We all want different things when it comes to our eyebrows. So instead of telling you exactly how to do yours, we think it only makes sense to give you as many options as possible.

Ahead, 11 pro makeup artists reveal their best tips for achieving your best brows ever. Who knows? Your new holy grail brow trick could be one of them!

1. Jigs Mayuga

"Strive for symmetry and balance instead of trying to achieve an exact replica of both brows. Remember your brows are supposed to be sisters, not twins."

2. Jason Delos Reyes

"Like skin, eyebrows need to be exfoliated, too—it can stimulate hair growth. You can use eyelash enhancer serum for your eyebrows too."

3. Mac Igarta

"Everyone's obsessed with thick brows 'cause it’s the trend today but TBH, it's not for everyone. Embrace the [brows] you have right now. Try correcting the brows rather than drawing new ones. Just fill in the sparse areas and brush your brows upward to have a lifted face effect. With the ECQ you may wanna try to let the hair on the sparse area grow, too. The easiest way, though, is microblading. It's life changing."

4. Mikka Marcaida

"Stop overplucking. Thick natural brows are very in. If you are not blessed with lots of hair, fake it using an eyebrow pen and mimic [strands with] hair-like strokes. Finish it off with a good brow mascara or hairspray to hold it in place."

5. MJ Bornales

"Stop filling out your eyebrows heavily with one single stroke. Use a flicking motion in the direction where your hair grows. Do not over extend the tail of your eyebrows. Doing so will create a droopy effect and will make you look sad."

6. Slo Lopez

"For me building technique is super important versus product. How you hold the brush and control the pressure of your lines during application really matters to get the results you want. Also, brushing your brow hairs up and down with a spoolie to check for sparse spots and get a clear idea of the shape."

7. Justine Navato

"Use a retractable brow pencil with a fine tip or a well sharpened pencil to draw natural hair like strands. For more definition use an eyebrow pen."

8. Mark Qua

"I love coating the hairs with clear mascara after defining or filling the brows since it gives more life to the brows. It also sets them in place."

9. Anthea Bueno

"Apply brow mascara first. Comb brows into place after this you will see where the actual sparse areas are. Draw on those areas with short hairlike strokes and voila, natural looking brows. That’s my trick so I don’t overdo brows."

10. Sydney Matterson

"For a feathered look that’ll last all day, use an eyelash adhesive [as brow gel]."

11. Nikki Duque-Martinez

"Use eyebrow mascara that has fibers to fill in your brows easily. And then, just brush them up."

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
