Believe it or not, your eyebrows play a major role in locking down your best beauty look. After meeting with A-list makeup guru Tonya Crooks, known by many as The Brow Gal, we took home a few trusty tips on maintaining and perfecting this often overlooked yet seriously important facial feature. With all the right tools and a little insight from the experts, you too can have the best brows ever.
How To Get Gorgeous Brows
Trim And Define Your Brows When Needed
Look to grooming scissors with a short, straight blade to shape when needed. A straight blade allows you to cut at an angle along your arch for precise shaping. However, be cautious not to overtrim!
Invest In Precision Tweezers
Quality is a must when investing in a new pair of tweezers. The fine slanted tip on these allow you to remove the tiniest hairs for a successful clean up and sculpting of the brows. Even better, their precision makes plucking a little less painful.
Get Your Shade Right
According to Tonya Crooks, focus on matching your hairline to your eyebrow pencil if you're a brunette. If you have blonde hair, you have more freedom to rock anything from a natural ash shade to a dark, dramatic brow depending on your preference.
Seal The Deal With Brow Gel
Applying clear brow gel tames unruly hairs and smooths the eyebrow's canvas, which can come in handy in between waxings and on days when you know you won't have your makeup bag handy for touchups.
Shape And Illuminate With A Highlighter
Highlighting your brows results in a thicker and fuller appearance. We adore Tonya's luxe pencils, which are double sided and contain both matte and shimmering shades.
Try This Secret Weapon
Applying this unexpected salve to your arches will leave them looking sleek and styled. Trust us, it really works!
