Your eyebrows are much more than a few wisps of hair above your eyes. They are defining features that make a huge difference to the balance of your face and overall look. Yet, so many women over-pluck their eyebrows or simply don’t know how to make the most of their features. If you want your eyes to look amazing with minimal effort and to give your face more structure, your eyebrows hold the key.

Here’s what you need to know.

Definition and Shaping

Shaping and defining your eyebrows is the first step to getting the low maintenance eyebrows you want. But you probably won’t like the next tip very much: you need to let your eyebrows grow out for a few weeks so that you can see their true shape and potential. After so much plucking, this will be a tough ask but it is worth it to regain a sense of what you have to work with.

For those of you who have already plucked your eyebrows into oblivion, don’t panic. Micro blading is a popular treatment that adds pigment to your skin giving you the illusion of thicker brows. Grow what you can naturally and then use this method to fill out your brows and add greater definition.

Take Care of Your Skin

While you are focused on shaping your eyebrows, you probably aren’t giving the skin underneath enough love and attention. A cooling lotion can really help to calm your skin after plucking and shaping your brows. A homemade lotion is usually the best way to ensure all natural ingredients and the best results. Plus, you can add any essential oils you like to get the scent you love.

You should be thinking about your skin all the time and doing the basics like drinking plenty of water and cleansing after wearing makeup will make a big difference in how it feels. Just because you can’t see the skin under your eyebrows, doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve some attention!

Let Your Eyebrows Be

There are a million and one products you can use on your eyebrows but often, less is more. By reducing the amount that you pluck away and reducing how frequently you do so, you will find that your eyebrows are much healthier in growth and thickness.


There are a lot of different eyebrow fashions at the moment but the main thing to remember is that anything you do should suit your face shape and style. It’s silly to follow any fashion that doesn’t quite fit your personality and your face is pretty central to that! If you are in doubt, it’s always best to leave your brows natural and simply do a bit of tidying around the edges. Seeing a brow specialist is also a good idea as they will be able to give you a more seamless look than you might achieve at home. However, do make sure that you give them thorough instructions for what you want!
