1. First of all, figure out what you’re working with.
2. Then determine the best eyebrow shape for your face.
3. As a rule of thumb, the head (AKA where the brow begins) of your eyebrows should line up with your nostrils.
Don’t remove hair past that point.
4. Time to tweeze! Apply Baby Orajel about 20 minutes before plucking if you need help with the pain.
5. Use a brow pencil to fill in your brows BEFORE you pluck so you don’t overdo it.
6. Stand back from your mirror so you can see the whole picture.
7. Once you’ve plucked, use a spoolie brush to brush up your brows. Any hairs that stick up above the brow line can be trimmed with a small pair of nail scissors.
8. When you’re done, you can apply witch hazel to the area if it’s especially red or irritated.
9. Now it’s time to fill in! Check out this chart to find the best color for your brows.
10. If you’re using a pencil, use short, hair-like strokes to mimic the natural look of your brow.
11. You can use a gel with a brush for ~volumized~ brows, and it’ll also help fill in sparse spots.
12. If your brows are extra thin and you need some serious fill in action, use a pomade and a slanted brow brush.
13. Or just go all out with every product there is.
14. You can get fancy by using a lighter brow color at the head and a darker color at the arch. It’s kind of like contouring for your brows.
15. Or, if you’re not into doing your brows every day, you can get them professionally tinted.
16. You can also go the route of eyelash extensions for special occasions (because they sometimes don’t last longer than a week).
17. Or, grab an eyebrow growth serum to get your brows thicker naturally over time.
Remember: Brows can change everything.
