Our brows are the most important feature of our faces. And we’re not just saying that—it’s a scientific fact! Unfortunately, they’re also the most challenging feature to get right. Just having to choose the right brow product—be it a powder, pencil, or gel—is enough to give us serious anxiety.
So, how about we decode the system once and for all? Below, our breakdown of 3 kinds of brows and the beauty fixes for their most common woes. All products by DETAIL!
THE PROBLEM: Bald spots and barely-there definition
THE FIX: Brow powder
STEP 1: Shade in your brow with the medium powder. Use feathery strokes to fill in particularly “naked” gaps.
STEP 2: Layer the darkest powder over the tail of your brow. This will give it a stronger, more polished look.
STEP 3: Apply the lightest powder over your brow bone all the way to the inner corner of the brow. This highlight will add contrast and make your new shape pop.

THE PROBLEM: Missing tail and incomplete arch
THE FIX: Brow pencils or pens
STEP 1: Outline the shape of your natural brow with the pencil.
STEP 2: Fill in any sparse areas with light strokes.
STEP 3: Then, elongate your brow by sketching a tail. Stop when the tail is parallel to the outer corner of the eye. Fill in the tail with the pencil.

THE PROBLEM: Messy strands and mannish shape
THE FIX: Brow mascaras, A.K.A. brow gels
STEP 1: Work the mascara brush against the strands in the inner corner of your brow.
STEP 2: Then, brush these front hairs up.
STEP 3: Finally, comb the gel through the rest of your brow to tidy the hairs. Use an “up and out” motion to get a softer, more natural-looking shape.
