade, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Endless Pearl, on your lid. Then, define your crease with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe.

How to fill blonde eyebrows

Ladies (and in some cases, gents too) can pretty much all agree that “on fleek” eyebrows are an absolute must when it comes to achieving their desired look.

Brows frame the entire face and, just like all features, everybody’s are different. Some are bushy, some are thin, some are arched, some are straight. Some brows are light, others are dark, and the rest are somewhere in between.

As for me, mine are light. Like reaalllly light.

We’re talking pretty much invisible before I fill them in. It took me years (and some seriously tragic phases) before I finally found a brow routine that is easy, affordable, and that gives me the natural look that I like. Hint: It doesn’t involve constant brow tinting or an array of fancy products.

My Eyebrow Trick Revealed

But before I let you in on my secret, I’d like to give you a quick rundown on the journey of my brows, in the hopes to save you from the money and time consuming fails that I experienced.

Me Without Eyebrows:

Why I Ruled Out (Most) Powders and Gels

In addition to having light blonde brows, they are extremely fine, much like the hair on my head. I’ve always envied the girls with thick pony tails and full, beautiful brows that they can just pluck, comb, and go. While I’ll admit that it’s pretty nice not to have coarse hair all over my body (yay for less painful waxes!) it can be a real struggle when it comes to my eyebrows.

Having fine, blonde brows makes it nearly impossible to just use a powder alone. It all depends on personal preference and the look you’re going for, but I for one absolutely can’t stand a powdery looking set of brows on my face! When I went through the powder-only phase, it was completely obvious where I’d dragged the powder brush (no matter how light my strokes were) and they just wound up looking like a fuzzy, drawn on mess.

So, in an effort to achieve a more natural look, I eventually decided to try using gel. To my disappointment, nearly every one that I tried instantly globbed up in the hair and left an unnatural looking stain on my skin.

How to fill blonde eyebrows

For a pretty long time I settled on using the Beverly Hills Brow Gel by Anastasia. I tried the Blonde, Caramel, and Brunette shades, but I was never fully satisfied with the result. While it was less clumpy than other gels I’d tried and had a nice sturdy wand that would probably work great on thicker hair, it still didn’t cling to my hair or give me the fullness and color I was going for.

I finally gave in and resulted to getting them tinted at a salon. I did this every 3 weeks for a couple of years. You can imagine how quickly this become an obnoxious expense for my then-teenage-self, not to mention time consuming. To this day I still can’t justify paying for a tint more than every so often, and will only get them tinted if I have a vacation coming up and don’t want to worry about makeup whatsoever.

The Trick That Finally Worked

Thankfully for me, this story has a happy ending. I was so tired of doing my makeup and walking out the door with mediocre brows and was fed up with spending money and time on various options. Here is the funny thing: what I discovered as my solution had been an item in my makeup bag all along.

Drum roll please…. it was MASCARA. Yes, regular ole’ mascara is and has been my absolute MUST have eyebrow product for the past few years, and I don’t foresee that changing any time soon! I tried a few different brands and discovered that the one that works best for my brows is Greatlash by Maybelline in the color dark brown.

I order it here on Amazon because it’s the convenient thing to do.

How to fill blonde eyebrows

We’re calling all blondes! Whether you’re looking for bolder, more dramatic eyebrows or a natural, feathery look, one thing is for sure: eyebrows can do wonders to enhance your style. Natural blondes (or anyone with light or blonde eyebrows) know the struggle of getting the perfect “Goldilocks” brows—not too dark, not too light, but just right.

Don’t fret—we have brow-raising tips and tricks to raise your blonde brow game to the next level.

Blonde Eyebrows Tip #1: Pick the Right Color

No matter what type of eyebrow makeup you choose to use, one thing is for sure: color. is. everything. For a more natural, everyday look, you’ll want to pick a base color that is not more than one shade darker than your natural hair color. It is also important to take the undertones of your hair into account; does you hair have warm or cool undertones? Pick an eyebrow makeup color that has the same undertones as your natural hair.

  • If you have warm golden blonde hair, look for shades with names like “blonde” or “light.”
  • For cooler ashy blonde hair, look for shades called “blonde” or “taupe.”
  • For darker or dirty blonde hair, look for shades called “taupe” or “light brown.”

Blonde Brows Tip #2: Choose the Right Makeup

There are several different types of eyebrow makeup to choose from, each giving a different effect. The type of eyebrow makeup you choose depends on how you want your eyebrows to look. You can even use different types of makeup at once to create a more complex look.

