The Pluck-a-phobe's Guide to Eyebrow Shaping

Brow Maintenance

It might sound weird, but brushing your brows keeps them looking neat -- and how you brush them does make a big difference. If you want to bulk up sparse brows, brush them upward. For a thinner look, brush them sideways. If you have particularly unruly or long brows, you can trim them (carefully!) with nail scissors. Fill in your brows with tinted gel or powder only if you need to, and use a shade close to your natural color or slightly darker. Again, pencil is usually a no-no -- it tends to look unnatural.
