But thanks to the pandemic, we don’t really have much of an option other than taking matters into our own hands. While, this might seem scary — I mean, you don’t wanna overdo your brows and end up looking like you were going through a ‘phase’ (even though you probably are. We all are) — with the right tips and tools, it is indeed possible to maintain your brows at home.

Read on as we share some amazing tips and tricks to help you maintain ‘em brows at home before you feel safe enough to visit a salon again…

If you’re someone who feels confident about tweezing their own brows, then it is advisable to use a slant tip tweezer to avoid pulling the hair out too hard as this can be painful. Be sure that you do not over tweeze as this could ruin the shape of your brows permanently. It is better to just get rid of the extras and follow it up with a toner to soothe the skin.

Whatever your choice of tool for grooming your brow is (tweezing, threading, etc.), avoid going overboard at all costs — as this could ruin the shape of your brows. You can always pluck those stray hair, but avoid waxing your brows at all costs as this has the maximum potential to be a disaster.

In order to tame your brows instantly without resorting to DIY hair removal methods, it is advisable to try the age old clear soap and spoolie method. Simply wet your spoolie just a little and run it over the soap bar. Next, comb your lashes with this spoolie and fill in the gaps with your usual brow pencil, if needed. This little trick helps to give your brows a defined shape and tames those strays like never before.
