Women constantly work to achieve a naturally perfect look, and part of that look is perfect eyebrows. But perfect eyebrows can be notoriously difficult to get. How do you balance having eyebrows look good with doing them quickly, especially if you are short on time?
Luckily, the following tricks and tips are here to help. Some of the tricks are going to be new and novel while others are tried and true. Let's get started!
Through the years, brows have gone from thin to thick, and I guarantee that trend will reverse multiple times in your lifetime. Avoid overplucking your brows and focus on cleaning up strays at the inner corner and below the brow bone.
Determine where your brows should start
No one wants a unibrow; then again, spacing your eyebrows too far apart can look just as awkward. As a general rule, the inner corner of your eyebrow should line up with your nostril.

Outline with pencil first
There's a definite order to filling in brows, and wax or pencil products usually go on first. Use light strokes to create the overall shape, then fill in sparse spots lightly.
Use two different shades of brow powder
The brow at your inner corner can look heavy and fake if you go too dark, so use a light powder on the inner corner and a darker color from the arch to the tail.
