Taupe is a universally flattering for any eyebrow color.
Using your eyebrow comb, brush your eyebrow down to create a defined line at the top of your eyebrow.
Hold your brush at the outer corner of your nose and see where it lines up with the outer corner of your eye. This is where your eyebrow should naturally end. If it is not that long, make a dot at this spot with your eye shadow.
Load up your brush and start outlining the top of your brow. Go along the arch using short strokes.
Using your comb, brush your eyebrows upward.
Load up your brush again, and using a short, upward motion, fill in your eyebrow by starting in the inner corner. Be extra careful when you get to the arch, and avoid making it too thick.
Lightly outline the bottom of the brow, defining the arch. Use a combination of going with the grain of the brow and an upward motion.
If you have sparse areas, go back in with your taupe shadow.
Take your comb and brush your brows upward and across to make the perfect outline.
To finish your look, use a clear mascara or brow gel to hold your brows in place.
