While eyebrows can be a hassle, you definitely shouldn’t ignore them. Brows frame your face and can totally transform your appearance. Even if you don’t want to get into a major overhaul on a regular basis, you should tackle the essential grooming steps. Here’s how to create flawless eyebrows in no time.

Know Your Best Shape

Even without doing a major wax or pluck, you can direct your eyebrows into a particular shape. In order to meet your brow goals, you’ve got to have a shape in mind before you start working. Generally speaking, you should try to create contrast between your facial shape and brows.

  • If you have a round face, go for strong, angular eyebrows.
  • If you have an angular face or a square jaw, opt for a softer, more delicate eyebrow thickness and shape.
  • If you have a heart-shaped face, avoid letting your brows get too thick, or they’ll overwhelm your face.     
  • Have an oval face? Go crazy with your brows! Anything will look good on you.

Comb and Trim

If you aren’t going to pluck your brows, combing and trimming are everything. Grab a clean spoolie (mascara) brush and manicure scissors.

Use the spoolie to push your eyebrows in an upward direction. This will help you see the natural shape that you're working with.

Take your scissors and trim any hairs that poke up above the main line of your brow. Work slowly! You can always come back and trim more later, but short strands take a long time to grow back.

Fill In Your Brows

If your brows have some sparse areas, you’ll want to fill them in with a great product. Fortunately, there are tons of makeup options for every style and colour of eyebrows.

The easiest way to get a uniform look is to use brow gel. We love Benefit Gimme Brow – Brow-Volumising Fiber Gel. All you need to do is comb it over your brows once for a flawless look.

For a foolproof look, an eyebrow pencil is another great pick. Available in multiple natural-looking shades, the Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil can totally transform the look of your brows.
