It just takes a little practice and finesse — and the extra work is totally worth it, since perfected brows can transform any face in an instant, framing the eyes and giving you a well-groomed look.

Do: Seek help from a professional
An expert will help you find your desired brow shape. And once you have that, you can use it as the base to work from when you do your own touch-ups at home.

Don't: Look in a magnifying mirror
It might be tempting to use a magnifying mirror — but they can actually give you a false perspective of how your brows look, since they have a slight fish eye effect that distorts their appearance. Instead, use a regular mirror and focus on how your brows look on your entire face. And if you want something that'll help you see the detail work, try a lighted mirror instead (we're fans of the iHome Vanity Mirror, $79.99 — it even plays music!).

Do: Apply concealer to hide re-growth
Most people don't realize that in order to wax effectively, your brows should be around a quarter of an inch long (which yes, is a hefty amount of regrowth). That said, you can always use an opaque concealer (such as the popular Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, $30) on them to camouflage until they're long enough to tweeze.

Don't: Use a razor
Threading, tweezing and waxing are the most precise ways to achieve brow perfection. Though tempting, using a razor is just too risky.
