Full, well-shaped eyebrows add SO much to your face (and are very much on-trend). But I didn’t always pay attention to my brows! In fact, it wasn’t until a couple years ago I started using an eyebrow pencil at all. These days, I’m loving products from Billion Dollar Brows, including their Brow Boost that thickens brows and their Brow Powder to fill in. Keep reading for more tools and tricks to get the best brows!

TWEEZE: Easy first tip? Don’t over-pluck. When you do shape, visualize (and fill in) your brows before you pluck so you don’t go too far. Check out this guide from The Beauty Department to determine where your brows should start, arch, etc., or try picking up this kit to guarantee the best shape. To stay safe, only tweeze underneath, and be sure to step back and take a look every once in a while to make sure you’re on track. Once you love your brow line, tweeze every few days to remove regrowth.
GROOM: Use a mascara wand or comb to brush the brows upwards and trim any long or wild hairs.
FILL: With a brow pencil or powder (I love the BDB powder), fill in the gaps of your brow with light, feathery strokes. Start light, and apply pencil until you’ve reached the desired shade. Blend using the brush end of the pencil.
FINISH: Once you’ve filled in your brows and everything looks good, dust a bit of translucent powder over arches to set the brow pencil or apply a brow gel over your brow powder or pencil with the applicator to keep stray brow hairs in place.
