A lot of people comment on my eyebrows — and I don’t mean that in a ‘braggy’ way at all, but it’s true. I do get a lot of compliments on them, so I wanted to share the wealth + my vast very little, and self-taught, knowledge about eyebrows.

In all honesty, though, I do pride myself on my brows. I truly do believe that eyebrows are the cornerstone of a person’s face; they frame the eyes, help you express yourself, and we’d just look REALLY weird without them.

I have a set of brow maintenance rules that I abide by in order to keep them tamed — because nobody likes unruly brows –and there are only TWO I believe should be followed at all times:

  1. Maintenance is key! — pluck any little random hairs daily to keep your brows looking clean between clean-up’s. If you have to tweeze out more than three-five stray hairs, it’s time to get them cleaned up.
  2. Don’t go tweezer-crazy! — less is more. Your natural brow shape is DESIGNED for your face, so use it!


ShadowSense is my FAVORITE product to use in my brows. It’s water-resistant, blends out SO nicely, looks natural AF + is also loaded with SenePlex complex (so your the skin under your brows is actually getting skincare benefits)! It’s super pigmented so a little bit will go a long way, and because it’s cream to powder — HELLO NO SHATTER IF YOU DROP IT!

There are four colors that (in my opinion) are perfect for brows: Moca Java, Garnet, Smoked Topaz + Onyx.

If you find that none of these are your color, SURPRISE!! — you can MIX COLORS TOGETHER!

For brunettes with a more red undertone, a little dab of Onyx will deepen Garnet into your ideal shade. If you’re blonde, but more on the strawberry side, a smidge of Garnet will slightly warm up Moca Java. The versatility of this product still astounds me to this day.


Like the title of this post states, there are FIVE STEPS I follow:

✔︎  use a spooli to comb them into their natural shape
✔︎  using an angle brush, outline the bottom of your brow
✔︎  using that same brush, outline the top of your brow
✔︎  fill in any remaining spots, making sure to define + outline the outer edge
✔︎  brush your spooli through to soften them for a more natural-looking finish

I’ve been doing this little routine for so long, I’ve pretty much gotten it down to a science. There’s minimal effort, and because I’m using the natural shape of my brows, there’s no second guessing or extra work involved in having to carve out a new shape (or alter the one you already have into something unnatural)!
