If you’ve ever shown up to your eyebrow appointment with a screenshot of Gigi in your saves and expected your brow lady to reverse years of plucking and waxing within a few moments, it’s probably not going to happen. You can, however, fake the look of thicker brows by using the makeup stash you (probably) already have. The key to bushy brows is patience, a thin brush and something you might not expect: a bar of soap. When picking a soap, use one that is formulated for the face or sensitive skin.

To get this look, you’ll need:

A clean spoolie
A bar of gentle soap
Stiff angled brush like Giorgio Armani Eye & Brow Maestro Brush
Brow Pomade like NYX Tame and Frame Tinted Brow Pomade
Concealer like NYX Wonder Pencil Concealer

STEP 1: Using a clean, wet spoolie, rub the brush against the bar of soap to collect a bit of soap in the spoolie.

STEP 2: Brush the hairs upward with the soapy spoolie to give eyebrows a bushy appearance. The soap will cling to individual hairs, making them look thicker.


STEP 3: Using a stiff, angled brush, create hair-like strokes in the areas where your brows are sparse or thin.

STEP 4: As you fill in your brows, make sure not to overfill them — you want it to look as natural as possible. In between brush strokes, comb through your brow with a spoolie.




STEP 5: Use your concealer to clean up the edges and carve out the shape you want. Pick a lighter shade for underneath your arch to highlight and raise it a bit.



STEP 6: Lock it all in with a clear brow gel or mascara — we like the IT Cosmetics Brow Power Pomade — just be careful not to mess up all your hard work!


Gigi … is that you?
