Essentials To Beat, Tweeze And Tame Your Own Brows At Home
Great eyebrows are the one thing every woman desires. And while you can get them waxed at your local salon and hit up a makeup counter to have them filled in, when you wake up the next morning, it’s just you and those brows — and hopefully one or two of the tools on this list.
See, eyebrow maintenance is no joke and few of us can run to someone to have every stray hair trimmed, tweezed, or threaded to maintain perfect shape. That’s why it’s essential to have a few of these essentials in your beauty arsenal at home, depending on your preferences.
Sometimes hairs grow too long and throw off the shape of the brow which is where these shears come into play. These angled scissors come with a detachable and reversible dual-ended comb so you can cut in the direction your hair grows on both brows.
Need to kill the stubble that’s popping up under your perfect arch but is too short to catch with tweezers? Pull out this razor set. Like the shears, it can also be used to cut long hairs. After you use the tool with the brush and comb to lay hairs straight up, use the razor to cut off the excess.
Tweezing is the best way to get rid of strays because it pulls hair out directly from the root. These mini slant tweezers are perfect for hard-to-reach hairs you can’t let go between waxing and threading appointments.
If you’re saying forget the salon all together and planning to arch your brows all on your own, let Anastasia guide you. The brand is known for all things brows and these stencils will help you get the shape of your dreams, just like the stencils used in her brow salons.
You cannot fill in any brow without making sure the hairs are laying down in the correct direction. That’s where this essential eye tool from Urban Decay comes in with a brow brush, spoolie, and comb to keep you beat from brow to lash.
If you don’t have time for detailed filling in and like to keep your brow routine low maintenance, go with a brow gel like this one that will lay hairs down and add just a tad more definition with its deep brown color.
Are eye pencils more your thing? Go with this option from Benefit which already comes with a spoolie for shaping hairs on one end and an ultra fine soft pencil on the other for creating natural looking brows with depth.
If you want everything you need for your brows in one place, this Brow Box is your best bet. It comes with two powders for filling in brows, a wax for ensuring hairs stay laid, and underneath is a compartment with mini tweezers, a mini-spoolie, and a mini eyebrow brush so your full arsenal is on you at all times.
Once you shape and fill in brows, a touch of highlight will really make them pop. If you’re not yet ready to use concealer for this step or can’t be bothered with the mess, let this pro pencil be your best friend. Apply it under your arch to make your eyebrows stand out more. Bonus: It can also be used to conceal blemishes and as a primer base for eyeshadow.
