How to Create an Elegant Eyebrow Shape for Women Over 50

2 Materials
2 Minutes

In this eyebrow tutorial, I’m going to show you some flattering eyebrow shapes for over 50.

I’ll be demonstrating how this liquid eyebrow makeup took my very sparse, overly-plucked eyebrows and perfectly framed them.

I’m using a brown shade, but you can find a number of different colors depending on your skin tone and hair color. Let’s get started!

The makeup I'm using today is from the Look Fabulous Forever Range, made specifically for mature skin. However, you can achieve the same results with any brand of makeup.

Tools and materials:

  • Liquid eyebrow makeup
  • Clean spoolie
Preparing brush

1. Prepare the brush for application

Give the bottle a good shake to make sure the product is evenly distributed, then take the brush out of the container.

Rub the excess off on the brow base itself so you’re not applying a blob of product. 

Working in small brush strokes

2. Start with small brush strokes

When applying, the trick is to use very fine brush strokes to imitate the growth of hair and the shape of the brows.

I have to use a mirror to see what I’m doing, and it takes a bit of practice but it’s worth every minute.

Use these brush strokes to map out the natural shape of a brow you like.

Spreading the darker pigment

3. Spread the darker pigment

You’ll put more pigment at the end of the brow. That way, you can pick up some of that slightly darker product on the end and take it around the rest of the brow.

Cleaning up

4. Use a spoolie to clean up the darkest areas

Let the brow makeup settle for a second.

I tend to do both brows and then use a spoolie brush to go over the eyebrows to remove and blend in those darker areas where the contrast is a bit too high.

    I have been struggling with my hideous eyebrows for a very long time. Been plucking them and had them waxed too many times. So grateful you shared your personal experience with us. Also I didn’t know about the makeup you are using. Can’t wait to place my order and hopefully I can do this. Thank you so much! 😊

      Hi Diana, Be careful on the shape you pick for your eyebrows. Do lots of research on shaping to flatter and not distract. Your brow bone will help with that. Practice different shapes to see if they look too extreme. Below are some links to help you. The less you create and the more you follow the natural contour of your brow and how eyebrow hair grows will help you to find the right shape for yourself. Do your research on the makeup you will find everything from micro tips that mimic the look of hair to pencils and gels. If you do have some hair left on your brows have a professional shape them. Tell her you want to watch her do it and have your eyebrows drawn in by him or her. Make sure they are good at what they do. Good luck.

    What is a spoolie brush? Also can you clarify what this means? "Rub the excess off on the brow base itself so you’re not applying a blob of product." does this mean rub the product on the product? Isn't it in a bottle?
