It goes without saying that eyebrows complete the face. Think about it--do you ever leave the house without taking a good look at your arches and ensuring that they’re groomed to the nines? Probably not. Eyebrow maintenance is no easy feat, but thanks to the beauty gods we’ve been able to master it like the pros themselves. We’ve got brow gels, pomades, pencils, powders, and every product you could imagine right at the palm of our hands but in order to make any of those work, we need to start with the one: the eyebrow brush. Now we’re not ones for having a ton of brushes taking up space on our vanity, but this one is crucial. On a good day, you can just brush your brows and go--seriously. On some days, you’ll need a bit more maintenance with the help of a brush, maybe some trimming if you've been using a brow growth serum, and your go-to brow product (but don’t ever ignore the brush). If you’re unsure of which eyebrow brush is best for grooming and styling your own arches, look no further. We’ve put together an easy guide for you to find your next eyebrow staple below.

This unique-shaped brush is built for both filling in and intensifying your arches. The triangular shape allows you to fill in any sparse areas with the pointed tip, and then build up on color with the flatter sides. The spoolie tip on the opposite end of the brush helps remove any excess product and combs out the brows to a fresh, groomed state. It’s perfect for beginners and anyone who likes to experiment a bit more when it comes to their everyday makeup.
