Do you suffer from intolerable brows that are naturally too thin, or even too coarse to tame? The secret to perfect brows is a solid skincare routine which requires minimal maintenance for maximum results. Follow our five simple tips for better groomed brows in no-time! All you need is some patience and a lot of attention to detail.
DO: Use an eyebrow serum
Are your brows natural super-thin and don’t grow much? This could all come down to over-plucking or basically removing too much hair from your eyebrows over the last few years. Even if your brows don’t naturally have an arch, it’s best to let them grow out, and get them maintained by a professional on a bi-monthly basis.
Otherwise, you can always turn to eyebrow serum, which helps to grow back your brows if you have any bald patches. Just apply the serum in a small concentrated area (making sure not to get it anywhere else on your face!), and you will see results after the first month.

If you don’t want to slaughter your eyebrows one at a time, then we highly suggest that the tweezers should never come out. They’re good for plucking a few stray hairs here and there, but never rely on them to shape your brows. The hair could break, and can result in painful in-grown hairs instead.
Have you every thought about moisturising your brows? Every night while applying a night moisturiser, run the product through your brows as well. This will tame any dry skin patches that run from the beginning of the brow, but also will smooth down any stray hairs.

DON’T: Over-draw your brows
Give your brows a little definition by filling in any patchy areas with a powder or eyebrow pencil. The best way to do this is by lightly applying the product, then combing it out so it looks natural.
Avoid the ‘scouse brow’ which is commonly referred to a much darker brow, especially where the brow begins. Choose a colour which is as close as possible to your natural brows.
DO: Contour your brows
Make sure the shape of your brows works with your face shape. As a general rule it’s best to avoid super thin brows since this look often feels fake and artificial. The arch of your brow should usually align with the tip of your eye colour.
