Wow Brows!

Famed makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury once called eyebrows “the pillars of the face.” And the Fashion Week gods agree: We’ve been seeing full, thick arches all over the fall runways. Here, a few tips for getting your best brows:

  • Always get a professional brow shaping and be specific with the technician about what shape you want (bring a photo of your favorite brow look if that helps), then use a tweezer like Tweezerman Slant Tweezer to grab strays in between visits. Money-saving bonus: Tweezerman offers free sharpening for life when you purchase their tweezers.
  • Then, use a powder or soft pencil (such as Anastasia Go Brow Universal Brow Pencil or Benefit Brow Zings Kit) in light, feathery motions to fill in any sparse spots for a full, perfectly-shaped look.
  • Slick a bit of brow gel over hairs keep them in line—both tinted and clear versions do the trick.
  • Finish with a dab of highlighter, like Smashbox Eye Beam Double-Ended Brightener, under browbones to conceal any strays and give arches a flattering lift.
