Brow Tool Kit

We asked brow guru Sania Vucetaj, the owner of Sania’s Brow Bar in New York, to tell us the must-have tools for shaping and maintaining perfect-looking brows. Here are her favorites—plus important tips for what to avoid

Tools to create perfect brows

Tweezerman

Tweezers:

My favorite is Tweezerman’s stainless steel slant tip tweezers. The precision is great and they last forever. These stylish tweezers may look girly, but their sharply filed steel tips get the job done.

Brow Brush:

This MAC 266 angled brush is great for applying powder over sparse brows or to just enhance and perfect the shape.

revlon

Small Scissors:

Revlon’s Brow Scissors come with a mascara wand that you can use to brush your brows upward to easily trim any hairs that are slightly longer.

Brow Pencil:

These are used to fill in any gaps. My favorite is the Paul & Joe Beaute 02 eyebrow pencil. Opt for a shade that matches you hair color. After you apply, blend in the color using a mascara wand.

Brow Powder:

Similar to a pencil, this is used to cover any sparseness in your eyebrow. Paula Dorf makes some great shades. And when choosing a color, select one that is a little bit lighter than your brows. For especially thin brows, outline your brow with a pencil and then use the powder over the whole brow. Be sure to blend everything in with your mascara wand to achieve a truly natural look.

Avoid:

Brow Gel: Brow gels are very sticky and in my experience, they can make brow hairs fall out or become sparse. Use it for special occasions if you must, but if you’re shaping and trimming properly, you shouldn’t need it.

Stencils: Stencils are cookie cutters, which don’t work because everyone’s brows are a different length and width, and the arches that fall differently. It's a disaster waiting to happen.
