Perfectly shaped brows can help define eyes, frame the face and complete just about any makeup look. However, regular trips to the spa or salon can get pretty expensive. TODAY Style asked top brow specialists and makeup artists — the ones the celebrities trust — for their favorite drugstore finds to help create gorgeous arches right at home.

Tonya Crooks

Celebrity clients include Megan Fox, Julia Roberts and Fergie.

1. Burt’s Bees Res-Q Ointment ($6, “As a brow expert, you can imagine I’m very particular when it comes to brow products. However, there is a treatment product I swear by that I use everyday on each of my clients and that's Burt’s Bees Res-Q Ointment. This product is great to use as a pre-wax treatment to protect the skin, but would also be a great option as a post-tweezing treatment at home. The blend of ingredients is perfect for soothing the skin and reducing redness."

GLAMSQUAD director of makeup artistry whose celebrity clients include Brooke Shields, Ivanka Trump and Emma Roberts.

5. CoverGirl Clear Brow Gel ($5, “Apply tons of it! Unlike so many gels, it doesn't flake and it has the dual purpose of keeping brows in place while also adding extra texture.”

6. Elnett Hair Spray ($6, “Another super easy way to set brows in place is by using a little bit of hairspray on a spoolie (brush). If you don't have a spoolie, you can wash an old mascara wand with dish soap and turn it into a perfect eyebrow brush — or even use a toothbrush!”

9. Maybelline Eye Studio Sculpting Brow Mascara ($7, “As the key makeup artist for 'Younger' (TV show), I introduced Hilary Duff to an amazing product that she fell in love with. We used it on the show and her brows were always on point. This brow product lifts, defines and adds just the right amount of color to give you a realistic, full-brow effect without looking stamped on.”

Ramy Gafni

Celebrity clients include Ellie Kemper, Naomi Campbell, Britney Spears and Juliana Margulies.

10. Maybelline Eyestudio Brow Drama Pomade Crayon ($10, “I like the soft, blendible formula. The blonde shade is a good, universally flattering shade. Apply to brows, then brush through to blend the product for more natural-looking results.”

11. Revlon Ultimate Slant Tip Tweezer ($9.29, “Revlon’s classic tweezer was the first one I used when I started doing eyebrows, so they hold a special place in my heart. Even though I use my own tweezer now, the Revlon tweezers are good in a pinch — and you can’t beat the price.”

12. Godefroy Instant Eyebrow Tint Permanent Eyebrow Color Kit ($12.95, “This is a good option if you need to dye your eyebrows, but can’t get to the salon. Choose a shade that’s a shade or two lighter than your existing eyebrow color for the most natural results.”

15. TWEEZERMAN Facial Hair Scissors ($17, “Try lifting brows straight up with a spoolie and using scissors. For men (especially), it's very important you lift upward and trim only to even the brow, not change the shape.”

Lauren O'Leary

Celebrity clients include Nikki Taylor, Charlotte McKinney and Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia Gerber.

16. Maybelline Master Shape Eyebrow Pencil, ($7, “What I love about these pencils is that they have a very fine tip, which makes it easy to give the brows a very natural look. It twists up, so you don't have to reach for a pencil sharpener. The other end has a small little brush resembling a mascara wand so you can comb through the brows during the process of application.”
