How to Get Natural Korean Eyebrows [TUTORIAL]

Full, soft eyebrows are the signature look of innumerable Korean celebrities and music artists--and now you can fake it too.

Having full, natural brows helps soften your features, making you look younger (if you desire); it's also flattering on nearly any face shape.

For natural brows, you'll need a few tools: An eyebrow pencil or eyeshadow, a spooly brush, and a cream-based concealer.  Here's how to pull this look together...

Step 1: Add Color to Brows

To define your brows, use an eyebrow pencil or an eyeshadow 2-3 shades lighter than your actual brow color.  A lighter color softens your brows.  Look for a color that's also on the grayer side--brow color that has too much of red tint to it will look too unnatural and harsh.

Color in your brows using soft, sweeping motions, going in the natural direction of your brow.  This will ensure an even, soft application that looks natural.  Make the color slightly darker at the ends of your brow, since this is where your brow naturally becomes more dense.

Eventually, you should have something that looks like this--soft, diffused color from end to end.

Step 2: Blend in the Color

Quick step here--simply take your spooly brush and softly comb through the middle and inner portion of your brows.  This helps blend the color more evenly.  Avoid blending the ends of your brows, which should stay defined.

Step 3: Clean Up the Edges

For a cleaner edge, use a concealer to create a defined edge and highlight.  Here, I'm using a Graftobian concealer.  Draw a thin line of concealer just under your brow, then blend  the color downward.  Avoid using concealer on the top of your brow, which will make your brow look "less" soft, if that makes sense.

And voila!  Nice, full Korean brows--thin brows begone!

Also, here's a tutorial I also recorded demonstrating how to do this:

Good luck!
