If there’s anything about my face that I obsess about, it’s my brows. Ever since the day I learned to maneuver a pair of tweezers back in sophomore year of highschool, my arches have never been the same. And while others keep their waxers on speed dial, I’ve always taken pride in shaping my own brows. (Sure, I do get professional help from time to time, but the work is still mostly me.) So to help you get started with grooming your own arches, here are a few tools you ought to invest in.

When it comes to grooming your arches, plucking has the most precision. Invest in a quality pair of tweezers with a sharp angled tip that’ll give you cleaner results.
2. A spoolie brush concealer

Sure, people compliment you for having a thick set of brows that rivals Cara Delevingne’s, but what they don’t know is how much effort you put in to keep them tamed. Keep them in place by brushing them up with a handy-dandy spoolie.
3. Hair wax

Now that you’ve got your spoolie, you’ll need something to hold the hair in place. When brow gel isn’t available, brush a small amount of hair wax on your brows to keep your arches tamed. It’s also a great base product for when you want to use your brown eye shadow to fill in gaps.
4. Brow pencil

The slanted tip is perfect for filling in the gaps of a naked brow. It also has a spoolie brush on one end so you can buff it out.
5. A small pair of scissors

Going back to Cara and her thick busy arches, notice how the strands are perfectly of equal length with almost zero flyaways. This is because her makeup artist holds a small pair of scissors close to her eyeballs to trim the hairs to perfection. Grab a small nipper and keep it close by.
6. A magnifying mirror
