In order to have bold and beautiful it is essential that they grow fully. Let your eyebrows grow before you start trimming them.

  1. Plot the brow start and finish ends

Start by plotting the position of your brows. Line up a pencil at the base of your nostrils. The point where it crosses your brow should be the point where your eyebrow should begin from. Turn the pencil towards the ears at an angle of 45 degrees. At this point your eye brow should end with the arch.

If you have thin brow hair, there is nothing to worry. You can still use some tricks to fake fuller   brows. Apply a thin layer of brow powder gently over the brows and fill the gaps with a natural shade of darker brow powder filling in the gaps. While powder is best for oily skin, pencil works best for dry skin. While choosing an eye brow pencil prefer a shade similar to that of the color of your brow hair and not the hair on your head as both of them are quite different.

  1. Use wax or eyebrow gel

While applying a brow pencil use brow wax or setting cream in order to help your brows stay in place for longer time. A good quality eyebrow gel serves the same purpose. It is same as that of a mascara for your lashes to make them appear full and large.
