Whether you favour an all-natural, full look or something that’s more of a statement, groomed brows have the ability to anchor your makeup and frame your face in minutes. The good news is that great brows are super-easy to achieve. Here’s what to pack in your beauty kit according to your top brow concern:

For shape

Not blessed with full, Cara Delevingne-esque brows? Join the club! If your eyebrows are thin, sparse or overplucked, creating a fuller shape is your top priority. Brow stencils like Ardell Brow Perfection Stencils will help you figure out your brow shape goals, stat. Pick a stencil that’s a little fatter than your natural eyebrow thickness (while you may want super bold brows, you shouldn’t stray too far from your natural shape) and has an arch in the perfect place. Tip: Your arch should be about three-quarters of the way back from the bridge of your nose. Use your stencil every time you fill in your eyebrows to ensure a consistent and envious shape. 

For thickness

Now that you have the perfect shape for your face, you can start building thickness. A fibre gel like Ardell Brow Fiber adheres to eyebrows to help add thickness to each hair. Do this step before filling in your brows as it will give your eyebrows a fuller effect instantly, and cut down the number of gaps you need to fill in with powder.

For gaps

Even those blessed with full brows can still have an unwanted gap or two. That’s where brow powders and pencils come in. Which one you use generally comes down to personal preference. Some like pencils because they give you greater control when creating fine, hair-like strokes. Powder is great when you have to fill in larger gaps as an angled brush lets you slightly thicker eyebrow feathering. For pencil lovers, try  Ardell Brow pencil, and for powder fans, we recommend  Ardell Brow Defining Powder.

To finish 

Now that you your brows are looking on fleek, it’s time to set all your hard work for good! A pomade is perfect here.  Ardell Brow Pomade  combines the work of a powder, pencil and gel in one to sculpt, fill-in and set brows in place.
