Find Your Perfect Shape
If your eyebrows lack shape or that bold arch you’ve always pined over, it’s best to start here. Go to a salon or the Benefit Brow Bar where they will help you find your perfect shape and even show you how to grow your eyebrows out to create it or use products to give you that shape.
Use Tweezers Accordingly
Whether you’re growing out your eyebrows or touching them up, it’s best to leave the shaping to the professionals. Only pluck outside of your eyebrow shape, but make sure to keep them clean. If you go too long without plucking or waxing, your eyebrows will take on a life of their own and start growing in places you definitely don’t want them to.
Go Easy On the Eyebrow Product
There’s a plethora of beauty products out there that will give you a bold brow so it’s easy to get caught up in all of it. Between the eyebrow gel, pencil and even eyeshadow for your brows, it’s easy to overdue them. Keep it simple.
