The exact brow look you want is actually so easy.
Brows are arguably the most defining feature on your face, so seeing a pro for regular threading, waxing, or tweezing (you do you) is helpful, but you’re on your own when it comes to daily makeup. And what's not so helpful is having a ton of different products and a not-so-steady hand. As it turns out, a few simple techniques and one product per look are all you need for arched perfection. Below, we break it down one style at a time.
You know that feeling when you do something slightly different with your makeup and everyone keeps complimenting you even though they can’t quite put their finger on why they love your look? This trick will do that for you. Brush brows upwards on a 45-degree angle (not straight up in the air or you’ll look…surprised) with L'Oréal Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara to ever-so-slightly shade in brows and keep them in place.
Bonus Style: If you’re cool with your general shape, just use the Brow Stylist to set your look—the teeny spoolie applicator gives you total control of even the littlest rogue hairs.

To fill in gaps and sparse areas, use a super-thin pencil, like the L'Oréal Brow Stylist Definer. The ultra-precise tip lets you draw tiny brow hairs. Use light, feathered strokes to mimic the look of natural hairs. The harder you press, the darker the line, so make sure to use a light touch.

If shaped, full brows are what you’re after, reach for a triangular brow pencil, like the L'Oréal Brow Stylist Shape & Fill Mechanical Pencil. Use the pointed tip to sketch the shape you want and the base of the triangle to fill it in completely with soft strokes. Then use the spoolie on the opposite end to brush through, blending the pencil with your brow hairs for a natural finish.

To make thin, sparse brows beautifully bold, use a tinted pomade, like L'Oréal Brow Stylist Frame & Set, which helps you create strokes that mimic the appearance of your own brow hairs. Start by drawing a line with a thin brush at the base of the brow shape you want for your finished look. Then, draw the hairs on like you’re painting a feather. Work slowly, checking your progress by standing a few feet away from the mirror every couple strokes to make sure you’re not going overboard. Finish by brushing through brows with a spoolie.
