How do Beginners Conceal Eyebrows

Concealing eyebrows can be an essential skill for various makeup looks, ranging from theatrical to drag, or just for those looking to experiment with a different brow shape or size.

Here’s a beginner-friendly Step-by-Step guide on how to conceal your eyebrows


Start with a clean face. Make sure your eyebrows are clean and dry, with no oils, makeup, or moisturizers that might prevent products from adhering properly.

Apply Glue Stick

Use a washable glue stick (preferably one that dries clear) to flatten your eyebrows. Apply the glue against the grain of your eyebrow hairs to ensure every hair is coated, then smooth the hairs back in the direction they grow. Repeat this step several times to ensure the eyebrows are completely flat. Between each layer, allow the glue to dry, or use a blow dryer on a cool setting to speed up the process.

Pressing and Setting

Once your eyebrows are glued down and the glue is fully dry, use a spatula or the back of a spoon to press the hairs down as flat as possible. Then, set the glue with a generous application of translucent powder, pressing the powder into the brows with a puff or sponge.


Apply a full-coverage concealer or foundation over your brows. It’s best to use a product that matches your skin tone. Pat the product over your brows rather than wiping to prevent disturbing the glue. To completely cover the brows, you may need to apply several layers, and make sure to set each layer with powder to prevent the product from moving.

Setting Everything

After achieving full coverage, set your makeup with another layer of translucent powder to ensure everything stays in place.

Finishing Touches

Now that your eyebrows are concealed, you can draw on new eyebrows using eyebrow pencils, pomades, or eyeshadows, depending on the look you’re going for.


When you’re ready to remove the makeup, use an oil-based makeup remover or cleanser to gently dissolve the glue and makeup. Be patient and gentle to avoid pulling out any eyebrow hairs.


This process may take a few tries to perfect, especially if you have thick or stubborn eyebrow hairs. It’s all about practice, so don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t come out perfectly the first time. Experiment with different products and techniques to find what works best for you.
