How to Make Brow Filler

An accidental overplucking or a wild wax job will cause otherwise perfectly shaped eyebrows to become misshapen or covered with patches of missing hair. Eyebrow filler can help conceal these mistakes and comes in many forms, including pencil, gel and permanent tattooing. A homemade eyebrow filler is made with eye shadow and gel to fix the botched plucking, waxing or shaving in a pinch.

Locate a powdered eye shadow colour as close to your brow's natural colour as possible. If required, mix two eye shadow colours to create a difficult eyebrow shade.

Break up the powdered brick of eye shadow with a toothpick. Place 1 Tbsp of the powder into a shallow bowl.

Add 1/4 tbsp clear aloe vera gel to the eye shadow. Add more eye shadow if necessary to create a tone that matches your eyebrow's colour.

Apply the mixture to the eyebrows with an angled eyebrow brush. Start at inner corner of the brows, and work your way toward the centre and then to the outer edge of the brow.

Blend the filler into the eyebrows with a clean mascara wand. Once again, start at the inner corner of the brow and work your way to the outer corner.

Spray a light coating of hairspray onto the brow to set the filler.
