Beauty tips and tricks are all over the internet. The collarbone-grazing lob hairstyle, the perfectly matte lips and the flawless "natural" makeup tutorials are just a few of the trends that have been huge over the past couple of years, and it doesn't look like they're going away anytime soon.
However, one of the most talked-about beauty trends gracing our Pinterest boards are eyebrows. Back in the early 2000s, people loved to pluck their eyebrows to get that perfectly thin line, but now we're in 2017 and it's all about the thick, natural-looking brow.
While some people are blessed with naturally flawless eyebrows, some of us have to work a little bit harder to make them look how we want them to. If you want a more natural look without making any permanent changes, check out these awesome tips:
1. Get a good brow pencil
Brow pencils come in all shapes and sizes, but you need to have a good one. Make sure the pencil shade matches your hair color for the most natural look. Vogue suggests a few of the very best brow pencils, including MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, Urban Decay's (waterproof) Brow Beater and the Precision Brow Pencil by NYX.
2. Use this tinted brow gel
Blissful Brows eyebrow gel is so awesome and has great customer reviews. Remember, a little goes a long way, and the gel will tint your eyebrows to a beautiful color and volumize them. If you're looking to try something long-lasting, waterproof and smudge-proof, you should definitely try it out.
When it comes to your brows, less product is more. Don't cake on the powder or the gel, because it will look unnatural. Use just a smidge of product, and apply it until you get your ideal, natural-looking brow.
I think we've all over-plucked our eyebrows before, and it can be a pain trying to grow them back out. Castor oil can help in growing your brows to your ideal length and volume. Before you get in bed, apply the oil to your eyebrows with a cotton swab. According to Livestrong, you should notice a difference within six weeks.
The worst thing you can do when you're trying to get your dream eyebrows is over-tweeze. If you must clean up the skin around your brows every once in a while, draw an outline of where you want your brows to be with a brow pencil. Doing this will keep your shape and prevent you from tweezing inside the lines.
6. Give them a trim
One of the best ways to keep your brows looking thick and fresh is to give them a little trim. If your brows are feeling a little unruly, simply brush them upward and trim the tips with nail scissors. Just be careful not to go too short!
