How to make your eyebrows look fuller

11th October 2016

Autumn is here and fashion is still about Cara Delevigne-esque fuller eyebrows. If you want to achieve a perfect autumn makeup look, but you have very thin and sparse eyebrows that spoil the look, then this guide is for you. Here are a few suggestions on you to make your eyebrows look fuller and stunning. From makeup, to SMP eyebrows, to eyebrow transplant, this list covers all the options.

Makeup products

The market is overflowing with eyebrow makeup products since fuller eyebrows went in fashion. You can choose between eyebrow shadows, filling pencils, gels, waxes, and more. The purpose of them all is to make your eyebrows look thicker and fuller. You can fill in any gaps you have if you are growing your eyebrows, or if you over-plucked them. They do the trick even if you want to cover any scars. The advantage of such products is that you can choose the best colour so that it matches your skin and hair colour and that you can draw a brow shape that flatters your face. The big drawback is that you have to draw your eyebrows every time you do your makeup and it can be time consuming and expensive.  It’s also very difficult to get both eyebrows identical if you’re doing them yourself.


Microblading is a technique that makes your eyebrows denser and very natural looking. The expert uses a specially designed blade to create very fine hair like lines with pigment. They carefully draw the hair on your eyebrow one by one before they apply the pigment. A follow-up is needed one month after your appointment and although no special care is required, you will be going for a brief touch-up once a year. It is similar to SMP eyebrows as it uses pigment to give semi-permanent results. However, it can be more expensive than SMP eyebrows although they both use a pigment based technique and the results last for more or less the same amount of time.

SMP Eyebrows

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is technique where hundreds of tiny pigments are added onto the eyebrows to replicate follicles and help enhance density. This technique is successful in making your eyebrows look thicker and fuller. It is also perfect in covering any eyebrow scars you might have. SMP works well on darker eyebrows with at least a few hairs. Otherwise, the result will look unnatural and the SMP will be too obvious. SMP eyebrows is a good option if you want something more permanent with little maintenance every year. At Harley Street Hair Clinic we have had some amazing and totally natural results using the SMP eyebrow procedure.

Eyebrow transplant

If you are looking for permanent solution then you should consider eyebrow transplant. At Harley Street Hair Clinic we are experts at performing the FUE eyebrow reconstruction technique. During eyebrow transplantation, hair follicles are taken from the back of the scalp and they are carefully transplanted onto the eyebrows. One by one the hairs are put into small incisions that have the right angle in order to mimic the rest of the eyebrow hair. This is a micro-surgical technique leaving no scars or wounds. This is a good option for people with very thin or no eyebrows with perfectly natural and permanent results.
