By now, it’s safe to say most of us are contouring wizards. In fact, if contouring was a college major, we’d all have our degrees in it. We’ve mastered the contouring process of pretty much every part of body: cheeks, nose, boobs, arms, and even collarbone. Now that we’re pros at the basics, it’s time to set our sites on the more unknown facets of contouring, starting with the brows. If you’re wondering if contouring your brows is even a thing, let us assure you it is. Natural, full eyebrows should have dimension and this little trick delivers just that. We decided to get to the bottom of this uncharted territory by asking YouTube darling and brow master Alana Dawn to show us how to contour eyebrows like a pro. If this trick gives us brows like hers, we are so on board!

How to Contour Your Eyebrows

Step 1: Grab a brow powder and outline the top and bottom borders of your brows. If using a two-toned brow set, use the darker shade to outline. Try using the Urban Decay Brow Box.

Step 2: Using an angled brush, fill in the center of your brows with your brow powder (the darker shade) so the color is heavier than the rest of your brows.

Step 3: If using a kit, apply the lighter brow powder to both ends of the eyebrows and blend them inward, into the darker powder. Use a brush to blend the darker shade outward, toward both sides of the brow so the color transition is seamless.

Step 4: Apply concealer along the outer top and bottom borders of the brow and blend it in well with a concealer brush so the brow shape is clearly defined.
