DIY Statement Eyebrows

You've seen them everywhere... statement eyebrows that give 1980s Brooke Shields a run for her money. Sure, they're a bit more groomed and a bit more streamlines this time around, but thicker brows are back and here to stay for at least a little while. 

If you want to bolster your brows, without going to the expense of trying to regrow them, I've included my DIY statement eyebrow formula below. 
DIY Statement Eyebrows

brow comb || angled brow brush || eyebrow kit || clear brow gel

First, you're going to want to purchase the proper tools. I used this brow comb (the metal teeth are fabulous for detangling lashes, though that is a post for another day) and an angled brow brush, like this one. 

Next, you're going to want to purchase a gel eyebrow kit (I use this one from Target that is $3... seriously $3), because the thicker material helps you to build a thicker brow. To set your brow, invest in a good brow gel. I would recommend using a clear formula unless you have really light eyebrows that you're looking to darken. 

Start by combing out your brows. Dip your angled brow brush in the eyebrow kit and begin filling in your brows. Use swift, even strokes to ensure that the product goes on smoothly and doesn't look drawn on. Work with the existing shape of your eyebrows for the most natural effect. (The point is to amplify, not defy!) Once you've achieved your desired thickness, gently comb through your brows with the clear brow gel to set them. The last step is to comb through your lashes a final time with your brow comb to ensure that the gel is incorporated into your brows. Use the product in your eyebrow kit to touch up any holes and you're good to go!
