    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

    1. First things, first – a well-groomed brow is a properly prepped brow. It's super important to get a hold of stray hairs for fleeky eyebrows!

    2. One option for that would be plucking hair with a tweezer if you can stand the slight pain and removing them strand by strand won't actually bring tears to your eyes.,

    Promising Review: "I really like these tweezers. The fairly large form combined with the painted texture makes them easy to grip and use, which is very nice for someone with larger hands. The silver gripping tip surface is also large, which enables you to cover a larger surface area more quickly than with regular tweezers." –Brandon

    Get them from Amazon for $9.97. Also available in blue or pink.

    3. Another painless option would be lightly shaving around your eyebrows with some special eyebrow razors, especially if you have sensitive skin!,

    Promising Review: "This is my first time using a razor for my eyebrows and I am so happy with these. They don't pull painfully or bring discomfort. They're small and easy to maneuver for different angles. I used it with both dry and wet skin, and while it was easier with wet, it definitely works both ways." –Nicole

    Get them from Amazon for $4.14.

    4. If you're having trouble figuring out how to shape your brows, Benefit's Bigger And Bolder Kit includes stencils to precisely outline your eyebrows for the perfect fit!

    Ok, but did you know that Benefit Cosmetics will offer a free brow arch for your birthday?! Seems cool as hell!

    Promising Review: "This product changed my life. I over-plucked my brows to the point of no return, and they are light and hard to see. With this product, I'm able to finally have brows that I'm proud of! The stencil makes it very easy to get the perfect shape!" –MichelleOkitty

    Get it from Sephora for $34. Available in two other shades.

    5. While it isn't always necessary before you fill in your brows, you can lightly place brow primer on the hairs there to assure they won't move anywhere while you're applying product.,

    Promising Review: "This pencil is everything for me. I have very sparse brows, so I put this down before I apply my eyebrow powder to fill in my brows. It was really difficult for me to create a natural arched brow prior to finding this." –NavyGirl88

    Get it from Sephora for $21.

    6. Get an angled brushβ€”ideal for tracing the outline and arch of your popping-ass brows, especially if you're using pomade.,

    Promising Review: "I got this brush because I lost my Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow brush and it works just as well for half the price! It is a bit smaller, so it'd work great for gel eyeliner as well. I use it for my brows with the dipbrow pomade and I love it. I've been using it for a few months now and it's held up really nicely." –Tricia

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    7. Speaking of pomade, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow is so well loved for a reason – it's smudge-free, waterproof, and blends easily with the hair on your eyebrows for a fuss-free application.,

    Promising Review: "A little goes a long way, the product is super pigmented and stayed on no matter what! I got fleek brows thanks to the flick of my wrist and this nice pomade." –Noushun1226

    Get it from Sephora for $18 or Amazon for $18+. Available in 11 shades.

    8. So you really don't enjoy the thought of outlining and filling in your brows, it's a lot of work anyways! With a tinted eyebrow gel like Wunderbrow, you can get the dramatics of a bolder brow with the least amount of effort.

    Promising Review: "I have somewhat uneven, over-plucked eyebrows and on my left eyebrow I have a scar from a childhood accident where hair doesn't grow in. I tried this product and was sold from the first use. My eyebrows now look fuller and more defined, and I don't have to be worried that they will rub off. I also LOVE how natural they look! No more 'Crayola eyebrows' here. If you are eyebrow-challenged like myself, this is your product." –awbeesmommy

    Get it from Amazon for $21.77. Available in five shades.

    9. Ok, so what if soft and subtle is more your vibe? Lightly filling in your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil and then going over it with a spoolie brush gives you definition without going overboard.,

    Promising Review: "I love this product!! I have never used the brow wiz before, so I don't know if this is a dupe. But let me tell you, this brow pencil is so, so creamy. It glides on very easily, and the pigmentation is on point! I don't feel the need to go out and try the brow wiz out anymore." –4436

    Get it from Amazon for $6.74. Available in five shades.

    10. And if all of those options aren't to your liking, an eyebrow powder like NYX Cake Powder gives you the option of building up to the intensity of pomade depending on how much you use.,

    Promising Review: "Way better than using a pencil or liquid! It's a great quality, and makes you look A1 effortlessly! It isn't heavy, stays on all day, and you could touch it multiple times and it'll still be there and look good – no smudges or anything." –CYC Apache

    Get it from Amazon for $6. Available in six shades.

    11. Plus, lightly applying brow powder to the beginning of your eyebrows accentuates the bridge of your nose!

    12. For a well-polished finish, you can use a bit of concealer slightly lighter than your skin tone to clean up stray lines.,

    Promising Review: "Love this for my eyebrows, I use it daily." –TC10

    Get it from Amazon for $3.74+. Available in 26 shades.

    13. And preferably with a concealer brush for extra accuracy.

    Promising Review: "Great brush, I love it. I washed it a couple of times and there's no shedding, awesome!" –Rosa D.

    Get it from BH Cosmetics for $3.50.

    14. For all of the heavy-handed people out there that don't trust themselves with concealer and a brush, Benefit Cosmetics High Brow Highlight pencil lifts the bottom of your eyebrows for an accentuated arch!

    Promising Review: "I love to use this product to add highlight to my brows and even clean them up. The pencil is super creamy, and blends out so easily that I don't even need a brush. There is a noticeable difference when I use this, and I absolutely love the look it gives!" –nicoledicamillo

    Get it from Sephora for $22.

    15. And a clear eyebrow gel can set your amazingly filled-in brows that will last through a particularly wild-ass nap!,

    Promising Review: "I bought this product to use as a brow gel. My eyebrow hairs tend to be on the long side and can get a little out of control. This clear mascara keeps them in place. I use it both with and without filling in my eyebrows. The product looks very thick in the tube, but it is actually very light when applied. It does not leave any residue or flake, and my eyebrows still feel soft to the touch after applying. This is a great alternative for people who would like clear eyebrow gel but don't want to spend $20-$30 for a tiny tube of it." –Kristen

    Get it from Amazon for $4.44.

    16. Finally, if you would like your brows to sparkle to high heaven, Sephora Collection Brow Highlighting Gel can give your eyebrows an amazing, show-stopping shimmer because why the fuck not?

    Promising Review: "I really like this product. I use different hues on my brows depending on how I feel and I also like shimmer on my brows for something different and new. I have this brand in medium brown, and I'm going to get the bronze and gold next." –darlenam

    Get it from Sephora for $12. Available in 4 shades.