  • Eyebrow pencils and crayons are great for defining and filling in eyebrows. Use eyebrow pencils to create a refined, clean look.
  • Eyebrow gels and pomadescreate a bolder, filled in brow and hold your brow hairs in place. Use eyebrow gel for trendy bold brows.
  • Eyebrow powderfills in brows while creating a soft, natural look. It works well to fill in sparse spots.
  • Eyebrow mascarais available in both clear and colored variations. It’s good for grooming brows, holding hairs in place, setting other eyebrow makeup, and applying texture and fullness to the brows. If the brow mascara is tinted, it also applies color to the brow.
  • Eyebrow waxis clear and is used to hold hair and makeup in place.

Blonde Brows Tip #3: Know Your Tools

How you apply your eyebrow makeup is half the battle. The other half is what you use to apply your makeup. Every woman should have these tools in her arsenal:

  • A spoolie brushis used to groom the brows and evenly distribute makeup. It is an absolute eyebrow must-have. Some eyebrow pencils come with a spoolie brush already attached to the opposite end of the pencil.
  • An angled eyebrow brush provides an easy, precise way to apply eyebrow powder, gel, and wax.

This brush has a spoolie at one end and an angled brush at the other, so you get both tools in one.

Blonde Eyebrows Tip #4: Mix and Match

To create the most natural look possible, it’s best to use multiple products and colors. We suggest:

  • Using a lighter color to fill in your brows, then using a slightly darker color to add definition.
  • Filling in sparse patches with a powder, then using a pencil to add definition.
  • Using a pencil or powder to define and fill in your brows, then applying eyebrow mascara to hold your brows in place and create fullness.

The ideal combination of products is up to you. The best makeup for blonde eyebrows depends heavily on preference. Try different combinations of products to find out what works best for you. If you’re not sure what products you should get, this eyebrow kit is a great starter pack.

Blonde Eyebrows Tip #5: Perfect Application

Application is very important when it comes to eyebrows. Follow these steps to get the perfect look:

  1. First and foremost, you want to comb your eyebrows. Use your spoolie brush to comb your eyebrows in an upward motion, grooming and separating your eyebrow hairs.
  2. Follow your natural brow and apply your eyebrow makeup in short, flicking motions in the direction of hair growth. This will create the look of real eyebrow hairs. Fill in any sparse spots, define, and shape your brows.
  3. Lightly brush your eyebrows with your spoolie brush to blend the eyebrow makeup and soften any harsh lines.

Blonde Eyebrows Tip #6: Keep it Soft

Bold brows might be in style, but harsh lines and outlines do not give a natural, flattering look. Always make sure to blend your eyebrow makeup with your spoolie brush to create a more flattering look.

Blonde Eyebrows Tip #7: Get the Right Brows for Your Face Shape

Some eyebrow shapes may be more (or less) flattering than others because of your face shape. Read about how to choose eyebrow shapes for your face shape here, then groom your brows accordingly to get the right look for you.

If you need help getting the right shape, try these easy-to-use eyebrow stencils.

Alternatives to Makeup

If you have blonde eyebrows and you’re not a fan of makeup, there are several semi-permanent methods you can use to darken, define, fill-in, and embolden your brows.

  • In the same way that you would dye the hair on your head, eyebrow tinting is dyes your eyebrow hair and follicles. It darkens the brows and gives a more filled-in appearance. Tinting costs $20-$40 and needs to be touched up about once a month.
  • Eyebrow microbladingis a type of semi-permanent tattoo on top of the eyebrows. Small, hair-like lines are tattooed onto the top layer of skin to fill-in and define eyebrows. Micro-bladed brows last about 1-3 years and have an average cost of $1000.
  • When you get eyebrow extensions, individual hairs are glued to existing eyebrow hairs to create a truly full brow. Extensions last about 2-3 weeks and can cost anywhere from $50-$250.

How to fill blonde eyebrows

I don’t really do many ‘how tos’ on this blog and I figure that’s probably why I haven’t yet got round to doing this post, but I thought that – being a blondie myself – I would share my wisdom and my trials and errors with makeup products over the years in order to help out some more fellow blondies!

Now if you, like me, have very fair, faint hair on your body then you know that whilst this comes as an advantage in some areas of the body (i.e the legs), it means that I literally look like I have no eyebrows or eyelashes when I’m makeup free. The hardest bit of this is, of course, finding an eyebrow product that actually looks natural and coats my hairs, without just drawing around them. Which is what mainly happens with pencils, as they don’t actually colour and coat the hair’s themselves, leaving them looking very unnatural. Also, finding the RIGHT colour of product is difficult, as you’ll find that many eyebrow pencils – especially those in the drugstore – are far too red/warm in colour, which is absolutely what you don’t want for any eyebrow.

This is probably the best solution as it means that when using a pencil, you don’t have to worry about there being that contrast between the light and darker colour of the pencil because you’re eyebrows are already darker! It also means that if you truly want a makeup free day, then you don’t have to worry about filling in your eyebrows! Saves hours, and it always makes everything look ten times better.

