I don't remember the last time I went to a salon to get my brows done. These Sally Hanson wax strips don't irritate my skin, they don't hurt and they let me control the shape of my brows.

Perfect brows require a lot of grooming. To get the best shape, you'll need a spooly brush to help tame stray hairs and an angled brush to get the perfect arch. I love a duel-ended brush because they shave seconds off of my morning routine and they're perfect for packing in my beauty kit when I travel.

Boxy brows and the ultimate beauty faux-pas. I love this powder brow palette because it offers two color options to ensure the your brows look natural once your finish filling them in. I use the lighter tone for the beginning of my brows and the draker shade to build up the fullness of my brows towards the ends.

For pesky brow hairs that are hard to reach, these tweezers are a must-have. They're comfortable to hold and allow to to grab even the finest strands of hair.

I love a good creamy concealer. This formula from Nars blends seamlessly with my skin tone, doesn't crease and is super long-wearing. In between waxes, I'll outline my brows with a little concealer and blend with my concealer brush.

In between waxes, your stray hair may start to show, cover them up with your favorite concealer and blend with a densely packed concealer brush like this one from Cover FX.

The final step in perfecting your brows is setting them with a brow tamer. I love this transluscent formula from Formula X. It's lightweight and keeps every hair in place.
