DIY: How To Perfectly Shape Your Brows
It’s no secret that good eyebrows can completely change the look of your face.
Just look at Cara Delevingne, Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Ali Michaels, all of which have solid careers based on their brows. But where do the rest of us start? Use the following tools and tricks to create the perfect set of brows.
Pluck the strays
But don’t go overboard! It might seem a little therapeutic to get rid of any stray hairs, but remember to keep your look natural. Follow the path of your brows and always pluck in the direction of the hair.

Use a gel
Whether you were blessed with big, bushy brows or something a little more sparse, it’s always important to use a brow gel. Not only does it help to lock-in your brows, but it keeps them looking neat and tidy.

Fill them in
Depending on the look you want to go for, there are a few different ways to fill in your brows. But the most popular methods include:
Pencils: These are quick and easy ways to draw in some extra hairs without the hassle of perfecting the entire look. Brush them through with the spoolie on the opposite end to create a natural look.

Coloured gel: A tinted brow gel is another quick and easy way to bring more depth to your brows. Simply brush in an upwards motion, and remove any of the excess with a cotton tip. This is best for girls with darker brows, since the look requires little maintenance. It’s like a 2-in-1 since the gel and colour are already combined.

Pomade: If your brows are very fine, then a pomade is the best way to give them a re-vamp. Use in conjunction with an angled brush to create wispy hairs, then smooth it our using a clean spoolie. This look requires a little more time to create the perfect look, but your brows will last all day long.

Don’t be afraid to trim some of those stray hairs which can get a little out of control. Use small nail scissors to get the perfect style, then slowly trim the edges. A spoolie wand is the best way to measure the length of your brows, then trim them finely without going over the top.
