Joey Healy is one of the foremost eyebrow specialists in New York. He knows that eyebrows are not "one size fits all."
First, use a tweezer (or an eyebrow pencil) and line it up against your face to map out where your eyebrow should begin and end on your face.
For thinner eyebrows, follow these guidelines for filling in with a pencil. If you prefer to use an eyebrow brush and powder, the same guidelines apply.
And for thick eyebrows, focus on grooming hairs around your natural brow.
Now, for the specifics. The eyebrow type you have will determine your grooming details.
For over-tweezed eyebrows: Focus on filling in sparse areas and getting rid of stray hairs.
For those with a smaller forehead: Focus on maximizing the space between your eyebrows and your hairline.
For patchy eyebrows: Focus on uniform density.
For eyebrows that are already thick: Focus on cleaning up around the brow itself.
For eyebrows with no arch: Focus on using a highlighter and a pencil to create the appearance of an arch.
For unruly eyebrows: Focus on trimming really long hairs and tweezing underneath the head and the tail of the eyebrow.
For thick eyebrows that have "sprouts" at the head: Focus on filling in the head and cleaning up the tail.
For round eyebrows: Focus on using a pencil to create an arch further away from the center of the eyebrow.
All hail the brow master Joey Healy.
