Beautiful brows are a few strokes away with Benefit Cosmetics Brow Kits, as proven by three inspiring personalities including Nor Soraya Ghazalie, Yasmin Johan Soh and Thanuja Ananthan

If you've always wanted to own a pair of bangin' brows but can't seem to pick which product from Benefit Cosmetics' extensive Brow Collection to suit your brows, the brand has got a lineup of special brow kits that are tailored to your needs (which in this case happens to be a set of skimpy brows). This October, you can now get your hands on three different brow kits to create three different looks that you can wear everyday. Whether you are going for a soft and natural look, a more refined and defined set of brows, or a bold dramatic effect, Benefit's Brow Kits can primp your brows in a flash. 

Below, we spoke to Benefit's National Brow Artist, Rileen Chua as she demonstrates how to achieve these looks with the help of three beautiful personalities who have real-life brow dilemmas of their own:

Nor Soraya Ghazalie, yoga instructor and PR director

Benefit's Soft and Natural Brows Kit includes High Brow Eyebrow HighlighterReady, Set, Brow! Clear Brow GelGoof Proof Eyebrow Pencil, and Straight and Arched Eyebrow Stencils.

How to achieve the look:

1. Pick from four different shaping stencils (Arched or straight? Your choice!) and use Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil to trace along the stencil to create a baseline for your brows.

2. Once you've got the baseline, remove the stencil and fill in the rest of your brows and apply Ready, Set, Brow! Clear Brow Gel to keep your hairs in place.

3. Accentuate the shape using High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter under your brow following the arch for an eye-opening effect.

How to achieve the look:

1. Apply Browvo! Conditioning Primer as a primer to tame your brows and to ensure the brow products stay in place.

2. Use the brow mapping tool to mark and shape the start, arch and end of your brows.

3. Then fill in with Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil in light, hair-like strokes and blend with the built in spoolie on the other end of the pencil.

4. Don't forget to apply and blend High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter under your brows for a defined arch.
