Mistake No. 8: Filling in brows with a pencil or powder that's too darkThis is the biggest mistake Streicher sees when it comes to filling in brows. If the brow pencil or powder you're using is the same color as your hair, it's too dark. Too dark brows look very unnatural.
The fix: Choose a pencil or powder that's "a shade or two lighter than your hair color," Streicher says. Or use a tinted brow gel, which looks even more natural and adds fullness and length to your brows. If you have very sparse brows, fill them with pencil first, top that with powder then finish with a tinted brow gel. Seems like a lot steps just for your brows, but "if your brows look good, everything else will look good," Streicher says.
