How we would describe Issa Rae's eyebrows? There's nothing awkward about her arches. That's because the actress and COVERGIRL ambassador has celebrity makeup artist Joanna Simkin working on her for all of her red carpet appearances.

Since over-tweezing and plucking in the early 2000s has left many of us feeling insecure about our brows, InStyle turned to Simkin for her easy hack on how to fake the appearance of fuller arches. What was most surprising about the makeup artist's technique? There's no brow pencil required. Instead, Simkin uses a clear brow gel, and the key is how you go about applying it.
