- Spoolie brush or disposable mascara wand
- Cuticle scissors
- Angled/slant tweezers
- Pointed tweezers
- Brow shadow (taupe for blondes, brown range for everyone else)
- Stiff brow shadow brush, pencil (to line up the angles)
1. With a disposable mascara wand or spoolie brush, brush the hairs upward.
2. With a pair of scissors, trim any hairs that are longer than your brow shape.
3. With angled tweezers, pluck areas above and below the brows.
4. With pointed tweezers, grab stubborn single hairs and shorter ones.
5. To determine where your brow should start, hold a pencil or make-up brush along one side of your nose. Where it crosses the inner corner of your brow, that’s where it should begin.
6. Now angle the pencil across the iris; that’s where the arch should begin.
7. Angle it to the end of the outer corner of the eye; that’s where the brow should end.
8. With those angles and lengths in mind, fill in the brows using light, feathery strokes as if you were drawing individual hairs.