You will get better and longer lasting result if you go have them done professionally, but don’t rule out home dying either! Be sure to use a dark brown colour over blonde (I promise it won’t look too dark) for a longer-lasting colour and better results.

I promise you, that there is nothing worse than filling in your eyebrows with what is marketed as a ‘blonde’ pencil, to find that the finished result is a pair of red eyebrows! It doesn’t look good and instantly looks fake. It’s quite hard to tell whether a product will come out as red or not by just a thin stripe on the back of your hand, so I’ve written the products that I’ve found to work and the ones that haven’t down below! So check that out, I promise it will save your time, money and your eyebrows.

I would love to get thick, and full eyebrows, but it’s so hard when your eyebrows are blonde as a white sheet as they just end up looking unruly! I never used to use a liquid pen, but actually, I’ve found it to be the perfect solution to coating the hairs with colour and drawing in strokes of extra hairs (after outlining with a pencil) to get that more realistic and natural look. The best one I’ve found so far for this is the pen that comes with the Soap and Glory Archery.

The beauty of being blonde haired is that we can literally have it all! After all, our eyebrows are – literally – a blank canvas that we can draw on. We already get that Kim K bleached brow editorial look with no effort required, but we can also look great with dark brows too! In most cases, if you want your eyebrows to stand out a bit more, don’t be afraid to go for a colour one shade darker. It will still look natural and give you more definition, especially if it’s for an event where flash photography will be used, you certainly want to make sure your eyebrows don’t get bleached out in the photos!

  • A sturdy, cool/grey toned brow pencil
    anything too creamy will not stick to your brows and come off during the day.
  • A thick pomade
    by this I mean, you don’t want a brow pomade that is too creamy as it will slip ‘n’ slide all over your brows and is likely to wipe off after one touch.

Natural blondes understand the frustration of trying to define, fill or correct the shape of their blonde eyebrows. Thick, dark, defined eyebrows may be featured on the catwalk, but it isn’t a look that suits those with fair hair and light eyebrows. Even super model Gisele Bundchen has admitted to struggling with her blonde eyebrows. Pencils sold on the high street are usually too dark, which makes application difficult and daunting.

That’s why Debra Robson has launched new specialist blonde eyebrow treatment called BrowLites™.

BrowLites ™ promises a completely natural, highly effective result for those with blonde or light eyebrows. The semi-permanent treatment defines and reshapes eyebrows with a fair pigment to match your hair colour.

Debra explains: “For this technique, I start by creating a blonde base in the eyebrow shape. Through that base, I add highlights of a deeper colour, which gives a very natural effect for those with naturally fair hair. This new treatment has been extensively trialled, with highly successful results. I can’t wait to see the look on clients’ faces when they first set eyes on their newly defined brows!”

If you have blonde eyebrows and struggle to create a defined shape, then a BrowLites™ treatment is definitely for you. To book your consultation, please complete our contact form and a member of the Debra Robson LDN team will be happy to help.

How to fill blonde eyebrowsModel photography and makeup by Dallas Curow

Eyebrows have long been an over-groomed feature, having been waxed, plucked or threaded into oblivion over the last few decades. Recently, inspired by the natural features of celebrities such as model Cara Delevingne and starlet Lily Collins, full brows have made a full resurgence in the beauty zeitgeist.

So full brows are back, but what if yours aren’t? Years of depilation can often take a toll on hair growth, leaving longtime tweezer devotees with sparse prospects. Thankfully, cosmetic companies are well aware of the bushy brow trend and have responded with a wealth of products to fill in even the most barely there brows.

We’ve put together a little primer on how to whip your brows into fighting shape, regardless of what you’ve got going on right now.

How to fill blonde eyebrowsPhotography and makeup by Dallas Curow; Models: Maggie and Angelika/The Rock Agency

Consider having your brows professionally tinted. The main benefit of this is darkening all the hairs you’ve got, even the fine, blonde ones. This will instantly give you the look of a fuller, denser brow, even without makeup.

Do some basic grooming. Yes, growing in your brows does require that you put down your tweezers, but you should still consider strategically removing some hairs. For example, the unibrow has not made any sort of comeback, so you might want to clean up the area between your brows to create definition.

Prep your brows. Comb them through with a brow brush or clean toothbrush. Brush them upwards and outwards, roughly following their growth pattern. Now you’re ready to add a product.

Pencil
Choose an eyebrow pencil that’s one shade lighter than your natural brow colour. This will help you fill in the brows gradually without looking too harsh. Apply the pencil one stroke at a time, using a light touch and drawing small lines that look like hairs themselves.

Powder
There is no shortage of brow powders on the market, but regular old eyeshadow can work just as well when you’re just starting out. The trick is to choose a shade that’s close to your brow colour but slightly ashy (read: grayish), not warm. This creates a more natural effect. Apply using a small angled brush, using short, delicate strokes.

