The Ultimate Guide to Shaping and Filling in Your Eyebrows After 40

Ageing gracefully is all about embracing your natural beauty while enhancing what makes you feel confident and empowered. 

One area that can make a significant difference in your appearance is your eyebrows.

As we age, eyebrows tend to become sparser and lose their shape, but with the right techniques, you can easily shape and fill them in to frame your face beautifully. 

Here's a comprehensive guide to help moms and women over 40 achieve stunning eyebrows:

1. Find Your Perfect Shape:

  • Start by determining your natural brow shape: Use a spoolie brush to comb your eyebrow hairs upward. This will reveal your natural brow shape and help you see where you need to fill in.

  • Identify your arch: The arch of your eyebrow should align with the outer edge of your iris when looking straight ahead. Use a brow pencil to mark this point lightly.

  • Determine the length: To find where your brow should end, align a pencil from the corner of your nose to the outer corner of your eye. Where the pencil intersects your eyebrow is where it should end.

2. Choose the Right Products:

  • Pencil: A brow pencil is ideal for filling in sparse areas and defining the shape of your brows. Opt for a pencil that matches your natural brow color.

  • Powder: Brow powder can be used to add volume and fill in gaps. Choose a shade that matches your brow color or is slightly lighter for a softer look.

  • Gel or Pomade: These products can help set your brows in place and add volume. They're especially useful if you have unruly brow hairs.

3. Fill in Your Brows:

  • Use short, feathery strokes: Mimic the look of natural brow hairs by using light, short strokes to fill in sparse areas.

  • Start at the arch: Begin filling in your brows at the arch to avoid harsh lines at the front.

  • Blend well: Use a spoolie brush to blend the product and soften any harsh lines.

4. Shape Your Brows:

  • Trimming: Use a brow brush to comb your brow hairs upward. Trim any hairs that extend beyond your natural brow shape with small scissors.

  • Plucking: Remove any stray hairs outside your natural brow shape. Be careful not to over-pluck, as this can lead to sparse brows.

5. Set Your Brows:

  • Use a clear brow gel: This will set your brows in place and keep them looking groomed all day.

6. Additional Tips:

  • Avoid harsh lines: Soft, natural-looking brows are the most flattering as you age.

  • Consider tinting: If your brows are very light, consider tinting them to add definition and make filling them in easier.

  • Consult a professional: If you're unsure about shaping your brows, consider visiting a professional brow artist for guidance.

With these tips and techniques, you can easily shape and fill in your eyebrows to enhance your natural beauty and frame your face. 

Experiment with different products and techniques to find what works best for you, and don't be afraid to seek professional help if needed.
