Share Tweet Pin

It's no secret that big, bold brows are in. Although it may seem foolproof to just grab any brow filler and start swiping away, many times you need a little direction if you're a newbie. So, we're here to help you out with everything from prep to those perfect finishing touches! Take a peek at some of the tips we've compiled over many years of serious brow DRAMA. 



+ Don't overpluck your eyebrows! Trust us, it almost always seems like a good idea, then almost always turns into a disaster. If you're struggling to find a brow shape that works for you, or you want to transition to another brow shape you'll want to go to a professional.

+ Use using a spool or small brush to brush your eyebrow hair up and then down — this will help you find the natural shape of your eyebrow, decide which shape you want to accent, and call attention to any spots you might want spend extra time filling in.