Waterproof Liner
There are many varieties of waterproof liners and they all work quite well. You can use a waterproof felt tip liner in a shade deeper than your brow colour to create an intense effect as we did on our brunette model. Just make sure you use a really light hand to keep it looking relatively natural. Or you can layer one or two shades that are lighter than your brow colour for a highlighting effect. On our blonde model, we layered shades of metallic gold and bronze waterproof gel eye pencils.

Tinted Gel
The quickest and easiest product for adding fullness to your brows is a tinted gel, which you can basically consider a mascara for your brows! The cool thing about gels is that they’re usually fairly sheer, so you can experiment with a few different shades to see which effect you like best. Try using a lighter shade to highlight and brighten your brows. Or, add drama by using a slightly darker shade. The only downside to a gel is it doesn’t give you the same precision as the other products.

Blonde Gel: Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in “Blonde” ($29, sephora.ca)
Brunette Gel: Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in “Caramel” ($29, sephora.ca)

Bonus Tip: Layering different brow products often produces the best effect. For example, you could pencil in sparse areas, add a bit more density with powder, then set the brow with a tinted gel or clear mascara.

As you can see in the pics, my eyebrows are basically invisible in most lights. I keep on reading about the importance of eyebrows but I don't know where to start or if I should? Everything I see made for eyebrows is so dark! Would I benefit from defining eyebrows? What should I get to start with that will look natural? Should I just not bother? Does my face look ok with my ultra light brows lol?

I think you are gorgeous and very natural. IF you decided you wanted to try defining your brows for a change, special occasion. I'd start with a brow powder. you can control how deep you want the outcome to be with a light hand and practice with the right brush.

Maressa H.

I have super blonde (basically invisible) eyebrows too and I use NYX eye pencil in taupe just like Velen recommended. I've never seen the blonde shade in stores but I would definitely try it if I found it!

Beth W.

Mine are blonde yet I have brown hair I use mua eyebrow kit and it is really good 😉

Nicole R.

Ooh I'll have to check the nyx pencils out, might just get the blonde and taupe if I can find them just to figure out what I like best.

Tealy A.

Mac has some great eyeshadows that work for blonde hair, I can't think of the name but I know they do. If you search "Filling in blonde eyebrows" on YouTube I'm sure you'll find some helpful videos :). An eyebrow pencil is also an option, but a powder tends to look more natural.

Shaye M.

My eyebrows are very similar to yours without filling them in, I use a shadow so it isn't too harsh but still enough to define then and make them a bit darker.

Shaye M.

Cat C.

You can definitely benefit from it! Using any blond, taupe or even light brown product will work.
If you want to start slow and ease into the look of defined brows, I'd try a tinted brow gel. I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills toned brow get. It's great with color and keeping my long eyebrow hairs in place (:

Jocelyn S.

I would start with the lighter shade of Benefits Gimme Brow. It's like a tinted brow gel and it's really easy for beginners– I just started using it last week and it's pretty easy to master and with the light brown color it'll really work well on your blonde. It really complements my red brows without looking abnormal.

Nicole R.

Luckily the store had one of the blondish nyx brow pencils left (no taupe). So I will play with that a bit and post pics to see if I'm doing it right lol. Sadly the closest sephora is about 3 hours away even though I really love them. I mostly buy my high end makeup in big hauls when I go out of town unless I know the product well enough to buy online. I will surely look at the benefit brow gel when I can though, I love benefit.

Eyebrows. They will make or break your makeup look. Try doing full makeup without filling them in, and then fill them in last. You’ll be shocked how they finish your face!

I do my eyebrows everyday and these three products will make it really easy and will take less than three minutes.

First, take the Anastasia of Beverly Hills eye pencil and fill in areas that are sparse or don’t have hair growing. Use this to also add a tail if you need some. On my face I have a hard time growing hair at the front nearest my nose, so I add a few lines here.

If you need more coverage, the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Powder Duo is an awesome powder fill in. There are two tones in the color palette. There is both a light and dark color area so you can use it where you need it. I use the light to add a bit more oomph where I do have hair, but then I use the darker in parts of my eyebrow that are very thin.

When you’re done with that, use the Benefit Gimme Brow and apply like mascara. This is a holy cow, must own product. I love it and if in a pinch will only use this. It’s a must have makeup product for me. You should try it for sure. I wear the lightest color, but believe it or not, I’m a true blonde (though I do dye it lighter than it is now.) It’s very true to color so you can definitely order online (Sephora lets you return things that don’t work for you!)

The Benefit Gimme Brow does both things – it thickens and fills, and then locks the hair into place. It’s like a hairspray for your eyebrows so they stay put after you make them pretty!

Three products. Three minutes. A world of difference! Now have you read about my morning skincare routine?
