First, step one is the Brow Liner--let's take a peek:
Define and shape your brows with rich, smudge-proof, long-wearing color. Fill in any gaps with this fine-tipped pencil that mimics the appearance of tiny hairs.
Each double-ended pencil comes with a liner tip and a spoolie brush on the opposite end.
When I first looked at this and even when I first started drawing in the little lines, my first thought was "UH OH, am I gonna look like Groucho Marx?" But I was really pleasantly surprised by how well the liner blends, just with the spoolie brush. Take a peek below for swatches on my hand :
|TOP TO BOTTOM : Straight line. Short strokes, Blended with spoolie end|
And I was really impressed with how natural it looked! Defined but not anything crazy, just the way I like it! I know BOLD eyebrows are very in right now, but I'm more comfortable with a more natural silhouette.
The trick I realized is to use short flicks of the liner to fill in the gaps in your brows and then really meticulously blend with the spoolie brush. Any little smudges can be fixed with a cotton swab dipped in a bit of makeup remover. Here's a look at how my brows look, with and without the liner!

Now, step two is the Brow Gel :
Brush on this nourishing fiber gel, formulated with Uplift Eye Serum, to both shape and tame existing brows while filling in and thickening sparse areas.
The Brow Gel, or well at least my sample, had a teeny, tiny brush that made applying it to even the smallest brow hairs a breeze! I pretty much just used the same quick, small stroke method over the Liner.
Now, I have to admit, I had another UH OH moment with the Brow Gel, because, yes, it's tinted and yes, I chose the darkest shade available. But again, I worried for nothing, The tint isn't anything crazy dark and won't make your brows look harsh--in fact, you can brush little bits on as needed and build it up to the depth you desire. You can see from the swatch below that it's a tinted, rather than a full-blown color.
Here's a look at the finished product! Once the Brow Gel goes on after the Liner, you get a bolder, more noticeably refined look. The Liner fills and enhances while the Gel refines and finishes the look. Like a more natural look? Use just the Liner with a touch of the Gel. Prefer a bold brow? Use a heavier hand with the Gel. Couldn't be simpler!
