Spring is here, so it’s time to emerge from your year-long, pandemic-induced hibernation and finally give those poor, neglected eyebrows a little TLC. (You have just enough time to whip those arches into shape before the vaccine gives us a little taste of summer freedom.) While years past have given us clear-cut brow trends, 2021 has been a bit more free-flowing, with some rocking dramatic Instagram brows, while others are simply combing and separating in the A.M. Whether you’re using the soap method to achieve a slicked-up, feathered brow or just applying some gel, here are our picks of the best eyebrow brushes for every look.
