Transform Your Natural Eyebrow Look in 4 Steps
There are two types of people in the world: Those who have an elaborate ten-step eyebrow routine and those who avoid using brow makeup all together. Little do both parties know that there is a sweet middle ground where you can have great-looking eyebrows without lifting a pencil or pomade to get it done. In fact, it’s all about adding some general housekeeping tips into your brow routine. Read on for four easy steps that will keep your natural brows flawless with or without a full face of makeup. 

STEP 1: Trim Your Eyebrows  

Natural eyebrows and unruly eyebrows aren’t synonymous. If you want a natural brow that looks well-groomed, you’re going to want to start by trimming your eyebrows. For this step, use a makeup spoolie to brush the hairs up and trim the longest hairs one hair at a time. The trick here is all about having patience and going slow. You can always trim more, but you can’t make your hair grow back instantly once it’s gone. Using a precise tool, like the Joey Healy Precision Brow Scissor, is key.

STEP 2: Tweeze Your Eyebrows

After trimming away those long pieces of hair, you’ll want to go in and fine-tune with a tweezer. Remember, the goal here is to look natural, so there’s no need to remove every single hair until you have that perfectly stenciled eyebrow look. We recommend plucking away those obvious strays using the E.l.f. Slant Tweezer.

STEP 3: Brush It Out 

Now that you’re all primped and primed, brush your brows by sweeping the hair up and out, away from the center of your face. Brushed-up brows look fresh and modern, especially when they’re not filled in. 

STEP 4: Set Your Eyebrows  

Finally, to keep that brushed-out and naturally fluffy look, you’re going to want to set your brows in place using a clear, lightweight gel. We love the Maybelline New York Great Lash Clear Mascara because it works double-duty to set your eyebrows and condition and separate your eyelashes.
