The Key to Getting Thicker Eyebrows, According to the Pros

Bold, thick brows have been taking center stage in recent years. For those of us envious of bushy arches — or perhaps are still dealing with the consequences of the over-tweezing of yesteryear — there’s still hope for realizing one’s dream of luscious arches. Thanks to the magic of eyebrow makeup, anyone can learn how to get thicker eyebrows. All it takes is the right products, tools and techniques. To help with that, we speed-dialed celebrity brow artist Joey Healy and Hollywood makeup artist Min Min Ma for their styling and shading tips and tricks for fuller brows.

Ma gravitates towards a clear brow gel since it works well for everyone, no matter their brow shade.

Brow artistry is a skill that requires the right tools. For Healy, that includes a double-ended brow brush with an angled brush on one end to apply brow powder, and a spooly on the other to comb hairs and blend and distribute product evenly. For shaping brows, he adds that a good pair of tweezers and scissors are also a must in everyone's brow kit, but only for minimal grooming. "Many people think in order to get an arch they have to take their tweezers and carve it out," Healy says. "But this could cause the brow to look too thin."
