Okay, you might argue that you do this every single day. But do you actually take time to make sure that the skin under your brows? This one would just require a few more seconds while you moisture your face, but it actually does a lot for your brows.

If you aren’t in love with natural oils yet, you’re missing a lot. Oils have grown in popularity because of the miraculous things they can do for your hair and skin. Different oils offer different benefits, but there are a lot that can also help you with your brow growth. Castor oil, for instance, is often use for treatments that promote hair growth. Coconut oil on the other hand minimizes protein loss when hair is damaged, while almond oil softens the hair and leads to stronger and thicker strands.

Ask for a professional’s help.
There’s a lot we can do on our own, but it doesn’t hurt to seek an expert’s guidance. Especially when you’re not that talented on grooming your eyebrows. Consulting an eyebrow expert will not only ensure that your eyebrow shape properly matches your face, but you can also ask about how to take care of your brows.
Pluck the strays for a cleaner look.
Once you got your hair properly shaped, it’s easier to maintain its shape on your own. Just lookout for a strays that will probably start to grow after a few weeks, and get your trusty tweezers and mirror. Pluck the stray strands, but make sure to not overdo it as you don’t want to lose the professionally done shape. As for those bushy brow, use mini scissors to trim them.

Use proper makeup for a full gorgeous look.
We totally stan putting on makeup to get that full look, but what we don’t want are those products that might affect the healthy growth of the brows. For a full brow natural look, we suggest you use eyebrow powder for a gentle application. Eyebrow powders don’t pull the skin, which may lead to stunted hair growth in some cases. Use of eyebrow pencils is alright too, especially when you need to cover sparse areas or scars.
Best brow powders and pencils to use:
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo ($23)
- BENEFIT COSMETICS Foolproof Brow Powder ($24)
- KAT VON D Brow Struck Dimension Powder ($20)
- Hourglass’s Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil ($34)
- DIOR Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil ($29)
