Check out these 17 genius tricks for getting the best damn eyebrows of your life, from Buzzfeed:
1. First of all, figure out what you’re working with.

That way, you’ll be able to figure out whether you should add, subtract, or change the shape of your brows. More here.
3. As a rule of thumb, the head (AKA where the brow begins) of your eyebrows should line up with your nostrils.
Don’t remove hair past that point.
5. Use a brow pencil to fill in your brows BEFORE you pluck so you don’t overdo it.

To really make the outlying hairs obvious, use a brighter pencil color (like white) and wipe it off with makeup remover when you’re done.
6. Stand back from your mirror so you can see the whole picture.

Getting too close usually means getting over-eager with the tweezers.
7. Once you’ve plucked, use a spoolie brush to brush up your brows. Any hairs that stick up above the brow line can be trimmed with a small pair of nail scissors.

Just remember: You can always trim more. Go slowly.
8. When you’re done, you can apply witch hazel to the area if it’s especially red or irritated.

Start with pencil, blend everything with a spoolie brush, fill in with gel, then use a highlighter just underneath.
14. You can get fancy by using a lighter brow color at the head and a darker color at the arch. It’s kind of like contouring for your brows.

15. Or, if you’re not into doing your brows every day, you can get them professionally tinted.

Check reviews on Yelp before making an appointment. Depending on the treatment, it can last anywhere from 2-6 weeks.
16. You can also go the route of eyelash extensions for special occasions (because they sometimes don’t last longer than a week).
