5 Must-Try Eyebrow Powder Hacks for Perfectly Defined Brows


Eyebrow powder. Sounds simple enough, but has been known to make or break looks. How, you ask? Well, for starters, its not a beginner-friendly eyebrow product. You need good command over using basics like eyebrow pencils and gels to be able to master the art of applying eyebrow powder. This is mainly due to the powdery and dry nature of this product. Too little and it looks unnatural, too much and it makes your eyebrows look unnatural. Catch 22? Not if you know just the right techniques to ace it. 

So, here we are. Bringing to you the 5 must-try eyebrow powder hacks for perfectly defined brows. 


  1. Choose the Right Eyebrow Powder Shade:

  • The key here is to look at your natural eyebrow hairs. Some people have dark brows, some have light. 
  • But the devil lies in the detail, so go deep and figure out if you have dark brown eyebrows, or light brown eyebrows, or jet black, or soft black.
  • Now, the magic here is in picking the perfect shade of brow powder. 
  • Opt for a shade that matches your natural brow color or is slightly lighter. 
  • This helps you with a softer, more natural look. 
  • Avoid going too dark, as it can appear harsh and unnatural. Especially if you have lighter scalp hair. 
  • Test the brow powder on the back of your hand or wrist to ensure a seamless match first.
  1. Blend It Like Beckham:

  • Well, not literally. But yes, blending of your brow powder is crucial. 
  • Start blending while you are already applying the eyebrow powder. 
  • Use a spoolie brush to comb through your brows before starting. 
  • This helps distribute the product evenly and prevents clumps. 
  • After applying the eyebrow powder, use the spoolie again to blend more and soften the harsh lines.
  1. Mix and Match Eyebrow Powder Shades:

  • One of the greatest advantages of brow powder is — its ability to create custom shades. 
  • So, if you can't find your perfect match, then don't be afraid. Just mix two or more shades together. 
  • Use a small angled brush to blend the colors. You can even adjust the intensity as per your need. 
  • Mixing of shades also adds depth and dimension to your brows, making them look more fuller and natural.
  1. Set with a Clear Brow Gel:

  • Your brow powder, however tightly applied, runs the chance of getting depleted throughout the day. 
  • The trick hence is in locking the powder in by applying a clear brow gel.
  • This step is especially important if you have unruly or thick brows that tend to stray throughout the day. 
  • Or if you live in humid/hot/wet weather.
  • The clear gel will keep your brows looking sharp and defined without adding any additional color.
  1. Use a Stencil for Precision:

  • Its a struggle to get that symmetry right. 
  • Defining the arch is another struggle most of us want to conquer. 
  • Therefore, try using a stencil. 
  • Eyebrow stencils come in various shapes and sizes. 
  • Simply hold the stencil over your brow and fill it in with your eyebrow powder. 
  • This ensures precision, shaping as well as definition.
