The Ultimate Guide
Eyebrow gel is a game-changer when it comes to achieving perfectly defined brows. Whether you have naturally full brows or need a little help filling them in, eyebrow gel can help you achieve a flawless look that lasts all day. In this ultimate guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about using eyebrow gel for perfectly defined brows.
Choose the right shade
The first step to achieving perfectly defined brows with eyebrow gel is to choose the right shade. If you have blonde hair, go for a lighter shade of eyebrow gel. If you have dark hair, go for a darker shade. If you’re not sure which shade to choose, try going for a shade that’s one or two shades lighter than your natural hair color.

Start with clean, dry brows
Before you start applying eyebrow gel, make sure your brows are clean and dry. Use a gentle cleanser, like the 100% Pure Cucumber Cloud Foam Cleanser, to remove any makeup or oil, and pat your brows dry with a clean towel. This will help the eyebrow gel adhere to your brows better and last longer.
Use a spoolie brush to comb your brows
Once your brows are clean and dry, use a spoolie brush to comb your brows upwards. This will help you see the natural shape of your brows and any areas that need filling in. Use the spoolie brush to fill in any sparse areas, using short, feathery strokes to mimic the natural hair growth. Our Pick: Hynt Beauty Duo Brow Spoolie Brush.
Apply the eyebrow gel
Now it’s time to apply the eyebrow gel. Start at the inner corner of your brow and use the applicator brush to apply the gel in short, upward strokes. Continue to apply the gel in the direction of the hair growth, using short, light strokes. Make sure to apply the gel evenly, and don’t apply too much product at once.
Set the gel in place
To make sure your perfectly defined brows last all day, you’ll need to set the gel in place. Use a clean spoolie brush to comb your brows upwards, then use a small amount of translucent powder or brow powder to set the gel. This will help your brows stay in place all day and prevent smudging or fading.
Clean up any mistakes
If you make any mistakes while applying the eyebrow gel, don’t worry – it’s easy to clean up. Use a clean spoolie brush to brush out any excess product, then use a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to clean up any smudges or mistakes. You can also use a concealer or foundation to clean up any mistakes and create a clean, defined look.
Practice, practice, practice
As with any makeup technique, mastering the art of using eyebrow gel takes practice. Don’t be discouraged if your first attempt isn’t perfect – it takes time and patience to get the hang of it. Keep practicing, and soon you’ll be able to create perfectly defined brows with ease.
In addition to these tips and tricks, there are a few other things to keep in mind when it comes to using eyebrow gel. First, make sure to choose a high-quality eyebrow gel that’s long-lasting and smudge-proof. Some popular eyebrow gels include the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel and the Glossier Boy Brow.
Another thing to keep in mind is the importance of choosing the right brush. A small, angled brush is perfect for precise application, while a spoolie brush is ideal for blending and shaping your brows. Make sure to use a clean brush each time you apply eyebrow gel to prevent the spread of bacteria.
Finally, don’t forget to have fun with your brows! Eyebrow gel is a versatile product that can be used to create a range of looks, from natural and subtle to bold and dramatic. Try different techniques and color combinations to find the look that works best for you. And don’t be afraid to switch things up – you can always change the shape or color of your brows with a little bit of eyebrow gel.
