Transform Your Natural Eyebrow Look in 4 Steps
Want fabulous eyebrows without lifting a pencil or pomade to shape them? It’s actually possible (and easier than you think!). Ahead, learn how to keep your natural brows looking flawless and well-kept in four easy steps.

STEP 1: Trim Your Eyebrows  

Natural and unruly eyebrows aren’t synonymous. If you want a natural brow that looks well-groomed, you may want to start by trimming them. For this step, use a makeup spoolie to brush the hairs up and trim the longest hairs one at a time. 

The trick here is having patience and going slow. You can always trim more, but you can’t make your hairs instantly grow back if you over-trim them. Also, using a precise tool, like the Joey Healy Precision Brow Scissor, is key.

STEP 2: Tweeze Your Eyebrows

After trimming, 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-on look. We recommend plucking away obvious strays using a slanted set of tweezers for better grip.

STEP 3: Brush Your Brows 

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, you’re going to want to set your brows in place using a clear, lightweight gel. We love the L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Top Coat because it’s waterproof and locks eyebrows in place for up to 30 hours.
