Big bold brows are in vogue—and it seems like this is one beauty trend that is here to stay. What that means: It’s time to brush up on your brow makeup technique! If you’re having trouble creating that perfect-looking arch or are in the midst of growing out your brows, we have a few tips for you. Try these brow hacks to help get your most beautiful-looking arches yet.

Brow Hack #1: Remember That Your Brows Are Sisters Not Twins

A common mistake people often make when it comes to their brows is attempting to make them look exactly alike. But remember: Eyebrows are like snowflakes—no two are quite the same. They should look similar—related so to speak, like sisters.

Brow Hack #2: Find the Best Shape for Your Face

What looks good on one person won’t necessarily look the same way on someone else. If you’re choosing a new look, base your brows on your face shape.

If you have a round face…choose an angular brow shape. Creating strong lines with your brows can help balance the softness and lack of definition in your face. This can help give the appearance of more defined bone structure.

If you have a square face…opposites attract! Try a rounded brow shape. Your new curves can help offset a more angular jaw and soften your features.

If you have a heart-shaped face…you’ll want to go with a controlled shape with a high arch. Adding height to your brows can translate into helping lengthen the look of a shorter jaw.

If you have an oval face…you aren’t constricted by too many rules. Since an oval face is already balanced, you don’t have to depend on your brows. Help accentuate your symmetrical shape with a soft angle.

If you have a long face…keeping your brows horizontal can help stop the eye from traveling downwards and make your face look shorter. Extend the tails of your brows directly to the side to help add visual width to your face.

Brow Hack #3: Try a Brow Stencil

Novices to brow shaping and shading can benefit from using a brow stencil. Just place these plastic stencils over your brows, and use your preferred product to fill inside. Remove the stencil when you’re done, and you’re good to go.

Brow Hack #4: Create a Fade

If you want your brows to look real—which, of course you do—it’s important that they aren’t one solid shape or color. Study any (real) eyebrow for a few seconds and you’ll notice that the hair is generally finer at the front, becoming more concentrated towards the middle and through the tail. To help make your brows not appear tattooed on, it’s essential to replicate this fade when filling them in. Put less product at the front of your brows, adding more as you reach the ends and you’ll achieve a similar look.

Brow Hack #5: Highlight for Definition

When you’re illuminating your face, don’t let your brows feel left out. Use a hint of highlight on them, too! With a liquid highlighter, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator, dot under your brows and blend out using your fingertip. Just a touch of a glow beneath your brows can help give the illusion of a higher arch.

Brow Hack #6: Use Concealer to Shape

If your hands aren’t so steady and your shading skills have some room for improvement, there is an easy fix. Concealer can be used to help give your brows a sharper shape and save even the messiest of arches. Grab a creamy concealer, like one from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing & Contour Kit, and a small concealer brush, and get to work. Just place the product along the edges of your brows and blend outwards to help redefine.

Brow Hack #7: Don’t Magnify Too Much

Magnifying mirrors might seem great in theory—but when you use one, all of a sudden, you’re seeing pores you didn’t even know were there and finding the tiniest of hairs to tweeze away. Then, before you know it, you’ve ended up with too-thin brows. A regular mirror, minus the magnification, should be enough for your grooming needs.

Brow Hack #8: Fill in Prior to Plucking

Instead of going into tweezing out a game plan, fill in your brows first. Use a pencil or powder to help create the exact shape you want, and then only tweeze the hairs that fall outside of the shape you made.
