The struggle for 'on fleek' brows these days is super real and any hack you can get will definitely come in handy.

This is why we have given you 5 secret hacks, (at least secrets for we laymen) to help achieve that elusive look you crave.

Read on for these trending hacks.

Blend with two shades.

To make brows look longer, we suggest using a pencil or powder slightly lighter than your hair color on the inside corners and one the same color as your hair through the arch and tail. Most brow powders come in duos, one light shade, one dark, for this reason.

Add highlights.

Take a contrasting cream shadow (like a soft gold) and trace it over the brow with a soft shadow brush. "You are glazing the brow with a highlight color, same as if you had highlights in your hair," says makeup artist Dick Page. Always comb through with a clean spooley brush.

Never pluck grays.

"That can sabotage the shape of your brows," cautions New York City brow groomer Eliza Petrescu. Instead, cover grays with tinted brow gel or get them professionally dyed.

Resist the urge to tweeze.

Nine times out of ten, all you need to do is trim. Comb your brows straight up with a spooley brush, then lightly snip only the longest hairs with eyebrow scissors. Now put down the scissors to keep your eyebrows from looking like they got a buzz cut.

Fake a higher arch.

If you highlight right above the arch (in addition to below), it gives the illusion of raised brows. Use a highlighter or cream eye shadow that's one shade lighter than your foundation to "draw an arch directly above your arch," says Madron. Blend with your finger until the product fades but doesn't disappear.
