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.

Tweezerman is making eyebrow shaping a little less painful. Its special edition line of tweezers feature decorative artwork, and include designs by Betsey Johnson (left), Agatha Ruiz de La Prada, and Benefit Cosmetics. There’s a design to fit every personality: wild animal prints, kitschy patterns, girly florals and even edgy skulls. These mini masterpieces make great gifts, and like all Tweezerman tweezers, they come with free sharpening and lifetime guarantee! The Betsey Johnson and Agatha Ruiz de La Prada designs are sold exclusively at Sephora, and the Tweezerman for Benefit collection can be found at Macy’s.
Would you trade your ordinary tweezers for one of these eye-opening designs?
